Xbox Ultimate Game Sale Discounts Over 700 Games | Gaming
Without a doubt, there have been a slew of major sales this season, such as the Steam Summer Sale to the PlayStation Mid-Year Sale. Now, however, it’s Microsoft’s turn to give owners of its current generation system and last-gen console the chance to grab some deep discounts, as its annual Ultimate Game Sale is live on the Microsoft Store. With this being the case, Xbox fans will be able to get their hands on over 700 games that have been marked down in price.
As indicated in the promotional image below, this year’s Xbox Ultimate Game Sale will last for several days, and end on July 30, 2018. As it so happens, the discounts aren’t just for games on the Xbox One, but also Xbox 360 titles and add-ons are on sale for up to 65% off as well. What’s more is that those who happen to be Xbox Live Gold members receive an extra 10% off select titles in both of the consoles’ catalogs.
In addition to having such popular titles being offered at more inexpensive prices – blockbuster games like Dark Souls 3 and Gears of War 4 have both been priced at $20, for instance – the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale has also taken $20 off the original cost for 12 months of Xbox Live Gold. Plus, Microsoft’s game subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, is also on sale right now, with folks being able to spend $10 to get a three-month membership to download and play a selection of over a hundred games on Xbox One, including first-party games the same day they’re released.
All things considered, the huge price cuts that this year’s Xbox Ultimate Game Sale brings to the table will certainly please the myriad Microsoft fans out there looking for some solid deals that won’t break the bank. And with both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass being discounted for the next few days, it will be interesting to see if the Xbox One receives a major bump in the number of users engaging with the two online services.
