Xbox's Digital Sale Is Pretty Damn Good

Image: Gizmodo

It's not just retailers that are getting into the spirit of the season by throwing huge discounts on games. Xbox has gotten in on the act as well, and there are plenty of solid deals available after the jump.

The discounts will be available through the Xbox Games Store (accessible online or through the console) until early morning April 18. You can view the full list of discounts over on the Major Nelson blog, but to save you time here's a list of the better offerings with their Australian prices. Note that you'll need Xbox Live Gold to get the prices below.

Shadow Warrior: $7.34
Pixel Piracy: $3.10
Just Cause 3: $24.99
Life is Strange (All Episodes): $6.74
Murdered Soul Suspect: $6.74
Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition: $9.99
Deus Ex Mankind Divided: $29.99
The Telltale Games Collection: $46.49
Assassin's Creed Triple Pack (Black Flag, Unity, Syndicate): $46.18
Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls: $26.38

Not a bad mix there. Gears 4 is reasonably priced, given what other retailers are selling it for right about now, and there are some good deals on older games if you haven't picked them up. Sunset Overdrive is super good value at that price, and Just Cause 3 at $25 is a good pick too. Overcooked is a top party game, as is the third Jackbox pack, and everyone should play Wolfenstein The New Order if they haven't already. It'll be a nice looking game at 4K, too. And Geometry Wars 3 for under $7 is a steal.

Don't forget to compare with retail deals, though. You should be able to get some slightly better deals on Battlefield 1 and other AAA titles. Not many stores have Quantum Break lying around, for instance, but I wouldn't be surprised if you can get it for less than $30. Here's our stories on the Target and Big W sales this week, so you can see for yourself.

Target's Upcoming Game Sale Is Very Good

It starts this Wednesday. There's a Switch for $469, a PlayStation 4 deal for $329 and a ton of quality games under $30.

    Just Cause 3 - $24.99.

    Click on link and it's $32.98.

    I don't know what to believe anymore.

    edit: I see. With xbox gold it is the mentioned price. Nice.

      Prices stated are for those with xbox gold.

      Edit: Yep, usually 10% or so extra off for Gold subs.

      I don't think the Xbone (or PS4) versions run very well unfortunately.

      I might wait and see if the Scorpio can fix it, but I'm not buying it at any price if it won't run passably.

        I love the absolute carnage of JC3, really enjoyed it. BUT it does suffer from frame rate issues. They aren't game breaking, but is frustrating at times.

    I just grabbed Metro Redux Bundle for $7.99.

    I couldn't resist grabbing something even though my backlog is up to about 20+ games.

      Good games. Do yourself a favour and read at least the first book before playing the games. Makes it literally 100 times better.

        That's probably what is missing for me. I started playing and felt like I was walking halfway into a story. I've got some leave coming up, might be a nice time to tackle a good book.

          I am on leave for 2 1/2 weeks as of 5pm and was on the lookout for a book to read while sitting on the beach. Perfect timing!

    everyone should play Wolfenstein The New Order if they haven't already. It'll be a nice looking game at 4K, too.

    It runs at 4K on xbox??

      it dosnt, unless he means when scorpio comes out.

    Also, keep in mind a few games will be playable on both Windows and XBox if you own them digitally. eg Forza Horizon 3 and Gears 4

    Batman Arkham Knight is $25ish and rarely goes on sale.

    Annoyed that Diablo 3 went on sale. With seasons coming I bought a physical copy a couple of weeks ago. It never goes on sale digitally...... except after I buy it physically.

    There's a major pricing disparity on some titles - max max = $13aud on the usa store, and on the au store it's $50 on sale LOL

    If you are going to get Sunset Overdrive, get the Deluxe edition.
    It's actually cheaper to buy the Deluxe edition which includes the season pass, compared to buying the season pass itself.
    Something like $23 for Deluxe, $26 for season pass.

    Literally the reason I've never bought the dlc even though I WOULD if they ever had JUST the dlc on sale.

    Definitely recommend checking out Life is strange, that price is a steal.

    Plus overwatch is 60 something (65? can't remember) so worth a mention.
