Each Monday, Microsoft refreshes its weekly sale on digital Xbox One and 360 games on Xbox Live. This week’s sale is up on the site, so let’s take a look at some of the best games you can get for low prices. Note that some of the discounts are reserved for Xbox Live Gold members, while others are available to everyone.
There aren’t a lot of big games on sale this week, but if you don’t mind picking up racing games that aren’t the latest in the series, you can save some serious cash. Need for Speed and Need for Speed Rivals are on sale for $5 each. A bundle containing Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Motorsport 6 is down to just $32–significantly less than if you wanted to pick up racers of a more recent vintage.
All episodes of the mystery adventure game The Council are on sale, but if you’re in for a penny, why not go for the whole pound and grab the complete season for $20? And for those whose interests span both football and fantasy (the Tolkien kind), Blood Bowl 2 will be right up your alley; it’s on sale for $5.
But not every game needs to last dozens of hours. It’s always nice to have a few smaller games you can play for 10 minutes here and 15 minutes there. A number of those are on sale right now, including Clustertruck for $7.50, Coffin Dodgers for $4.80, and the king of them all, Peggle 2, which is on sale for just $2.40. Do yourself a favor and pick that one up if you don’t have it.
