We previously mentioned this in our other Black Friday article, but Microsoft has taken the digital approach when it comes to providing certain users with a special deal in time for the big holiday selling weekend.
The company has launched its new Black Friday page, which highlights a number of deals for consumers across all areas, including consoles, games, Xbox Video programs and much more.
Games appear to be the big highlight here, as a number of digital releases are available for dirt cheap through the entire week, running through December 1st. These include big Xbox One releases like Killer Instinct Ultra Edition Season 1, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Forza Motorsport 5: Game of the Year Edition and Angry Birds Star Wars, among others.
Several Xbox 360 games are on sale as well, many of which go for $2.99, including such Electronic Arts favorites as Burnout Paradise, Bulletstorm and others. The full list of deals can be found over on Major Nelson’s website.
That’s not all. Microsoft also has several sales planned on Black Friday itself. Although other digital deals haven’t been revealed yet, the company will host several big Black Friday bargains in its Microsoft stores, including games like Sunset Overdrive and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for $15 a pop, and special deals on consoles and Surface Pro tablets. Those sales will kick off online tomorrow night, starting at 12 AM EDT.
While this will no doubt give Microsoft some big exposure over the holiday weekend, don’t count Sony out. In addition to two previously announced PlayStation 4 bundles featuring the likes of Grand Theft Auto V and LittleBigPlanet 3, the company has announced a week-long sale of cooperative games running through December 2nd, including such games as Rayman Legends, Resogun and Lego The Hobbit. In addition, those who spend $100 or more on these games through December 2nd will be eligible for a $15 credit on their PlayStation account.
Indeed, gamers, it may just be time to break out the wallets.
