While the big Microsoft Xbox One store sale is scheduled to take place on December 22nd which is still two more days to go, the company announced the Deals with Gold games for the month along with spotlight sales.
The week’s game list is decent with something for everyone. According to the Major Nelson blog announcement, the deals with gold games include Metro Redux, Never Alone Arctic Collection and Blood Bowl. The collection is pretty comprehensive as hardcore gamers who love to enjoy an action packed single player campaign can go with Metro Redux without questions. The game features gorgeous graphics, an addictive gameplay mechanism and will easily keep you glued to it for hours. It should look the best on the newest Xbox One console.
Never Alone Arctic Collection started off as a simple indie title that went on to become as popular as any AAA game with its gorgeous soundtrack and presentation. Blood bowl is a turn based NFL title that offers something new and if you love games like Civilization V, this is the one to go for. The spotlight sale on Microsoft’s Xbox One store is just the beginning as they have refrained from bringing in the big titles before the Dec 22 sale.
Zombie games never cease to impress and in the spotlight sale, you can get Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 for flat 50% discount. An equally notable offer is on Dead or Alive 5 character sets, story mode editions. The fighting game and its additional content can be purchased with 30% discount saving you some money and allowing you to add a good collection of action titles to your Xbox One games list.
Other discounts are on Destiny the Taken King, MX vs ATV Supercross Encore, The Escapists DLC bundle and other games. Xbox 360 games have their fair share of deals as part of Microsoft’s spotlight sale. Street Fighter X Tekken is easily the best pick of the lot as it has a 80% discount. There’s Darksiders II with the same discounted price along with it’s additional content packs including Argul’s Tomb, Death Rides Pack and the Season Pass. Lost Planet 3, is available with a 75% discount, Remember Me is 70% discounted and they are part of the Games on Demand program.
