PSA: Xbox Countdown Sale kicks off with Halo 5, King's Quest, Mad Max, and more

Steam and PlayStation have had their digital holiday sales up and running and now Xbox is here to join them.


Those looking to shop for themselves this Christmas holiday have a number of digital fronts available to them. The Steam Winter Sale begins today, while the PlayStation Holiday Sale has been up and running for a couple of weeks. Now it's Xbox's turn, as Microsoft has kicked off the first week of holiday sales for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

These are among the deals that users can expect to find from today through the 28th, with Xbox Live Gold members getting an additional discount to the one shown below:

These are just a few of the deals available this week, with 24-hour deals also available across both platforms. One of today's deals is Need for Speed for $29.99, an interesting offer given that it just released in early November. The whole sale can be found on Xbox Live, the Xbox Store, and the full list is available from Major Nelson.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
