Xbox One: Games on Sale, Big Plans for E3

March 28, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


If you’ve been thinking about picking up some Xbox One games, now’s your chance to get them at a discount. The Microsoft Store currently has eleven Xbox One games on sale.

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts – $25
  • Battlefield 4 – $30
  • Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag – $30
  • Lego Marvels Superheroes – $30
  • Zumba Fitness – $30
  • Just Dance 2014 – $30
  • NBA 2K14 – $40
  • FIFA 2014 – $40
  • Angry Birds: Star Wars – $30
  • Killer Instinct Pin Ultimate Edition – $50
  • Thief – $50

Now, if those aren’t enough games to get you interested (although some of those discounts are pretty good), Microsoft’s Phil Spencer recently revealed to GameSpot that E3 is going to be dominated by “huge franchises” and many AAA titles, from Microsoft as well as Sony, Nintendo, EA, and Activision.

That sounds great, especially since we’ve had some years where the E3 shows don’t seem to have enough games. Maybe we’ll even see some fantastic new IPs announced.

Xbox Live 12-Month Gold Cards: $20 Off

February 21, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


If you’re interested in Xbox Live Gold, you’re in luck. Amazon and Best Buy both currently have 12-month subscription cards on sale for only $40, which is $20 off the usual price.

This is great for both players who don’t have an Xbox Live Gold subscription and those who do, as you can stack subscriptions on top of one another. Xbox Live Gold gives you access to online features, online multiplayer, and two free games each month, among other benefits.

Deals like this are always nice, especially if you plan to purchase or renew a subscription anyway—why wait, when you can get it at a reduced price? Check it out at either one of the retailers to take advantage of the sale.

Aaron Greenberg Denies Rumors Xbox Being Sold to Amazon

February 16, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


We’ve heard some strange rumors lately, including a theory that Microsoft plans to sell its entire Xbox division to Amazon. Amazon recently bought Double Helix Games, so the thought of them entering the gaming industry makes sense, but this would still be an unexpected move.

Well, when asked by a Twitter user, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg addressed the claims, describing them as “ridiculous” and expressing his disbelief that people would give the rumor credence.

You would think that would put an end to it, but of course, some people just think he’s lying. We’ll keep you updated if anything more comes of this rumor.

Target buy two get one free sale expanded

November 11, 2013 by Staff - Leave a comment


Yesterday we reported that Target would be doing a “buy two get one free” deal for select Xbox One games. We were wrong. It also applies to other gaming systems (including the Playstation 4, if for some reason you’re not taking advantage of the Amazon PS4 game sale) but is unfortunately still extremely limited in terms of which games are actually available under the promo.

The number of Xbox One games you can choose from using this deal still stands at three (Battlefield 4, Fighter Within and Call of Duty: Ghosts) and the PS4 selection is even worse – let’s just say we hope you like basketball

There are loads of current-generation Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 games available with the offer though (including titles like GTA V) so who knows, maybe you can still make use of it and grab at least one next-generation title on the cheap. Otherwise if you are a soon-to-be new PS4 owner, then just hit up the Amazon sale!
