See What’s On Offer In Countdown, The ‘Biggest Ever’ Xbox Sale


Starting today, Xbox owners can get deals on a whole range of games, including some of the year’s biggest releases. “Countdown” is said to be the Xbox store’s “biggest sale ever” and allows players the chance to get discounts on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles.

Below are some of the Countdown sale’s notable inclusions. Note that Xbox Live Gold members will save an extra ten percent.
