Microsoft Store Discounts, Deals and Coupon Codes

The Xbox Ultimate Game Sale is Happening Now, and These are the Best Deals

Microsoft is once again running its popular Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, taking place from July 19th to July 30th, 2018. Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed the details earlier this week, and predictably, gamers everywhere freaked out.

It's worth noting that Xbox Live Gold members get an extra 10% off select games, and you can pick up a 12-month membership right now for just $39.99 (it typically costs $59.99) by taking advantage of the deal below:

threadID: 11832979

This year, Microsoft is also promoting an "Ultimate Dopplegamer Sweepstakes" to help celebrate the sale. Winners get a free trip to PAX West in Seattle. To enter, simply post a picture of yourself looking like a video game character to Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtags #UltimateDopplegamer and #Sweepstakes. You can read the full terms and conditions here.

Just like in previous years of the Ultimate Game Sale, an insane amount of games will be available at heavily discounted prices throughout the event. With over 700 titles confirmed for the 2018 sale, at up to 65% off (75% off in some cases for Xbox Live Gold members), there's something for everyone.

However, not all deals are created equal. Getting a massive discount on a game may seem exciting, but spending any amount of money on a badly made game you'll never actually play isn't worth it. We want to make sure you get the best value for your money during the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, so we've highlighted the most deal-worthy titles.

That Slickdeals Blue controller looks amazing. Not a bad deal for live, but I usually get my subscription every year on Black Friday,
