Microsoft's Ultimate Game Sale will save you some serious cash on Xbox games and accessories

Tech 28-7-2021 Mashable 78

TL;DR: You can save up to 90% on select Xbox games, up to 80% on select PC titles, and up to 30% on Xbox accessories during the Microsoft Store's Ultimate Game Sale, which runs through Aug. 5.


It's like Microsoft snuck a peek at the Playstation Store's Summer Sale and said, "Hold my beer."

The former just kicked off an Ultimate Game Sale that covers hundreds of Xbox titles in addition to select PC games and a handful of Xbox accessories, with savings of up to 90% up for grabs in the Microsoft Store and Xbox.com now through Aug. 5. (Not to pit two queens against each other, but the Playstation Store's rival sale only features PS4 and PS5 games — there are no accessory deals to be found — and its discounts top off at 75%.)

Whatever you do, don't sleep on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War or Hitman 3 (one of our favorite video games of 2021 so far) — the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S versions of both games are half off as part of the sale; the Game of the Year Edition of 2015's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is also pretty hard to resist at only $10. And for anyone brave enough to venture back into the patched-up world of Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 will currently run you $48 (a 20% savings).

If you need some new gear for your console, you can shave $10 off the price of a new Xbox Wireless Controller or upgrade to a pro-grade Razer model for $40 cheaper than usual. Xbox-licensed headsets, meanwhile, start at just $25 (normally $40) for some comfy HyperX earphones featuring 40mm drivers with bass that's optimized for console gaming.

For a complete list of the sale's absolute best deals, just keep on scrolling — we've rounded them all up below.
