Gaming is fun, but it can also be a very expensive hobby in the long run, especially if you are the type of gamer who simply must have every single title that has ever been released on a particular console or platform -- without resorting to software piracy, of course. While there are programs such as Xbox Games with Gold or PlayStation Plus that allows you to obtain free games each month, these rely on the luck of the draw. For folks who would prefer to catch up on games that have scored top notch ratings in the past without breaking the bank, why not check out the Xbox spring sale? With more than 400 titles available at a discount, it is time for you to rediscover the magic of gaming while enjoying at least 50 percent off -- with Xbox Live Gold members being privileged enough to save even more with each purchase.
The Xbox spring sale is an annual affair, and the revelry is joined by titles on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. Those who are interested in the Xbox spring sale will have until April 17 to take advantage of it, so fret not if you miss out on this during the Easter revelry. There is always a window of opportunity between Monday and Tuesday next week to catch up on whatever you might have missed over the weekend.
The full list of discounted games offered by the Xbox spring sale can be seen here, but take note that only the discounted percentage is shown without shedding light on the entire dollar retail price. Some of the deals are limited to just Xbox Live Gold members, and in select discounted games, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to save even more with an additional special discount on top of it.
Certain gaming titles have also managed to be part of the Games With Gold lineup (Sleeping Dogs and Thief are two particularly ‘notorious’ titles that made repeated appearances in such a setup), with certain Electronic Arts titles being accessible via the EA Access library of games.
Fancy getting some Fallout 4 action for a mere $19.80 if you are an Xbox Live Gold member? The same price applies to Just Cause 3 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection that will bring both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in a bundle. Quantum Break is going for $24 a pop, while Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will retail for $18.
The Xbox 360 is creaking along on its bones now, but this does not mean that there are no more games being developed for it. If anything, it has a venerable library that will continue to keep gamers entertained wherever they are. Here is your opportunity to grab Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for $20, with Red Dead Redemption retailing for $15. Do take note that the forty Xbox 360 titles which are on sale can also be played on the Xbox One thanks to backward compatibility.
