Everyone loves to save a little bit of money here and there. After all, it will add up eventually over the course of time. Xbox gamers who would like to enjoy a fair amount of value with their console over in Europe will rejoice that there is a huge Spotlight Sale going on this week. This Spotlight Sale certainly does seem to live up to its expectations -- by offering fantastic discounts on the likes of recently launched titles such as NBA 2K17, in addition to a myriad of Resident Evil titles. There is also the normal Deals with Gold for Xbox Live Gold subscribers as well, and those living in Europe are able to carve up a nice, big smile compared to the rest of the world thanks to the Xbox team offering an Xbox Europe Special Sale.
Just what will this particular Xbox Europe Special Sale entail? Well, we do know that gamers will be treated to a range of triple A titles that would most probably have been played by many to date. This might mean making a return to an old classic for old times’ sake, or you might even be one of the exceptional few who have not given these classic hit titles a go, making this the best time to do so now.
The number of Xbox One games available in the Xbox Europe Special Sale would include Call of Duty Black Ops III Gold Edition with a 60% discount, half price for GTA V, BioShock: The Collection, Titanfall 2, Mafia III, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Watch Dogs 2 will be cheaper by 45%, while For Honor: Deluxe Edition is gunning for new gamers to jump aboard its bandwagon with a 30% discount. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, will be priced at 33% of its original value, providing plenty of bang for your hard earned buck.
As for the selection of Xbox 360 backward compatible games, the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Red Dead Redemption, GTA IV, BioShock, Borderlands and Skate 3 will shave off half of its original sticker price tag, while XCOM: Enemy Within is certainly worth every penny -- especially when you consider how it is now priced at 25% of its original price.
Do take note that the pricing on offer might change from one region to another, so it is always best to check out the current store listings in order to obtain the complete pricing details. This is certainly an exclusive sale that all Xbox One owners over in Europe should be looking into, if they would like to expand their library with an oldie but goodie which they have not played before.
We can only sit all the way here from across the pond and throw an envious glance at our European counterparts’ direction. When will such good deals arrive in the US, or in other territories for that matter? Is there any way to make a petition with Microsoft to remedy the situation? Only time will be able to tell.
