Big Xbox Sale Includes Huge Discounts for Retro Games

Gaming can be an expensive hobby at times. New consoles and gaming PCs can be pricey, and that’s not even getting into the games themselves. Gamers on a budget thus have an incentive to keep an eye out for sales, and the Xbox digital store has a massive one going on right now.

Xbox players can take advantage of a massive discount on over one hundred games as part of this week’s Publisher Spotlight Sale and Deals with Gold. Deals range from 25% to 85% off on games and expansions, including several Xbox and Xbox 360 games.


The sale included almost 30 backward-compatible Xbox and Xbox 360 games and two backward-compatible expansions. Unfortunately, some of these discounts are only available for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, though players can grab most of them without signing up for a subscription. These include 75% off the original Xbox titles TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. TimeSplitters 2 is considered one of the best shooters on the original Xbox, enjoying an 88% score on Metacritic. 2005’s TimeSplitters: Future Perfect saw similar acclaim, with the Xbox version having a Metascore of 83%.

Other big deals include Skate, Skate 3, Bound by Flame, Faery: Legends of Avalon, Puzzle Fighter HD, Street Fighter 4, and Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition. These are all 80% off, though some of these deals require either an Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Meanwhile, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is 85% off for everyone. Additional 75% deals include the Xbox 360 games Blue Dragon, Fight Night Champion, Midway Arcade Origins, Rayman Legends, Juju, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, and Port Royale 3. Again, some of these discounts are only for Xbox Live Gold members, but others are available to everyone. Port Royale 3 is also free right now for Gold subscribers.

Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed fans with Gold can return to the series roots by grabbing Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed 2 for 70% off. Other 70% off Deals With Gold include MX vs. ATV: Untamed, Outland, and Risen 2: Dark Waters. Gold subscribers can also get Risen and SpongeBob SquarePants: Truth or Square at 30% off. Note that some Deals With Gold are only on the Xbox 360 marketplace, not the modern Xbox store. However, they will still be backward compatible on Xbox One and Series X/S.

These backward-compatible games are just a fraction of the current deals on the Xbox digital store. Players will find a complete list of all 100+ discounted Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S games in a recent blog post from Xbox’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb. The deals end June 20, so Xbox gamers had better act fast if they want to snag some retro titles at reduced prices.
