It's because Christmas Day is one of the biggest days of the year for the NBA.

They have an NBA game on sale every Christmas because Christmas is a special day for the NBA season (like Boxing Day is in the Premier League).

It also doesn't hurt as a popular sports title right when a lot of non-regular gamers are plugging in their Christmas consoles for the first time and they see their favorite sport available to be picked up on sale in the marketplace.

The worst day so far? At least every other day actually had a game! This is just microtransactions... that are also on sale constantly anyway.

This was supposed to be Microsofts biggest sale ever. Guess they meant quantity, not quality.

Hahahahahahaha I try to not complain about sales, but could they at least put a game on sale? I'm sure everyone that buys coins for this game will be thrilled, but this may be the worst special ever. At least last year they had Stick of Truth too.

I get tricked every year thinking that this day will be the best sale, only to be quickly reminded that I'm way wrong.

Accurate. Also why put on a lot of sales when most people are actually with family like normal people.

Out of curiosity, why is this? Although the NBA was the only team sport my wife & I ever enjoyed watching I still didn't realize this. I tried searching Google but couldn't come up with much of an answer, just some game schedules.

Nevermind, I figured it out. If anyone else is interested, the answer to my question is here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Basketball_Associatio...

"I never complain but proceed to complain" cliché.

Anyway, as others said, it's a big day for the NBA. Not a surprise. This happens every year.
