XBL Sale Roundup: January 14th, 2014

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
The special sales appear to be taking another sabbatical, leaving bargain hunters to satisfy themselves with the Deal of the Week. This week takes on a Nordic Games theme. You will likely recognise the majority of these properties as those acquired from other publishers who found themselves in financial difficulty; there are a lot of ex-THQ properties and an appearance of a title acquired from the bankrupt JoWood Entertainment. Only one of the following items was originally published by Nordic Games. Those marked with ** contain unobtainable or discontinued achievements.
