Original Story:

You know what we could use right now? A good sale, and Microsoft is supplying it with the latest iteration of the Xbox 360 Ultimate Games Sale. For the next seven days, both retail and arcade titles will see price reductions, some already has high as 93% off. There will be both daily sales, which will expire in that 24 hour period, and then certain titles which will be on sale for the entire week. Additionally, we also have the normal Deal of the Week sales, and also an Xbox One price reduction as well.

Xbox One

As part of an effort by Microsoft to find a price point which gamers would find more reasonable for digital games, they are experimenting by cutting the price of a pretty major launch title. This deal starts today and runs until February 24th, but take note that as of right now the price does not seem to have been reduced on the Xbox One marketplace. There will also be a special deal on add-ons starting on February 25th.
