You know what’s better than a new game? A cheap game. Because yes, not everyone has upwards of R800 or more to throw down on a new game, money which could be better spent on food or more alcohol to help me actually drown the memory of the time that I spent that much cash on a game that I didn’t actually like. F***ing Brink. Never again, never again dammit. Moving on, Xbox is bringing back their Ultimate Sale from tomorrow, according to a leak. Here’s what you can find, for cheap cheap.
According to a NeoGAF thread, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will see a 25% discount for a game that only has 25% of its multiplayer actually working, while games such as Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor, Alien: Isolation, Destiny and The Crew will receive up to a 60% slash in prices. Gold subscribers will get even bigger discounts, on various games. Here’s a full list of what’s on offer, click to embiggen:
Final prices have yet to be confirmed, but it’s worth taking a peek at your Xbox Live store to get an idea of how much you’ll be saving on anything that does catch your eye here. I’d check to see if any of the specials are up, but I’m stuck downloading yet another 2GB update right now. There’ll also be some Xbox 360 games getting a deal or two. Pretty much everything from Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham to to Grand Theft Auto V will be that much cheaper. Provided you have any funds left over from Valentine’s Day, and what I presume to be the expensive counselling that was needed in order to help forget that you took your date to go see 50 Shades Of Grey.
