Sure, Xbox might not have the most exclusives or the highest-selling hardware, but one thing they do right is discounts.
The 2017 Xbox Countdown Sale is now live, and you can save on pretty much every game right now, with up to 650 games or DLC on the list.
The sale runs until December 31st, and not only are there some really generous discounts on games, but the first month of Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold are also on sale for just $1, which is pretty convenient for players who want the extra 10 percent discount that Xbox Live Gold members receive during the Countdown Sale.
Daily Deals will also pop up throughout the Countdown Sale, which offers an even bigger discount on titles not on the list. The first daily deal, Halo Wars 2, is 50 percent off (60 percent for Gold members).
The Countdown Sale is a great opportunity to do some last minute holiday shopping. Back in November, Xbox added a game gifting feature to its online store, allowing players to buy games for their friends.
