Microsoft offers deep price cuts on Xbox 360 games


Batman: Arkham City is one of the many Xbox 360 disc games on sale at Microsoft's store site for just $9.99.

While the official Microsoft Store website is currently taking pre-orders for the Xbox One and its accessories, it looks like the company is going to try to clear its inventory of many of its Xbox 360 disc games before the launch of the Xbox One this November.

The store's site currently shows 100 Xbox 360 games with some deep price cuts, including many recently released games that are now priced as low as $9.99. Some of those games at that price point include Batman: Arkham City, Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition, Syndicate, Max Payne 3, Dead Island, The Witcher 2 and SoulCalibur V.

Other games with big price cuts include Dead or Alive 5 and Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition for $10.99, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Sleeping Dogs for $12.99. Borderlands 2 for $19.99, Far Cry 3 for $27.99 and Crysis 3 for $31.99; you can even save some money on an official Xbox 360 8 GB USB flash drive from SanDisk. It's on sale on the store site for $9.99 and comes with a free one month subscription for Xbox Live Gold.

Always wanted Fallout NV. Got borderlands 2 when they were selling the digital copy for $5 near the 4th of July. None of the rest particularly interest me.

Some of those prices are still awful after you get past the $9.99 ones. Especially for the old sports games that you can't even get updates on anymore.

That's the only point to this sale, they're just getting rid of old stock for Xbone stuff.

"XBone" LOL, love it! Was this a typo or on purpose? :-)

To be able to play it years after the server's get shut down. Some (not all) become valuable and collectable. Those with poor / slow internet and don't have the option to high speed, or affordable high speed.

So, people in the dark ages basically.

Great games are great games, independent of generation. How many great jrpg's came out this cycle?

(Edit) I'm also an avid fan of DRM free digital, I have an extensive gog.com collection, that is backed up. A lot of games pushed graphics, while game play, originality is more stagnant.

Remove the marketplace region crap, it will **** off a lot of people who can't buy a digital copy of the game.

Yeah. If only it was that easy.
