If you’re in the market for some gaming on the cheap, then you might want to check out the Xbox Live Ultimate Game Sale, beginning today and offering brand new discounts every day through July 8. If today’s first crop of titles can serve as any indication, your digital backlog might be getting a whole lot bigger over the course of the next week.
Announced through the Major Nelson Blog, this year’s Ultimate Game Sale offers a collection of 11 games that will be discounted up to 85 percent through the entirety of the promotion. A rotating batch of discounted games will also be offered daily, meaning you’ll have plenty of reason to check back on a regular basis through July 8. While you can take your time deciding on the long-haul sales, anything offered in the daily discounts will be gone in 24 hours. I hope your wallet is ready for a good workout.
“There will be a new set of titles on sale every day between now and July 5, so come back here for the daily post I’ll make…” reads the blog post.
