Microsoft announced a new round of discounts for Xbox One and Xbox 360 games this morning. The discounts are accompanied by permanent price cuts for some early Xbox One releases.

Starting August 6th, the following four Xbox One games will have their prices lowered to $49.99. The new prices will be in effect in both US and Canada through retailers and Xbox Live:
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Forza Motorsport 5
  • Kinect Sports Rivals
  • Ryse
Every game on that list other than Sports Rivals was a launch title for Xbox One. They might have been popular choices in November but they're going to face much stiffer competition this fall thanks to a new round of holiday releases. Microsoft figures that the price cut will help their first-party titles from being completely forgotten.

Meanwhile, Capcom is holding a sale on many of their games and DLC packs over on Xbox 360. The following content will be on sale through August 11th (via Major Nelson):
  • Asuraís Wrath - 75% off

One important thing to note about the Capcom discounts is that they don't have an Xbox Live Gold requirement. Anyone with a free Xbox Live membership can take advantage of sale.

This week Microsoft is also offering a range of "Deals with Gold" from different publishers. Here's the breakdown of discounts for each console:

Xbox One
  • Angry Birds: Star Wars - 50% off
  • Call of Duty Ghosts: Gold Edition* - 33% off
  • Call of Duty Ghosts: Digital Hardened Edition* - 30% off
- Xbox 360 -
  • Call of Duty Ghosts - 50% off
  • Terraria - 67% off
  • Rock Band 3 - 50% off
  • The Doors Greatest Hits: Rock Band Edition - 50% off
  • Bon Jovi Greatest Hits: Rock Band Edition - 50% off
  • American Idiot Album - 50% off
Unlike the Capcom sale, the Deals with Gold do require you to have a premium Xbox Live membership. The only exceptions to this are the Gold and Hardened Editions of Call of Duty Ghosts for Xbox One.
