Update: The Xbox Live Ultimate Sale is now live.

Original article: Microsoft will be holding a big sale for Xbox One and Xbox 360 games this week. However, many of the important details leaked about the Xbox Live event before they could officially reveal them.

Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb first teased the sale on Saturday on Twitter:
While Microsoft planned to wait until this week to share more information, a test page for the event accidentally spilled the beans. The page (via NeoGAF) mentions that the Ultimate Game Sale will run from Wednesday, February 18th to Tuesday, February 24th.

The full list of Xbox One discounts were also mentioned. They were broken down into three sections: Wicked Weekend Offers, Ultimate Offers, and Ultimate Value Bundles. In many cases, the Xbox Live Gold members steeper discounts for Xbox Live Gold members:

The Ultimate Game Sale's site also includes three pages' worth of Xbox 360 game deals. However, Microsoft didn't accidentally publish those pages so we don't know any details on the 360 discounts yet. I suppose we'll have to wait until February 18th to find out.
