While a lot of the usual suspects received discounts, I'm glad that Microsoft threw in a few underappreciated Xbox 360 games like Mirror's Edge, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Bulletstorm. They didn't get the sales that some of the other games on this list did but are worth checking out before you retire your Xbox 360.

While this is a huge amount of discounts, it's not the full list. Microsoft plans to put more Xbox One and Xbox 360 games on sale later in the week. Presumably they'll go live on Black Friday itself and then continue through the weekend.

You'll need to have Xbox Live Gold membership to take advantage of these deals. If you don't have a Gold membership, you can buy it for cheap at various retailers starting November 27th. For example, Walmart and Target are offering 3-month memberships for 50% off while GameStop is taking $10 off the 12-month subscription. You can find the full list of these Gold membership deals here.

Retailers are also offering their own deals on consoles, controllers and games. Microsoft has compiled them all at their own Black Friday site.
