Xbox Countdown sale cuts prices by up to 55%

Microsoft have gone live with their Countdown sale, which includes some hefty AAA releases from 2020. At the time of writing they claim to have an eye-popping 787 items discounted, so no matter what you’re looking for to fill up the long months of wintery quarantine, you’re bound to find something here. 

Despite the New Year’s theme, these offers don’t end until January 3rd, so you’ve got plenty of time to make your mind up. Ubisoft’s cockney hacker sandbox Watch Dogs Legion is $30 off, while the Resident Evil 3 remake is cheaper by almost $40. If you’re willing to play something a little older (as in, didn’t just come out), classic titles from the last decade such as Red Dead Redemption 2 are a full 55% off. Now that there’s a pretty good deal, partner. 

There’s hundreds to choose from, but here’s a quick overview of the best bargains we’ve spotted:

We’re waiting till tomorrow to see what’s in the PlayStation Store January sale. Rumour has it that we may see some PS5 exclusives up for grabs, but that remains to be seen. In the meantime you should have a gander at the Jelly Deals Twitter account, where we’re sharing all the newest tech and gaming offers.
