Have an XB1, where to get digital deals?

Recommended Posts

So, I took the plunge on an XB1, and though I'm totally a physical media guy... in this case, I decided to do digital.  Mostly because it's the end of the system's lifespan, and the number of games I want for the thing is less than six.

 

How often does the MS online store have sales, and where can I keep tabs on which games are on sale?

Beside things like the Summer, Holiday, etc sales, most of the sales start on Tuesday and last a week.  There is always a sale running it seems.  I would recommend going to True Achievements and checking the site out.  They have a tracker for games so alert you when they go on sale and they post the sales pretty much as soon as they go up.  Much easier than trying to browse the MS store.

If you plan on using it enough to justify the cost of the subscription, Game Pass is a unreal deal with a bunch of awesome games that they add to every week.

You can also add games on the Microsoft Store to your wishlist, and when one of them go on sale you'll get a notfication (Bell icon) in the Guide menu.

^^ all that stuff 

 

Also follow CheapAssGamer for deals, as well as Wario64 on Twitter. Something is always on sale. 

 

I subscribe to Xbox Live Gold just for the Games With Gold feature, even though I almost never play online. They give away 4 games every month. The Xbone games are tied to your keeping a subscription but the XB360 games are yours forever. 

 

Whether GamePass or Gold makes more sense to you depends on how much you play. I was able to convert Gold months into GamePass for next to nothing, but I think that deal is over now. It's a good price no matter what though, because the catalog is deep. 

 

Check out the lineup. https://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-game-pass/games
