The months leading up to the Holiday season are always pretty hectic, but for major tech manufacturers like Microsoft, things get incredibly crazy. With the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 currently fighting for the top spot, Microsoft had a lot to do to manage to get an upper hand on Sony's new console.
One way Xbox managed to do this was by pushing for more deals and better bargains, and over the black Friday weekend, Microsoft managed to rake in a huge amount of sales thanks to their discounts around the globe, and this actually helped them to secure the most sold console units for that month.
It isn't going to stop at black Friday either - Microsoft have learned that good deals make sales, and in tune with this they have regularly been putting up discounts on their consoles, and most recently, their first party titles, and some selected third party games as well.
Firstly, digital copies of both Destiny and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare have been put up for just $19.99, half of their standard retail price. Secondly, the above games can also be purchased as a physical copy for $29.99.
Halo The Master Chief Collection has been dropped to $45, and both Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive now have digital copies going for $35. These discounts are not quite like the bargains available for both Destiny and Call of Duty, but still very generous nonetheless.
