Free money! Well, kinda. For avid Xbox fans who buy a lot of digital games and content, here’s an opportunity to snag some bonus cash as both Amazon and Best Buy are offering 10% off of Xbox gift cards in an array of denominations, including a $50 card for $45 and a $100 card for $90.
A handful of Microsoft’s top first-party Xbox games are on sale right now, and you can get Forza Horizon 4, Sea of Thieves, or Halo: The Master Chief Collection for just $20 a pop at Best Buy or Amazon. There’s also Ori and the Will of the Wisps for $13, while Microsoft Flight Simulator for PC—currently not playable on Xbox, but it’s coming—is $50.
If you game a lot on Xbox and/or PC, then you need Game Pass Ultimate in your life. It pairs the usual benefits of Xbox Live Gold (online play, free games to keep) with the incredibly valuable Game Pass subscription service, which serves up well over 100 games to download and play across Xbox One and PC. And that includes all of Microsoft’s new first-party games, day one.
It’s usually $15 a month, but right now Best Buy and Amazon alike have a three-month digital code for just $36. Whether you’re adding to your existing subscription or starting a new, this is a solid deal on an invaluable service.
Minecraft (Digital Code) | $15
Minecraft is one of the biggest games on the planet, but if you’ve somehow managed to avoid it for the last decade-plus, now’s your chance to save $5 on the Xbox version at Best Buy. This digital code grants you access to the open-ended sandbox, which enables potentially endless fun in creative and survival modes, not to mention the ability to connect to multiplayer servers full of competitive experiences, cooperative dabbling, and more.
Immortals Fenyx Rising | $30
If you’ve already played through Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or just prefer Greek mythology, give Immortals Fenyx Rising a spin. This open-world game hails from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey team and explores the source material with a lighthearted tone and clear influence from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It just released in December and is already half off on Xbox One/Series X/S.
No Man’s Sky | $20
No Man’s Sky had one of the harshest launches of any game in recent memory, releasing amidst immense hype and then immediately incurring the wrath of the gaming community (sigh) for what was seen as false promises.
But here’s the thing: Hello Games kept working, and for the last few years the indie studio has gradually met and surpassed expectations to deliver the brilliant space exploration experience that so many wanted from the game. And if you haven’t played it, right now you can snag the Xbox One version for a mere $20 from Walmart and see what all of the (recent) fuss is about.
Borderlands 3 | $10
The long-awaited shoot-and-loot sequel Borderlands 3 might not have reinvented the wheel for Gearbox’s popular series, but it’s another fun and raucous shooter that’s best enjoyed with pals. We’re surprised to see it selling for just $10 at Best Buy right now for the standard version. That’s a hell of a deal, so if you’ve had even a scrap of fun with this series in the past, don’t pass up this bargain. It’s also enhanced on Xbox Series X or S if you’ve got ‘em.
Hitman 3 | $47
The first big game release of 2021 is a hit… and it’s about hits, no less. Hitman 3 is trilogy-capping assassination sandbox, and it has scored rave reviews from critics for pairing a stronger narrative focus with the consistently entertaining contract-killing antics of Agent 47. Save nearly $13 from Amazon right now.
NBA 2K21 (Series X/S) | $44
2K Sports’ annual hoops franchise gets the new-gen treatment in NBA 2K21 for Xbox Series X and Series S, which features an array of visual and performance enhancements over the earlier Xbox One release. It’s already marked down $26 from list at Amazon.
Xbox Core Controller | $50
If you need another controller for your Xbox Series X/S or Xbox One and don’t mind waiting a while, Amazon is currently taking $10 off the price of the current version of the Xbox wireless gamepad in Robot White. The downside, however, is that it’s listed to ship in 1-2 months. We suspect that the wait won’t be quite that long, but you may need some patience to take advantage of these savings.
The latest entry in Ubisoft’s open-world historical adventure series takes its cues from Nordic history, as you lead the Vikings into England in search of conquest. This version works on both Xbox One and the new Xbox Series X/S consoles, too, so you don’t have to worry about buying the game again or paying for an upgrade if you plan on snagging a new console soon. It’s $25 off.
Just Dance 2021 | $30
Get up and get moving in Just Dance 2021, the newest entry in Ubisoft’s annual dance series. Using a smartphone as your motion controller, you’ll match the on-screen moves shown in vivid scenes paired with hit songs like Lizzo’s “Juice” and The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights.” It’s $20 off the list price at Amazon right now.
WD Black 5TB P10 Game Drive | $120
Running out of room for all of your downloaded and installed Xbox One games? Give yourself a bunch of breathing room with this WD Black P10 Game Drive, which has a sizable 5TB of space.
It plugs into your console via USB and can potentially hold a hundred of more games, depending on size. Right now, it’s $30 off the list price.
Whether it’s to strategize with allies or prod your fallen foes, it’s always ideal to have a headset handy for online multiplayer antics. If yours is faltering or you don’t have one right now, then consider Turtle Beach’s Ear Force Recon 50X. You can spend a lot more on a headset, certainly, but this $25 option has 40mm drivers, a clear and adjustable mic, and works with all kinds of devices. It’s $5 off right now and has a strong 4.3-star rating from Amazon customers.
