Gaming may be a costly pastime at times. New consoles and gaming PCs may be expensive, and that doesn’t even include the games. Gamers on a budget have a reason to keep an eye out for deals, and the Xbox digital shop now has a large one going on.
As part of this week’s Publisher Spotlight Sale and Deals with Gold, Xbox fans can get a big discount on over a hundred titles. Deals vary from 25% to 85% off games and expansions, including various Xbox and Xbox 360 titles. The deal contained around 30 backward-compatible Xbox and Xbox 360 titles, as well as two backward-compatible expansions. Unfortunately, some of these offers are only accessible to Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate users, while the majority of them may be obtained without signing up for a subscription. These include a 75% discount on the original Xbox games TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. TimeSplitters 2 is regarded as one of the finest shooters on the original Xbox, with an 88 percent Metacritic rating. TimeSplitters: Future Perfect received comparable praise in 2005, with the Xbox version receiving an 83 percent Metascore.
Other notable releases include Skate, Skate 3, Bound by Flame, Faery: Legends of Avalon, Puzzle Fighter HD, Street Fighter 4, and Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition. These are all 80 percent discounted, however, some of them need an Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate membership. Meanwhile, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is an 85 percent discount for everyone. Other Xbox 360 titles on sale for 75% off include Blue Dragon, Fight Night Champion, Midway Arcade Origins, Rayman Legends, Juju, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, and Port Royale 3. Again, some of these savings are exclusively accessible to Xbox Live Gold users, while others are open to everyone. Port Royale 3 is also now available for free to Gold members.
Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed aficionados with Gold may return to the series’ beginnings by purchasing Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed 2 for 70% off. Other 70 percent off Deals With Gold include MX vs. ATV: Untamed, Outland, and Risen 2: Dark Waters. Risen and SpongeBob SquarePants: Truth or Square are both available at a 30% discount for Gold members. It should be noted that certain Deals With Gold are only available on the Xbox 360 marketplace, not the contemporary Xbox shop. They will, however, be backward compatible on Xbox One and Series X/S.

These backward-compatible titles represent just a small portion of the Xbox digital store’s current offerings. A comprehensive list of all 100+ discounted Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S titles can be found in a recent blog post from Xbox’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb. The sales conclude on June 20, so Xbox fans should move quickly if they want to get their hands on any discounted classic games.
