Microsoft’s Ultimate Game Sale is going on now, and it’s the biggest Xbox One game sale we’ve seen all year. It offers up to 65% off digital Xbox games, with an added 10% off select games for Xbox Live Gold members. The sale runs through July 30, so don’t wait too long to make your purchases.
We’ve already gone over some of the sale’s highlights overall, but here we thought we’d put some limits on it. If you don’t have a mountain of cash to spend, you’re probably wondering what you can get without having to take out a high-interest bank loan. Below are some of the best games available in the sale for under $10. Note that these are the prices for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. If you’re not a Gold member, the price you see could be a bit higher. Let’s look at some deals.
You don’t have to spend much to get a decent shooter during this sale. The underrated gravity-defying Titanfall 2 is on sale for $6 / £5.25. You can get the Metro: Redux Bundle, which contains both Metro: 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux, for $7.50 / £6. And even if it’s not the best game in the series, Mass Effect: Andromeda may be worth checking out for $10 / £6.
Two very different takes on the Dark Knight are available for under $10. If you’re looking for some stealth action, you can grab Batman: Return to Arkham for $10 / £20. More story-minded DC fans might prefer Batman: The Telltale Series for $10 / £10.
You can play through Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series for $10 / £9.60 as you wonder what the third movie will be like without James Gunn at the helm. Retro game fans can save half off Arcade Game Series 3-in-1 Pack, bringing it down to $4 / £3.20. It comes with Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig-Dug–all highly regarded games from the 1980s.
If you don’t have Xbox Live Gold but want these sweet sub-$10 prices, consider subscribing now. A one-year membership is currently on sale for $40 / £26.50. Or perhaps you’d rather not pay for games individually at all. In that case, try a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass, on sale for $10 / £8. It lets you download and play a selection of over a hundred games on your Xbox One, including first-party games the same day they’re released.
