Microsoft Lays Out The Black Friday Discount Bash
Tremble with your wallets clutched, ye consumers, for the Black Friday sales rush fast approaches. Microsoft is one of the first to detail what exactly will be on sale when its price slashing starts, posting a list to the Microsoft Store.
It looks like the deals will start at midnight on Thanksgiving, letting you cash in on some discounts before you carve any turkey. Curiously the site doesn't mention how much these items will be discounted, just what the soon-to-be-on-sale items are. How will we know if we should log on at midnight on Turkey Day if we don't know how much we're going to save?
The extensive list of games going on sale through Microsoft include Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, Watch Dogs, Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, Kinect Sports Rivals, Dead Rising 2, Thief, Ryse: Son of Rome, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, and many more. It looks like Microsoft will also discount both of the Xbox One holiday bundles, one including Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and the other coming with Assassin's Creed Unity.
While we don't know for sure what the deals on these games will be, it's an interesting approach to lay out what a store will be discounting without any hard numbers. We hope it pays off, but we're not sure that customers will come calling without some certainty. Once the numbers go live, then we'll see for sure.
