‘Tis the holiday season, that time of the year when we all need to be extra kind to those we love. I love my Xbox One, and as such, I will be treating my black box to a selection of top class cut-price games, thanks to the Countdown to 2018 sale. It’s on now, and it’s come at the perfect time for us to stock up on new games for ourselves, and then sternly tell family and friends, “I’m broke, sorry, merry Christmas, here’s a pack of biscuits, never mind that expiry date, they just put that there to scare us.”

There are a lot of deals. Like, a lot. Many of them are average. Some are crap. But far too many are so, so good. I scrolled through them, to parse a nifty list of those that really stand out, but my eyes started to bleed from the sheer awesomeness.

Just know that, whatever you’re into, this selection has got you covered. Pick up best-in-class shooters like Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus for 40% less; classy underdog Titanfall 2 Deluxe Edition is yours for 60% less; and you can even try that Star Wars: Battlefront 2 that everyone talks about in angry tones for a beefy 50% discount, for the Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition – and then use the 50% you saved to buy loot crates, LOL.

Sports fans can get hold of my personal 2017 GOTY, FIFA 18, at half price; Madden 18 has a whopping 60% knocked off its standard retail price; and UFC 2 Deluxe Edition is going 67% off too, so you can punch people in the face at a budget price.

There’s actually just too much to mention, so perhaps it’s best you head over to xbox.com, or strafe right on your Xbox dashboard and have a look at the full list on the storefront, and get that credit card ready… you’re going to need it.
