Imagine, if you will, a tall, proud, beautiful oak tree. The tree is Microsoft. The leaves, they are an assortment of Xbox One and Xbox 360 games. And now it’s that time of the year when the leaves start to float to the ground, twirling gently in the breeze. It’s autumn, see. And that means it’s time for the Xbox Autumn Sale. And the leaves are games, falling. Except that it’s the prices that fall, really, not the games themselves. Right, my metaphor is crap.
Here’s the point: there’s a massive sale on Xbox One and Xbox 360 games on the Xbox marketplace, and it’s the kind of list that could melt an unsuspecting credit card. Just about every genre is catered for, and it’s not just throw-away budget bin nonsense either – top class titles like Call of Duty: WW2, Assassin’s Creed Origins, and Destiny 2 are up there along with, well, just a big pile of games, okay, I’m not going to list them all, my brain has already headed off on Easter weekend and I’m dreaming of chocolate eggs the size of rugby balls.
