The second week of the Xbox Store Countdown sale began Tuesday, December 29, with more deals in Microsoft's "biggest sale ever" for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. There are some solid deals for newer and older titles such as Alien: Isolation, Rainbow Six: Siege, Shovel Knight, Fallout 4, and much more.
The current set of deals that went live today will run through the end of the sale on January 7, 2016. Deals with Gold and Spotlight Sale discounts will be valid through January 4. There are also daily deals that will run until December 31, 2015.
Xbox LIVE Gold members will get the best deals, with discounts up to 85 percent off select games. And really, you'll want a subscription anyways, as it is necessary to play and enjoy a large number of Xbox One titles. Membership costs $60 for 12 months, or $25 for three. However, a year-long membership can frequently be found between $30 and $40 for deal hunters.
