The details of the latest Deals With Gold promotion have been announced, and, combined with a separate sale on a number of Capcom games, make for some pretty good discounts--particularly if you still have an Xbox 360.
The Xbox One Deals With Gold discounts (which require an Xbox Live Gold membership) are relatively limited this week. Call of Duty: Ghosts Gold Edition is $40 after a 33-percent discount, and Angry Birds: Star Wars, despite a 50-percent price drop, is still wildly overpriced on consoles at $25. Meanwhile, a handful of first-party games--Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Kinect Sports Rivals--are all getting a permanent price cut to $50 each. This new price will go into effect on August 6 on the Xbox Games Store and at retail.
As if often the case, it's on Xbox 360 that you'll find the best deals this week if you have Xbox Live Gold. Ghosts is discounted 50 percent, bringing it down to $30. Rock Band 3--one of the better music games out there, provided you have the necessary hardware--is only $10, and Terraria is just $5.
Even if you don't have Xbox Live Gold, you can still take advantage of Capcom's Xbox 360 sale. The highlights include Dead Rising 2 for $7.50; Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD, Resident Evil 4 HD, and Resident Evil 5 for $6.60 each; and Devil May Cry HD Collection for $10.
