As the cold weather wanes, all kinds of little critters emerge from their shelters to breathe in the spring air. Look over there, it's Mrs. Chipmunk shaking the cobwebs out of her fur! And up there, in the sky, it's Mr. Bat testing out his wingspan! And behind that rock, it's a horde of Microsoft's Discount Fairies finding some prices to slash! Ah, isn't it beautiful?
The fairies took no prisoners this time around, as Microsoft's Spring Sale features a ton of discounted co-op games for you and your buddies to mull over. If you just so happen to be an Xbox Live Gold member, the deals get a teensy bit better, as the discounts are bumped up to account for your brand loyalty (just don't mention that time you played your cousin's PlayStation in 1996). Check out some highlights for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 below:Xbox One Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (60% off for Gold members/50% otherwise) Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition (50%/40%) Grand Theft Auto V (35%/25%) Halo 5: Guardians (35%/25%) Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 (17%, only discounted for Gold members) Xbox 360 Battleblock Theater (50%/40%) LEGO Marvel's Avengers (20%, only discounted for Gold members) Resident Evil 5 (67%/60%) Sniper Elite 3 (60%/50%)
On top of all that, Microsoft has dropped the price of the Xbox One to just $299 for a limited time. There's never been a better time to convince that Sony fanboy in your life to see how great the co-op is in Bill Gates' Utopia.
The sale is running today through March 28th, so you've got a little less than a week to build up a library of cooperative games hefty enough to keep you indoors all the way through summer. Who needs sunlight, anyway?
