Xbox’s “Countdown” sale has officially begun

Announced more than a week ago, Xbox’s annual holiday sale has at last started. 

The Xbox “Countdown” sale will feature daily and weekly sales on the Xbox digital marketplace. Discounts will be applied to games, TV shows, movies. Deals will cycle now through January 7, so be sure to check back frequently over the next few weeks.

Prices will vary based on region, so sign in to ensure you’re seeing the proper discounts. Additionally, if a title doesn’t appear to have a sale price next to it, come back later. Because the Xbox Marketplace is still adjusting prices, you may not see all discounts taking effect for a few more hours. That being said, here’s everything available according to Major Nelson’s official Xbox site:
