The Game Awards might be over, but the Xbox & Windows Store deals aren’t


If you’re not familiar with The Game Awards, it’s an awards show hosted yearly by journalist Geoff Keighley. This year’s show might be over, but Microsoft’s still got deals on the nominees – and award winners – for both the Xbox One and Windows 10. These deals will be over on Monday, and some of them are definitely worth grabbing if you missed out on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

  • Forza Horizon 3: Standard Edition ($44.99, 25% off) – The latest entry in the Forza Horizon series took home the best sports/racing game award at the show, and it definitely deserves it.

  • Gears of War 4: Standard Edition ($35.99, 40% off) – Gears of War 4 is The Coalition’s first original take on the franchise, and it’s definitely done well at pleasing both plenty of series newcomers and franchise fans alike.
