Microsoft announced a number of Black Friday sales and deals, and they’re not waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to make good on them. Beginning today, The Windows Store is offering up over 1,000 movie rentals, songs, apps and games, all for only 10 cents. Today, you can rent Jurassic World for just 10 cents, or check out Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” for the same price, for over 90% savings on those titles, along with a number of other songs, games and movies.
You can check out the Windows Blog post for all of today’s deals, and more information. The Windows Store will be featuring new deals for each of the next ten days, and you can check back often for some great deals.
Xbox, of course, is in on the holiday deals craze, and beginning Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 26th through Monday November 30th, you can pick up a select Xbox One bundle for only $299, the lowest price ever on an Xbox One. Other bundles, including a Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians bundle and a Fallout 4 bundle will be offered at $50 off, still a great deal if you want the latest games to go with your new Xbox One. A post over on Xbox Wire has all the details.
Xbox is featuring a number of new games at significant savings, too, available through Xbox Live Gold, and to take advantage of them, from now until November 30th you can upgrade to Gold for only $1 for the first month, and take advantage of 40 to 60% savings on lots of games.
