Microsoft carves the prices off of many Windows Store items for Halloween

Michael Cottuli

We’re all excited about the announcements that were made today during the Creator’s Update event, but there are a few other things going on for Windows fans. If you’ve been getting ready to celebrate Halloween, Microsoft has put a bunch of Halloween-related movies, music, and games up for sale in the Store. If you go to the Windows Store now, you’ll see a section that reads “It’s baaaack…” where you can check out the full promotion.


The promotion is made up partly of actual sales, and partly of full-price Halloween-related items that Microsoft thinks you might enjoy. The sales are pretty significant, bringing $15 albums to just $0.31 and $20 games down to just $5. You can also pick up (albeit at full price) every season of American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, and Fear The Walking Dead through the promotion as well.

The most significant offerings through the promotion are probably all of the Halloween movies, some of which have been discounted. The Exorcist has been cut down from $8.99 to $6.99, and you can get other classics like The Blair Witch Project, The Cabin in the Woods, The Ring, and Poltergeist for full price. Oxenfree, one of the best indie games in the past couple of years, got its price chopped down to $5. Go ahead and check out the promotion, fill up your cart with some cheap, spooky entertainment and get ready to have an entertaining Halloween!
