The Microsoft Store’s annual Spring Sale kicks off today, offering deals on Xbox and PC games, consoles, gaming PCs, and more.

“Now is the perfect opportunity to score great deals on all things Xbox including the best deal of the year on Xbox Game Pass,” Microsoft’s Will Tuttle announced. “Take advantage of Spring deals on Xbox and PC games, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold memberships, Xbox consoles, gaming PCs, gaming accessories, movies, apps and more. But you will have to hurry, Spring Sale ends April 22.”

You don’t have to hurry that much: April 22 is 10 days away. But some items are only on sale for specific time frames. And if you’re in the market for any of this stuff, you should at least take the time to check out the sale.

A few highlights:

Select Xbox game titles, including The Division 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Red Dead Redemption 2, FIFA 19, NBA 2K19, and many more are available for up to 65 percent off. There are even 95 Xbox One games priced at $10 or less. (And Xbox Live Gold members save a further 10 percent on each game purchase.)

3 months of Xbox Game Pass for just $1. Anyone who hasn’t yet subscribed to Xbox Game Pass has to at least try it now, in a deal that Microsoft calls the “best deal of the year.”

    For anyone that collects Microsoft Rewards - there's a punch card right now for buying or renting any 3 movies and you get 2500 points. This sale could be a good opportunity for that.

    Soul Calibur 6 is one of the heavily discounted titles! At that price I'm into it...
