12 Days of Deals, Day 3: 50 Percent Off Xbox One Games

On the third day of 12 Days of Deals, my true love gave to me … 50 percent off select Xbox One games! This is one of the better deals this year.

You can find the complete list on the Microsoft Store website. But here’s a rundown of the best deals today.

ReCore for Xbox One Now $19.99, was $39.99

Recore for Xbox One and Windows 10 Download Code Starting at $19.99, was $39.99

    Warning, folks: I just gave up on Recore, which I bought for $20. It's fun, but the loading times are excruciating, nd they happen all the time. Even with a book on hand to reading during the loading, I couldn't take it anymore.

      In reply to Michael Rivers: Playing recore as I write this and you are correct about the long loading times but they are bearable unless I have Zen like patience. I'd try reinstalling it to see if it gets better. Also, how did you buy it, digitally or physical? I bought mine digitally.

    Disc only?  I'd love to grab Battlefield 1 but it shows Out of Stock.

    In reply to Michael Rivers:

    Ya, Even on my PC (corei7 with 2 SSDs in Raid 0... ~1Gb/s throughput) the loading times are in the 15-20 sec range.  I imagine on console or HDD that would be getting close to a full minute or more of waiting.

    Still a fun game though!  And if you do have the drive throughput the wait is longer than other games... but not unbearable.

    And today the US gets $250 off a Surface 4 and here in Australia we just get 20% of a pair of headphones.

    Perhaps one day, Microsoft will wake up that there are customers out there in the rest of the world.
