Gamers and tech enthusiasts have had their fair share of sales this summer from Amazon Prime Day to the Steam Summer Sale to the Google Store Summer Sale. If your bank account is still in decent shape, here is one more sale to entice you. Microsoft is offering deals on over 700 Xbox One and PC games, consoles, and subscriptions in its Ultimate Game Sale.
The biggest draws of the Microsoft Ultimate Game Sale are the discounts on Xbox One games. Gamers can get up to 65% off while Xbox Live Gold members also save an additional 10% off the already discounted prices.
There are many games on sale, but here are some of the best deals:

There are also a number of discounts on Windows 10 games. Some of the games on sale support Xbox Play Anywhere. This means that gamers will be able to play and save their game on both their Xbox One and on Windows 10. Here are some of the best PC game deals:

Microsoft has not skimped out on the hardware deals either. If you do not own an Xbox One, you can get a free $30 Xbox gift card if you purchase the Xbox One X or a free pig controller if you buy the Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Limited Edition console bundle. Microsoft is offering $25 off the Linksys WRT32XB router and a three-month Xbox Game Pass with the purchase.
