Heads up, deal hunters: a new sale on Xbox One and Xbox 360 games is live on the Microsoft Store. You can find the full list here, but we've sorted through the offers and selected some of the best deals on the best games below. Note that some of the deals are only good for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, while others are available to everyone. The sale ends July 16, so don't put off buying any games you've had your eye on.
If you like board games but don't like keeping track of all those cards, dice, and plastic pieces, you're in luck. This week, Ubisoft has dropped prices on a number of its digital versions of Hasbro games. You can pick up Battleship or Risk for $6 / £5, or Monopoly Deal for $2 / £2. The first two are more or less straight renditions of the board games. Monopoly Deal is a fast-paced card game version of Monopoly, which is great for anyone who falls asleep playing the board game.
In anticipation of Mega Man 11 coming this fall, you can scoop up the entire core series for cheap on Xbox One. Mega Man Legacy Collection contains games 1-6 and is on sale for $6 / £5. Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 has games 7-10; it's on sale for $12 / £7.
A handful of other noteworthy games are on sale, including the gorgeous RPG Child of Light for $5 / £4, the recently-released Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet for $42 / £35, and the horror game Zombi for $6 / £5. And if anyone tells you games are a waste of time, you can pick up Rocksmith 2014 Edition - Remastered for $16 / £16 and actually learn how to play guitar. That'll show them.
