Today’s Dealmaster is focused specifically on video game deals, as both Microsoft and Sony are in the midst of sweeping “spring sales” for their respective gaming platforms. In general, most of the price cuts aren’t as steep as you’ll see around Black Friday and the holiday season, but many of the games on sale are still available for less than the street prices we’ve tracked over the past few months.
So to help anyone interested in picking up a new game separate the wheat from the chaff, we’ve picked out the best offers we could find from the 1,000+ deals listed across the two sales, highlighting the games that are both genuinely cheaper than usual and worth your time in the first place.
On the Microsoft side, the Xbox Spring Sale includes both Xbox and PC games and is scheduled to end on April 15. Microsoft has sent out $10 vouchers to select Xbox Live users alongside the sale, but note that many of the games on offer are also included in the company’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service. For PlayStation users, Sony says the PlayStation Store Spring Sale will run through April 28, and another batch of deals will be added to the current selection on April 14.
