Are you looking for something to play on your brand new Xbox Series X|S? Here’s a look at this week’s three Xbox digital game store sales.
One of the nice things about Microsoft’s cross-generation strategy is that, for the most part, the Xbox digital games store is now just full of, well, games. This week’s crop of discounts is a perfect example of how the approach has paid off. Who wouldn’t want to revisit, for example, Stuntman Ignition 13 years after its release on the newest, most powerful console in the world? What times we live in.
Other highlights from this week’s Deals with Gold lineup include Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and a crop of Ubisoft games. Watch Dogs 2, Trials Fusion, and Splinter Cell Chaos Theory are our favourites.
The Bandai Namco sale is also impressive and shows just how strong a generation the publisher has had. And it’s not all anime. Our picks are 11:11 Memories Retold, Man of Medan, Get Even, and Project Cars 2. A whopping 85% discount on Soulcalibur VI also shouldn’t be missed.
Finally, this week’s spotlight selection includes the enjoyable retro-style platform adventure Owlboy, and twin-stick space capitalist romp, Vostok Inc.
Both sale run through to November 24, 2020. Here are some more recommendations.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
