Tag / Black Friday
Black Friday is an informal name for the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, the fourth Thursday of November, which has been regarded as the beginning of the country’s Christmas shopping season since 1952.
Microsoft has announced the next group of free games for Xbox Games with Gold and these are definitely some games to get excited about, especially for gamers who didn't partake in buying more games on Black Friday.
Not everyone has upgraded to the Xbox One just yet but these Black Friday deals could be enough to persuade most Xbox 360 gamers who are itching for a new console; the Xbox Scorpio is due for a late 2017 release and rumours suggest that the console will be very expensive due to its 'premium' nature.
It's been a good week for Xbox with the Black Friday sale starting early and a good number of discounts being given out for Games with Gold players; Xbox Live is still currently only $1 for its first month making it a good time to purchase a subscription.
This is a nice weekend for all gamers with two games from the biggest developers being available for free this weekend; Blizzard's FPS game Overwatch and Ubisoft's MMO sport game Steep are both available for players to test for free all weekend.
Microsoft is starting Black Friday a full week early this year and the company has just released a special trailer to commemorate the massive sale event which includes over 250 game deals. The Xbox Store Black Friday sale starts on November 18th and will be ending on the 28th, several days after the real Black Friday which takes place on the 25th.
