These games will all be cut down to $29.99 for both physical copies and digital download.

Following Sony’s latest announcement of selling over 7 million PlayStation 4 consoles, Microsoft has stated that its latest console, Xbox One, has just passed the 5 million units shipped mark, according to an announcement from Xbox corporate vice president of marketing, strategy and business Yusef Mehdi.
