Few things lose value more quickly after you buy them than cars and video games. As my dad always told me, your new car loses 30% of its value the moment you drive it off the lot. And as for video games, well, you no sooner buy a game at list price and then something like this happens: Right now Microsoft is having a huge sale on Xbox games.
There are about 200 games marked down right now. Some are discounted just a couple of bucks while others are slashed as much as 85%. There's a lot of stuff on sale, but it helps to be a Tom Clancy fan, because there's a lot of that here. I also spy some Tomb Raider titles, the Life is Strange series, some Final Fantasy and Just Cause goodness... and more. You can browse the whole sale by clicking the button up top, or check out the list below, where I've collected the best-looking deals. In a few cases, Amazon comes close to Microsoft's sale prices -- but does not beat them.
