Watch teaser for Xbox Live's huge game sale, which includes backwards compatibility discounts

200-plus deals will be offered starting December 22; see some of the discounted games here.

Microsoft's upcoming Xbox Store "Countdown" sale, which the company is calling the "biggest sale ever" for the platform, starts in just a few days on December 22. And now, Microsoft has released a teaser video for it and talked, in general terms, about what kinds of savings gamers can expect.

There will be more than 200 deals offered throughout the course of the event, which ends on January 7, 2016. These will include daily and weekly deals for Xbox One and Xbox 360 games, as well as movies and TV shows.

As you can see in the video above, some of the discounted games will include Microsoft games like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza Motorsport 6, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, as well as Fallout 4, Call of duty: Black Ops III, Grand Theft Auto V, Destiny and Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

In addition, Microsoft says it will offer discounts on "more than 10" Xbox One backward-compatible games, though these were not named. New backward-compatible games were added this week.

Overall, Xbox owners can look forward to offers of up to 60 percent off. Xbox Live Gold members will save an extra 10 percent on top of the normal discounts.

Xbox Live isn't the only place where you'll be able to get a deal before the holidays. Steam's Winter sale is rumored to start December 22, while the third week of PlayStation Network's Holiday sale will begin next week. Keep checking back with GameSpot for all the best gaming deals.
