This week’s sales for Xbox Live Gold subscribers are actually pretty damn good- if only because some of the best exclusives on the Xbox are being offered for cheaper prices. Forza Motorsport 5 and Forza Horizon 2 are both on sale this week for Xbox Live Gold members.
Forza Motorsport 5 was an Xbox One launch game, and was honestly considered rather disappointing, thanks to a lack of content, as well as a misguided emphasis on microtransactions; it has since been succeeded by the far superior Forza Motorsport 6. However, for the current asking price, it’s not a bad buy at all. Forza Horizon 2 on the other hand is flat out a great racing game, possibly the best (non Kart) racing game of this generation- so being able to get it for as cheap as it is being offered for is a pretty sweet proposition.
On the Xbox 360 front, you can get Syndicate for cheap, should you want them- but really, the Xbox One is the star of the show this week.
