Microsoft discounts some XBL content for the holidays

Sony yesterday announced that the PlayStation Network winter sale would start today. Not to be outdone, Microsoft has also announced a sale, running from today until Monday, that will feature different deals each day. While these deals are only valid within the US, it would be a good time to check out Trials HD (400 MSP) or ‘Splosion Man (160 MSP) if their price points have been an issue.

For those who want to venture outside for some real shopping, Microsoft has also teamed up with some retailers to provide Halo: Reach and Fable 3 for less than $40. No listing of participating sellers have been given but it’s pretty safe to assume any place that sells videogames would be on board.
