You'll also be able to get discounts on Xbox One services. One month of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass will be available for just $1 each. Remember, Xbox Game Pass gives you access to all Microsoft Studios games at launch, meaning you can play the full versions of games like State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves all month for just a buck. Not a bad deal.

In terms of games, Microsoft will offer discounts on over 300 titles, including Battlefield 1, FIFA 18, NBA 2K18, Assassin's Creed Origins, Forza Motorsport 7, Destiny 2, Super Lucky's Tale, Monster Hunter: World, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and Sea of Thieves. You'll also be able to save money on game add-ons and expansions--though which ones, exactly, have yet to be announced.

We'll have more details like specific sale prices on games once the sale goes live on June 7.
