Microsoft is not playing around with the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale that runs now through July 30. There are a bunch of Xbox Play Anywhere games in the sale that allows you to play the games on either Xbox or PC. That means PC gamers on Windows 10 can also take advantage of the big deals event.

Here’s our look at some of the highlights:

Forza Motorsport 7 Standard Edition is $30 down from its MSRP of $60, and the Ultimate Edition of the game is $50, a 50 percent discount from its $100 MSRP. Forza 7 is a fantastic racing game, though when it came out we didn’t like the loot box system.

Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition is also on sale today for $30 down from the $60 MSRP. It's another fun game, but one we had mixed feelings about. Finally, Sea of Thieves is $48 instead of $60, a modest deal but a game we love to play.

There are also a bunch of well-known Steam games that the Microsoft Store is selling for a whole lot less:

Ark: Survival Evolved is $24 from Microsoft today, while Steam is selling it for $60. The Long Dark is $12, and Steam has it for $30. Everspace is also $12 down from $30, and Tacoma is half off at $10, which we called “a pleasant and brisk experience with a stunning eye for industrial design” in our review.

Finally, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Gold Edition is $30, while it’s currently $50.38 on Steam.

Those are our top picks, but there are more deals to be had for PC gamers. Just make sure the games you pick are listed on Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere roster before you buy or you’ll be looking for an Xbox to play them.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
