These are the best PC deals in the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale

The Xbox Ultimate Game Sale is on now, and there are quite a few good PC gaming deals to be had.

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
