Big game discounts are on the horizon this week for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Xbox Live's Ultimate Game Sale is almost upon us, as confirmed by Microsoft's Larry 'Major Nelson' Hryb in a tweet this weekend.

The Xbox Ultimate Game Sale shows up from time to time and has previously offered many games a quite big discounts. The sale has also run daily deals too.

They say it offered discounts of up 85% off games like Lords of the Fallen, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Xbox Live Gold members appear to get the better discounted deals.

We will let you know when it officially kicks off. In the mean time you can think about which games you might want to pick up.
