Not to be outshone by Steam’s upcoming Summer Sale, or The Humble Store’s now Witcher-inclusive Spring Sale, Microsoft are throwing a sale of their own.

Creatively titled the Xbox One Backward Compatibility Super Sale, the sale offers up to 70% off a few hundred of the Xbox 360’s finest titles that are currently backwards compatible with the Xbox One.

The sale was teased earlier in the week by @majornelson (Larry Hryb), promising great deals on titles like Red Dead Redemption and Black Ops 3.

The sale really is extensive, with highlights including the Dead Space series as well as other titles like The Witcher 2 and the recently added GTA 4.

Some other highlights include:
