Microsoft launches seasonal XBL sale

Portal, GTA, Trials, more going dirt cheap.

It's the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US on Thursday, which is traditionally followed by insane shopping deals on the subsequent 'Black Friday'.

This year, some of those insane shopping deals are heading across the sea, courtesy of Microsoft.

From today until 29th November, a number of festive Xbox Live deals are open to gamers around the world, not just those nursing a gut-full of roast turkey and pumpkin pie.

Here's a selection of what you can pick up:

  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - 400 Microsoft Points
  • Halo: Combat Evolved - 400 Microsoft Points
  • Trials HD - 400 Microsoft Points
  • 'Splosion Man - 160 Microsoft Points
  • Monkey Island: Special Edition - 400 Microsoft Points
  • Madden NFL Arcade - 400 Microsoft Points
  • Mega Man 10 - 400 Microsoft Points
  • Portal: Still Alive - 400 Microsoft Points
  • Puzzle Quest 2 - 800 Microsoft Points

Head on over to Microsoft's dedicated website for details on what else is on offer, and for special one day-only deals due on Black Friday itself. Take note though: Zune Movie deals are US only.
