Have you been thinking about getting an Xbox this holiday? Now may be the time to pull the trigger. Starting December 22 and running through January 7, Microsoft is running a Countdown Sale and will cut prices on both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 consoles by 40-60 percent. There will also be daily specials on games and discounts on movies and TV show purchases as well. To cash in on the deals, you’ll want to visit Microsoft’s Countdown page starting December 22 and revisit for the latest deals.
And finally, Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens to the general public today, and DT’s very own movie reviewer, Rick Marshall, says that unless you’re a complete poser of a Star Wars fan, you’re gonna love it. Ok, those are my words, really, but the sentiment is about the same.
Marshall tell us J.J. Abrams’ latest installment in the Star Wars saga offers plenty of the sweet vibe we got from A New Hope with just a dash of Empire Strikes Back elements, all while bringing a totally fresh new story and characters to the mix with plenty of favorites from the past. It’s a must-see movie, and bound to break all sorts of records, so if you’re off to see the flick this weekend, we wish you all of the fun. We’ll be right there enjoying it with you.
That’s it for this week, be sure to check in with Digital Trends all weekend for fun and interesting tech stories that will make you look like the smart one at all those holiday cocktail parties you’ve got to go to. We’ll see ya again next week.
