Steep pre-order deals available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has announced the Xbox Live games with Gold that are available on December 2016.

For those unfamiliar with how this works, during every month Xbox Live Gold members will receive four new free games - two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360.

The Xbox One has lagged behind Sony's PlayStation 4 in sales in all major territories around the world, but since July in the USA and September in the United Kingdom and Australia, it has been the best-selling console. This was surpassed by the Xbox One, of which 33,000 units were shifted. Beginning in July, Xbox One sales picked up, taking over the top spot in console sales since. I think we'll look back on 2016 as a tipping point for Xbox One. That momentum has been good for Xbox, which released the Xbox One S and announced next year's Project Scorpio, both of which offer features not now available on any PlayStation 4 device.

The Colombian Senate around Tuesday midnight ratified the peace agreement between the government and the armed rebel group FARC. Congress voted unanimously late Wednesday in favor of a new peace agreement with the FARC.

Overall, Black Friday was a big day for consoles, but the PS4 took the crown for most sold. We are giving them confidence that they have made a right point. Target is currently running a 15% off coupon for all things video games, and we think Amazon's price robot is now price-matching. You'll have to login or add the game to your cart before you can see the discount.

Every game nominated is on sale across the platforms for which it's available.
