**[UPDATE]: It’s all official now, of course… and we have the last missing piece from the daily deals. Check below for some great offers!

Starting on the 18th, Microsoft will be hosting their annual countdown to the new year sale on Xbox Live,… and this year, the Countdown to 2013 Sale features a huge list of bestselling games and game content including: XBLA, DLC. Games On Demand, and Season Pass deals. The sale has not yet been formally announced, but we can tell you now what will be offered, and the selections are impressive!

When the Countdown to 2013 Sale is formally announced, we’ll have an update. Many of the discounts and prices may be featured as daily deal reveals so we cannot promise that they’ll all be collected and posted ahead of time, but if there’s something on your wishlist it’s a fine time to mark the calendar for the best day to buy it.

At the very least, there is an entire section in the list that will be on sale from the 18th through the 31st, and we’ll certainly be able to post that much of the pricing. I know I’ve waited far too long for Plants vs Zombies, an oversight soon to be corrected!  Hoorah!

*Please note that Double Fine’s Kinect Party will be ABSOLUTELY FREE to download and play from December 18 – 31, so download it and play!
