We have been on a roll lately in terms of discounted Xbox gift cards. Amazon is once again offering various denominations at 10% off.

There’s no need for 9to5Toys readers to ever spend full price on anything on the Xbox Marketplace these days.

Despite receiving its fair share of criticism since release last year, Final Fantasy XV is largely considered to be a success with several spin-offs and expansion DLCs carrying the project into 2017. While I certainly thought we might see a Switch announcement for the latest fantasy epic, it looks like Square will be turning to mobile platforms first. expand full story
