Microsoft has kick-started their Black Friday sale on Xbox Live with big discounts on forty Xbox 360 titles.

Included among the deals is the entire Gears of War Trilogy, Rockstar games like Red Dead Redemption and Bully, Borderlands 1 & 2 and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

The UK sale consists largely of deals that have existed in prior sales, giving players the chance to purchase at prices they may have missed before.
