Xbox Microsoft has been working to refresh the avatar system and this week there was a new sneak peak of a special feature. Wheelchairs will be available for use by those that want their avatar to be more like them. It’s not clear if these will be part of the standard options, or if you have to pay though. Here’s the preview of the chair and new avatar model.

Red Dead Redemption It’s been a long time since Red Dead Redemption has been in the news, but now it is. Microsoft announced early in the week that it would be available for backward compatibility starting today. Since then, sales for the game increased by 6,000%, reportedly. It was the third highest voted game in the user feedback polls for backwards compatible games so obviously a lot of people are happy. Even better, a majority of the DLC is currently available for free through the Xbox Store. Unfortunately, the big Undead Nightmare pack is not. Be sure to check it out while you can and grab the DLC while it’s free.

Deals of the Week

No sale links this week. It’s the Ultimate Summer game sale with 250 items on sale. We decided not to clutter this up with a wall of links, but the real reason is nobody wants to spend hours making all of them. So, you can find your sales for Xbox One and Xbox 360 in the links. Windows 10 is also having a sale so be sure to check those out if you have it. Be sure to check the bundles in the Xbox One list. There’s some great deals where buying the complete edition of a game may be cheaper than the season pass. Feel free to share any good deals you find, or games to recommend below.
