The technology giant said this week that it's debuting a mini-sale on its online Xbox store that would last from April 11 through April 17. During the sale, Microsoft said that "select Xbox Store games" would get a 67% discount and that members of its Xbox Live Gold service would receive another 10% discount on games.

The company did not say which video game titles would receive the 67% discount or if the big price cut applies to every game and not certain titles. Some of the popular video games that will be for sale include Overwatch, Fifa 17, Titanfall 2, and Bioshock Infinite, but Microsoft did not reveal how much they would cost, according to a Microsoft YouTube video.

Additionally, Microsoft said that Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners can receive a Gold membership for $1 dollar "for the first month of membership" during the week of the sale. A current one-month membership for the Gold service costs $10 a month and $60 for a full year.

Microsoft also said that it would cut $15 dollars off its Xbox Design Lab controllers, a type of controller that people can customize with special colors. The controller normally costs $80.
