Games dominate this week’s Windows Store Red Stripe Deals

Once again, Microsoft is leveraging its Deals Hub app to showcase some sweet discounts on apps, music, movies, and television.

Microsoft is in the middle of retooling its consumer front facing marketplace by combining its gaming, music, video and app experiences into a single purchase point. The company is also attempting to get as many eyeballs in front of its Windows Store through various means and so far, the company has put its Store icon front and center in the task bar of every free copy of Windows 10 its shipped. Another tactic involves highlighting several apps and premier developers in some Windows 10 users’ widely accessible Start Screen as well as adding Store app suggestion in the search results of Cortana on the desktop.

Lastly, for those in the know, Microsoft also offers an app that cultivates and features weekly offerings, discounts and bargains that may be a little more nuanced to find in the Windows Store. In what Microsoft has dubbed the Deals Hub app, users can often find a treasure trove of deals.
