Microsoft Experiments with Xbox Live Notifications for Discount Games at Your Wish List

Microsoft is looking for ways to make the Xbox Store Wish List feature more useful for Xbox users. The company has begun to test sending Xbox Live notifications to users when Xbox games from their wish list are currently on sale.

The user of Reddit xektor17 shared the following screen capture of an Xbox Live notification informing him that the Red Dead Redemption 2 game that he had added to his wish list had been reduced during the current Xbox Spring sale (via Windows Central). Major Nelson of Xbox confirmed in Reddit's thread that the Xbox team was "testing this with a small group of people".

Microsoft is already using Xbox Live notifications to inform Xbox players of new versions of Xbox Game Pass or to share other Xbox related information. The advantage is that these notifications are visible in the Xbox app for Windows 10, iOS and Android, so that users can see them when they are away from their console.

Do you have many games in your Xbox Store Wish List and would you like to receive personalized notifications when they are on sale? Sound off in the comments below.
