It should come as no surprise to anyone (but some folks asked, so we thought we'd clarify) that Microsoft have confirmed that they'll be running a range of Black Friday digital deals this year.

Over on, a page has appeared that promises "Blockbuster games. Exclusive deals. No lines." although nothing else is specified beyond that. Black Friday falls on November 27th, so there's not too long to wait to find out what will be on offer.

We'd imagine that the sale will be spread over a couple of days, and the word on the street is that more than a few of the titles from the backwards compatibility list will make it into the discount bin.

Keep your powder dry and hold fire...
