TL;DR – Best Gaming Deals for Prime Day
Free $50 Gift Card with Meta Quest 2
One of the best Prime Deals in the gaming category gets you a free $50 Amazon gift card when you buy a Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headset. The deal applies to both the 128GB and 256GB models. You can use the money on anything you want in the Prime Day sale, or put it toward an Elite Strap with Battery.
PlayStation Game Deals
Some heavy hitters on PS5 are on sale during Amazon's Prime Day sale. You can save big on games like Elden Ring, No Man's Sky, and Dying Light 2. If you've been meaning to pick up any of these games, now's a good time to do so. See our full list of Prime Day PS5 deals for more.
PS5-Compatible SSD Deals
Could your PS5 use more storage? Prices have been plummeting since Sony started letting people upgrade their SSDs, and Prime Day is bringing the prices even lower. Now's a great time to pick up a PS5-compatible SSD.
PS5 Headset Deals
There are no shortage of PS5-compatible headsets. If you're constantly having to turn down the volume when you play, you might want to pick up one of these. Then you can listen to your games as loud as you darn well please. These are some of the best gaming headsets.
Other PS5 Accessory Deals
There's a terrific deal going on for Razer's PS5 DualSense charging docks, bringing them down to $19.99 each. They come in just about every color the DualSense comes in, and they're all on sale. Also on sale are some racing wheels.
Free $25 in Amazon Credit When You Buy a Nintendo Switch
This is the first deal on Switch hardware we've seen this Prime Day. You can get a free $25 Amazon credit when you buy a new Switch by entering promo code NSO25 at checkout.
Nintendo Switch Game Deals
The Switch is one of the greatest video game platforms of all time, and right now Prime members can score some great deals on great Switch games. Farming sim fans will love Rune Factory and Story of Seasons. RPG fans can check out Octopath Traveler II. All those and more are on sale now with some of the best Prime Day Switch deals.
MicroSD Card Deals
The Switch is a wonderful piece of gaming hardware, but it doesn't come with very much storage for your digital games. Thankfully, adding more space is as simple as popping in a microSD card, on sale now.
Nintendo Switch Accessory Deals
The Switch is a great handheld console, but honestly the speakers could use some help. Plug in a headset, and you'll hear your games as they were meant to be heard. Better yet, there's a headset on sale for a wide array of price points, so you can choose the one that works best for you. See all of the best Switch accessories for more.
Refurbished Xbox Series S Deal
One of the best deals in this year's Prime Day sale is this one, which gets you a refurbished Xbox Series S for $100 cheaper than you'd pay for a new one. Imagine, paying $199 for a device that can run Starfield later this year. Not too shabby.
How to Avoid The Xbox Game Pass Price Hike
To avoid the new Game Pass price hike, we recommend securing your current subscription for as long as possible. You can stack up to a maximum of 36 months of Game Pass, meaning you have the option to accumulate 3-month subscriptions up to 12 times.
Admittedly, this approach might put a strain on your wallet, totaling $479.88 if you purchase the 3-month codes via an enticing Prime Day deal we've uncovered on Amazon. However, when you compare it to the new cost of Game Pass Ultimate for 36 months at $16.99 per month, amounting to $611.64, you'll realize you're saving a substantial $131.76 on your subscription for the next three years.
Xbox Game Deals
The sale doesn't have quite as many Xbox games in it as the other platforms, but at least you can save on The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. That's something, isn't it?
Xbox Controller Deals
In my opinion, you can never have too many controllers. You never know when someone will pop on by and want to play Overcooked or It Takes Two, or any local multiplayer game. Plus, both first-party and third-party Xbox controllers are on sale now.
Xbox Storage Deals
If you're constantly having to juggle games on and off the SSD in your Xbox Series X|S, this is the deal for you. In fact, this is the lowest price we've seen yet on the official Seagate expansion card for Xbox.
Xbox Headset Deals
Does your family complain when you stay up playing loud shooters late into the night? They'll stop complaining if you pick up an Xbox headset that lets no one but you hear the delightful explosions you cause on the screen.
More Great Deals For Prime Day
