Get all the best gaming and console deals this Prime Day

Prime video game
Update: Prime Day is only 5 days away, with news of the latest deals beginning to surface! Despite the long, long list of reasons why 2021 sucked, gaming has continued to be an escape for many of us. And, despite the poor stock levels we’ve experienced over the past 12 months, there is still hope on the horizon for Amazon Prime Day 2021! With both the Xbox Series X/S and the Playstation 5 potentially being restocked, we could see a whole slew of exciting bundle deals come to life on Amazon Prime Day. Whilst this isn’t a given just yet, it is hope in a time where there hasn’t been much to look forward to. This is why events like Amazon Prime Day are so great. If you want to save some money on your gaming collection, check out the deals below, and enjoy.

Amazon Prime Membership

There is one little bit of small print when it comes to Amazon Prime Day – you have to be a Prime member to get access to the deals themselves. If you’re already a member then you don’t need to do anything (although you can set up some deal alerts to make sure you don’t miss out). If you’re not a Prime member, read on to find out what to do next.

If you’ve never been a Prime member before then you can get a free 30-day trial membership to try out the service. Not only will this give you access to the Prime Day deals on offer, but it will also allow you to enjoy the other benefits of Prime for the full month.

If you have been a Prime member but canceled your membership, then you won’t be able to take advantage of the free trial. But, the one-month subscription fee can definitely be worth it if you’re looking to get your hands on a few games, or even a new console this Prime Day.

What To Look For - Prime Day Gaming Deals

Amazon usually does some great deals on gaming during Prime Day, so you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared to get the most out of the event whether you’re buying for Xbox, Playstation, or Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Switch Deals

Every year, we see great bundles and price drops for a range of Nintendo Switch products. If you were one of the unlucky ones that missed out on grabbing a Switch at the start of lockdown, this is the perfect time to join the hype. And, since the console has been out for some time now, you can expect some pretty hefty discounts.

Playstation 4 / Playstation 5 Deals

We suspect that there will be a limited number of PS5 pre-orders added in time for Prime Day discounts, so if you’re wanting to get your hands on one of their next-gen consoles, make sure you’re ready to go as soon as the deals go live. For those waiting on upgrading, there are bound to be some pretty impressive discounts on PS4 consoles and games too now that they’re older models.

Xbox One / Xbox Series X/S

Just like with the new Playstation, the new Xbox consoles will likely get restocked in time for Prime Day. And again, we’re likely to see big discounts on Xbox One consoles and games as the newer models are hitting the market and taking their place.
