Between the ongoing Steam Summer Sale and now Amazon Prime Day, it’s a great time to save on a wide swath of video games for both consoles and PC alike. Whether you play games on Sony’s PlayStation 5, the Nintendo Switch, Microsoft’s Xbox Series X / S, or a Windows PC, gaming can be an expensive hobby — especially with more and more games launching at the higher $69.99 pricing tier. But, thankfully, there are still a number of worthwhile gaming deals available to snag before Prime Day officially comes to a close in just a few hours.
Here, we’ll highlight and list out all the exceptional gaming deals we can find this Prime Day — on both the games themselves and the accessories that accompany them. From headsets and controllers to monitors and related tech for streaming on Twitch or YouTube, we got it all.
Tears of the Kingdom is the latest installment in the long-running Zelda franchise. The storyline and gameplay are similar to that of Breath of the Wild, but enough has changed to make Link’s return to Hyrule plenty special.
This remastered rescue from the Wii U generation has new life on the Nintendo Switch, with classic-style 2D platforming action for up to four players across over 160 levels.
