During Prime Day, you can expect available game bundles to see big price slashes, including the Minecraft Creators Bundle.

Xbox One controllers aren’t cheap, making Prime Day the perfect opportunity to pick up a few spares as well. If you are planning on having company over to game, you’ll need to purchase at least one, because the system comes with one controller by default.

A game that has improved steadily with free content updates since its launch in 2018, Fallout 76 has turned into a true Fallout experience worthy of the series.

If you’re looking for the console with the biggest library of exclusive games this generation, then the PS4 is the console for you. Just like with the Xbox One, expect bundles containing both exclusive and third-party games to be available at significant discounts, and popular recent individual games should also have their prices dropped.

The PS4 is also the only console to support full-fledged virtual reality, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for a discount on PlayStation VR headsets as well as games. If you’ve never played in VR before, it’s like seeing color after a lifetime of black-and-white imagery.

How to choose a gaming console

Prime Day Gaming Deals 2019
Chris DeGraw/Digital Trends

If you are still in the market for a new gaming console, there are a few factors you need to consider. Exclusive games are still a major selling point for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch — you won’t find the games Sony and Nintendo develop coming to any other systems. However, Microsoft’s “exclusives” typically release on PC as well, making the Xbox Game Pass program, which gives you access to a vault of games for a monthly fee, the main reason to buy an Xbox One in 2019.

The other major factor to consider is the next generation of consoles. Microsoft will be launching its Project Scarlett system in 2020, and the PS5 will likely launch around the same time. This means a new Xbox One or PS4 system won’t be as useful for playing the latest games. The Nintendo Switch isn’t likely to have a direct successor in the near future, though we’ve heard rumors of updated hardware in the works. If you don’t care about having the very latest model, the Switch is probably your best choice for Prime Day.
