Today’s best Prime Day gaming deals

The discounts that you’ll enjoy tomorrow from Prime Day gaming deals will be huge, but you don’t have to wait because some of them are already available. Here are some of the best gaming deals that you can take advantage of right now.

What Prime Day gaming deals to expect

There may be some discounts for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and their games and accessories, but most of the Prime Day gaming sales will likely focus on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. They may not be next-generation consoles, but because of their massive gaming libraries and wide range of accessories, they’re still worth buying.

What Prime Day gaming deals we saw last year

Last year’s Prime Day gaming deals focused on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, but that was before Sony and Microsoft launched the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. However, even with hype surrounding the next-generation consoles, Amazon’s offers for the trio of consoles proved to be very popular for gamers who were expanding their collection or taking advantage of the discounts to buy into their platform of choice.

Should you buy new gaming stuff on Prime Day?

If you see Prime Day gaming sales for the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, or a powerful gaming PC or laptop, you shouldn’t hold back on finalizing the purchase because there’s no assurance that there will be better offers in the future, such as on Black Friday. Investing in the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch is also recommended if you don’t own these consoles yet, as even the most prolific gamers will spend years going through the games that are available for them.
