Best deals on video games, consoles, and gaming accessories for August 2020

Right now is a good time for gamers – lately, a lot of people have found themselves with extra time on their hands. Nintendo is killing it with the Switch, and with the slew of awesome PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles that came our way during the past year, things just keep looking better. We’re still enjoying releases like Death Stranding, Gears of War 5, The Outer Worlds, and Luigi’s Mansion 3, but there’s also a ton of top-rated games from previous years that you can score on the cheap today.

The future is looking pretty exciting as well, with Sony finally confirming that the PS5 console will finally be rolling out late this year — and there’s little doubt that Microsoft’s next machine, code-named Project Scarlett, won’t be lagging far behind. Nintendo also recently rolled out the Switch Lite, a handheld-only version of its popular hybrid console. Keep an eye out here for new releases of games, consoles, accessories, and more.
