After being delayed several months due to COVID-19, Amazon Prime Day 2020 is still happening, and it’s live right now on Amazon’s website with thousands of deals available, with more to come over the next 48 hours. As usual, you’ll need a Prime membership to shop the sale, and a 30-day free trial is available.
Despite happening later than usual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Day is bringing steep discounts on some of the best games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Prime Day is also an excellent opportunity to snag consoles and PC hardware at a discount, and you’ll also find sweet deals on gaming accessories, merch, Blu-rays, collectibles, and practically anything on your wish list. If you’re looking to shop in the Prime Day sale, we’ve got you covered. Below, we’ve rounded up the very best deals so far and everything else you
It’s that time of year again, where Amazon has Prime Day, a shopping holiday where big discounts are offered on products if you have Amazon Prime, and 2020’s edition may not land you a PS5 or Xbox Series X, but it does have a number of gaming deals that you should check out all the same.
I’ve gone through the pile and picked out a few of the best deals I can find, including a few things I’m going to get myself. This spans PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC, and includes both games themselves and accessories.
Here’s what I would have an eye on if I were you.

Back in March we never imagined we’d still be spending so much time at home as the leaves drop from the trees, right? But such is 2020. It’s no wonder gaming has been so popular. It’s a great escape: Immersing yourself in another world lets you take a break from this one.
If you’re a committed gamer, chances are you’re ready for some fresh challenges. And if you’re new to the form, well, now is the perfect time to give it a try. Amazon Prime Day is delivering all sorts of incredible deals to bring you some gaming excitement, whether
When Sony and Microsoft launch the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S in November, console gamers will be treated to a serious uplift in graphics performance. Gorgeous graphics, higher resolutions and increased fidelity and immersion is the typical promise of next-gen consoles. But you know what? I’ve been living that reality as a PC gamer for years. What I’m truly excited about — and if I’m being honest, a little jealous about — is storage drive tech that hasn’t even seeped its way into PCs yet. And I hope these will be literal game-changers for the entire game industry.
Why? Because time is a precious resource, and I’d like to waste less of mine.
Sure, both Sony and Microsoft are touting dramatic reductions in loading times, and quality-of-life improvements like this are more than welcome. But that’s not what grinds
Part of the marketing and hype lead-up to any tech launch, now, is a bespoke Twitter hashtag emoji. And now, ahead of its November 10 launch, Xbox Series X has its own.
Microsoft has chosen a Series X over the cuter Series S for its emoji series, and the image will now be attached to several Twitter hashtags. In a Twitter thread, Xbox announced the following hashtags will carry an image of the powerful rectangular console:
Of course, in emoji form, the Series X is a tiny little thing–in real life, it’s quite large.
Next month sees the release of two brand-new Xbox consoles, and retailers are already sold out of preorders for both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The Series X and Series S release November 10 for $500 and $300, respectively, and as of now, it’s proving to be quite challenging to secure either.
Where to preorder the Xbox Series X and Series S
Xbox Series X and Series S preorders were sold out at all major retailers as of our last update. Xbox preorder listings went live at Target, Walmart, Microsoft, GameStop, and other stores on September 22 but sold out as fast as they appeared. You can check the main store listings below in case of availability. In a recent tweet, Xbox urged its followers to sign up with retailers for stock updates and said more consoles will be available on release day.
If “Better with Kinect” was the great misstep of the Xbox One launch, it seems more and more like a similar issue, albeit not on the same level perhaps, is Microsoft relying so heavily on Halo Infinite making it out for the Xbox Series X/S launch.
In the last two days we have seen promotion for the Series X ramp up. There’s a new TV spot for the console starring Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya, and Series X boxes have been spotted in the wild making their way to retailers.
What do both have in common? Master Chief is heavily focused on in the ad, and he makes up the entire back of the box.
It’s very clear just how much Microsoft was banking on Halo Infinite making it out for the Series X launch, and now that it isn’t, and does not in fact even have a
Yesterday morning, I woke up to videos of Assassin’s Creed: Unity. I have to be honest, I haven’t thought much about that game in a few years: the Ps4/Xbox One launch title was pretty and ambitious, but also loaded with bugs, bloated with features and ultimately a major black eye for what was then a yearly franchise. It’s been largely forgotten as the series reinvented itself with Origins, which is why I was surprised to see this Digital Foundry video running the game at a smooth 60 FPS, many of those launch bugs long-since patched. And I’m going to be honest: I kind of want to play it.
And while I’m a whole lot less likely to play Blinx The Timesweeper, a 2002 title for the original Xbox, I can’t say that my interest wasn’t piqued by Geoff Keighley booting the thing
It’s shaping up to be an even busier fall then usual, with both Amazon Prime Day 2020 and the launch of the Xbox Series X and S happening within a month of each other. Of course, we won’t see any deals on the next-gen consoles–we doubt they’ll even be available to purchase–but there are still a lot of games and accessories that will work with the new consoles, and Prime Day is the perfect time to stock up before your Xbox Series X or S arrives. 2020 has been full of awesome deals on all things Xbox, and we expect Prime Day to be no different.
Amazon Prime Day lasts 48 hours and kicks off on Tuesday, October 13, at midnight PT / 3 AM ET. Amazon has already set some early Prime Day deals live, which consist of 4K TVs, smart home devices, and other tech gadgets. Unfortunately, you
