Likewise, you can find Razer Blade 15 gaming laptops, hard drives, graphics cards, and gaming headsets for up to 50% off, and we’ve got all of the details below.

Prime Day is an excellent time to jump on literally 100,000+ Amazon Prime Day deals, and you can save a tremendous amount on games and equipment — sometimes seeing prices drop to as low as $10 or less, even for newer titles.

The best Prime Day video game deals will be reserved for Amazon Prime members, of course, but you can still jump on a lot of what’s out there. Even if you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a quick 30-day trial and take advantage of those shipping savings, then cancel your subscription before it expires. (Maybe use that time to binge-watch some of the best Prime Video shows, too.)

If you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, you ought to sign up to be able to get the most bang for your Prime-Day buck. Luckily, Amazon lets you sign up and immediately get access to all of the best Prime Day video game deals.

One last thing: Prime Day has become such a cultural phenomenon that other companies are jumping on board too, so don’t forget to look for deals from Target, Walmart and Best Buy.


The Best Prime Day Video Game Deals

These are some of the best Prime Day video game deals we’ve seen yet. While not all of the deals will be announced ahead of time, we’ve rounded up the ones you can take advantage of right now — and believe us, you should pull the trigger sooner rather than later. There’s a limited stock, and it will sell out quickly.

Razer Blade 15 Base Gaming Laptop

Looking for one of the only gaming laptops with a 4K OLED screen? Then don’t miss out on Amazon’s discount on Razer Blade 15 gaming laptops. That’s just one of the Razer gaming computers on sale right now.

ASUS ROG Strix NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Cards

Not too long ago, hard drives and graphics cards were impossible to find, but they’re starting to become more widely available. Of course, they’re still incredibly expensive, which is why Prime Day is the perfect time to order a new graphics card for your gaming rig. This ASUS graphics card powered by NVIDIA is 17% off for Prime Day, letting you save $135. We’ve included more Prime Day deals on graphics cards below, or you can see all the available discounts at Amazon.

Amazon Luna Controller

Amazon Luna is Amazon’s cloud gaming service. While subscribing to Luna’s channels is as little as $5 per month, the controller itself normally costs $70. During Prime Day, that price is down to just $40. It’s not just for cloud gaming, either — the Luna controller is pretty well made and works great as a backup for Switch and Xbox gamers.

Far Cry 6

The Far Cry series has always been popular, but the fact that Far Cry 6 boasts Giancarlo Esposito in its voice cast garnered a lot of interest. It maintains the same open-world exploration and gameplay fans have come to love, with a gritter storyline that previous entries. You can snag it for just $15 on PS4, down from its usual $60. There’s a PS5 upgrade included.

Alienware m15 R7 Gaming Laptop

If you don’t want to build your own gaming PC, then you’ll need a gaming laptop that can handle your favorite games. And when shopping for the best gaming laptops, there are only a few brands we trust — Razer, Alienware and Lenovo chief among them. Fortunately for gamers on a budget, some of this year’s best Prime Day deals on video games cover Alienware gaming laptops like these:

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

The cast might not be quite the same as in the MCU (and it’s a little weird to see anyone except Chris Pratt as Star Lord), but this is a fun game with a lot of action and great storytelling. PlayStation 5 gamers can score this game for just $30 versus its usual price of $60, while Xbox gamers can get it for slightly less at $27. Bear in mind that it’s also on Game Pass, too.

Elden Ring

It’s impossible to talk video games without mentioning this year’s Souls-like. Elden Ring is easily one of the most popular games to release yet in 2022 and is a strong contender for Game of the Year. It comes with all the difficulty and hard-won progression of any Souls-like, but with systems that make it more approachable for newcomers to the franchise. During Prime Day, you can pick it up for $47 versus its usual price of $60.

Razer Kraken Ultimate RGB USB Gaming Headset

The Kraken is a more budget-friendly gaming headset, made even more budget-friendly for Prime Day, where you can pick it up for $57. It has a retractable noise-canceling mic and is THX 7.1 surround sound capable.

3 Month PC Game Pass Membership

Game Pass is the single best value in gaming in the modern world, and perhaps that there’s ever been. A quick count shows 521 different titles to choose from, especially now that EA Play is included. That’s more titles than this author has ever owned in his entire 29 years of gaming, and almost all of them are great. You can try out Game Pass on PC for three months for just $25, down from $30.

Razer Kraken Gaming Headset in Green

The Razer Kraken provides 7.1 surround sound and positional audio to give you the best advantage in gaming possible. You’ll be able to hear opponents as they approach you from the sides or from behind, and the custom-tuned 50mm drivers deliver high-quality sound. Best of all, the cooling gel cushions on the ear pieces let you play all day without getting swamp ear. During Prime Day, you can pick it up just $40 instead of its usual $80.

Ghostwire: Tokyo

Ghostwire: Tokyo is one of the biggest PS5 exclusives of the year. It’s a creepy game that throws the player into the heart of a futuristic Tokyo infested with supernatural foes. It’s an action game that lets you use elemental abilities to fight your way through to the heart of the mystery and answer the question: where the heck did everyone go? Right now, it’s $50 instead of $60, but you might see greater savings during Prime Day itself.
