Amazon Prime Day 2022 gaming deals: Here's what to expect

by Pierre Bell

The deals we'd like to see on consoles, games and essential gaming accessories.

Amazon Prime Day 2022 is taking place in July, meaning we can expect a huge range of price reductions across almost every department. Of course, we're only interested in all things gaming, such as games and consoles, as well as accessories like monitors, keyboards and headsets.

We've compiled a list of products we saw reduced last year and what we can expect this year in terms of discounts for each category. When Prime Day 2022 swings around, we'll be keeping this page updated with all the best gaming deals we can find.

Prime Day PlayStation deals

With PlayStation 5 consoles still difficult to come by, it's hard to see a discount on these any time soon. However, Amazon did have some stock last year, even if they did fly out in seconds like always. Hopefully we'll see a stock refresh at Amazon for the console.

Regardless of console stock issues, there were some great deals on PS4 and PS5 games last year. Returnal was available for $49 and Final Fantasy VII Remake was just $30. We can expect some more reductions on PS5 titles like Returnal, as well as discounts on multiplatform titles on the PS4.

US deals:

  • Returnal (PS5) currently unavailable
  • Deathloop (PS5) - $24.99
  • Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (PS5) - $29.99
  • Back 4 Blood (PS5) - $15.99
  • Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5) - currently unavailable
  • DualSense charging station (PS5) - $29

UK deals:

  • Ratchet Clank: Rift Apart (PS5) - £39.99
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction (PS4) - £24.99
  • Hades (PS5) - £14.99

Prime Day Xbox deals

With both Xbox consoles being similarly new like the PlayStation 5, we doubt we'll see any major discounts on either of them. The Series S has almost always been available since launch, but now the Series X seems to be more widely available too.

Amazon have had a bundle or two for the Series X, with games like Far Cry 6, so it'll be interesting to see if there's a deal to be had. Otherwise, we can expect to see some solid reductions on third-party titles.

US deals:

  • Forza Horizon 5 (Xbox) - $50.99
  • Halo Infinite (Xbox) - $39.99
  • PowerA Wired controller - $31
  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription (3 months) - $39.99

UK deals:

  • Scarlet Nexus (Xbox) - £19.95
  • Biomutant (Xbox) - £20.57
  • Assassin's Creed Valhalla (Xbox) - currently unavailable
  • PowerA wired controller - £24.99

Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals

Although there have been only a few Switch console bundles over its lifetime, there have been discounts on all three console variants when sold individually. However, Nintendo is also facing stock difficulty.

There is better news for those who already own a Switch console, which is that Amazon has reduced games in the past, including rare discounts on first-party titles.

US deals:

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch) - $48.99
  • Life is Strange: True Colours (Switch) - $39.99
  • PowerA Pikachu wired controller - $15.94

UK deals:

  • New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (Switch) - £36.99
  • Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin (Switch) - £29.97
  • PowerA Animal Crossing wired controller - £14.99

Prime Day 4K TV deals

Discounts days like Prime Day are ideal to save on big ticket items like a new TV. And if you're the owner of a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X console, upgrading to 4K makes more sense, as you'll get to see the full detail of what these beasts can offer.

US deals:

  • Samsung 55" 4K HDR TV with Alexa - $497.99
  • Hisense 43" 4K Android TV with Alexa - $268

UK deals:

  • Samsung 65" QLED Smart TV - £799
  • Hisense 50" TV with Alexa - £289

Prime Day monitor deals

If you're after a smaller screen, perhaps for your desk and one that does double duty for work, a monitor is probably the way to go. Amazon are known to discount monitors throughout the year, so we expect some better deals to crop up on Prime Day, so you can finally upgrade the old one still sitting on your desk.

US deals:

  • LG 24" QHD 75Hz monitor - $196.99
  • Samsung 32" Odyssey G3 165Hz curved monitor - $249.99

UK deals:

  • ASUS TUF 27" QHD 165Hz monitor - £299
  • Dell 24" FHD 75Hz monitor - £124.99

Prime Day gaming laptop deals

With components such as GPUs still in shortage, the best way to play right now besides a console is a gaming laptop. With the benefits of portability, some still allow you to upgrade memory and storage down the line, so you won't be missing out too much by ditching the desktop.

US deals:

  • MSI Stealth 15M gaming laptop with Core i7, RTX 3060 and 144Hz display - $1149.99

UK deals:

  • MSI Pulse GL66 gaming laptop with Core i7 and RTX 3050 Ti - £749

Prime Day SD card deals

Whichever Nintendo Switch console you buy, you'll almost certainly have to buy a micro SD card to keep plenty of games with you. The same goes if you're a lucky owner of a Steam Deck, and almost a necessity if you own an Android smartphone and want to keep a backup of your precious photos and videos.

US deals:

  • Samsung EVO Select 128GB micro SD card - $15.99

UK deals:

  • SanDish 128GB micro SD card - £14.99

Prime Day VR headset deals

VR headsets aren't often reduced, but big shopping days like Prime Day and Black Friday are when retailers add discounts to their lines. We're expecting to see some discounts again this year.

US deals:

  • Oculus Quest 2 128GB - $299

UK deals:

  • Oculus Quest 2 128GB - £299

Prime Day gaming headset deals

An essential piece of kit for any gaming setup is a headset. Not only does it make gaming more immersive, but it's something you'll need when talking to your friends over multiplayer. Prime Day is when accessories are heavily discounted, so we expect to see many models reduced throughout the two day period.

US deals:

  • Razer Kraken gaming headset - $39.99
  • Logitech G335 gaming headset - $47.49
  • HyperX Cloud II gaming headset - $56

UK deals:

  • Logitech G432 gaming headset - £29.99
  • Logitech G PRO X gaming headset - £57.40

Prime Day keyboard deals

One thing that can immediately improve your life, whether it's for gaming, typing for work or both, is a new keyboard. Gaming keyboards are an area Amazon focusses on often with discounts, knowing how keen gamers are to upgrade their setups. Prime Day is sure to hold many new discounts on gaming keyboards from trusted manufacturers.

US deals:

  • Razer Cynosa Chroma keyboard - $39.99
  • Razer Huntsman V2 keyboard - $169.99
  • Logitech G213 Prodigy keyboard - $44.99

UK deals:

  • Corsair K100 keyboard - £179.99

Prime Day gaming mice deals

Gaming mice are a great way to improve your gaming life, whether it's a mouse with extra programmable buttons or one that's light and easy to use. Many items were discounted during last year's Prime Day and we can expect a repeat this year, so if you've been holding off on a purchase for a while, now is the time to go ahead and click buy.

US deals:

  • Corsair Harpoon PRO mouse - $19.99
  • Logitech G502 HERO mouse - $39.49

  • Corsair M65 PRO mouse - £47.99
  • Razer DeathAdder V2 mouse - £39.99

Prime Day tech deals

It's not just gaming stuff that's reduced on Prime Day. We can expect to see Amazon discounting their Kindle and Fire products heavily on Prime Day, enticing people to make the most out of their Prime subscriptions and inclusion of free shows, movies and books.

We can also expect some other deals too, like non-Amazon tablets and smart home devices being reduced, so you can upgrade your other gadgets or give someone in your life an early gift.
