- This year’s Amazon Prime Day is bound to be full of awesome deals on gaming devices, from consoles to laptops and accessories — especially with Xbox Series X and PS5 coming for the holidays.
- It’s likely that Amazon and partners will have excess stock in both Xbox One and PS4 games and consoles that they would like to clear out before the next consoles launch. That’s a ripe time for deals.
- Since Prime Day 2020 deals haven’t been released yet, here are some other ways you can save: shop online sales going on today, find coupons for your favorite stores, and browse all the latest deals here.
- Check out all the Amazon Prime Day 2020 coverage here.
Amazon Prime Day last year slung around some excellent deals on gaming products for both consoles and PC, and we expect Prime Day 2020 to be no different if not even better. This is because both Microsoft and Sony are releasing their new consoles this year, likely just before the holidays.
An official date has not been announced yet for this year’s Prime Day, but it’s worthwhile to prepare how you’d like to spend your hard-earned cash as well in advance as possible — especially considering how expensive gaming can get.
Below, we’ve listed the products that we most expect to see discounts for Prime Day 2020, as well as whether there are any deals available now and how close they are to pricing from Prime Day last year.
With that said, gaming products have been in especially high demand this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, leading to low stock on video game consoles. Other high-end gaming items, like laptops and monitors, have been flying off the shelves too. As a result, some of the items included below are currently out of stock and a few products are being sold for higher prices than usual. We’ve noted these details when appropriate.
Updated on 06/17/2020 by Kevin Webb: This article has been updated with current pricing and stock details for the included products.
Gaming console deals we expect to see on Prime Day 2020
Xbox One S Bundle, currently sold out (originally $249.99) [Was $199.99 on Prime Day last year]
Last year an Xbox One S All-Digital Edition bundle was available for $200 on Prime Day but the console has been discontinued with the Xbox Series X on the horizon. Still, you can expect an Xbox One S bundle to drop to a similar price this year as the gaming business makes way for next-gen consoles later this year.
PlayStation 4 Slim (1TB) Only On PlayStation Bundle, currently sold out (originally $299.99)
If you’re more of a PlayStation fan, then this bundle gets you started in a serious way. This bundle, which wasn’t available for Prime Day last year, includes digital copies of three hit PlayStation 4 exclusives — “God of War,” “Horizon: Zero Dawn,” and “The Last of Us Remastered.” With PS5 looming on the horizon, we’re anticipating a PS4 Pro bundle to return for Prime Day 2020 even, though overall stock of the PlayStation 4 Pro is low.
Sony PlayStation Plus 12-month membership, $41.99 (originally $59.99) [Was just $39.99 on Prime Day last year]
To play online with your PS4 or PS4 Pro, you need a subscription to the PlayStation Plus service, which also features discounts and free game downloads. A year’s membership is now on sale for just $42, which is almost as cheap as last year’s Prime Day deal. We expect an even better discount for Prime Day 2020.
Gaming laptop deals we expect to see on Prime Day 2020
Razer Blade 15 (Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti), currently sold out (originally $1,599.99) [Was just $1,364.11 on Prime Day last year]
The Razer Blade is one of the thinnest and most portable gaming laptops out there, but thankfully that doesn’t mean that it sacrifices on performance. An older model with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card was last year’s big Razer deal, so you know we should see the latest model sporting GTX 1660 Ti graphics (listed above) at a discount.
Asus ROG Zephyrus S (Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070) currently sold out (originally $1,799) [Was just $1,249.99 on Prime Day last year]
Asus has been building awesome laptops in its ROG line for some time now, and the ROG Zephyrus S is no exception to that rule. This model boasts an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, and it was over $500 off last year, which is pretty impressive for a laptop this powerful. Hopefully we see models with Nvidia RTX graphics see similar discounts this time around.
Asus FX504 (Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce GTX1050 Ti), $898.00 (originally $999.99) [Was $749.00 on Prime Day last year]
Not everyone has $1,000 to spend on a gaming laptop, but thankfully those that have a more limited budget still have some capable mobile PC gaming options – like the Asus FX504 gaming laptop, which has an Intel Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX1050 Ti graphics card. It was available for $749 on Prime Day last year, which is a pretty impressive price. Perhaps it will go even lower for Prime Day 2020.
MSI GS75 Stealth (17.3-inch with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080), currently sold out (originally $2,799.00) [Was just $2,119.18 on Prime Day last year]
MSI has proved to be another breakout gaming PC maker over the past few years. The MSI GS75 Stealth offers better performance than almost any other laptop, thanks to its Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card, which is an absolute beast. The laptop was a hefty $644.45 off last year, which is an incredible deal, so hopefully we’ll see a similar come down in price this year.
Gaming desktop deals we expect to see on Prime Day 2020
HP Pavilion (AMD Ryzen 5 AMD Radeon RX 580), $846.88 (originally $769.99) [Was $479.99 on Prime Day last year]
Many gamers prefer a desktop for their expansion capabilities. This HP Pavilion runs off an AMD Ryzen 5 graphics card, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. It’s not the most powerful, but it will serve casual gamers well. Expect to see this affordable gaming PC become even more affordable come Prime Day 2020.
Gaming monitor deals we expect to see on Prime Day 2020
Acer KG241Q bmiix (Full HD), $139.99 (originally $139.99) [Was just $119.99 on Prime Day last year]
Acer has also been developing awesome monitors for some time, and the Acer KG241Q is an excellent display for the money, coming in at 23.6 inches and a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080, which isn’t bad given the fact that this monitor is only a little over $100. Expect to see this one come back down in price for Prime Day 2020.
LG 27GL650F-B (Full HD), $299.99 (originally $349.99) [Was just $249.99 on Prime Day last year]
If you want a solid, reliable 27-inch monitor, then the LG 27GL650F is an excellent choice. The monitor has a Full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate, plus it supports visual standards like HDR10. The monitor may not be the fanciest out there, but given it’s Prime Day price history and the specs on offer, it’s bound to be a sweet deal.
Alienware 1900R (34.1-inch curved WQHD), currently sold out (originally $1,099.99) [Was $849.99 on Prime Day last year]
Many out there will have been waiting for that stellar deal to save some money on an ultra-high-end device, in which case we recommend checking out the Alienware 1900R, which has a high 3,440 x 1,440 resolution, plus a 120-Hz refresh rate and a 21:9 aspect ratio. The monitor is easily one of the best in its price range.
AOC 15.6-inch USB-C powered portable gaming monitor, $207.38 (originally $199.99) [Was just $139.99 on Prime Day last year]
Some gamers out there could likely benefit from a decent portable monitor, and portable monitors have been getting better and better over the years. Like, for example, this 15.6-inch portable display from AOC, which has a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution and a USB-C port to connect to your device. We’re thinking this one will come down again for Prime Day 2020.
Gaming headset deals we expect to see on Prime Day 2020
HyperX Cloud Stinger, $46.99 (originally $49.99) [Was just $39.99 on Prime Day last year]
HyperX has a history of delivering high-quality headsets at affordable prices, and the Cloud Stinger is no exception. The headset is built with super-comfortable memory foam and will work perfectly with any gaming console, including the Nintendo Switch or your smartphone.
SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless, $149.99 (originally $149.99) [Was just $99.99 on Prime Day last year]
SteelSeries is arguably one of the top companies in the gaming headset world, and the Arctis 7 is one of the best the company has to offer, especially for the price. The SteelSeries Arctis 7 offers an incredibly comfortable design, along with a natural sound quality that puts an emphasis where it counts in the frequency range, making for an immersive gaming experience.
HyperX Cloud II, $99.99 (originally $99.99) [Was just $69.99 on Prime Day last year]
Perhaps you want a HyperX headset that’s a little better than the Cloud Stinger, in which case we recommend checking out HyperX’s Cloud II. This headset is more comfortable and sounds a little better than the less expensive HyperX headsets on offer, plus it offers a comfortable design and is built with premium materials. The headset was $30 off last year, and that could definitely happen again in 2020.
Razer Kraken Tournament Edition, $73.99 (originally $99.99) [Was just $61.99 on Prime Day last year]
Razer has seriously stepped up its game over the past few years, and the Kraken Tournament Edition is a fine example of that. The headset has a nice design, and supports virtual 7.1 surround sound, making for a much more immersive gaming experience than what you would otherwise get. We hope for a similar deal during Prime Day 2020.
Razer Nari Wireless, currently sold out (originally $149.99) [Was $119.99 on Prime Day last year]
The Razer Nari is even better than other Razer headsets, thanks to its comfortable design with plenty of padding, and solid sound quality. The device has a retractable microphone and will work perfectly fine with your computer, PS4, or Xbox One.
Razer Nari Ultimate Wireless, $183.56 (originally $199.99) [Was $184.27 on Prime Day last year]
If you want an even bigger step-up in the Razer lineup, then the Nari Ultimate is worth considering. This headset has even better padding, which is cooling-gel infused, meaning that you should be able to game for hours before the headset gets too warm. The headset is even wireless, which should make for a more convenient gaming experience. Better yet, the headset is even cheaper now than it was on Prime Day last year.
Gaming accessory deals we expect to see on Prime Day 2020
Razer Naga Trinity Gaming Mouse, $99.99 (originally $99.99) [Was just $54.99 on Prime Day last year]
Razer’s gaming device peripherals have been getting better and better, and the Razer Naga Trinity gaming mouse is an excellent accessory. The mouse offers a 16,000-dpi sensor for sharper precision, along with interchangeable button configurations with 2, 7, and 12 button options.
Logitech G602 Wireless, $56.99 (originally $79.99) [Was just $24.99 on Prime Day last year]
Logitech is another company that has been stepping things up when it comes to gaming peripherals, and the Logitech G602 is an excellent example of that. The device offers a ton of convenient features, including wireless connectivity, and a whopping 11 programmable buttons – which should make for highly customizable gameplay, with all controls at your fingers.
HyperX Alloy FPS RGB, $109.99 (originally $109.99) [Was just $79.99 on Prime Day last year]
HyperX makes terrific gaming keyboards, including the HyperX Alloy FPS RGB. This keyboard offers mechanical keys, and, as you might expect, RGB lighting — it’s not a gaming keyboard unless it lights up. If this goes back down to just $80 like it was for Prime Day last year, this will be the gaming keyboard deal to beat in 2020.
Corsair K95 RGB Platinum, $183.71 (originally $199.99) [Was $172.00 on Prime Day last year]
The K95 is one of Corsair’s best gaming keyboards, and it has a lot to offer. For starters, the device has mechanical keys, and they’re known on this keyboard for their punchy feel. The keyboard also has six programmable keys, as well as media controls and RGB backlighting, which are nice touches. While the keyboard is usually costly at $200, it’s on sale right now for around $184. A better deal is expected on Prime Day 2020.
Corsair K70 MK2 Rapidfire gaming keyboard, $111.99 (originally $159.99) [Was $89.99 on Prime Day last year]
If you want the sharp feeling of the Corsair K95 but not the high price tag, then the Corsair K70 is worth checking out. The keyboard also offers great media controls and RGB lighting, as well as mechanical keys, however, they perhaps won’t feel quite as nice as the more expensive keys on the K95.
