Between the ongoing Steam Summer Sale and now Amazon Prime Day, it’s a great time to save on a wide swath of video games for both consoles and PC alike. Whether you play games on Sony’s PlayStation 5, the Nintendo Switch, Microsoft’s Xbox Series X / S, or a Windows PC, gaming can be an expensive hobby — especially with more and more games launching at the higher $69.99 pricing tier. But, thankfully, there are still a number of worthwhile gaming deals available to snag before Prime Day officially comes to a close in just a few hours.

Here, we’ll highlight and list out all the exceptional gaming deals we can find this Prime Day — on both the games themselves and the accessories that accompany them. From headsets and controllers to monitors and related tech for streaming on Twitch or YouTube, we got it all.

It uses an Xbox-style layout for its sticks and face buttons, and sports two programmable rear buttons.

  • And if you want all that customizability plus all the RGB lighting that Razer is known for, the Wolverine V2 Chroma Pro wired controller for Xbox / PC is down to $89.99 ($60 off) $109 ($41 off) at Amazon. Again, it’s not the best value, but it’s a unique controller that’s currently selling for its best price ever.

Try Hori’s Split Pad Comfort, which replaces the stock Joy-Cons with larger — but not gigantic — grips that are comfier to hold during longer sessions. Amazon is selling the Split Pad Comfort in red for $40.99 ($9 off), gray and yellow for $41.99 ($8 off), or with a Pokémon design depicting either Pikachu for $47.99 ($12 off) or Gengar for $51.99 ($8 off).
