EOFY 2020 gaming deals in Australia

(Image credit: Sony)

June is a special time in Australia, because it's the beginning of a new financial year. Actually, scratch that: who cares about new financial years? What we care about is tax returns, and retailers know we like to spend our tax returns, just as much as they like to dispense of as much stock as possible. End-of-financial-year sales are rolling out and will continue to do so throughout the month of June, so it's definitely worth keeping your ears to ground. Or letting us do it for you.

While COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are slowly relaxing in Australia, the bargains available through online retailers will be many and varied. The sales normally occur between June 1 and June 30, unless you're Amazon, which kicked off its Mid-Year Sale a week early, which is basically an end-of-financial-year sale in all but name. 

We'll be keeping this page updated throughout June whenever something good pops up.

Without further ado:

Nintendo Switch consoles

Nintendo Switch Neon | AU$439
The mainline Switch is back in stock, and it's AU$31 cheaper than the usual RRP - a good time to bite if you're suffering from the console's rarity. Via Amazon.View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite | AU$294 (usually AU$329.95)
The regular Nintendo Switch console may still be light on the ground, but the Lite version is available, with a nice AU$35 trimmed off the top. Available in various colours. Via Amazon.View Deal

Nintendo Switch games

Darksiders Genesis | AU$39 (usually AU$59.95)
A nice saving on this rather excellent ARPG set in the Darksiders universe. Boasts local cooperative play and a helluva lot of loot. Via Amazon.View Deal

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy | AU$19 (usually AU$69.95)
If you're a fan of SNK's lavishly illustrated fighting games, this is a good title to have on hand. Via Amazon.

Bayonetta 2 | AU$59 (usually AU$89.95)
Bayonetta 2 alone for this price is great, but this package also bundles a download code for the first Bayonetta. Via Amazon.View Deal

PS4 games

Resident Evil 3 | AU$59 (usually AU$99.95)
A nice 40 percent off the latest Resident Evil stroll in the park, pretty good considering it's only been out a couple of months. Via Amazon.View Deal

Ghost Recon Breakpoint | AU$24 (usually AU$50)
It may not have scored particularly well at launch, but Ubisoft has rolled out a big update to Breakpoint that finetunes some of the tactical aspects of the game. Via Amazon.View Deal

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order | AU$35 (usually AU$99)
A nice steep discount on last year's big Star Wars adventure, which scored a tidy four stars in our review. Via Amazon.View Deal

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey | AU$22 (usually AU$50)
A bit over twenty bucks for a 100+ hour game is undeniably good value, and you can meet Socrates in it too. Via Amazon.View Deal

Red Dead Redemption 2 | AU$38 (usually AU$70)
Rockstar's latest epic will keep you busy for hundreds of hours, especially if you get into the online component. Via Amazon.View Deal

Doom Eternal | AU$49 (usually AU$99)
This game really ups the ante when it comes to speed and intensity in first person shooters. Don't give up at the Marauder. Via Amazon.View Deal

Death Stranding | AU$34 (usually AU$99.95)
Hideo Kojima's audacious trekking adventure might seem like a risky proposition at full price, but when it's this heavily discounted it's probably worth taking the chance (also: it's really good). Via Amazon.View Deal

Spider-Man | AU$19
Just under twenty bucks for this silky-smooth open world superhero adventure, which was one of the best games of 2018. Via Amazon.View Deal

God of War | AU$16 (usually $24.95)
Sony's acclaimed reboot turns Kratos into the best dad ever. It's also a gorgeous open world adventure that'll go down as one of the classics of the PS4 generation. Via Amazon.View Deal

Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition | AU$16 (usually $24.95)
Aloy's stirring sandbox adventure is likely to get a sequel for PS5, so if you've yet to pump 100+ hours into this PS4 classic, now's a better time than ever to get started. Via Amazon.View Deal

Need for Speed Payback | AU$19 (usually AU$30)
Is this one of the bad or good Need for Speed games? It's among the better of the Ghost Games instalments, with its "brilliant Fast and Furious-esque storyline" and "stunning open world". Via Amazon.View Deal

Prey | AU$14.95
From the acclaimed creators of the Dishonored series comes this excellently spooky sci-fi immersive sim. Watch out for the mimics. Via Amazon.View Deal

In addition to the above, all of the following games are also AU$16 on Amazon for a limited time.

Gran Turismo Sport
The Last of Us Remastered
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
Bloodborne
Nioh

PS4 Accessories

PlayStation VR with camera and VR Worlds | AU$259 (usually AU$419.95)
This is probably the best way to get into VR if you own a PS4. Better still, this headset will be compatible with PS5 when it releases later this year. Via Amazon.View Deal

PlayStation DualShock 4 Controller | AU$78 (usually AU$89.95)
It may not be the cheapest DualShock 4 you've ever seen, but buying one on Amazon at the moment entitles you to a free game among Sony's PlayStation Hits collection. Just add this and the game to your checkout, and the game price will be deducted. Via Amazon.

Xbox One consoles

Xbox One X | AU$440 (usually AU$549)
Save AU$109 on what is currently (but not for much longer!) the most powerful console on the market. Via Amazon.View Deal

Xbox One games

Crackdown 3 | AU$10 (usually AU$79)
This is a very decent price for a blockbuster game released just last year. If it's a bit of mindless fun you need, this is a good game to play while listening to podcasts. Via Amazon.View Deal

Resident Evil 3 | AU$59 (usually AU$99.95)
The latest Capcom nightmare only released a couple of months ago, so this is a decent 40 percent price unless you want to wait. Via Amazon.

Accessories

Razer Kraken X gaming headset | AU$79 (usually AU$99)
A nice AU$20 saving on this platform agnostic set of cans, which we reviewed quite favourable last month. Via Mighty Ape.View Deal
