Razer BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed 65% Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard | $179.99 $99.99 at Amazon

(opens in new tab)

Roccat Vulcan TKL Pro keyboard | $159.99 $108.30 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $52 - While $100 might seem like a lot for a keyboard, few do it better than Roccat's Vulcan range.

Dell G15 | $930 $879.98 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Save $60 - A superb curved 1080p gaming monitor, this AOC model won't break the bank and this has both qualifiers for that: fast specs, and, with this discount, not a wallet-breaking price.

(opens in new tab)

Samsung G7 gaming monitor (32" 1440p 1000R 1ms 240Hz) | $799.99 $579.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Blockbuster | $21.99 $8.53 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $13.46 - That's a straight-up absurd discount on one of the best party games we've played in years, so don't sleep on this particular Prime Day gaming deal. It's worth every cent. Its sequel, Blockbuster Returns, is also massively discounted.

(opens in new tab)

D&D Starter Set | $19.99 $13.29 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $6 - Inspired by the likes of Stranger Things or Critical Role to start playing D&D?

(opens in new tab)

D&D Essentials Kit | $24.99 $18.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $6 - Enjoy the open-ended nature of games like Skyrim? This is a good D&D beginner's box for you. It offers a little more freedom than other starter sets, but it still has everything you need to play as a newcomer.

(opens in new tab)

Terraforming Mars | $69.95 $47.11 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Save $20 - Looking for a family-friendly RPG? You should consider this delightful option, inspired by the game Barley plays in Pixar's Onward. Besides being more accessible than D&D, it's a lot of quirky fun. That's not far off its lowest ever price, either.

(opens in new tab)

Wingspan | $60 $46.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $13 - You can get this beloved family-friendly board game for a significant discount right now, and because it's normally closer to $60, now's the time to jump in if you'd been tempted by Wingspan.

Xbox

(opens in new tab)

Xbox Series X | £449 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Amazon currently has the Xbox Series X in stock. While other deals may have had around £10 off over the last 18 months, it's still incredibly rare to see the console in stock at all, so definitely worth grabbing if you're still in the market.

(opens in new tab)

F1 22 (Xbox Series X) | £69.99 £57.54 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Save £2 - Sure, you're only saving a measly couple of quid here. But a saving is still a saving, and this party game really does come highly recommended. It has a twist, too; you've got to put down numbered cards in order without talking or gesturing at each other.

(opens in new tab)

Linkee | £22.99 £16.60 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £5 - Linkee is one of our new favorite party games, and you'll get a ton of use of it for your £17. Splitting you all into two groups, it challenges you to figure out the connection between four seemingly random words. It's brilliant.

Prime Day gaming deals - FAQ

Prime Day video game deals

(Image credit: Amazon / From Software / Sony / Nintendo)

When will Prime Day gaming deals start?

We don't have long until the 2022 Prime Day gaming deals get started - we can expect the discounts to arrive in mid-July. Actually, we're just a couple of weeks out; Amazon has now confirmed (opens in new tab) that the bargains will officially take place from Tuesday July 12 to Wednesday July 13. That's a full 48 hours of offers, so strap in.

Although we're happy to know when the Prime Day gaming deals are happening at long last (mainly so we can prepare our wallets), it's something of a surprise. Prime Day normally falls over a Monday and Tuesday, so a mid-week kick-off is unexpected.

Still, at least you can now save the date on your calendars. Which you'll want to do even if it's just to take advantage of free games like Mass Effect: Legendary Edition (opens in new tab), by the way - it's being released free for all Prime members on Prime Gaming.

Do I need a Prime membership for the Prime Day video game deals?

Yes, you will need a Prime membership to get the best Prime Day gaming deals. As this name would suggest, the best offers are normally set aside for Prime subscribers. That means you'll need to sign up (opens in new tab) ahead of the big day if you want to save the max amount of cash.

The competition always offer savings of their own

However, you aren't sunk if you don't have a membership. There are some price-cuts for non-members throughout the sales event, and it's worth pointing out that the competition always offer savings of their own. Best Buy, Walmart, and the rest commonly run discounts on their sites at the same time, and for the most part, they're actually good.

What to expect from Prime Day gaming deals 2022

Elden Ring

Elden Ring will hopefully be amongst this year's best Prime Day  gaming deals (Image credit: FromSoftware)

While Prime Day tends to be more focused on laptops, Kindles, and Alexa devices, its gaming deals can be pretty good if you keep your eyes peeled. Namely, Prime Day video game deals make up the bulk of the discounts and allow you to catch up on anything you've missed for less. A great example is one of 2021's biggest releases, Deathloop. If previous years are anything to go by (where games that launched during a similar time-frame in 2020, such as Assassin's Creed Valhalla, got a massive discount of more than 50% for 2021's Prime Day gaming deals), it'll drop by a decent amount. 

2022's big names should enjoy a fair reduction too. Last year's price cuts on early 2021 games like Returnal (which dropped by almost 30%) indicate that we can expect at least $20 off tentpole releases including Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Nintendo Switch games could also join the party via Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals, but because the company is notoriously reluctant to discount new games, we wouldn't count on it. Judging by 2021, we suspect console bundles will get the lion's share of attention instead.

It's certainly plausible that a console drop will occur this July

On a similar note, we expect that the best gaming headsets (and other accessories ranging from keyboards to mice) will get major price cuts as well. For instance, 2021 saw the SteelSeries Arctis 5 RGB Wired headset drop from $99 to $66 during Amazon's Prime Day PS5 deals. Because Razer always comes out strong with Prime Day gaming deals on its latest headsets, we'd expect its entry-level Razer BlackShark V2 X to revisit its Black Friday low of $34.99.

Equally, console storage got a boon of offers - including a 22% drop for the WD My Passport external HDD - in 2021's Prime Day Xbox Series X deals. That means you should keep an eye out for savings on top picks from the best PS5 accessories and the best Xbox Series X accessories this time around, with a particular focus on SSDs now that the PS5 can use them. Namely, the Seagate Firecuda 530 has been steadily dropping in cost all year so could return to or better its lowest ever price of $189.99 for 2022's Prime Day gaming deals.

Will you be able to take advantage of a PS5 restock or an Xbox Series X restock, though? It's certainly possible. Despite the difficulty of getting either machine since launch, the Xbox is becoming easier to find and PlayStation's latest upgrade seems to be enjoying more regular drops these days. With that in mind, it's certainly plausible that a console drop will occur this July.

We're more certain of savings for Prime Day board games. Everything from party distractions to the best board games of yesteryear were slashed in price during 2021, including the famously expensive Twilight Imperium (it tumbled to $85). As such, keep a close eye on usually-expensive hobby games; these get the most worthwhile reductions.


Searching for present inspiration ahead of the sale? Don't miss our guide to the best gifts for gamers. And if you're on the lookout for something you can enjoy with family and friends, these board games for adults and board games for 2 players should hit the spot.
