Prime Day video game deals - FAQ

Prime Day video game deals

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

As you can probably guess from the name, you will indeed need a Prime membership to access most Prime Day video game deals. The best offers are normally hidden behind that paywall.

The competition always gets in on the action with savings of their own

That isn't to say you're sunk without a subscription though. Offers for non-members are available during the event, and the competition always gets in on the action with savings of their own. In other words, keep an eye on Best Buy, Walmart, and the rest for good reductions - they'll be cutting prices too. 

When will Prime Day video game deals start?

The Prime Day video game deals of 2022 are just around the corner - they're set to land in mid July. In fact, so we've only got a couple of weeks left before the bargains begin appearing. As confirmed by the company itself (opens in new tab), the sale takes place over July 12 to July 13. 

However, don't think that means you won't see Prime Day video game deals before then. We wouldn't be surprised to find offers appearing in the week leading up to the event, so keep your eyes peeled for pre-Prime Day discounts.

We're also getting cool freebies

Even if the discounts are limited to July 12 / 13, it's still a surprising break from tradition. For the most part, Prime Day video game deals take place on a Monday and a Tuesday. At least we still have 48 hours to take advantage of the sales...

We're also getting cool freebies, too - check out Prime Gaming's free games (opens in new tab). Besides the remastered Mass Effect Legendary collection, a few Star Wars games and racing favorites such as GRID Legends are included with the giveaway. 

What to expect from Prime Day video game deals 2022

Here's hoping we get a discount for Elden Ring in this year's Amazon Prime Day video game deals (Image credit: Bandai Namco)

Prime Day doesn't tend to make headlines for its video game deals (the focus is often on Prime Day laptop deals instead), but that isn't to say you can't make a saving if you know where to look. 

Older console games typically make up the bulk of the discounts. While fresh-off-the-press releases rarely get a discount, titles from the last year or so can be steeply reduced in honor of the day. That makes the Amazon sales event a good opportunity to catch up on anything you've missed from the last few months.

In other words, we're confident that the likes of Deathloop - one of 2021's tentpole launches - will receive weighty price cuts this July. Judging by Assassin's Creed Valhalla (which launched in a similar time-frame the year before and was reduced by more than 50% for 2021's Prime Day video game deals), a sizeable discount should be on its way.

We wouldn't be surprised if early 2022 heavy-hitters (Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga) got a price cut during Prime Day either. The same thing happened with April's Returnal last year, and it dropped by almost 30% overall. As such, it's plausible that we'll enjoy a similar reduction on equally new games this year.

It's possible that a major console drop will happen this July

What about Nintendo releases such as Kirby and the Forgotten Land or Pokemon Legends Arceus, then? It's plausible that they'll get a saving, but we wouldn't count on a significant one. That's because Nintendo rarely cuts the price of its games in the months after release (and even beyond that, to be honest), so a modest reduction is the best we can hope for.

Fortunately, accessories like the best gaming headsets are good contenders for a reduction. Razer in particular is excellent at slashing its prices, so be sure to keep an eye out if you want to upgrade your setup. 

Should you expect a PS5 restock or an Xbox Series X restock as well? Maybe. Although we can't say for sure (both machines have been difficult to get hold of for more than a year now), it's possible that a major console drop will happen this July. For starters, the new Xbox is becoming easier to get hold of as time wears on. Additionally, it stays in stock for longer when it does appear. That gives us hope for a Prime Day bonanza.

PlayStation is less clear cut, but we wouldn't be surprised to see stock rear its head during the sale either. Amazon has expressed that its restocks will be reserved for Prime members in the past, and there's no better time to make good on that statement than the Prime Day video game deals.
