Amazon’s annual Prime Day is back with a vengeance! Originally starting in 2015, Prime Day has become synonymous with site-wide savings and deals offered through the online shopping giant. Items in every department, from gardening supplies to the latest electronics, receive a temporary markdown, and the size and volume of these markdowns rival other big shopping events like Black Friday. There’s a catch, however. Prime Day savings are reserved for people who subscribe to Amazon’s Prime membership, making that Prime membership all the more appealing. Especially if you’re a gamer looking to save a few bucks on software and peripheries.
This year, a slew of first party Nintendo games are being offered 33% off of their standard retail price. Originally priced at $59.99, you can pick up The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Pokemon: Let's Go (both Pikachu and Eevee versions) for $39.99. Fire Emblem: Three Houses received a score of 89/100 on Metacritic and ranked #4 in their list of best Nintendo Switch games of 2019. And although The Legend of Zelda: BotW is over three years old, it’s still a massive and fun game to play on the system. Anyone who hasn’t bought the game yet should do so and complete it now before its highly anticipated sequel comes out.
A select number of popular Sony Playstation titles are also getting a price drop for Prime Day. Controversial best seller The Last of Us Part II is $20 cheaper from its original price at $39.99. And Capcom’s beloved zombie horror sequel Resident Evil 3 is getting a 17% markdown to $49.99.
Any shoppers who already have these games in their collection may prefer to browse Prime Day’s gaming related equipment instead. The price of the BestOffice PC Gaming Chair has been cut from $99.99 to $72.50. The chair has a 4-star review average after 13,000+ consumer reviews.
Prime Day sales last from October 13th to October 14th 11:59pm PST, so check out these deals and more while you can!
