Best Amazon Prime Day 2018 Gaming Deals For PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, And 3DS

We’ve entered the second day of Amazon Prime Day for 2018, and that means there are numerous deals for you to peruse. In the US, the sale started out by taking down Amazon’s website for many users, though even with those issues persisting for some, you can still successfully head directly to a product page to make a purchase. Of course, to do so, you’ll need an Amazon Prime membership–and you can sign up for a free trial if you don’t already have one. There’s still a fair amount of time left to take advantage of the sales on offer, and there may still be some to come that we don’t yet know about.

Prime Day runs until midnight on the night of Tuesday, July 17 (3 AM ET). Some deals will be far more limited than that for one reason or another–some will only run for a few hours, while others will sell out, as we saw with a nice Nintendo Switch bundle–although that has since come back in stock, and it remains one of the best gaming deals from the sale. All of this makes it difficult to secure the best deals, but we’re rounding up all of the top offers we’ve found for you below. We’ll update this throughout the rest of Tuesday as more deals become available.

If you’re looking for something more specific, you can also hit the links at the bottom of this story for our coverage of more specifics platforms and categories. We’ve got roundups of the best deals on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch that we’ll also continue to update and cover more than what you see below, including a variety of Lightning Deals–but don’t expect a ton for Switch unless things change dramatically from the first few hours of Prime Day.

No matter what ends up going on sale, Prime members can still get a bunch of free PC games through Twitch Prime, which is among the perks you receive with an Amazon Prime membership. Best of all, those games are yours to keep–just make sure to claim them while they’re available. If you’re looking for other things, our sister site CNET also has roundups for things like the best streaming video/TV deals, while Chowhound has the best kitchenware and ZDNet has news on Huawei phone and wearable discounts.

Hardware, Consoles, And Accessories

Deals on specific consoles have been few and far between at this point, but for those still in the market for a 3DS, the nostalgia-inducing SNES edition of the New 3DS XL is available with a free copy of Super Mario Kart for $150. There’s also a nice Xbox One bundle with a free copy of Rare Replay for $230, along with various accessories for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and 3DS/2DS. And a Switch bundle that had sold out is now back in stock–you get a Nintendo Switch, 64 GB microSDXC card, and a $20 Eshop credit for the system’s standard price of $300.
