There are some fantastic video game deals available right now on Amazon for all console platforms which includes the Nintendo Switch as well. The best part about the available deals is that you don’t need to be an Amazon Prime member to be eligible for the game deals unlike many other discounts on Amazon.
When it comes to deals and discounts, Amazon usually always has something on sale/discount. Now that the Amazon also has its Prime membership, members get exclusive discounts all the time, so non-prime members usually don’t get much or not as great deals as the members. Even though there are many deals to go through, game deals are a rare occurrence on Amazon. This is because the site matches popular game retailers such as Gamestop and charges the standard $60 for games and thus hardly offers any discounts or deals. However, there are some pretty good deals out there right now for Xbox One, Ps4 and Nintendo Switch for which you don’t even need to be a prime member.
Ps4 and Xbox One games
There are a few game deals which are available for both their Ps4 and Xbox versions. A spinoff from the Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Survive, despite being only out for a few months is available for just $15 on Amazon right now. If you’ve been holding off to buy the game when it got cheaper, now is the right time to buy it. Similarly, Burnout Paradise Remastered, an open world racing game is also available for $30 right now, a 25% discount despite being out for only a few months.
A more notable name that’s available for a discounted price would be Final Fantasy XV. Base game aside, the game has a Royal Edition which comes with the game’s season pass, new bosses, new gear and much more. The game’s Royal edition is available for $40, a great deal considering the base game is usually sold for $60.
If you’ve played Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, then you might remember how great that game was. It even got a Game of the Year edition back in the day. Now its sequel, Shadow of War is also pretty good as one would expect, and a game like that is available right now for only $31 on Amazon. Similarly, the latest installment to the Assassins Creed game series, Assassins Creed Origins is also available at a cheaper price. Assasins Creed Origins only came out a few months ago and was highly rated by critics. It’s regarded as one of the best Assasins Creed games out there, and just like Shadow of War, it’s available for only $30 right now.
The highly acclaimed Life Is Strange is also on sale as Life Is Strange: Before the Storm is available for just $20. The Limited Edition is also available for just $30 which gets you a few extra things that the standard doesn’t come with. The extras include a bonus episode, a mixtape mode that lets you create your own playlist/piece from a soundtrack and an outfit pack. It’s a pretty good deal for the Limited Edition that costs a lot less than it should.
Apart from the games that exist on both consoles, exclusive games are also up for grabs. Although the Xbox One isn’t known for many exclusives, it still has a few decent ones out there which are now up for grabs for lower prices. You can get Sea of Thieves, which just came out a few weeks ago, for below $50 ( disc only, the online code will cost full retail price).
Microsoft’s highly popular racing game Forza Horizon 3 is also up for grabs for around $39. However, the best Forza Motorsport game so far has to be the latest one in the franchise, Forza Motorsport 7. The game is far more realistic than Horizon 3 and is regarded as one of the best racing games out there. The game is up for grabs for only $43 right now, well worth it for this game.
Nintendo Switch games
The sale isn’t limited to just Ps4 and Xbox One as Switch owners also get a few titles for prices lower than usual. People on Nintendo Switch can get Super Mario Odyssey for $49. If you’re a fan of Anime, more specifically Dragon Ball Z, then you’ll be happy to find out that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is also on sale for just $60. If you liked the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse game, then this one is even better, worth checking out.
If you’ve always been an open-world game fan and want to relive one of the old classics, then The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is your best bet. The game is currently on sale right now for Nintendo Switch for $51. There’s not much to say about this game except that it’s one of the best games ever made. The price tag is nothing compared to the enjoyment one can get out of playing this game. It’s a must buy if you haven’t played it yet.
Although Xbox hasn’t had many notable exclusives over the past two years, PlayStation has had a lot of them. There are many names that come to mind when thinking about great PS exclusives and it’s only fair that since a lot of them are getting old now, they’d go on sale. One of the exclusives on sale is Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition, which is going for just $40 right now, it’s regarded as one of the best PS exclusives out there.
There are many other notable exclusives included in the sale as well. Shadow of the Colossus is also on sale for just $30. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is also on sale but it’s not just the base game that’s on sale, the Steelbook Brawler Edition of the game is on sale for $35. There’s even a PSVR game that’s on sale. The Inpatient is a horror game made by the same people that are responsible for Until Dawn, so expect great things from this game. The game’s available for only $20 right now, it doesn’t get better than that for PSVR Headset users, a good, cheap horror game.
It’s rare that Amazon has a sale going on right now for video games, but all the video game available are really good and are worth picking up. The sale is not bad at all and the best part is that non-Prime members have access to the sale as well. Check out all the deals on Amazon.
