The time has come. Amazon is running its second massive sale of the year that’s exclusively for Prime members. It’s called Amazon Big Deal Days, and it runs October 10-11, dropping prices on all sorts of items. Among those items are video games, consoles, and accessories. So if you’re looking to save cash on all things PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, we have you covered below. We’ve hand-selected all the best deals in the sale.
One caveat: as this is a Prime-exclusive sale, you’ll need a Prime membership to get most of the discounts. And as luck would have it, you can sign up for a one-week membership for just $1.99 right now. That grants you full access to the sale. Now onto the deals.
PS5 October Prime Day Deals
PS5 Game Deals
At this time of year, there’s no reason to pay full price for a PS5 game — at least one that’s been out for a while. While the brand-newest AAA games might not be discounted just yet, pretty much anything that came out in the first half of the year is.
PS5 SSD Storage Deals
The one sure thing about video games is that they get bigger over time. The sheer number of bytes modern triple-A games take up is growing faster than the speedy SSD built into the PS5 can keep up with. If you’re rocking a PS5 without additional storage, you almost certainly find yourself juggling games on your hard drive. Add one of these PS5 SSDs to your console to give yourself more leeway when it comes to choosing which game to play.
Free $10 Amazon Gift Card with $100 PlayStation Gift Card
If you prefer buying your games digitally, this is a great deal. Enter code PSN100 when you buy a $100 PlayStation gift card, and you’ll get a free $10 credit for Amazon.
PlayStation VR 2 Deal
Also on sale right now is the PSVR 2, Sony’s latest immersive headset.

Nintendo Switch October Prime Day Deals
Nintendo Switch Game Deals
First-party Nintendo Switch games only go on sale a few times a year. One of those times is during Amazon Prime Day. So if you’ve had your eye on any of the above games, now’s the time to buy. You won’t likely see a deal this good again until Black Friday.
Nintendo Switch Console Deals
Nearly every year for the Switch’s lifespan, Nintendo has trotted this deal out each fall. That’s cool, though, because it’s a good deal. If you could use a new Switch, you might as well pick up the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle, because it gets you a free digital game and three free months of Nintendo Switch Online. Or, if you’re feeling the deep red of the Mario Red edition Switch OLED, that’s a good buy as well.
Nintendo Switch Storage Deals
Owning a Switch almost certainly means you’ll need more storage at some point. Grab a microSD card on sale to boost the number of digital games you can store on your hybrid console.
Nintendo Switch Accessory Deals
You can also save some cash on third-party controllers for Nintendo Switch.
Xbox October Prime Day Deals
Xbox Game Deals
Some great Xbox Series games are on sale for this October Prime Day — and likely at lower prices than you’ll see other times of year. Pick up whatever’s on your wishlist while it’s on sale.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Deal
Game Pass Ultimate is one of the absolute best deals in gaming. Subscribe directly through Microsoft, and it costs $50.97 for three months. Grab this deal, and you’ll save a cool $10.
Xbox Accessory Deals
While a heap of cheap third-party Xbox controllers are on sale during the Big Deal Days, the first-party ones are really the ones to watch. To that end, you may want to pick up this Elite Series 2 Core Xbox controller while it’s discounted well below MSRP.
Xbox Storage Expansion Deals
One drawback of the Xbox Series X|S (and all the other current-gen consoles, for that matter) is that it doesn’t come with a whole lot of storage, especially considering the size of modern games. Buy one of these bad boys, pop it in, and you can store more games. Nice.
Xbox Console Deals
Amazon has a refurbished Xbox Series X on sale for $399.99, a hundred bucks cheaper than the list price for a new one. You can also save some cash on a new Series X bundled with Diablo IV, or on a Series S.
