It should be game on, when it comes to gaming discounts this Amazon Prime Day

The best Amazon Prime Day gaming deals (2020): what to expect
22 September 2020

Woh, hang on: where the hell is Amazon Prime Day 2020? Don't worry, you haven't missed it - the event never actually took place in its usually July slot but Amazon has revealed that it is actually happening

If myriad rumours are to be believed, Amazon Prime Day 2020 could well be arriving soon, with many pointing to a mid-October event.

Until Amazon announces something officially, we look back to the gaming bargains that took place last year.

We know you are ready for some sweet gaming deals and the good news is that Amazon Prime Day almost always offers discounts for games, consoles and accessories. It's a great time to get tooled-up, whether you want to make your weekends more fun or prep for Christmas shopping ultra-early.

And this year will include even more gaming bargains as Xbox One, PS4 and the like is being superseded. So if you don't mind having an older console, we predict them to go rapidly down in price.

And if you already own a console and a bunch of games, then you might want to look out for bargains when it comes to accessories.

Until then, here are some gift guides for you and below are some of the Amazon Prime Day gaming bargains we saw last year.
