Prime Day Switch Game Deals

For Nintendo Switch owners, Prime Day always offers a chance to pick up exclusive games that don’t tend to receive discounts very often. Typically, we see Switch exclusives for $30 to $40, and we could even see those type of deals on newer releases such as Nintendo Switch Sports, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Ahead of Prime Day, though, there are already some stellar deals on Switch console exclusives, including a handful for around that magic $40 price point.

PowerA Enhanced Wireless Controllers (Switch)

Up to $15 off select models

PowerA’s line of wireless controllers for Switch are discounted by up to $15 right now, depending on the model. Many of the controllers in the line have designs inspired by iconic Nintendo franchises. This controller is a solid alternative for the Switch Pro controller if you’re shopping on a budget, as it retains a similar form factor while also adding mappable back triggers.

NexiGo GripCon

$45 ($60)

NexiGo’s GripCon Switch controller is a wonderful replacement for Switch Joy-Con in handheld mode. It gives the Nintendo Switch a far more ergonomic form factor and adds a normal D-pad as well as larger analog sticks and triggers. This model is compatible with both the Switch OLED and regular Switch.

Xbox Wireless Controller

$49 ($60)

Official Microsoft Xbox controllers are already on sale for $10 off. We expect all color schemes to be discounted during Prime Day, too.

Razer V2 Chroma Xbox Controller

$130 ($150)

If you’re in the market for a competitive Xbox controller, the Razer V2 Chroma is a great option. It has superb ergonomics, mappable back paddles, and arguably the best face buttons and triggers you can find on a controller. They are designed to mimic the feel and sound of clicking a mouse. The only downside is that the V2 Chroma can only be used with a wired connection. That said, the cord is lengthy and durable and the controller is simply wonderful for Xbox and PC gaming.

SteelSeries Arctis 7P+

$140 ($170)

The SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ is our pick for the best gaming headset for PS5. It boasts superb audio and is incredibly comfortable. You can’t go wrong with this headset for PlayStation or PC.

Razer BlackShark V2 Pro

$140 ($180)

Razer’s BlackShark V2 Pro is another awesome PlayStation and PC wireless gaming headset. It boasts THX 7.1 surround sound and runs for 24 hours on a full charge. The memory foam ear cushions are very comfy and it has stellar ergonomics.

Razer Kaira

$80 ($100)

Xbox users should check out the Razer Kaira, a wireless headset that doesn’t require a dongle and has impressive audio and ergonomics for the price.

Razer Kaira Pro

$130 ($200)

The Kaira Pro is a step up from the regular Kaira, and it’s on sale for an even larger discount for PlayStation and Xbox. The stylish black and white PlayStation version and the Halo Infinite-themed model for Xbox are both only $130 right now.

Amazon Luna Controller

Amazon’s Luna controller is on sale for $40 for Prime members. Since it normally retails for $70, this is a great deal. The Luna controller is designed for Amazon’s cloud game streaming service of the same name. If you are a Prime member, you actually have access to a rotating batch of cloud streaming games each month. July’s offerings include Mega Man 11, Overcooked 2, and more. But even if you don’t care about cloud streaming, the Luna controller is a solid pick for PC gaming in general. It has a similar form factor and control layout as the Switch Pro controller, though it does feel a tad more premium than the Switch controller.

4K Fire TVs

Amazon has already marked down a bunch of 4K TVs ahead of Prime Day. The focus so far has been on Smart Fire TVs, which feature the Prime TV interface that makes it easy to access streaming apps such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Prime Video, and HBO Max.

There are some really budget-friendly deals in Amazon’s early Prime Day TV sale. Toshiba’s M550 series is seeing the biggest discount from a dollar perspective. You can grab a 75-inch 4K Fire TV for only $700, which means you’re saving a whopping $700 on the list price. If you don’t need a TV that large, the 65-inch is only $500, and the 55-inch is just $350.
