After being delayed several months due to COVID-19, Amazon Prime Day 2020 is still happening, and it’s live right now on Amazon’s website with thousands of deals available, with more to come over the next 48 hours. As usual, you’ll need a Prime membership to shop the sale, and a 30-day free trial is available.

Despite happening later than usual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Day is bringing steep discounts on some of the best games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Prime Day is also an excellent opportunity to snag consoles and PC hardware at a discount, and you’ll also find sweet deals on gaming accessories, merch, Blu-rays, collectibles, and practically anything on your wish list.

If you’re looking to shop in the Prime Day sale, we’ve got you covered. Below, we’ve rounded up the very best deals so far and everything else you need to know. Keep in mind you’ll need to be logged in to see Prime Day prices. On a listing, look for the blue Prime Day Deal label–your price at checkout will be indicated to the right of it. Other retailers are also holding anti-Prime Day sales this week. We’ve included some of those deals below (when those prices aren’t available at Amazon).

Switch Online 12-months + 128GB microSD card

$40 (was $70)

Nintendo Switch Online gives its users access to a huge library of retro games from the NES and SNES catalogues as well as free games and trials. You’ll also need it if you want to play online multiplayer on the Switch. Amazon has a great deal right now that bundles 12-months of Nintendo Switch Online with a 128GB microSD card.

The Last of Us Part II

$40 (was $60)

The Last of Us Part II is one of the PS4’s biggest games of 2020, and since its launch in June, we haven’t seen it on sale much. Amazon currently has Naughty Dog’s latest for $40, down from $60, so now’s a great time to pick it up and play through Ellie’s journey.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection

$35 (was $60)

Mortal Kombat 11 was one of the best fighting games of 2019, touting a great online multiplayer community, engaging single-player story mode, and more. This year saw the release of the Aftermath expansion, which added three new DLC characters–Shang Tsung, Fujin, and Robocop–as well as a mini-campaign that details the events after the main game’s credits. With Kombat Pack 2 just announced, it’s a great time to jump into MK11.

Corsair K95 RGB Platinum gaming keyboard

$115 (was $200)

Corsair is one of the best keyboard makers out there, and right now, you can snag the excellent K95 RGB Platinum gaming keyboard for only $115.

Best tips for Amazon Prime Day

To get the most out of Prime Day, it’s best to know exactly what you’re shopping for. Otherwise, it’s easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole of Amazon’s endless lineup of deals. While Black Friday offers you a lot of time to plan for the exact deals you want to take advantage of, Prime Day deals are generally kept secret until the event kicks off, so you’ll want to be ready at your computer that day to snag anything you want. The best deals are sure to sell out quickly.

There are different types of Prime Day deals to be aware of, and understanding what these are can help your planning. Prime Day really kicks off about a week beforehand with early access or countdown deals. Throughout the event, you’ll also see spotlight deals–these run for 24 hours and can take place during the lead-up to Prime Day as well as the event itself. Lightning deals tend to be some of the best discounts of Prime Day, but these are limited-time, limited-stock items that will sell out fast. The best way to keep up with those is through the Amazon app on your phone as well as the upcoming deals page on Amazon. Hit “watch this deal” to get notified when it starts. Finally, there will be thousands of Prime Day-exclusive deals that run the entire duration of Prime Day, which will likely be 48 hours this year. These offers are still likely to sell out if they feature popular items, like the Nintendo Switch.

Check out our guide to the best Prime Day tips to ensure you don’t miss out on the hottest deals. Plus, stay tuned to GameSpot during Amazon Prime Day 2020 as we cover the best gaming, tech, and entertainment deals, and be sure to follow GameSpot Deals on Twitter for up-to-date info on lightning deals and more.
