Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner, so it’s time to get ready for what we expect to see during this year’s event. That would mean a drop in many games and accessories, as well as a potential deal or two on consoles.
Prime Day Xbox Series X and S Inventory
Unlike the PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series X has been slowly recovering in terms of inventory. In the UK, Microsoft’s flagship game console has been available on Amazon for the past few weeks. Since it was in stock during last year’s Prime Day and other events like Black Friday, we can expect it to be a little easier to buy from this online behemoth.
As for the U.S., restocks for the Xbox Series X are still light. We want the console to show up on Prime Day, but we don’t expect to see any discounts. In the meantime, you can check out the latest Xbox inventory updates on Eurogamer’s Xbox Inventory Inspector page.
The Xbox Series S has been widely available at most retailers since its release, so if you’re opting for the future of all-digital gaming, Prime Day will serve you well.
Given it’s early days for both consoles, we don’t expect Amazon (or any retailer) to offer discounts unless Microsoft offers an official product. However, Amazon has previously optimized the Series X bundle to combine it with games like Far Cry 6 for less than the total MSRP.
Prime Day 2022 Xbox Game Deals
There were some great deals on Xbox games last year, including popular titles like FIFA 21 and Watch Dogs Legion.
We can expect some nice reductions in popular and smaller titles again this year. Some of the year’s biggest games to date, like Elden Ring and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, are still relatively new, so it would be interesting to see if those games were discounted like the ones released during the 2021 holiday season.
Prime Day Xbox Controller Deals
During special holidays and major sales events, the official Xbox Wireless Controller is often marked down by multiple retailers, including Amazon. The company also offers an Elite controller, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Microsoft and third-party controllers drop again, making it an ideal time to pick up a second controller.
Prime Day Xbox Headset Deals
Many headphones were dropped during Prime Day last year. Amazon is great at offering discounts on gaming headsets at different times of the year, but Prime Day is when we can expect bigger discounts on a wider lineup, so it’s the perfect time to upgrade your headset without having to go with those cheap wired ones Headphones earplugs.
We’ll be updating this page throughout the Prime Day event for any discounts we find for Xbox gamers, so bookmark this page and check back when Prime Day 2022 kicks off.
