Amazon Prime Day 2021 is here at last, which means major deals on controllers, games, gaming TVs, and accessories. Popular PC gaming companies like Razer, Logitech, and SteelSeries also drop their products to all-time low prices during Prime Day, so expect deals on those items as well.
Unfortunately, Prime Day doesn’t have too many sales on individual games outside of the Nintendo Switch, but Best Buy and other retailers are holding competing sales. Walmart is also price matching Amazon for certain Switch sales during Prime Day, if you’re not a Prime member already.

Best Amazon Prime Day gaming headset deals
The rise of online gaming has made a headset an invaluable tool for communicating with your team and hearing potential enemies while you play. Even consoles like the PlayStation and Nintendo Switch now support surround sound headsets to help gamers stay locked in and focused.
Features on gaming headsets can vary widely given the range of sound options and choices for wireless and amplified headsets, but Prime Day offers a solid selection for sale.
Top Amazon Prime Day deals on gaming monitors
Monitors have been in relatively short supply due to the increased number of people working from home, but Prime Day 2021 has deals on some of the most popular models for gamers.
High refresh rate monitors are increasingly popular among PC gamers who crave faster response time for competitive games, and the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles are designed to reach higher refresh rates too.
How to shop for the best Prime Day 2021 gaming deals
With the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S|X still in short supply and no deals on the Nintendo Switch, it’s not a great time to go shopping for a new video game console. Instead, it could be a good time to upgrade to a surround sound headset, premium controller, or a high refresh rate monitor to get ready for the next generation of gaming hardware.
Also, remember that while Amazon lists thousands of gaming products, many of the most popular Prime Day sales are also available at competitors like Best Buy and Walmart. Be sure to compare prices and make sure you’re not settling for a worse version of an everyday product (like a controller) just because it’s on Amazon.
