If you’ve been dreaming of playing Elden Ring, or never got around to bagging Fifa 22, the moment has come to clear your ever growing wishlist and build your gaming library.

If you’re not yet a Prime Member, don’t fret. You can subscribe for just £7.99 a month (£3.99 for students), and for those who are new to the service, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial. You’ll gain access to the sales, benefit from free next day delivery on thousands of items, and enjoy hundreds of movies on Prime Video, among other perks.

With thousands of deals to wade through, we’ve rounded up the best gaming offers so you don’t have to do the legwork.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Do you need a Prime account to get the deals?

That’s the one catch, you will need a Prime account.

If you’ve already trialled the service, Prime costs £7.99 per month, or £79 per year, and for students, the monthly cost is reduced to just £3.99 a month.

What type of deals are available?

There are three deals to look out for. The ones that will last the entire event, Deals Of The Day (clue’s in the name), and Lightning Deals which typically last a matter of hours. To keep track of the best discounts in real time, you can check out our live blog where we’ll be posting constant updates. Make sure you get in there quick, because once the stock’s gone, so is the discount.

What deals on gaming were there last year?

Last year, the deals ranged from bundle deals on the Nintendo Switch, to 75 per cent off sought after games like Assassins Creed Odyssey and FIFA 21, to huge discounts off state of the art controllers and headsets.
