Amazon Prime Day gaming deals 2022: Confirmed dates and best early offers – The Independent
Amazon Prime Day kicks off on 12 and 13 July with its usual two-day shopping bonanza. As always, many big-ticket items will be on offer, so if you’re looking to pick up some new games on PlayStation, Xbox and the Nintendo Switch, or even a console itself, it’s an excellent time to browse for the best deals.
It’s one of the biggest sales of the year, with early discounts of up to 50 per cent confirmed to start appearing as soon as 21 June. The online giant will be slashing the prices of everything from Amazon devices and laptops to TVs and tech, as well as the much sought-after Apple products and even homeware and fashion.
It’s even better news because gaming is one of the most popular Prime Day categories, with prices dropping on usually expensive hardware and software – and if last year’s deals are anything to go by, we’re in for even stronger stuff for the two day period. 2022 has been packed with big releases and we’re expecting a few of those to receive a hefty discount. There’s even a rumour that Amazon could be set to host two Prime Day events this year, so there could be even more opportunities to make big savings.
If you are looking to make savings across these leading brands, as well as on the accessories and games, you’ve come to the right place as we gear up for the big event.

When will Prime Day gaming deals begin?
Amazon Prime Day officially starts on 12 July and runs until 13 July. Amazon also dropped some early gaming deals from 21 June, so there’s plenty of offers to snap up already.
This is a return to the norm for Prime Day, which usually lands in mid-July. But for the past two years, it deviated from this. Owing to the pandemic and to better support its employees in 2020, it was hosted in October, while last year it was brought forward to June as a result of the Olympics.
