Games! SSDs! Monitors! TVs! More!
I thought there’d be a nice little break between Prime Day and Black Friday, but it seems there’s no rest from the deals. Seemingly out of the blue, Amazon has launched the End of Summer Sale. Not one to let the chance of a good bargain pass you by, I offer you this look at some of the best gaming deals in the Amazon End of Summer Sale.
A quick heads-up before we get started: don’t go in expecting some of the biggest offers of the year. A handful of games are listed at prices you’ve probably seen before, whereas others are basically a load of old unwanted stock they’re probably trying to shift. That said, if you take your search a bit broader you can find a couple of better offers. Those are the ones I’m focusing on here.
Starting with a game or two that may tempt you, there’s Mortal Kombat 11 for 25 on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. A selection of upcoming DLC fighters for the brutal brawler were revealed just yesterday, so if the idea of getting into a bloody scuffle with Shang Tsung, the T-800 or The Joker sounds like a fight you want to see, here’s your chance to get involved on the cheap. The Special Edition is reduced to 32 on PS4 and Xbox One too!
As I said up top, a few other games are in the sale but at less-than-appealing prices. The next best one to give a shoutout to is Diablo 3: The Eternal Collection on PS4 and Xbox One for 19.99. While I definitely wouldn’t begrudge paying that price for Blizzard’s compelling loot-em-up RPG, it’s been available for less before.
As for the rest, well, it’s all a bit lacklustre right now. There are the 2019 editions of many sports sims and the Anthem: Legion of Dawn Edition for 25 on PS4 and Xbox One. But I don’t see any of those really grabbing anyone. Of course, more games could be added to the sale over the coming days, so do check back to see what’s new.
However, if you look a little further afield there are some good deals out there.
For starters, a trio of SD cards is reduced to some of their lowest prices so far. Of the lot, the best deal is this SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSD Card for just 13.69. If you’re looking for a good value SD card to upgrade your Switch storage, then this is a perfect choice. A couple of higher-capacity cards are also discounted to decent prices, but they’ve been slightly lower in the past.
Sticking with SanDisk, you can also find a third off the SanDisk Ultra 3D 2TB SSD at 219.99. Again, it’s another item that’s been slightly lower in the past, and you’re better off going for the Samsung 2 TB 860 QVO SSD while that’s down to 173.99. Going the other way and sticking with the Switch theme, you can ensure your console is always ready to be charged on the go with this Anker PowerCore Speed 10000mAh Power Bank for only 20.99.
Elsewhere, shelves of TVs and gaming monitors have had their prices slashed. Listing all of them would create a page of incomprehensible garbage, so I’ve just picked out a few of the highlights below.
Finally, let’s cover a few other related items you might be interested in. There are these Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones for 259. That’s the cheapest they’ve dropped to for a while now. For a somewhat cheaper option, you can go for the Sennheiser HD 4.50 Special Edition at just 89.99. And then there’s the Razer BlackWidow Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Green Switches for 124.99. Those are the tactile and clicky switches, just so you know!
That’s yer lot for gaming gear. For all the rest, you can take a trip to our Amazon End of Summer Sale deals hub over at Jelly Deals. You’ll find many more of the best offers there, including an iPhone 6s (32GB) for 299 or a Sony RX100 III Advanced Compact Premium Camera for 389.
The Amazon End of Summer Sale runs from 22nd August until 30th August.
