What to expect from Prime Day Gaming deals 2022

We hope to see some discounts on models on the best gaming headsets (opens in new tab), the best gaming keyboards (opens in new tab) and the best gaming chairs (opens in new tab), so make sure to check out these guides before shopping the Prime Day sale.
Our first gaming prediction is on gaming set-ups. If you’re a hardcore gamer and tend to play games for long periods of time, it’s important that you’re set-up is both comfortable and professional. From the Prime Day sale, we expect to see big discounts on gaming chairs, keyboards, controllers, headsets and mice from popular brands like SecretLab, BraZen and Razer.
When it comes to restocks on popular gaming consoles like the Xbox Series X, we predict that Amazon could have Xbox Series X and S stock that will drop over the Prime Day sale. As these consoles are in such high demand, we wouldn’t expect to see huge price drops on them but percentage discounts of around 5-20% off. We’re already seeing deals on the Nintendo Switch & Switch Lite so we’d like to see more money taken off during the 48 hours event. We also predict that we’ll be seeing gaming bundle deals where you can buy headsets and keyboards together, as well as consoles and games deals.
Finally, our last prediction is on video games. For Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and PCs, we expect to see loads of price drops and bundles at record low prices this year. In the early deals, you can currently get up to 80% off Electronic Arts video games (opens in new tab), including deals on FIFA, The Sims, Battlefield and many more.
