Best video game deals for Xbox, PlayStation
There's an extensive range of deals on video games for the latest consoles currently available via Amazon. The best savings are found on physical, disc-based versions, often significantly undercutting their digital counterparts. We've wrapped up the best discounts out now, and their respective prices on Xbox and PlayStation.
Madden NFL 21 brought new modes and upgrades to its take on virtual football last August, with up to 50% off already available during Prime Day. You also score a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X or PS5 version, paired with graphical upgrades, enhanced AI, and faster load times.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection | $23 at Amazon
Halo: The Master Chief Collection packs the best of Microsoft's legendary shooter franchise into one bundle, currently featuring six entries spanning almost two decades. The title continues to receive frequent updates with its recent PC debut, with the launch of Season 3 bringing all-new content to Halo 3, and introducing Halo 3: ODST's cooperative Firefight. This is the must-buy for any Xbox One owner, with a digital discount now up for Xbox Live Gold members through the Prime Day window.
Beloved for its crazed sandbox and unhinged humor to match, Saints Row The Third received a full remaster in 2020 with improved lighting, effects, and more. You get all DLC included in this bundle, with Deep Silver serving up a welcome discount for Prime Day. Has free upgrades to the new generation Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
Ubisoft's world of assassination makes its return this November with a Viking journey touching Norway and Britain's Dark Ages. Brutal combat and large-scale conflict take the stage, with a free launch day upgrade to Xbox Series X, Series S, and PlayStation 5. Amazon has already cut Assassin's Creed Valhalla by $10 for last-minute preorders.
While few movie franchises were better suited to a crazed arcade racer, Fast & Furious Crossroads launched to middling reviews, attributed to overall shallow gameplay, failing to reflect the source material's identity. But with an original story taking inspiration from iconic movie moments, and a strong roster of vehicles, the discount just two months post-release may tempt diehard movie fans. Backwards compatible on the new generations.
Shadow of War pulls inspiration from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien, exploring a wide-scale conflict through a rich single-player adventure. The game embraces the hallmarks of any great role-playing title, including the series' defining "Nemesis" system, where enemies and allies develop personalities based on previous interactions with the player. This all-inclusive bundle also features the expansions, serving up the complete experience for one low price.
