Prime Day Xbox Deals: Best Early Discounts On Consoles, Games, And More

With Amazon Prime Day (technically called Prime Early Access Sale) running October 11-12, you can expect to see plenty of great gaming deals over the next week. If the Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One is your platform of choice, you’ve come to the right place for Prime Day Xbox deals. Though there will be plenty more deals that become available over the next several days, major retailers already have a nice batch of discounts.

Thanks to Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S are popular consoles for frugal gamers. But while many big titles are included in the service, many third-party blockbusters are missing from the Game Pass catalog. If you’re looking to pick up one of those titles (or you’re simply not a Game Pass subscriber), you’ll be glad to know that dozens of titles are on sale as a part of several early Prime Day promotions.

Xbox games aren’t the only thing on sale ahead of October’s Prime Day, as you’ll also find a ton of accessories such as headsets and controllers available for some of the lowest prices of 2022. And if you’re still looking for an Xbox Series X|S console, a few great bundles are up for grabs.

You’ll find a roundup of the best early Prime Day deals for Xbox games and Xbox accessories below. Be sure to check back in the coming days as Amazon’s event kicks off–and other retailers launch competing promotions.

But before diving into some great game and accessory deals, here are a few console discounts to peruse, along with a great deal on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold.

The number of Xbox games on sale right now is truly staggering. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available for just $19, Back 4 Blood is only $11, and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is $37–all of which are easy recommendations with those price tags.

Cyberpunk 2077 is seeing something of a revival right now, and you can pick up a copy for just $25 at Amazon.

The Witcher Remake Will Be Fully Open World, Unlike The Original

The recently announced remake of The Witcher in Unreal Engine 5 will be fully open world, marking a major change from the original game.

Developer CD Projekt Red announced the news as part of its Q3 2022 earnings report, where it listed the title, codenamed Canis Majoris, as a “story-driven, single player open-world RPG–a modern reimagining of 2007’s The Witcher.” That the game will be open world wasn’t mentioned during its initial announcement in October.

Though the critically acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is open world, the first two entries in The Witcher series are not. Instead, the first two games in the franchise featured large open zones players could explore. However, progressing the story past certain key points would move players to a new zone, closing off the previous area entirely. The earnings report doesn’t elaborate further on how the new open world approach may change other aspects of the game.

The Superb 8BitDo Ultimate Controller Is Just $36 For Cyber Monday

Black Friday may be over, but there’s still a chance to snag a deal on one of the best controllers on the market for Xbox and PC during Cyber Monday. The superb 8BitDo Ultimate is now going for just $36, a big discount from its usual $45 asking price. This is an Amazon Lightning Deal and is only available until the end of the Cyber Monday (or until it sells out).

What makes this controller so good is that it’s a multiplatform device that can work on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It’s worth noting that the 8BitDo Ultimate is a wired controller for Xbox and PC, but it’s still easily one of the best Xbox controllers around. Only the black and Pastel Pink models are available for this price.

Besides being a comfortable fit for your hands with its shape and featuring quality components, the big deal here is the customization on offer. You can fine-tune your inputs, adjust your analog stick sensitivity, and much more using 8BitDo’s software, and the controller can store up to three profiles that you can switch between on the fly. If you want a setup that favors quick trigger pulls when you play Call of Duty, a profile that heightens analog stick sensitivity when you play Forza Horizon, and a custom arrangement for fighting games, you’ll be easily covered.

This Great Nintendo Switch Handheld Controller Is Only $35 For Cyber Monday
