Now's the time. Pull the trigger.


Despite a rough first day, Amazon Prime day is still going strong -- but it's almost over! Amazon's sale runs through Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. PT (Wednesday, 2:59 a.m. ET). Even so, there are still plenty of gaming deals available, and despite the high interest in all things Prime Day, sales on hardware like the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One S, Oculus Rift headsets and more are still available, with a few game sales sprinkled throughout.

For an even more exhaustive list of Prime Day gaming deals, check out GameSpot's list of deals for Xbox, Switch and PS4 fans.

Buy a Nintendo Switch and get a 64GB memory card and $20 of eShop credit free

If you were hoping for a deep discount on the Nintendo Switch this Prime Day, you may be out of luck -- depending on whether the deal is actually in stock when you check. We've seen the bounce back and forth between unavailable and in stock, so your mileage may vary.

Buying a Switch today will get 64GB of extra storage space for digital games plus $20 of eShop credit to fill it up with.

Nintendo Switch microSD memory, cases, chargers and more

And if you were lucky enough to grab one of those Switch bundles, Amazon has Prime Day deals on tons of accessories that will vastly improve your experience with the Switch. Everything from microSD cards, carrying cases, Joy-con chargers and more have sizable discounts while supplies last.

Xbox One S 1TB Starter Bundle with three months of Game Pass

If you've been looking for an excuse to get an Xbox One, this is a pretty decent one: This $295 starter bundle comes with a 4K video capable Xbox One S, a 1TB hard drive and three months of Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass service -- which gives you access to over 100 games on the spot! That subscription will expire after 90 days, but gamers who pick up this deal on Prime Day will also get a copy of Rare Replay, which comes with 30 classic Rare games to dive into. Either way, this bundle will keep you busy all summer.

Nintendo New 3DS XL: Super NES Edition plus Super Mario Kart for SNES

The Nintendo Switch might not be getting a virtual console, but Nintendo's other portable is still a haven for classic gaming -- and if you're going to pick up a 3DS anyway, why not grab a Super NES Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL with a free copy of Super Mario Kart? All yours for $150. While supplies last.

Oculus Rift Headset, Touch Virtual Reality System

If your PC is powerful enough to handle it, the Oculus Rift is a great way to become immersed in the world of VR. Right now, you can get a headset for $50 off its normal price of $399 at checkout.

HTC Vive Pro Virtual Reality Headset with $50 Viveport digital code

Facebook's Oculus isn't the only game in town if you want high-end virtual reality: the HTC Vive Pro is one of the best high-end VR headsets on the market. It's also one of the most expensive. Amazon's Prime Day deal won't save you much on the actual hardware, but if you pull the trigger today, you'll get a $50 voucher for the headset's Viveport store. Just make sure to scroll down to "Special offers and product promotions" to add the bonus to your cart.

Expired Lightning Deal: Overwatch Legendary Edition for PS4, Xbox One, PC

Typically $60, Overwatch's Legendary Edition comes packed with 5 epic and 5 legendary skins. Don't care about skins? Then this premium edition is the same price as the standard version of Overwatch while supplies last.

Persona 5: PS4

If you're itching for a lengthy, stylish JRPG, Amazon has you covered. This excellent PlayStation exclusive is currently just $30.

Dragon Ball FighterZ: PS4 (digital)

One of most-stylish fighting games in recent memory is also available for a reduced price of PS4 owners, though at the moment the deal is only for a digital copy ($35).

Expired Deal: Get a new Thin and Light Gaming Laptop: MSI GL62M Quad Core i7-7700HQ with GT 1050Ti graphics

Gaming laptops used to be expensive, hulking bricks of computers so large, they made you question if they even qualified as "portable" computers. Not anymore -- these days you can get a mean, lean gaming machine that actually might fit in your backpack. And for $799, MSI's GL62M won't break the bank, either.

Get a new Motherboard for your gaming PC

If you're cracking open your PC to replace the GPU anyway, you might want to look at getting a new motherboard. Thankfully, Amazon has some on sale too.

Throw in liquid cooling and a rad multicolored RGB case, and you've got an affordable $1,499 rig worthy of any LAN party. 

Get $900 off this tiny, but wicked powerful MSI gaming desktop

Okay, this one isn't technically an Amazon Prime sale -- but a deal's a deal, right? While supplies last, Newegg is selling the MSI Vortex G65VR gaming desktop PC for $900 -- a full 50 percent off the regular price. Kitted out with a 3.6GHz Intel Core i7-7700K processor, 16GB of RAM, dual hard drives (128GB SSD and 1TB HD) and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 graphics card, that's a pretty crazy deal.

Get some awesome PC gaming accessories
