If you didn't manage to pick up any good gaming deals during the October Prime Day sale, you've got a chance to fix that this weekend. Best Buy has just started a massive three-day sale on gaming consoles, laptops, desktops, accessories and games across all the platforms. You can pretty much be sure to find something worth grabbing with a deal on.

Also, if you have My Best Buy Plus or Total, you get some extra discounts and deals, too. If you don't have either, double-check if the deal you grab has My Best Buy discounts that will offset the membership cost. 

There are a couple of deals on the Xbox Series X you can take advantage of if you have a My Best Buy Plus or Total membership. For example, you can get an extra controller when you buy a Series X for $500, or you can grab the Series X Diablo 4 bundle for $500 instead of $560 if you have My Best Buy Plus or Total. That means you essentially get Diablo 4 for free. Sadly there aren't any deals on the PlayStation 5 version.

There are a lot more games and add-on sales, starting with this offer that gives you 15% off the second gaming gift card you buy. You can grab the excellent Assassin's Creed Valhalla for the PS5 for $15 and also $15 for the Xbox version. If you're more into sports, there's Madden NFL 24 for the PS5 for $45 and for the Xbox also for $45. If you're a Spidey fan, then you can grab Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the PS5 for the discounted price of $20.

If you're a PC gamer, there are a few good deals there, too, like this Acer Nitro 5 15.6-inch laptop with an RTX 3050Ti discounted down to $700 from $950. Or, if you'd like to bump up the GPU, this 16.1-inch HP Omen has an RTX 4050 and is discounted to $800 from $1,250. Meanwhile the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 has an RTX 4060 and is going for $1,100, rather than the usual $1,450. If you'd prefer a desktop, you can save $100 and get this MSI Codex R with an RTX 4060 for $900 instead of $1,000.

There are many more deals, especially on peripherals and accessories, so be sure to check the complete sale and grab anything you need before the deals end on Sunday.
