Gaming can be an expensive hobby — unless you can wait till a ton of great titles and accessories go on sale and stock up for the year ahead. If that sounds like the better option, know that these Prime Day deals are on fire. Save on everything from individual games to even a few consoles. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a PC, PS5, Xbox or Nintendo Switch gamer — there’s truly something for everyone. There is one caveat, though! If you see something you like, you need to move as fast as Sonic to snag it. These deals end at midnight (or sooner if they all sell out.)
