Amazon Prime Day 2022 PlayStation deals
(Pocket-lint) - Amazon Prime Day will take place across 12-13 July this year, and that means you can soon nab yourself some great bargains for PS4 and PS5. Discounted accessories and games will be available, so there should be something for everyone. Here's everything you need to know about the PlayStation deals to expect this coming Prime Day 2022.
When is Prime Day 2022?
Amazon Prime Day 2022 has been confirmed for 12-13 July.Best PS5 games 2022: Amazing PlayStation 5 titles to pick up By Max Freeman-Mills . 20 June 2022
The Prime Day sales are complementary to retailer's Black Friday sales and give Amazon the opportunity to move on stock in a mid-year sale and give you the chance to grab a bargain.
What PlayStation deals should you expect on Prime Day?
With the PlayStation 4 all but discontinued, it is unlikely that there will be any consoles available at a discount.
Sony can't even make enough PS5 units to fulfill demand at full price, However, you should expect to see a lot of games at bargain prices, for both PS4 and PS5. Controllers and headsets will also have prices slashed.
And it could be a great time to subscribe to one of the new PS Plus tiers, as membership is often offered with a decent slice off. We'll let you know of all the best deals, of course.
Do you need to be a Prime member?
Unlike Black Friday, the Prime Day sales are exclusive to members of Amazon Prime. You can either subscribe to the service on a yearly or monthly basis, or sign up for a 30-day free trial and cancel before the first payment is due.
If you do cancel, you will however miss out on the other benefits to Prime membership, including free delivery, Prime Video streaming, Prime Music, Prime Gaming, and much more. squirrel_widget_157589 Best US PlayStation deals | Best UK PlayStation deals
