The Playstation Days of Play 2019 sale has commenced. We’ve listed very single deal that’s gone live, and we’ll continue to add more deals.
This limited edition Playstation console will be discontinued on June 17. The package includes a sophisticated looking 1TB Playstation 4 Slim console in Steel Black and a matching DualShock controller.
PS Plus membership discounts only happen a few times a year so grab this deal when you can. Perks include online play, free games every month, and exclusive discounts at the PlayStation Store.
This is easily one of the most popular deals during the Days of Play event. Save 33% off and you get to choose from a multitude of colors and styles. This controller is also compatible with a PC via Micro USB or Bluetooth.
The PSN credit can be redeemed for all of the Days of Play deals going at the PlayStation Store. You’d be getting an extra 6% off on top of the already big instant discounts. This is a digital delivery item that’s sent to your inbox, so you’ll have plenty of time to spend it before Days of Play ends.
You can score a PlayStation Classic console for a mere $29.99 during the Days of Play event. The system includes 20 pre-loaded games including Final Fantasy VII, Revelations: Persona, Metal Gear Solid, Grand Theft Auto, and much more. Some people may have turned their noses up to the original $100 price tag, but at 70% off who’s complaining?
This is the PSVR bundle I would recommend because it includes the camera the controllers, and the Beat Saber game. Beat Saber is far and away the funnest, most addictive VR game you can buy. It’s enjoyable, incredibly intuitive, and a very healthy alternative to your normal gaming fare.
Xbox One Deals
Not to be outdone, Xbox has also kicked off it’s E3 sale with hundreds and hundreds of games on sale along with a smattering of console deals. We’ve made a dedicated article that covers every single deal we’ve found.
The “Royale” Purple looks quite slick if I say so myself. Walmart is offering $50 off the MSRP. This is the model with a built-in 4K Blu-ray player, not the newer “digital” edition. Amazon has finally price matched Walmart.
Take $160 (40%) off the Xbox One X console with your choice of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or NBA 2K19 included. This is a much better price than the official $100 discount that will happen during Xbox’s E3 event.
Xbox One X:
Alternatively take $100 (33%) off Xbox One S consoles. These models have a built-in 4K Blu-ray player and are better and cheaper than the new “digital” Xbox One S console.
Xbox One S with 4K Blu-ray Player:
You’ll need to create a (free) account to get this” Power Deal”. This is the best price you should expect to a subscription that’s pretty much required for any Xbox One owner. For those who already have a currently running Xbox Live Gold subscription, keep in mind that buying a new subscription stacks onto your current one. So if you still have 3 months left, adding this will give you 15 months. Xbox Live Gold gives you access to online play, free games every month, and discounted games at Xbox.com.
Take 33% off a brand new official Microsoft Xbox One controller. Besides being the obvious controller of choice for the Xbox console, the official controller is still inarguably my favorite PC game pad.
Yes, it’s true, this game is only $3 if you buy it through the Microsoft Store. We gave it a “Great” 8.5/10 here at IGN.
Nintendo Switch Deals
You must create a (free) account and login to take advantage of this “Power Deal”. A straight up discount on the Nintendo Switch is pretty rare, so grab this while you can. The vendor selling this item “Nationwide Distributer” has over 140,000 feedback on eBay.
Amazon Prime members, the Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield Double Pack is available for $119.99 on Amazon, but I am telling you right now that if you want both editions, buy them separately. Buying them separately will get you a bonus $10 in Amazon credit for EACH game. The Double Pack, however, offers you no Amazon credit at all.
Amazon preorders are great: you won’t be charged until after the game ships, you can cancel anytime with no penalty, and if the price drops even more before the game comes out, your invoice will be automatically adjusted.
Currently $16.99 as part of Amazon’s Lightning Deal (expires 8am PST).
After plunking down $300 on a Nintendo Switch, you might find it hard to spend more money on accessories. Unfortunately, the Switch only comes with 32GB of onboard storage, which is inadequate if you hope to build out any kind of digital library. Fortunately, you can increase your storage capacity 5-fold for only $20. For most people, a 128GB card is all you’ll ever need to hold every single one of your games.
PC Gaming Deals
This deal is as good as you can get for a powerful gaming PC. For $1100 you’re getting an Intel Core i7-8700 GTX 1080 equipped rig with…. 32GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and 2TB HDD??? And you get an extended 2 year warranty? I’ll bet you this deal won’t last longer than a day.
Take $500 off this OVERPOWERED PC from Walmart as well. For under $900 you’re getting an Intel Core i7 6-core processor and GeForce GTX 1070 video card, which is more than capable of taking on all of your PUBG, Fornite, or Apex Legends needs and then some. You also get free 2-day shipping.
Use code “AW630AFF”
This special deal will only last a few days at most. The equpped GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is about 1.5X faster than the GTX 1050 Ti and 10%-25% faster than the GTX 1060. It’s paired with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 6-core processor, a whopping 16GB of memory, and a very generous 512GB SSD.
Use code “E3”
This code drops the price of Octopath Traveler from $59.99 to $44.99. Seth Macy at IGN scored this game (the Switch version) a well deserved Amazing 9.3/10. “Octopath Traveler’s beautiful style and outstanding take on traditional turn-based combat make it a game that pushes JRPGs forward rather than simply paying homage to the greats.“
Use code “E3”
This code drops the price of Warhammer: Chaosbane from $59.99 to $44.99. This game just recently came out. We reviewed it just a few weeks ago and loved it. “Warhammer: Chaosbane can stand proudly alongside some of the best games to have used this setting.“
Use code “SAVE15”
You can equip a 9th generation Intel Core i7 processor and GTX 1080 video card and still keep the price of your rig under $1250.
Use code “SAVE15”
According to our GTX 1660 Ti review, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is comparable to the very capable GeForce GTX 1070 Ti video card. Combine that with the ultimate Intel Core i9-9900 processor. This isn’t the K model, which matters for nothing if you don’t plan on overclocking.
Use code: SAVE15
This Dell G7 gaming laptop comes equipped with the latest 9th generation Intel Core i7 processor and the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card. The GTX 1660 Ti mobile variant performs on par with the RTX 2060, which means it’s about 10%-25% faster than the GTX 1060. It also boasts a 15″ 1080p IPS display, Intel Core i7-9750 processor, 8GB of memory, and dual drives.
Use code: SAVE15
The Dell G5 is a small step down from the G7 above, but you also save over $100. It’s no slouch either. You get the 8th gen Intel Core i7 6-core processor and a GTX 1060 video card with the full 6GB of VRAM. You also get double the RAM and dual drive storage.
Use code “SAVE15”
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti performs on par with the RTX 2060 (1.5X faster than the GTX 1050 Ti and 10%-25% faster than the GTX 1060).
