It’s that time of year again, where Amazon has Prime Day, a shopping holiday where big discounts are offered on products if you have Amazon Prime, and 2020’s edition may not land you a PS5 or Xbox Series X, but it does have a number of gaming deals that you should check out all the same.

FIFA 21 Has Biggest Boxed Launch Of 2021 In UK, But Switch Version Flops

FIFA is a big deal in the UK, and the launch of FIFA 21 has done big business in the UK–with some caveats. FIFA 21 is the biggest physical game launch in the UK this year, but sales are down compared to FIFA 20, and the Switch version has sold poorly.

Gamesindustry.biz is reporting that sales on FIFA 21’s boxed copies are down 42% on boxed sales of FIFA 20.

Prime Day 2020: Early Look At Nintendo Switch, Smart TV, And Tech Deals

Before the start of Prime Day 2020, Amazon unveiled a portion of the deals shoppers can take advantage of during the annual blowout sale. The list of deals includes some noteworthy Nintendo Switch discounts and a bunch of Amazon devices for low prices. Prime Day 2020 kicks off tomorrow, October 13 at midnight PT / 3 AM ET, so it won’t be long before you can start saving big on a wide assortment of gaming, tech, and entertainment products.

On the gaming front, Amazon has only revealed deals pertaining to the Nintendo Switch. Shoppers can save 36% on a bundle including a 12-month Nintendo Switch Online family membership and a SanDisk 128GB microSD card. Amazon didn’t provide specifics, but we assume the microSD card is the officially branded Nintendo model. If that’s the case, you’ll be able to grab this bundle for $44.80, down from $70.
