Best early Prime Day PlayStation deals 2022

With PlayStation 5 consoles still difficult to come by, it's hard to see a discount on these any time soon. However, Amazon did have some stock last year, even if they did fly out in seconds like always. Hopefully we'll see a stock refresh at Amazon for the console.

Regardless of console stock issues, there were some great deals on PS4 and PS5 games last year. Returnal was available for $49 and Final Fantasy VII Remake was just $30. We can expect some more reductions on PS5 titles like Returnal, as well as discounts on multiplatform titles on the PS4.

We've rounded up some of the best early Prime Day PlayStation deals below.

US deals:

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remake on PS5 - $32 (was $50)

Best early Prime Day Xbox deals 2022

With both Xbox consoles being similarly new like the PlayStation 5, we doubt we'll see any major discounts on either of them. The Series S has almost always been available since launch, but now the Series X seems to be more widely available too.

Amazon have had a bundle or two for the Series X, with games like Far Cry 6, so it'll be interesting to see if there's a deal to be had. Otherwise, we can expect to see some solid reductions on third-party titles.

For now, you can find the best early Prime Day Xbox deals in the list below.
