The holiday season is here, and Amazon has rolled out “12 Days of Deals” to help you save on the best gear from its most popular categories.
Today’s deals are all about gaming, with a particular focus on PC hardware rather than consoles. Below you’ll find the discounts on laptops and desktops that can run some of the latest games on their highest settings. There are also important accessories like a gaming mouse and keyboard, which will help you step your game up to the next level.
The standout deal is a $70 discount on the Oculus Rift, one of the most popular and high-end virtual reality headsets. You’ll need to connect it to a pretty powerful computer in order to play games smoothly, but if you’re a serious PC gamer who’s curious about VR, don’t let this deal pass you by.
Although this sale is mostly about PC hardware, it also includes a few special edition PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch games for up to $30 off. If you’re looking for a console hardware deal, the best I could find is a $50 discount on an Xbox One X bundled with Fallout 76. It’s not a part of the “12 Days of Deals,” but it’s a sold discount nonetheless.
If you’re shopping for a gamer, any of the hardware, accessories, or games below would make great gifts. But remember, because they’re all part of a “deal of the day,” they’re only going to be available for a few more hours. If something catches your eye, you should act sooner than later.
