Although the shopping bonanza usually goes ahead in July each year – bar 2020, when it took place in October – we’ve been treated to a slightly earlier start in 2021. Prime Day will instead run from 21 June to 22 June.
Last year’s shopping event was one of the biggest yet, despite taking place smack bang in the middle of a global pandemic. More than a million deals were up for grabs, resulting in the two biggest days ever for third-party sellers.
Despite the PS5 proving almost impossible to buy, with it constantly selling out as soon as it comes in stock, it’s still the bestselling console of 2021, and its staggering sales mean that it was recently named the fastest-selling console in US history.
While the PS5 isn’t on sale – Amazon is having trouble keeping the console in stock, after all – a number of our favourite PS5 games are on sale. Not all of these games are PS5 exclusives – some games have been released on the PS4 and Xbox Series X as well – but you’ll find the best prices on PS5 games this Prime Day.
