Amazon Gaming Week is back for a second time this year, with impressive price reductions across a wide range of products. There's promotions on everything from laptops, monitors and gaming headsets to mice and keyboards and much more. You can also land some big savings on SSDs and HDDs. We've had a nosey through everything that's on offer to bring you the best deals and savings in the sale so far.
The event started yesterday (25th August) and ends next Tuesday on 31st August 2021. So far, we've spotted similar, sometimes cheaper deals than what Amazon featured in its previous Gaming Week back in May. So be sure to keep checking back as we'll be updating this page with more deals throughout the event.
Here are some of the top highlights below and what the best offers are ahead of Black Friday later this year.
Best gaming mouse deals
There's a strong selection of Logitech gaming mice included in the promotion, many of which feature in Digital Foundry's top picks for gaming mice, such as the Logitech G502 HERO for £49. Digital Foundry named it the most comfortable gaming mouse thanks to its ergonomic shape and lightweight design. It features a HERO 25k sensor for performance of up to 25600 DPI, 11 buttons alongside a hyper-fast scroll wheel, and a rainbow of customisable colours.
If you're after something a little cheaper, the G203 with a 8k sensor is available in black for £18. In addition to the Logitech mice, there are also some decent deals on Corsair and Razer mice, such as the Corsair Dark Core RGB PRO for £80, which was highlighted as the best RGB gaming mouse by Digital Foundry.
Here are some of the other great mice included in the promotion:
Best gaming keyboard deals
There are some good savings on Corsair keyboards in Amazon's Gaming Week, with the K60 RGB PRO gaming keyboarddown to £101, which Digital Foundry named as one of the best gaming keyboards thanks to its Cherry Viola switches. After something a little cheaper? If so, you can pick up the K57 RGB Wireless for £70 - another gaming keyboard to make the cut in Digital Foundry's top picks.
Here's what else is available in the sale:
Best gaming laptop deals
If you've been waiting for a dedicated gaming laptop to come down in price, now's your chance to snap up a bargain. The Amazon Gaming Week has knocked up to 30% on selected HP, ASUS, Dell, Alienware, Razer and MSI gaming laptops.
At the more expensive end, you can grab 40 percent off the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S15 GX502LXS gaming laptop with a 15.6" 300 Hz display, which is now £1,800. It boasts some impressive specs: a 2.3Ghz Intel i7, RTX 2080 Super, 32GB RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD.
For under a grand, you can pick up the MSI GP65 Leopard for £840. It has a 2.6Ghz Intel i7, GTX1660Ti, 16GB RAM and a 512GB NVMe SSD all for £360 off its regular price.
If this is still out of your budget, you might want to consider this Acer Nitro 5 15.6 inch Gaming Laptop for £800. That sports an Intel Core i7, GTX 1660Ti, 8GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD.
You can check the what else is on offer in the list below:
Best monitor deals
You can score a great deal on monitors too, including the LG Ultragear 27GL83A-B 27" gaming monitor in black, which is back down to £370 (that's a saving of £70 quid). As Mat mentioned during Amazon's Gaming Week in May, the monitor features 'a super-fast Nano IPS panel, with the colour reproduction of IPS with a 1ms response time bolstered with an impressively low input lag of 4ms, which means it shares a lot of similarities with Digital Foundry's best gaming monitor'.
There's also 23 per cent off the 34" Acer Nitro XV340CKP HD gaming monitor, which is now just £499. Ideal if you prefer a bigger screen.
We've also spotted a decent discount on the 27" Dell S2721HGF curved gaming monitor which is down to £149.
Best gaming headset deals
There are some quality gaming headsets included in the promotion, including the Logitech G PRO X for £164.63, which was named the best PS5 headset in Digital Foundry's best gaming headsets of 2021 guide. You can also save £25.50 on the Astro A40 TR gaming headset, which is now £124.49.
Another great deal to take advantage of is 28% off the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Wireless Gaming Headset. Now £129 and saving you almost £51.
Best SSD and HDD deals
The Samsung 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 M.2 2TB Solid State Drive is included in the sale however, it's still pretty expensive. It's been reduced to £292, saving you just over £74. It doesn't have its own heatsink, so you'll have to buy a cooling solution alongside it, which can be a bit fiddly but manageable if you're already planning on installing the drive to your PS5. A heatsink can also only cost couple of quid or a few dollars.
If it's the 1TB version you're after, it's worth noting it was cheaper on Prime Day by around £13, so we might see it come down further during Black Friday. This is still, however, a great price compared to other retailers at the moment. Be sure to check out Digital Foundry's guide on the best PS5 SSD deals for more options.
The WD Black P50 1TB SSD is now £170. It can store and run PS4 games, and it'll also store your Series X and PS5 games (but you can't run them directly from the drive).
For a cheaper and smaller alternative for storage requirements, our top pick is the rugged SanDisk 1TB NVMe SSD for £125. And if it's simply storage you're after and don't mind using a HDD, you can pick up the 2TB WD Black HDD for £70or double the storage space for an extra £27. You'll get one-month Xbox Game Pass membership included too.
Other top Amazon Week deals
There are some deals on video games included in the promotion, such as NieR Replicant on Xbox One for £33, and on PS4 for £35. Scarlet Nexus is also reduced on PS4 and Xbox for £30, and on PS5 for £32. There's also a bunch of EA games on sale, with Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order on offer for £19 on Xbox, PS4 and PS5 for £19. Of course, if any more decent games go on sale throughout the week that's worth mentioning, we'll let you know.
