Today’s daily deals include a rare PS5 discount, the Mario Day Nintendo Switch bundle, a 512GB Nintendo Switch memory card for only $39.99, a 2TB PS5 SSD for $123, $50 off a pair of the latest Apple AirPods Pro, and 10% off your Minecraft cookbook preorder.
Samsung EVO Select 512GB Micro SDXC Card (Nintendo Switch Compatible) for $39.99
Amazon has the Samsung EVO Select 512GB Micro SDXC card for the lowest price we have ever seen. This card is 100% compatible for the Nintendo Switch console. The Switch only comes with 32GB of built-in storage, which is a paltry amount considering The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes up 14GB of storage all by itself. This card increases your storage by a whopping 16 times!
PS5 God of War Bundle with 2nd DualSense Controller
Dell is offering a PS5 Disc Edition console, bundled with the God of War: Ragnarok game and a second DualSense (Cosmic Red) controller, for only $589.99. If you were to buy the PS5 God of War bundle alone, it would run you $559. The DualSense controller in Cosmic Red costs an additional $75. That means instead of paying $634 for both, you’re paying $589.99. That’s a savings of about $45, or 7%.
Alienware Aurora R14 RTX 3080 PC for $1499.99
This config is equipped with a liquid-cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core processor, RTX 3080 GPU, 16GB of DDR4-3200MHz RAM, and a 1TB SSD. The RTX 3080 is the best card you can get if you’re looking for a GPU that’s powerful enough to run games at 4K @ 60fps at the lowest price. I myself currently run an RTX 3080 equipped system paired with a 4K display and I can run Elden Ring, Genshin Impact, and Hogwarts Legacy just fine at a steady 60fps. Of course, an RTX 4080 or 4090 would allow you to turn on ray tracing while maintaing the same fps, but honestly, is that worth an extra $800-$1800? The liquid cooled Ryzen 7 5800X is a generation old, but it’s still an excellent gaming and workstation processor that pairs very well with the RTX 3080. Other features include an 80PLUS Platinum 750W power supply and a clear side panel to show off your interior components.
Mario Day Deal: Buy a Nintendo Switch Console with Mario Red Controllers, Get Free Game of Your Choice
Mario Day is officially here! All the Switch video games might have gone on sale earlier, but the Switch console bundle exclusive to Mario Day just went live. Not only do you get the Nintendo Switch console with the rare Mario Red Joy-Con controllers, you also get to choose one game among these three: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, or Super Mario Bros U Deluxe. This is a more tempting deal than what we saw on Black Friday, which was a Switch with Neon controllers and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the same price.
Crucial P5 Plus 2TB PS5 SSD for PS5 for $122.99
Constantly going in and out of stock
Crucial’s newest M.2 SSD meets all the requirements for your PS5 SSD upgrade. It supports transfer speeds of up to 6,660MB/s which is well above the 5,500MB/s minimum threshold. Yes there are faster SSDs out there, but if your intention is to put this in your PS5, then that extra speed is worthless because you’re bottlenecked by the original PS5 SSD. If you’re worried about opening up your PS5 case, don’t worry it’s very easy. Crucial has an official YouTube PS5 SSD install guide to see you through the process.
PS5 Digital Edition in Stock on Amazon
We’ve seen the $500+ PS5 Disc Edition consoles and bundles regularly available, but the $399 PS5 Digital Edition is definitely harder to find. The PS5 Digital is exactly the same as the $500 PS5 Disc Edition minus the Blu-ray drive. Unlike the gimped Xbox Series S, it has the same power and performance as its more expensive sibling.
SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless Gaming Headset with ANC and Dual Swappable Batteries for $249.99
Today Best Buy is offering the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless gaming headset for $249.99, a hefty 30% off the original $350 MSRP. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for Steelseries’ top of the line wireless gaming headset. f you’re looking for the absolute best gaming headset and are willing to pay for it, I don’t think there is a better headset than this, and that’s coming from personal experience. Note that this model is compatible with PS5 and PC, but NOT the Xbox.
2nd Gen Apple AirPods Pro for $199.99
The 2nd gen Apple AirPods Pro truly wireless noise cancelling earbuds is back down to Black Friday pricing. Amazon currently has it for $199.99, a price drop of $50. The Apple AirPods Pro is one of the best sounding “truly wireless” earbuds you’ll find, especially at this price point. “Truly wireless” earbuds have no wires whatsoever, even to each other. In addition to the excellent sound quality, the AirPods Pro is the only AirPods earbuds with active noise cancelling technology.
Apple Watch Series 8 for $329
Amazon is offering the latest generation Apple Watch Series 8 (41mm, GPS) in Midnight and (Product) Red for only $329. That’s $70 less than the retail price of $399 and $20 less than the best price we saw on Black Friday. At this price the Apple Watch Series 8 is only $80 more than the Apple Watch SE with a lot more features. We don’t expect the price to drop anytime soon… maybe when Apple announces the Series 9 or closer towards the 2023 holiday season. In any case, that’s several months away. If you need an Apple Watch Series 8 right now, this is going to be one of the best deals you can get.
Alienware Aurora RTX 4090 Gaming PC for $3299
The R15 is Alienware’s latest and top of the line gaming PC, equipped with a 13th gen Intel Core i9 Raptor Lake processor and an overpowered GeForce RTX 4090 GPU. Other specs include 32GB of DDR5-4800MHz RAM and a 1TB SSD. It’s powered by a massive 1350W PSU that should handle anything you can throw at it, and a clear window side panel to show off your fancy RGB backlit internals.
The RTX 4090 is far and away the most powerful video card you can get right now, leaving competitors like AMD’s latest Radeon RX 7900 XTX in the dust. It’s also ridiculously more powerful than any of the RTX 30 series cards: it’s up to 90% faster than the 3080 Ti. The 4090 is the one and only solution to ray-traced 4K gaming at consistent 60+fps. If you’re still not convinced, check out our RTX 4090 review.
Dead Space (PS5 or Xbox) for $49.99
This is the remake that was released on January 27 of this year, and an excellent remake at that. Not convinced? Check out our IGN Dead Space review. This is the biggest discount we’ve seen for the game and now it’s available for both PS5 and Xbox gamers.
HP ENVY RTX 3070 Gaming PC for $1229.99
Here’s a pretty nice deal on an excellent gaming PC for around $1200. This HP ENVY PC features a 12th gen Intel Core i9-12900 16-core Alder Lake CPU, GeForce RTX 3070 GPU, 16GB RAM, and 1TB SSD. The Intel Core i9-12900 is one of the best CPUs available… you’d need to get an Intel Raptor Lake or AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPU to get anything as good or better. The RTX 3070 is a very solid video card for this price level; it will easily get you 60fps+ at up to 1440p gaming.
The GeForce RTX 4090 GPU Is Finally Down to MSRP
The GeForce RTX 4090 GPU is still a difficult card to find without a price markup. There’s a good reason for it, though. Despite the considerably higher price tag, the RTX 4090 is a beast of a card that dominates every other GPU out there, including the 4080. Amazon has steadily lowered the price of certain 4090 models over the past month and today, finally, there’s an RTX 4080 as the base stock price of $1599.99.
Alienware P4500 Gaming Chair for $249.99
The Alienware P4500 gaming chair normally sells for $499.99 but today you can get it for $249.99, or a whopping 50% off in savings. This chair is made by Vertagear and is very similar to their PL4500 line which retails for $400. The P4500 features everything you’d want in a higher end gaming chair: adjustable seat height, backrest, and tilt (with tilt lock), adjustable 4D armrests, as well as removable memory foam neck and lumbar cushions.
