Daily Deals: Grab a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S Today – IGN

Whether PlayStation, Nintendo, or Xbox is your thing, there’s a console in stock for you today. First, the still hard-to-find PS5 is in stock at Walmart, with Horizon Forbidden West included. Xbox fans can check out the deal on an Xbox Series S that comes included with a select game of your choice, including Elden Ring or Forza Horizon 5. The Xbox Series X is also in stock at Best Buy and Walmart. And, the Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon Edition is now orderable on Amazon. Plus, check out more deals like the lowest price ever on a 65″ LG C2 OLED 4K TV, or the latest Apple iPad for only $279.99, and more.

PlayStation 5 Horizon Forbidden West Bundle In Stock

The PlayStation 5 needs no introduction, and even almost two years after release, it’s still very hard to find. However, it seems like we may have turned a corner for PS5 availability, as the console has been readily available all weekend. Today, you can get the disc edition of the PS5 from Walmart as part of the Horizon Forbidden West PlayStation 5 bundle. And, despite getting an unfortunate price hike in most of the world, the price in the U.S. is still the same, meaning this bundle comes in at about $549. If you’re interested, don’t wait too long, as we don’t know how long this will stay in stock.

Xbox Series X In Stock at Best Buy, Walmart

Xbox Series X

The Xbox Series X has been easier to find in recent months than the PlayStation 5, another sign that the console shortage may be coming to an end. Either way, the top of the line Xbox is in stock today at both Best Buy and Walmart, so if you’ve been waiting to pick up the best Xbox, you can pick from your retailer of choice.

Get an Xbox Series S with Forza Horizon 5 for Free

Xbox Series S + Forza Horizon 5: Standard Edition [Digital Code]


Xbox Series S + Forza Horizon 5: Standard Edition [Digital Code]

On the Xbox side, you can get the cheapest current-gen console for $299. Yes, that’s the Xbox Series S’ normal price, but this one at Amazon comes bundled with a digital copy of Forza Horizon 5, which won IGN’s Game of the Year award last year. If Forza’s not your thing, this same price applies to bundles where you can select games like Elden Ring or LEGO Star Wars, both of which are not on Xbox Game Pass, unlike Forza Horizon 5.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Is $39.99 on PS5

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade

The Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy will see its next installment late next year with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, and fans of the PSP spinoff Crisis Core are looking forward to a remaster of the game coming later this year. If you want to jump on the Final Fantasy VII hype train, you can grab the extended version of 2020’s Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation 5. This comes with an enhanced version of the base game, along with the DLC chapter that stars Yuffie, a beloved character from the original game.

Preorder The Art of God of War Ragnarok for 10% Off

The Art of God of War Ragnarök

God of War Ragnarok is the most anticipated game remaining in 2022, and you can preorder the game’s art book now. We still don’t know much about the plot or world of the game, but the book doesn’t come out untul a few weeks after the game’s November launch, so you’ll have plenty of time to complete the story before flipping through the book.

65″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1797

LG Evo C2 65

$100 Deducted at Checkout

LG Evo C2 65″ 4K OLED Gaming TV

This is the lowest price we have ever seen for the 65″ and 77″ LG C2 OLED TVs. The LG C2 is, in my humble opinion, the best mainstream OLED TV to get right now. Unlike other brands who have only recently started pushing out OLED TVs, LG has several generations of updates and improvements over the years. The C2 is the newest model and it features an improved “Evo” OLED panel over the C1. Previously reserved only for the LG Gallery Series OLED TVs, the Evo panel offers higher brightness levels and thus better HDR range.

This is a perfect gaming TV. It has four HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel that supports true 4K @ 120Hz passthrough when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped PC. There’s also variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay. The LG C2 also supports HGiG, which is automatically calibrated tone mapping specific to your TV model.

Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon Edition Now Orderable from Amazon

Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon Edition

The first themed Nintendo Switch OLED is now available on Amazon. The Splatoon Edition includes a sweet pair of blue and yellow gradient Joy-Con controllers (white underbelly) and a graffiti adorned Switch body and docking station. It’s only $10 more than the retail cost of the standard Switch OLED console, and in my opinion, more than worth the surcharge.

Hard-to-Find Splatoon amiibo In Stock Now

Splatoon 2 Inkling Girl (Neon Pink) amiibo

Nintendo amiibo

Splatoon 2 Inkling Girl (Neon Pink) amiibo

This amiibo figure from Nintendo originally launched way back in 2017 alongside Splatoon 2. The figure quickly became hard to find and expensive from online resellers. Now, five years later, the Splatoon 2 Inkling Girl figure has popped back up for normal price over on Amazon. If you’re a big Splatoon fan picking up the special Nintendo Switch OLED listed above, this is another great add to your Splatoon collection.

Fast and Furious Board Game On Sale for Under $10

Fast & Furious: Highway Heist Game

This is a cooperative board game taking place within the crazy world of the Fast and Furious movies. There are multiple different scenarios, including running from Fast 5’s tank, stealing from a semi truck from the original movie, and avoiding Shaw’s helicopter from Furious 7. I’ve played this myself, and it’s a fun, wacky way to experience the world of Fast and Furious, and it’s on sale today for under 10 bucks.

Apple iPad 10.2″ 64GB for $279.99

Apple iPad 10.2

This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the newest Apple iPad (it was $299 on Amazon Prime Day). Apple’s latest 10.2″ iPad is a great option for school, work, or simply relaxing with your favorite movie, book, or streaming service. It features the new Apple A13 Bionic chip for fast CPU and GPU performance to tackle just about anything, and the large 10.2-inch Retina display ensures everything is bright and crisp during use. iPad also features both a front-facing camera for voice chat, and rear camera for taking photos and videos.

ASUS TUF Dash 15

ASUS TUF Dash 15″ Intel Core i7-12650H RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD

This was one of the most popular gaming laptop deals during Amazon Prime Day, and it’s back for a cheaper price! That’s right, this particular ASUS TUF Dash 15″ gaming laptop was priced at $1100 on Black Friday, but it’s only $999.99 today. It features an RTX 3060 GPU with 105W max TGP and the newest generation Intel Core i7-12650H Alder Lake processor. The new Alder Lake processors are a significant performance bump over previous gen Intel CPUs. Complementing these specs are 16GB of DDR5 RAM and a 512GB SSD.

Dell S2721DGF 27

Dell S2721DGF 27″ 2560×1440 1ms 165Hz G-SYNC IPS Gaming Monitor

The Dell S2721DGF is one of the best 27″ gaming monitors under $500, and it’s heavily discounted today. The S2721DGF boasts a QHD (2560×1440) resolution, a high quality IPS panel with wide viewing angles and excellent color rendition including 98% DCI-P3 color coverage, a super fast 1ms response time and up to 165Hz refresh rate through the DisplayPort.

Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for $999.99

Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GAMING OC 24GB Video Card

Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GAMING OC 24GB Video Card

Woot has the Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for only $999.99. This is an outstanding price for one of the most powerful video cards available. On Amazon, the least expensive RTX 3090 GPU is over $1300. Although the RTX 3090 is indeed a best-in-class gaming card (it’s as much as 20% more powerful than the RTX 3080 at 4K resolution), it’s actually not really intended for gamers. The RTX 3090 is the workstation GPU of choice not because of its processing power (which it has in spades), but because of the massive 24GB of GDDR6X RAM.

Acer Predator Orion 3000 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3070 Gaming PC for $1399.99

Acer Predator Orion 3000 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3070  Gaming PC with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD

Acer Predator Orion 3000 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3070 Gaming PC with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD

This is a great price for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3070 GPU. The RTX 3070 is significantly more powerful than the RTX 3060 Ti or the RTX 2080 SUPER. It is the perfect card for 1440p gaming, even at high refresh rates (the RTX 3080 and higher are generally overkill). It’s paired with an 11th generation Intel Core i7-11700F 8-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and 1TB HDD. The case looks slick too, with its windowed side panel and RGB.

Unlike most other Arcade1Up cabinets, this package includes a matching stool and a themed riser.

Sign up for 1 Year of HBO Max, Save 41.6% Off Compared to Buying Monthly

Pay for 12 months of HBO Max and get 40% off your order total. HBO Max is normally $9.99/month ($119.88/yr) for the ad-supported plan and $14.99/month ($179.88/yr) for the ad-free plan. Instead you’d be paying $69.99 for 1 year of the ad-supported plan or $104.99 for 1 year of the ad-free plan. That’s technically a savings of 41.6%.

This is the perfect time to sign up for HBO Max. The highly anticipated Game of Thrones’ House of the Dragon premiered exclusively on HBO Max starting August 21. Set 200 years before the events of the original Game of Thrones TV series, House of the Dragon covers the fall of House Targaryen. In addition to Game of Thrones, HBO Max is host to the entire collection of DC movies (including The Batman), Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings and movies like Dune, King Richard, Free Guy, and much, much more.

Wingspan Board Game for $39.99

Wingspan Board Game

Wingspan is an incredibly good board game. So good in fact that we deemed it the best board game of 2019. Improbably enough, the year’s hottest game is one about keeping birds in a nature reserve. But the wide appeal of the theme, lovely art and simple rules meant lots of players got to enjoy the fiendish engine-building game beneath. A choice of a mere four actions blossoms into an excruciating balance between adding birds, feeding them and scoring points. Yet tricky as it is, the pace of play leaves you itching for another try to evolve your strategies, while 170 bird cards ensure every game is different. The board game is worth it even at the $65 retail price, but today it’s nearly 40% off.

Newest Apple TV 4K 64GB

The Apple TV 4K happened to be one of Amazon Prime Day’s hottest sellers. Today the price has dropped down to the same as what we saw on Prime Day. The newest Apple TV features two major upgrades. It boasts an A12 Bionic processor that boosts graphics performance, video decoding, and audio processing and delivers high frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision. It also includes a new Apple TV remote. The overall build quality is better than before, but the biggest enhancements are a 5-way clickpad, mute button, and dedicated power button that works for your TV, receiver, and Apple TV.
