Unlike other major stores, Best Buy didn’t try too hard to compete during Amazon Prime Day in July, but the retailer has followed up with a major sale of its own this weekend with some deals that are comparable to what we saw during Prime Day. As usual with Best Buy sales, the event focuses largely on general tech deals on things like TVs, computers, smart home devices, and more, but there are some solid game and console deals to be had this weekend as well.
The sale includes some first-party Switch games for $45-$50, which is pretty much the cheapest they get, so it’s a good time to pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu if you’re interested in any of those games. Acclaimed PS4 exclusives like Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War are also down to $20. There are a ton of gaming accessories on sale, with Xbox One wireless controllers for $20 off, refurbished Switch Joy-Cons for only $54, and a 64GB Switch memory card for $25.
