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.
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%.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Preorder and Save 11% Off the Minecraft: Gather, Cook, Eat! Official Cookbook
This official Minecraft cookbook releases on April 4 for $27.99, but you can preorder it and get it for $24.99 (11% off) right now on Amazon. This hardcover book features 110 fully colored pages of tried and true recipes with iconic names like Suspicious Stew, Mooshroom Burgers, Nether Portal Rolls, Hoglins and Lava, and, of course, The Cake. We’ve had a chance to take a look at this book ourselves and it’s definitely a high quality production with plenty of Minecraft lore that should keep any fan satisfied.
42″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $896.99
Today, Amazon has dropped the price of the 2022 LG Evo C2 42″ 4K OLED TV to $896.99. That’s the same price we saw on Black Friday. The 42″ replaces LG’s 48″ as its smallest 4K OLED TV on the market. It performs just as well as its larger sized siblings as a gaming TV, but where it really shines is as a gaming monitor for your PC. The 42″ size fits gaming desks better than the 48″, which admittedly is still a bit too large, especially since most of us sit only a few feet away from our monitors. It has HDMI 2.1 ports and supports 4K @ 120Hz and VRR when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, opr RTX 30 series equipped PC. It also boasts 4:4:4 chroma sampling for clear, sharp text as well as sub-1ms response times, ALLM, and native G-SYNC compatibility for zero tearing and ghosting. The new C2 model introduces native GeForce Now and Stadia streaming support.
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.
Alienware Aurora R14 RTX 3080 PC for $1699.99
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.
Alienware Aurora R14 3060 Ti PC for $1099.99
This is the best price right now for an RTX 3060 Ti gaming PC from Alienware or Dell (it’s even cheaper than the Dell XPS models). Right now you can get an Alienware Aurora R14 gaming PC equipped with an Intel Core i7-12700F CPU and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU for only $1099.99 after $600 in instant savings. The RTX 3060 Ti is about as powerful as the previous generation’s RTX 2080 SUPER; it’s more than powerful enough to handle just about any game out there at up to 1440p or VR gaming.
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.
