(Pocket-lint) - Amazon Prime Day is fast approaching and that should mean you'll be able to grab yourself some great discounts on Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One games, accessories and more.
The Amazon Prime Day sales occur each summer, with the latest to take place across 12-13 July, so it's worth keeping an eye out for some bargain offers even on the build-up.
Here's everything you need to know about the Xbox deals to expect on Prime Day 2022.
When is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day 2022 has been confirmed for 12-13 July.
The Prime Day sales are complementary to retailer's Black Friday sales and give Amazon the opportunity to move on stock in a mid-year sale and give you the chance to grab a bargain.
What Xbox deals can I expect on Prime Day?
Amazon tends to have great gaming deals across the board, especially on gaming headsets and the games themselves. We don't think there will be many console bundle offers though, considering the Xbox One is all but discontinued and there have been stock shortages for the Xbox Series X since its launch.
Xbox Series S has been readily available, but is already atrractively priced.
Perhaps the best deal for many will be on Xbox Game Pass, which is generally discounted for Prime Day. We'll keep you informed.
Do I need to be a Prime member?
Amazon Prime Day is exclusive to Prime members, which means you will need to either be a paid member of Amazon Prime or sign up for a free trial for the Prime Day period.
There's a 30-day trial for new subscribers and you can cancel before the first payment is due. Many don't though as the benefits of full memberships are plenty - free delivery, Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading and more.
