Amazon Prime Day is here, and considering how much marketing the company put behind the big event, it’s been pretty underwhelming so far if you were looking for some big game-related deals.
This morning, Amazon discounted Sports Champions 2 for PlayStation 3 down to $9.99, but we can’t imagine many gamers looking for a discount for this particular game. As of this writing, Battlefield Hardline is currently discounted by 58% off, making it $24.99, Borderlands - The Handsome Jack Collection is selling for $34.99, Evolve is down to $24.99, and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is down to $32.99. That’s not the only Final Fantasy game to go on sale as Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PS4 is also on sale for $34.99.

We’ll be keeping an eye on what other deals will be popping up throughout the day, so be sure to check back regularly to learn what is being sold on Amazon Prime Day and when. Hopefully the sales only get better as the day progresses as it feels a bit underwhelming so far, but Amazon could be saving some of the bigger sales for later in the day.

It'd be cool if you expanded the shown deals to TV's and similar "gaming peripherals".
Good point! I'll see what I can find.
Really wish those ssd's were going for cheaper. Newegg has been having them at roughly those prices for a while now.
Wow, thanks, I almost bought the primse sale one. Is the samsung one just as good? I need an upgrade to my 60gb ssd
The 840's had issues, I think the 850's are ok but I don't recall if it was a work around for the issue or if they actually fixed it.
Was this early on? Because I have had my 840 for over a year with no problems.
No it was something that shows up late, had to do with an error in TRIM IIRC.
it's a fairly broad problem that may be hard to notice for some - short version, IIRC it's that old data becomes *extremely* slow to access after not being touched for a while.
Mine are two years oldand I just got bit by that firmware bug. A firmware update resolved my problems.
I always have kept that up to date, so maybe that's why I havent noticed any issues.
This is cool, thanks for doing it!
is the Harmony worth it if I have an older model that still works fine?
I love the Harmony One. This deal includes the RF Control, which allows the remote to work if you have a closed cabinet. What I like most about the RF Control is that you can also use your phone if you can't find your remote for some reason.
any upcoming gaming laptops?
They had a ridiculously expensive alienware for a more average price (MSRP at like $3000 was down to $1800).
