Check out the new hot daily deals for today, including PS5 and Xbox Series X sightings, $30 off the new and improved WD Black SN850X PS5 compatible SSD, $300 off the 48″ LG OLED gaming monitor (not to be confused with the TVs), an ASUS TUF Dash RTX 3060 equipped gaming laptop for $999, and more.
PS5 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
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 online today at Walmart, so if you’ve been waiting to pick up the best Xbox, get it now and have it delivered within the next two weeks.
WD Black SN850X 1TB NVMe Gaming SSD with Heatsink for $149.99
The SN850X is the successor to the super popular but aging WD Black SN850 SSD. The SN850X has newer flash chips (BiCS5 vs BiCS4) and an updated firmware, which combined offer improved sequential and random read/write speeds. For PC gamers, there’s also an updated Game Mode 2.0 utility that’s designed to tune the SSD for better performance during gaming sessions. If you already own a WD SN850 SSD, there’s not enough of a performance increase here to justify an upgrade. However, if you’re in the market for a brand new SSD, at this price I’d recommend going with the SN850X over the SN850.
$300 Off the New 48″ LG UltraGear 48GP900-B 4K HDR OLED Gaming Monitor, Now $1197.49
For those of you who love LG OLED TVs (for good reason) but don’t like the idea of using a TV for a computer monitor, there’s now an answer. LG has released its first UltraGear OLED gaming monitor. At first glance, the 48GP900 with its 48″ LG WOLED 10-bit color HDR display seems very similar to the 48″ LG C1 OLED TV. The panel is very similar, but there are some key differences. Instead of the semi glossy coating found on the OLED TV, the 48GP900 features an anti-glare low reflective coating that is undoubtedly a better fit for close up monitor usage. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks the built-in Smart TV interface. It does carry over the HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K @ 120Hz compatiblity for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, as well as VRR and G-SYNC support, but the 120Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138Hz when used as a PC monitor. Last and certainly least important of all, there is subtle RGB backlighting on the rear of the monitor that isn’t present on the OLED TVs. This is one of the best gaming monitors you’ll find on the market right now.
ASUS TUF Dash 15″ Intel Core i7 Alder Lake RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop for $999.99
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.
48% Off OnePlus 9 5G Unlocked Smartphone
The OnePlus 9 has an MSRP of $730, but today Amazon has it for almost 50% off. The OnePlus 9 offers great specs for a sub $400 5G phone. It boasts a massive 6.5″ 2400×1080 120Hz display, Snapdragon 888 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 65W warp charging capability, and Android 11. The OnePlus 9 uses a triple lens system that was co-developed by Hasseblad. It features a 48MP main camera, 50MP ultra-wide camera, and 2MP monochrome lens for all kinds of impromptu photo sessions.
65″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1797
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.
MSI GeForce RTX 3080 GPU for $729.99
The MSI “Gaming Z Trio” GeForce RTX 3080 GPU is the least expensive RTX 3080 variant on Amazon right now at a solid price of $729.99. The RTX 3080 really doesn’t need any introduction. This is the de facto card to get if you plan to run current generation games at 4K, since it’s up to 50% faster than the previous generation RTX 2080 SUPER and doesn’t command the exorbitant price of the RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3090 (both of which are a mere 3%-5% faster in real world performance). It has an HDMI 2.1 port for passing through 4K @ 120Hz, which it has the power to drive even with resource hungry games like Elden Ring.
Apple iPad 10.2″ 64GB for $279
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.
Dell S2721DGF 27″ 1440p GSYNC 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. It’s also FreeSync Premium Pro and G-SYNC compatible.
Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for $999.99
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.
Preorder the Sega Genesis Mini 2 from Amazon JP
This is one the only ways to get your hands on a Sega Genesis Mini 2 preorder, which releases in late October. This is the new and improved version of the Sega Genesis Mini that was released back in 2019, with better hardware, a small footprint based on the Sega Genesis Model 2, and and over 50 preloaded games including Sonic the Hedgehog CD, Shining Force CD, Virtua Racing and more (not all games have been announced). Note that there will be a $21.99 overseas shipping charge.
Arcade1Up Street Fighter II Big Blue Cabinet
This Arcade1Up Streetfighter II “Big Blue” Arcade Cabinet normally sells for $600, but Walmart has it on sale today for only $399.99. Unlike most other Arcade1Up cabinets, this package includes a matching stool and a themed riser. The Arcade1Up Street Fighter II cabinet is a 3:4 replica of the arcade original, making it approximately 4 feet tall. That riser raises the height by another 1 foot, giving you the option of both sitting and standing play. Also included is a light-up marquee, light-up deck protector, and a Street Fighter themed stool. If you don’t have a buddy around to play with, you can hop onto the live WiFi (no subscription required) to play with other remote Arcade1Up players. 12 games are pre-loaded including several editions of Street Fighter II, Super Puzzle Fighter, and Darkstalkers.
40% Off HBO Max When You Prepay For a Year
Game of Thrones’ House of the Dragon Premieres August 21
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 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 32GB and 64GB Both on Sale
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.
