Call of Duty- Black Ops 3-sale-01

Amazon has quietly given its Prime members another valuable benefit: discounts on recently released and upcoming video games. Just yesterday we shared a couple of these deals in our daily apps/games roundup. At the time we thought they were just a couple of one-offs. But now we’ve come to learn that these types of deals may be here to discounts cover select video game consoles, accessories, and games that are sold by Amazon direct. There isn’t an easy way to view all the current offers. The only way to identify a video game item as having special Prime pricing is to look for the “Amazon Prime member Savings” blurb (shown above) on each item’s listing.


Even Prime members on a free trial or discounted Student membership qualify for the special pricing. However, you won’t know the exact discount amount until you reach the final page of checkout. That means the advertised price never changes even if the item is eligible for Prime savings. So you’ll need to add the item to your cart and proceed to checkout to see exactly how much the discount is. Here are the best current video game deals for Prime members we’ve found so far:

The third week offerings for Nintendo’s Throwback Sale have just gone public, after last week’s release of Punch-Out!! for Wii U and the prior week’s deal on Super Mario Galaxy 2 for Wii U. Once again, you only have one week to grab a single steeply-discounted Wii U title from Nintendo’s eShop, plus smaller discounts on several Wii U and 3DS releases.

This week’s star attraction is Nintendo’s Wii U version of Metroid Prime: Trilogy, the 2009 Wii collection of Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in one download for $9.99 (reg. $20 digital). Discontinued and previously selling for as much as $300 on disc for the Wii, Metroid Prime: Trilogy is an excellent value for the Wii U. A Wii Remote and Nunchuk are required to play the game. Also available for the next week at reduced prices are:

  • Mario Golf (GBC) for Nintendo 3DS: $2.49 (Reg. $5)
  • Mario Golf World Tour for Nintendo 3DS: $22.49 (Reg. $30)
  • Metroid (NES) for Nintendo 3DS: $3.49 (Reg. $5)
  • Mario Kart 8 for Wii U: $45 (Reg. $60)
  • Super Mario Kart (SNES) for Wii U: $6 (Reg. $8)

Reports have suggested that Nintendo will continue to release additional Wii games such as Sin & Punishment 2 for the Wii U, but it’s unclear whether they’ll be part of the Throwback sale. Some of the Wii ports will no longer require special Wii controllers to play on the Wii U; others (including Super Mario Galaxy 2, Punch-Out!!, and Metroid Prime: Trilogy) unfortunately do.

Check out our Wii U Buyers’ Guide for recommendations on the right Wii U bundles, accessories, and games to purchase, as well as our daily gaming deals for additional discounts. Pre-order deals for Kirby: The Rainbow Curse ($50) and Mario Party 10 ($50) are amongst many we’re currently tracking!
