Zelda Stories June 14, 2016

As usual, Nintendo’s E3 2016 presence came by way of a special Treehouse Live event today. After massive showcases from Microsoft and Sony yesterday, it’s all about Zelda now. Maybe one the of most anticipated titles in recent memory, Nintendo showed all sorts of new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild footage in glorious HD, along with more on Pokemon Sun/Moon.

A few weeks ago listings for a new batch of Nintendo Select titles were leaked by a Canadian retailer, followed by the official announcement and pricing details. Set for release on March 11th (this Friday), the new Select titles are now up for pre-order on Amazon and Best Buy. Better yet, the games are eligible for Amazon’s 20% off pre-orders and new releases promo. It’s not often we see first party Nintendo games go on sale this low, so it is nice to see some of the company’s solid library titles come available at the discounted rate.

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 stay.amazon-prime-video-game-dealThese 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:
