Today Amazon is offering price drops on two of the best controllers for the Xbox Series S|X consoles. The Forza Horizon 5 controller is one of the best looking controllers out there and has a few quality of life upgrades like textured controller and trigger grips. The Xbox Elite Series 2 adds another layer of adjustability for those of you who require more precision. In other deal news, the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo is back in stock on Amazon, the new 31-disc Middle Earth 4K and Blu-ray Ultimate Collector’s Edition is up for preorder, the WD SN850 SSD with heatsink (the most highly recommended SSD upgrade for your PS5) is now available at the WD Store, and more.
Forza 5 Limited Edition Xbox Controller
This wicked looking Xbox controller went up for preorder last week for $74.99. Today, it’s on sale on Amazon for $69. This is one of the best new Xbox controllers out on the market. There’s much attention to detail in this controller, like the transparent yellow finish with candy colored splatter, custom-colored, visible rumble motor and lighting effects, color shifting hybrid D-pad, asymmetrical thumbsticks in different bold colors, and textured controller grips.
Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller
This is the controller to get if you want the most precise and customizable Xbox controller on the market. This professional-grade controller features adjustable tension thumbsticks, shorter hair trigger locks, wraparound textured grips, interchangeable thumbsticks and paddle shapes, custom profiles saved on your controller itself, and included USB Type C cable with charging dock. It boasts up to 40 hours of battery life and is compatible with the Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, and PC.
Zelda & Loftwing amiibo
This amiibo is finally available on Amazon. It’s been sold out on Amazon for a while while occasionally coming back in stock at other vendors, but scalpers were selling this at way higher than MSRP. Let’s hope Amazon keeps it in stock for the long term. If you’ve been wanting this amiibo to round out your collection, better to get it now just in case.
Preorder the Middle Earth 6-Film Ultimate Collector’s Edition (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital)
This impressive Middle Earth Collector’s Edition includes both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies over a whopping 31 discs.

You also get digital HD copies for free, and they are compatible with MoviesAnywhere so you can merge it into your digital library. As far as extras go, you get a Special Features Blu-ray disc, a 64-page booklet, and 7 travel poster art cards. All the discs are stored in collectible foil sleeves.

It’s blazing fast drive with transfer speeds rated at up to 7,000 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface and it comes preinstalled with a heatsink. It’s also confirmed by Western Digital themselves to be compatible with the PS5.

Intel Gamer Days Deal: Dell XPS Intel Core i7 RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $1499
True high end gaming on a budget. There is one of the best deals we’ve seen for an RTX 3060 Ti equipped PC. The RTX 3060 Ti is a very powerful video card; it’s better than the previous generation’s RTX 2080! It’s a big upgrade from the 3060 non-Ti model and the one to get if you’re going to play games at resolutions of 1440p or higher. This is the best Intel Gamer Days deal that Dell is offering so far, but there are a couple of other good deals as well.
Intel Gamer Days Deal: CyberpowerPC Intel Core i7 RTX 3080 Gaming PC for $2199
If you play games at 1440p or less, you can get away with an RTX 3060 or 3070, but if you want to game in 4K, then you’re going to want to splurge for the RTX 3080 video card. It’s the first card that really lets you play games at 3840×2160 without worrying about your framerate. This CyberpowerPC is equipped with an RTX 3080 video card, an unlocked Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and both SSD and HDD storage.
Lenovo Intel Gamer Days Sale: Save on Legion Gaming Laptops and Desktop PCs
Lenovo’s “Legion” series of gaming PCs and laptops offer the latest and greatest gaming performance at a very reasonable cost. They’re equipped with the newest RTX 30 series video cards, which offer huge speed gains compared to the previous generation’s RTX 20 series cards, along with new technology like DLSS 2.0 (very useful) and ray tracing (not as much). Alongside these new GPUs are your choice of either AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series or Intel’s Rocket Lake/Tiger Lake processors. Lenovo also offers one of the best customer service experiences compared to other prebuilt PC makers, which is especially important if you haven’t built the PC yourself. Lenovo’s sale events can be hard to navigate, so we’ve conveniently rounded up a list of the best Legion deals going on right now.
New Lenovo Legion AMD Ryzen RTX 30 Series Gaming Laptops Also Discounted
The Intel Gamer Days Sale obviously covers Intel equipped gaming laptops and PCs, but that doesn’t mean AMD is out for the count. Lenovo has AMD Ryzen 5000-series gaming laptops that are just as powerful as the latest Intel Core i7 processors, are equipped with the same RTX 30 series video cards, and are also marked down to a very competitive price.
$2,100 Off Lenovo ThinkPad 15″ 4K RTX 3080 Laptop
Lenovo ThinkPad laptops are known for their best-in-class ruggedness and reliability, and even if it ever breaks down, Lenovo offers the best customer service in the business. Usually, that level of build quality and support usually comes at a steep price. Add an RTX 30 series video card to the mix and you’d expect a cost that most people would balk at. Take this laptop for example. It’s retail price is nearly $5,000. However, there is a coupon today that drops the price way down to under $2900. If you’re looking to purchase a ThinkPad that’s got the power to do some serious gaming, you won’t find a price like this anytime soon.

The Warcraft Edition features gold accents, laser-etched runes on the LED meter and base, voice modulation with Warcraft presets, and hundreds of Warcraft HD audio samples.
New Release: Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset with More Storage, Same Price
The Oculus Quest 2 has so far been the best value when it comes to VR gaming. It’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than its competitors, it has phenomenal tracking, it doesn’t need to be tethered to a PC, and it boasts a huge library of games (even Half Life: Alyx is easily playable on the Quest 2). It’s also the best VR headset for Beat Saber. Now, Oculus has re-released its Oculus Quest 2 VR headset with double the storage (128GB vs 64GB) for the exact same price. There’s even less of a reason now to pick something else.
