Why anticipate Prime Day? Resident Evil Village, Amazon Luna and extra video games are already on sale

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day 2021, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Prime Day is Amazon’s two-day sales event on June 21-22, which will be full of deals across the online retail giant’s digital storefront. The sale is so big, however, that some deals are available right now: Resident Evil Village, Ghost of Tsushima and Cyberpunk 2077 are just some of the games on sale. Combine that with promotions running for E3 2021, and there are a ton of deals for gamers. We’ve pulled together some of the biggest discounts available, including the lowest prices we’ve seen on some of the best games out right now.

Where possible, we’ve highlighted the game at a specific price on a specific platform. Keep in mind that some versions of the games listed are currently the same for all platforms, others are different prices on different platforms.

Amazon Luna is the company’s foray into cloud gaming. The controller is required to stream games to mobile devices or Amazon Fire TVs, along with a monthly subscription that starts at $6 to any Prime member. 


Resident Evil Village is the latest entry to the long-running Resident Evil franchise and answered a lot of questions from Resident Evil 7. 

The long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 came out last December, only to face a storm of controversy thanks to a long list of bugs. Months later, many of those buys have been fixed, and at this price, it’s hard to let this deal slide.

One of the best games to come out last year, Ghost of Tsushima has players traveling across the island of Tsushima in 13th century Japan and fighting off the Mongol invaders. 


Assassin’s Creed Valhalla takes players to the ninth century. This time, a Viking warrior gets caught up in the longtime war between the Assassin Brotherhood and Templar Order. 

Square Enix

Outriders have players take the role of superpowered warriors who are humanity’s best hope of surviving extinction. (Note: Xbox Game Pass subscribers can already play this game at no extra charge.)

2K Games

Mafia Definitive Edition is a remake of the 2002 open-world game. Players take the role of Tommy Angelo, who goes from taxi driver to mafia officer during the 1930s. 


Immortals Fenyx Rising was one of the early games released for the next generation of consoles. Players play the part of Fenyx who has to take on the monstrous Typhon from Greek mythology. (Note this was previously $25; it may go back down.)


Nintendo games don’t go on sale often so it’s best to take advantage of them when they do. 


Nintendo Switch Online allows Switch owners to play games online and a family membership allows for up to eight accounts. An annual membership is $35 and for a limited time, comes with a custom 128GB microSD card for free.
