Don’t miss out on crucial Amazon Prime Day PS5 updates on where to find stock, cheap games, headsets, and more.

The best Prime Day PS5 deals are still going as we enter day two for the summer sales event. While we still hold out for that elusive stock drop of the console itself, there are still loads of great opportunities to save on big-name games and really high-quality and essential accessories. 
As a result, and continuing where we left off yesterday we’re continuing to gather everything PS5-shaped and PS5-relevant that Prime Day has going for it – of course,  including those all-important links to where you might be able to find a PS5 sometime in the next few days. It might be the best opportunity of the summer to find PS5 stock at Amazon, but we just can’t be sure until it happens – we’ve all seen this movie before. However, there’s an awful lot of buzz going around that Amazon will be getting the new Ratchet & Clank PS5 bundle online soon, so keep an eye on stock via the links below and bookmark this page to be sure you don’t miss out.
Of all the big online retailers, Amazon has been awfully quiet this year, so we’re (quietly) confident it’s been stockpiling them for a special occasion as it certainly has the chops to get a large supply in from Sony. And announcing a massive Prime Day PS5 sale would be a huge draw to the store today. Otherwise, peruse and potentially purchase some of the best gear and games we’ve rounded up below – remember that two is, naturally, the time when deals start to get sold out, so you’ll need to act sharpish if you’ve been eyeing anything up.
But, even if the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition consoles don’t turn up, there are loads of juicy discounts to sink our teeth into with PS5 Prime Day deals on games, some of the best gaming TVs, controllers, headsets, external hard drives and SSDs, and more. Actually, the Prime Day TV deals could be the headline act of the sale, if we’re being frank.
Try these PS5 stores on Prime Day too
It’s certainly worth checking for a PS5 resupply throughout Prime Day at as many stores as you can. Amazon has briefly had smatterings of stock in June, but very much in a blink and you’ll miss it kind of way.
PS5 – check at AmazonThis is the most popular version of the PS5 as it comes with a disc drive, allowing you to play disc-based games and enjoy the world of 4K blu-rays too.View Deal
PS5 Digital Edition – check at AmazonThe cheaper version, but at the cost of not being able to play disc-based games or other media. You’ll have to buy games direct from the online PSN store. We often find prices tend to be much higher here so that saving is soon consumed. If you’re happy with a digital-only future though, this is the one for you. Both consoles come with 825GB of storage.View Deal
PS5 DualSense + Accessories Bundle | £248.37
£199.99 at AmazonIt’s very much worth pointing out this PS5 accessory bundle at the top of this round-up for our UK readers. This has everything you could possibly need to complete your PS5 setup, including an additional DualSense Controller, Charging Station, Pulse 3D Headset, HD Camera, and Media Remote, plus you’re getting 20% off this complete package.View Deal

Prime Day PS5 controller deals
Getting an extra PS5 controller on Prime Day is top of our to-do lists. With any luck, the recently announced Midnight Black and Cosmic Red variants will get involved. Although given they’re only being released June 18, it’s unlikely. The original white model on the other hand might get a deal, or perhaps a game bundle. 
So far there are no third-party controllers to choose from that will play your PS5 games. Most third-party PS4 controllers are compatible with PS5 for PS4 games, but if you’re looking for a next-gen spare then the official DualSense controller is your only option.

Prime Day PS5 headset deals
Unlike the controllers, there are lots of options in the audio department, as shown by our roundup of the best PS5 headsets. Sony’s official PS5 Pulse 3D headset is by far the most coveted option, thanks to the affordable price and PS5-friendly aesthetic, not to mention killer 3D audio. We’ve put together some of our other PS5 headset recommendations along with today’s best prices below. We’ve tested all of these models and can highly recommend them. Check out our guide above if you’d like to learn more.
Corsair HS70 Pro Wireless | $100
$84.99 at AmazonWho says you can’t find a high-end PlayStation wireless headset for under $100 bucks? Well, Corsair seems to agree. With what the company claims to have a 40ft range – and 16 hours of playtime on a single charge – you can rest assured that this model has enough grunt to be good to go.
View Deal
Corsair HS60 Pro | $70
$47.49 at AmazonSimply put, another budget-friendly Corsair headset that works just as well on PC as it does on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5. It features all the same great tech that makes Corsairheadsets some of the best, and if you’re looking for a sub-$50 headset then this is a fine contender.View Deal
HyperX Cloud Official PlayStation Licensed | $80
$49.99 at AmazonThe company didn’t forget about the other side. If you’re more of a fan of the blue camp, then there’s little to complain about for the price with the build quality and memory foam pads on this model. It won’t break the bank, but it’s unlikely to light the world on fire either; if you’re after something for your PS4/5, you could find worse.View Deal
HyperX Cloud Flight S Wireless | $160
$119 at AmazonThis is a very similar headset to the CloudX, but it’s geared towards the PC and PlayStation crowd instead. All the same solid features are present here, including 30-hour battery playtime and even wireless charging (the latter being an addition scarcely seen in wireless models at this price point).View Deal
JBL Quantum 300 Wired |$80
$39.95 at AmazonWe’ll make this short and sweet: ditch the wireless functionality and save 50% on the same great sound and feel of the Quantum range. If you don’t mind being plugged in and can live without sophisticated noise-canceling, give them a look.View Deal
HyperX Cloud Stinger Core – PlayStation 5 | $40 $24.99 at AmazonA budget version of the Hyper X Cloud for PS5, the biggest concession is in the plastic construction and more limited levels of noise canceling. It has all the essentials, but don’t expect the world for under $30. View Deal
Razer Kraken X Wired | $50
$32.99 at AmazonSharing many of the features of its bigger sister models, the X line’s only real concession is the smaller 40mm audio drivers and a plastic construction as opposed to the fabric mesh on the more expensive variants. It’s worth noting that the X cans are a fair bit lighter too if you prefer something that sits easier on your skull. It’s also available in a black/blue design for the same deal price and white for $34.99.View Deal
SteelSeries Arctis 5 RGB Wired | $99
$69.99 at AmazonThere’s little doubt in our minds that this headset emanates class. It works out of the box with PS5 and PS4. Another important distinction would be the clear bidirectional microphone for clarity during intensive gaming sessions and the adaptive RBG lighting strips around the cups.

Prime Day PS5 external hard drives
A recent update to the PS5 now means you can transfer those massive PS5 install files over to external hard drives to free up space on that tiny internal SSD.

Here are some of our favorites from our best PS5 external hard drive guide.

Prime Day PS5 SSD deals
As things stand today, the only PS5 SSD options out there are external ones. Sony is planning a system update in the summer that will allow you to add an internal PS5 SSD to the currently vacant expansion bay. For now, let’s keep things external. These will let you store PS5 games, but not run them. Your PS4 games will get similarly fast load times as if you’d installed them to the PS5 itself and you still get any Game Boost features like improved resolution and frame rates as seen on the likes of the recently-patched The Last of Us Part II.
Moving any games between one of these SSDs and the internal storage is so much quicker than regular external HDDs like the ones we mentioned above. Of course, this means SSDs are more expensive, but Prime Day SSD deals are a thing every year.

Prime Day PS5 game deals
Sony’s first party games on PS5 started out with massive prices at launch, but Prime Day is a great opportunity to find a discount on these top PS5 games like Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and more. Third-party PS5 titles are much more likely to get a decent deal, so look out for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk (PS5 upgrade coming soon) and more.

Prime Day PS5 accessories
There will be ample opportunity to treat yourself with some discounted prices on the best PS5 accessories on Prime Day outside the aforementioned items too. Charging docks for the PS5 controller are a solid bet for sure.
The official one from Sony has been hard to find since the console was released, but there are a lot of third-party options out there, especially on Amazon. We can’t claim to have tested them all by any means, so we’d dive into those user-reviews and star ratings on the third-party ones if you’re not sure, with the bad ratings in particular usually being a good place to find out if the build quality is a bit shoddy. 
Charging docks can be a bit overkill though. Why have a chunky piece of plastic taking up space near your console when sometimes just a long charging cable will do instead. There are lots of options out there that will let you charge and play at the same time. Honestly, until Sony announced those new DualSense colors, a lot of us here at GamesRadar were content using a long cable instead of having a spare DualSense charged and good to go. We’ve got to have the new Cosmic Red pad though.
Other accessories like the media remote and official camera feel very much optional to the PS5 experience. With most TVs covering you for streaming and disc-based media being on the way out, a dedicated remote feels like overkill (just use the DualSense). The camera hasn’t really taken off yet either. But the Prime Day PS5 deals might get you a cheeky discount.
PS5 DualSense + Accessories Bundle | £248.37
£199.99 at AmazonGetting us off to an excellent start in the UK is this Prime Day PS5 deal on the whole caboodle of accessories for the console. This bundle has everything: an additional DualSense Controller, Charging Station, Pulse 3D Headset, HD Camera, and Media Remote. All in one hit and with 20% off!View Deal
