Preorder Nintendo Direct First-Party Games
We got a pretty great Nintendo Direct earlier this week, featuring a ton of new first-party Nintendo Switch games that already have release dates for 2023. You can preorder all of these games right now, including new 2D platformer Super Mario Bros. Wonder, a remake of Super Mario RPG, WarioWare Move It, Pikmin 4, the physical edition of Pikmin 1 + 2, Detective Pikachu Returns, and Everybody 1-2-Switch. It’s a pretty great first-party lineup for a console in it’s seventh full year, and I personally can’t wait for the pair of Mario titles coming at the end of the year.

More Deals From This Week
Samsung EVO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC Card for $34.43
Nintendo Switch Compatible
Amazon has the Samsung EVO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC card for only $34.43, making it the lowest price currently for a Micro SDXC card of that size. It boasts a U3 A2 speed rating, which is faster than most Micro SDXC cards, including the official Nintendo Switch ones. It doesn’t make any difference for the Nintendo Switch itself, since it will throttle any Micro SDXC card down to U1 speeds). However, it will be useful if you ever want to swap it down the road to your smartphone, GoPro, camera, or any device that supports the faster speeds.
Valve Index VR Full Kit (Gamestop Refurbished) for $599.99
Gamestop has preowned units of the Valve Index VR full kit for only $599.99. This kit sells for $999.99 new at Valve. It includes the VR headset, a pair of knuckles controllers, band two base stations. The Valve Index is still considered one of the best VR headsets out on the market. The headset is comfortable, the controllers are very accurate, and the 2880×1600 combined optics over up to 144Hz refresh rate and a 120-degree FOV. At $400 off retail price I think it’s worth it.
HP OMEN 40L RTX 4070 Gaming PC for $1379.99
HP is offering an HP OMEN 40L gaming PC equipped with a GeForce RTX 4070 GPU for only $1379.99 after a $520 off instant discount. You’ll have to follow the very simple step below to get this config.
The GeForce RTX 4070 matches the performance of the older RTX 3080 with additional features. That means the RTX 4070 can still easily hold its own in any game at 1080p and 1440p. This would be my GPU of choice for comfortable 1440p gaming. Because it’s a current gen 40 series card, the RTX 4070 also supports DLSS 3.0, which is DLSS 2.0 plus frame generation. For games that support DLSS 3.0 (like Diablo 4, Jedi Survivor, or Hogwarts Legacy) benefit from noticeably higher fps.
Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 8 RTX 4080 PC for $2157.59
Lenovo is offering a new Legion 7i Gen 8 gaming PC with 13th gen Intel Core i7-13700KF Raptor Lake CPU, GeForce RTX 4080 GPU, 16GB of DDR5-5600MHz RAM, and a 512GB SSD for only $2157.59. That’sabout $300 less than what we saw during the Memorial Day Sale. The RTX 4080 is a powerful card that’s capable of running any game out there at 60+fps in 4K. It’s about 50% more powerful than the RTX 3080 Ti. Check out our RTX 4080 review.
Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 8 RTX 4070 Ti PC for $1636.79
Lenovo is also offering a new Legion 5 Gen 8 gaming PC with the latest AMD Ryzen 7 7700X CPU, GeForce RTX 4070 Ti GPU, 16GB of DDR5-5600MHz RAM, and a 1TB SSD for $1636.79. That’s $350 less expensive than the best RTX 4070 Ti gaming PC deal we saw during the Memorial Day Sale. The RTX 4070 Ti performs better than the RTX 3090 and has the benefit of DLSS 3.0. It’s good enough to run games in 4K although obviously not as comfortably as the 4080. It is an outstanding card for 1440p gaming.
Xbox Series X Forza 5 Horizon Bundle for $509.99
Today Dell is offering the Xbox Series X Forza Horizon 5 console bundle for only $509.99. The bundle retails for $559.99 and that’s what it is selling for everywhere else. You’re essentially buying the Xbox Series X and getting Forza Horizon 5 as well as some extra DLC for only $10 more. Ignore the fact that Dell only shows a vanilla pic of an Xbox Series X. When you add it to cart, the full specs will read “XBOX SERIES X FORZA BUNDLE”.
50″ Insignia F30 4K Fire TV for $199.99
Amazon has the 50″ Insignia F30 4K Fire TV for only $199.99. Best Buy also has it for the same price. This is the best price historically for this TV. This TV has an MSRP of $349.99 and we had previously seen it on sale for as low as $229.99. If you’re looking for a TV that offers a decently big size, 4K resolution, a good smart TV interface and, most importantly, at a nearly throwaway price, then te F30 should be at the top of your list.
Alienware Aurora RTX 4090 Gaming PC for $3099.99
Dell is offering an Alienware Aurora R15 gaming PC equipped with the top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 4090 GPU for only $3099.99. This is easily one of the most powerful gaming PCs you can get from Alienware and it’s what you want if you want to play any game with every setting (including ray tracing) turned up in glorious 4K. The RTX 4090 is far and away the most powerful video card you can get right now, leaving competitors like AMD’s latest Radeon RX 7900 XTX in the dust. This R15 is also equipped with a 240mm all-in-one liquid cooler for the CPU, as well as three more 120mm system fans. The Cryo-Tech edition offers even better thermal performance and a swankier RGB-lit design.
Arozzi Milano Gaming Chair for $129
The Milano gaming chair features a racing-style design with a sporty black and red color scheme. It even has those holes in the headrest you find in racing cars to accommodate multi-point harnesses. In terms of comfort, the Milano features PU leather with foam upholstery. Arozzi lists a density of 50 kg/m³ for the seat and 40 kg/m³ for the back. You also get an adjustable lumbar pillow and extra padded armrests and headrest. This chair doesn’t recline very far (12 degree tilt), but it does have a rocking function. The Milano gaming chair has a weight limit of 210 pounds. If you weigh more than that, then this isn’t the chair for you.
Silicon Power 2TB PS5 SSD with Heatsink for $97.87
Includes built-in heatsink!
It’s happened, folks. A 2TB PS5-compatible SSD has broken past the $100 price barrier. Amazon Prime members can get the Silicon Power XS70 SSD, which include a robust aluminum heatsink, for only $98.97. The aluminum heatsink is still slim enough to fit in the PS5 without obstruction. It boasts transfer speeds of up to 7300MB/s read and 6800MB/s write, comfortably faster than the 5500MB/s minimum recommended requirement. It actually performs a little better than the Crucial P5 Plus, the original WD Black SN850, and the Samsung 980 Pro, although that won’t make a difference in your PS5.
