It’s time to buy all the gifts for your loved ones! If you’ve waited this long to pick up presents for everyone, you might be stressed out. Don’t worry, though! Today we’re bringing you some of the best discounts on everything from new handheld systems to classic games.

The Legend of Zelda: Game & Watch

Nintendo’s Game & Watch systems are a charming part of video game history. If you’re a fan of LCD-powered handheld systems and classic games, you should check out the Legend of Zelda Game & Watch system. This endearing little handheld is a collectible device pre-loaded with three Legend of Zelda titles.

The Game & Watch system includes the original game in the Legend of Zelda series. It also has the divisive sequel, The Adventure of Link. Perhaps the best part is the inclusion of the Game Boy game Link’s Awakening, which is considered one of the greatest games ever made by some fans.

You can get this adorable Game & Watch device from Target today for just $50. It makes a perfect gift for the gamer on your shopping list!

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla

Next-gen games retail for as much as $70 when they’re first released, but savvy deal-hunters can find PS5 and Series X games on sale for much less than that. For instance, you can grab a copy of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla today from GameStop for just $15. Valhalla is one of the prettiest games on next-gen hardware and offers up hours of content for players who love to explore every corner of the map.

The newest entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise stars Eivor, a Viking warrior on a quest to conquer the Saxons. Players explore England’s Dark Ages, battling enemies and completing quests to expand their settlements.

Amazon Digital Xbox Sale

Amazon has an assortment of Xbox digital games for sale right now. Usually, steep discounts like these are only for physical copies of games. Today’s event extends the savings to download-only players, too. This is stellar news for Xbox Series S owners since the compact system doesn’t sport a disc drive.

Some of the Amazon sale highlights include NBA 2K22 and Rider’s Republic. The most eye-catching deal we’ve seen yet is for Far Cry 6, the latest entry in Ubisoft’s open-world first-person shooter. You can pick up the sprawling game for just $36 today, which is nearly half its retail price.
