Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and with most parts of the US still stuck inside and social distancing because of the coronavirus, this holiday weekend is sure to feel different than previous years. Whether you have a three-day weekend ahead of you or still have to work on Monday–our condolences in advance–there are plenty of online deals available as retailers kick off their annual Memorial Day sales, with tech brands like Razer, HyperX, and Lenovo offering some great discounts on gaming headsets, controllers, laptops, and more. On Friday, GameStop and Best Buy kicked off their big Memorial Day sales as well, with discounts running all weekend long and into Monday. It’s the perfect time to stock up on gaming goodies for the next few months.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best Memorial Day deals available so far. It’s a great time to stock up on PC gaming accessories, a new gaming laptop, or a 4K smart TV as several brands are discounting these products right now. We’ve also curated a list of the best game deals worth taking advantage of this weekend across Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with steep discounts on fantastic titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, Control, Borderlands 3, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
