Amazon Prime now offers 20 percent off new game releases

Amazon is making it cheaper for Prime members to play the latest video games. As part of a new benefit of Amazon Prime, the company is offering those with a subscription a 20 percent discount on new game releases. The deal covers any physical game (i.e. no digital downloads) and is available from the time the game is available to preorder through two weeks after it launches. The deal doesn't cover games that are already discounted more than 20 percent, or those bundled with a console, and Amazon notes that the savings are applied automatically at checkout — so you might not see the discount initially. The program is similar to Best Buy's gamers club, which also offers 20 percent savings on new releases, though of course Amazon Prime offers a lot more than just deals on video games.
