Day 1: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
Each day for the next 12 days, Best Buy is offering major discounts on some of the best video game releases. The first sale is for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for the Nintendo Switch.
Usually $59.99, it's currently on sale for $29.99. And that's not all; it also comes with an additional gift. If you purchase Skyward Sword HD, you'll also get Skyward Sword HD Tech Decals for free.
One important thing you should note about these sales is that they are ONE DAY ONLY. After the clock strikes midnight, you have 24 hours to snap up that day's deal before it is gone. Don't dawdle.
We'll keep you posted on every deal for the next 12 days as soon as they go live.

Day 3: Astro Gaming A10 Wired Headsets

The PS5 Standard Edition of Deathloop is currently on sale for $10. That's a whopping $50 discount. This sale is a great way to start expanding your PS5 library without breaking the bank.
Day 5: FIFA 23
The FIFA World Cup has been pretty exciting so far. Japan pulled off an upset over Spain and sent Germany home, and South Korea sent Portugal packing.
If you like playing FIFA as much as watching it, Day 5 of Best Buy's 12 Days of Gaming event has a treat for you: More than 50% off sales on FIFA 23 on multiple platforms.

Day 7: Call of Duty Vanguard
It's my duty to inform you about Best Buy's 12 Days of Gaming, Day 7 deal.
Today's deal is for Call of Duty Vanguard. I know Vanguard is far from the most well-received entry in the series (For good reason), but if you ever wanted to pick it up, now's a good time to do so.
Day 8: The Legend of Zelda and Metroid Amiibos
Day 8 of Best Buy's 12 Days of Gaming sale is for the amiibo fans out there.
Best Buy has two $20 amiibo sales today. The first is a Zelda & Loftwing amiibo from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for $4.99.
The second sale is for a Metroid Dread two-pack containing Samus and E.M.M.I. for $9.99.
Day 9: Gears 5
Day 9 of Best Buy's 12 Days of Gaming sale is here! Is anyone a fan of Gears of War?
Gears 5 Standard Edition for Xbox One, Xbox Series X is on sale right now. Get the fifth Gears game for a mere $4.99.
Granted, Gears 5 is considered by most to be the weakest installment of the franchise (Accurate statement). But most people probably spend more money on their daily cup of coffee. Or doughnuts.
At the cost of only 5 bucks, I say it's at least worth a try.
Day 10: Arcade1Up The Simpsons 30th Edition Arcade
Best Buy's 12 Days of Gaming Sales Event is almost over, and the deals are getting interesting!
Day 10's deal is a trip down nostalgia lane for many of us. And for those interested in beat-em-ups, you've got a chance to get one of the 90s greatest. And in its original form.
For today only, you can purchase an Arcade1Up The Simpsons 30th Edition Arcade cabinet for $274.99. That's a whopping discount off its standard $699.99 price tag.
The cabinet also comes with a matching stool and Tin, free of charge. Anyone looking to bolster their home arcade will be interested in this deal.
Day 11: Just Dance – Code in a Box 2023 Edition
We're in the home stretch on Best Buy's 12 Days of Gaming Sales Event. Day 11's sale is a family-friendly affair.
Usually, you want to get up and dance when something good starts, not when it ends. But hey.
Day 12: Free Xbox Series S Controller
All good things must come to an end eventually. And today is the end of Best Buy's 12 Days of Gaming Event. But they're going out with a bang.
For the final sale of the event, customers can get a free Xbox Series S controller. You have to purchase an Xbox Series S Bundle first, however.
By purchasing the Microsoft Xbox Series S 512 GB Console – Gilded Hunter Bundle for $299.99, you'll get an additional wireless controller (Usually $59.99) at no extra cost. But that's not all.
The Gilded Hunter Bundle contains several bonuses for Fortnite, Rocket League, and Fall Guys. For Fortnite, you get the Hunter Saber outfit, Saber's Fang Pickaxe, and 1,000 V Bucks.
In Rocket League, you'll receive the Fennec Car, Huntress Decal, Orange Hexphase Boost, and Titanium Astro CSX Wheels. You'll also get 1,000 Rocket League Credits to use however you wish.
Last but not least, in Fall Guys, you get the Falltron Ultra Costume, Falltronic Emote, and Falltronic Nameplate. And 1,000 Show-Bucks.
It's been a great event Best Buy. Hope to see you same time next year!
