Amazon Prime Day Deals 2022

Last updated: 12JUL2022

Hi everyone, here is a roundup of Amazon Prime Day deals. I’ll update this as I find more deals, please share in the comments below if you find any too! Please note that these are affiliate links, so I may earn a small commission on your purchases at no extra cost to you.

We’ll start with storage. The WD Black hard drive is great for Xbox or PlayStation consoles, and a great price. I am listing a few varieties of SD cards; the Samsung Pro Endurance are prized for their very long lifespan, and the SanDisk Extreme cards are faster than the Ultra cards. That speed difference won’t really be noticeable on retro handhelds, so I would recommend the lower priced option for those devices.

5TB WD Black Game Drive ($99):
2TB SanDisk Portable SSD ($189):
1TB SanDisk Extreme MicroSD ($151):
1TB SanDisk Ultra MicroSD ($109):
512GB SanDisk Ultra MicroSD ($47):
256GB Samsung Pro Endurance ($39):
256GB Sandisk Extreme MicroSD ($35):
256GB SanDisk Ultra MicroSD ($27):
256GB Samsung Evo Select ($26):
128GB Samsung Pro Endurance ($19):
128GB Samsung Evo Select ($13):

Each of the controllers I have listed below I have tested (and have videos on!), and I think each of them are solid options, especially at these prices. But the KingKong 2 Pro price is really great.

GulitKit KingKong 2 Pro ($55):
8Bitdo Arcade Stick ($71):
8Bitdo Pro 2 Wired for Xbox ($36):
GameSir X2 USB-C ($53):
GameSir T4 Mini ($27, burrito controller):

Here are some products that I like and are at a good price, and I’ve made videos about the Xbox, Fire Stick, and Tablet here on this channel if you want to check them out. The prices for those Fire devices are really crazy.

Xbox Series S + SteelSeries Headset ($298):
NuPhy Air75 keyboard ($104):
Logitech G29 USB racing wheel ($199):
Anker 65W GaN II Charger ($34):
Fire TV 4K Max ($34):

Turn a USB Flash Drive into a Portable Gaming Console using Batocera

The Batocera firmware lets you flash a lightweight, emulation-focused operating system onto any flash drive, hard drive, or SD card. So what if we flashed it onto a flash drive, loaded it all up, and then used that as a portable gaming “system” that could be plugged into any Windows PC? That’s what we’re going to explore in this video.

Review: Portable Projector for Backyard Gaming (Apeman LC450)

Last updated: 13DEC2020 (see Changelog for details)

If you’ve ever spent time on any emulation-related website, subreddit, YouTube comments, or discord server, you’ve heard the arguments: if you want a good handheld gaming device, you must buy a PS Vita. So I decided to pick up a PS Vita and give it the same critical eye that I like to give any of my handheld devices.
