This week, a bunch of essential gaming hardware is discounted at Amazon and Best Buy, along with one of the best games of 2019 so far, Resident Evil 2.

If you’re curious about getting into VR, Sony’s PSVR bundles are a good introduction. Its two newest bundles are available for pre-order now and will be released later in May. Switch owners can add some storage space to their consoles with an all-time-low price on a 512 GB microSD card. Razer’s fan-favorite Tournament Edition Wolverine controller is also at an all time low price, and HP’s Omen Obelisk desktop PC featuring a GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card is on sale for $500 off.

Finally, Resident Evil 2, Capcom’s remake of the 1998 survival horror classic, dropped down to $38.52 this week, its lowest price yet. Physical PlayStation 4 and Xbox One copies are discounted by $21.41 at Amazon.
