SteelSeries is running a Spring Sale promotion that offers up to 40% off some headsets, mice and gaming pads until Monday 23 May. While discounts on individual items may vary, there are some great deals you can get – including some that are available at the new, all-time lowest prices.
For example, the Arctis 7P Plus is our pick of the best wireless gaming headset for PlayStation, but it also works with Windows PCs, Nintendo Switch, Smartphones, and Oculus / Meta Quest 2. Although it comes in the premium version and usually costs around $ 70 more than Sony’s own Pulse 3D headset, it offers excellent battery life, USB-C charging, an easy-to-use audio dial, pivoting earcups that allow for easier storage and adequate comfort of use during long gaming sessions. It is even compatible with PlayStation 5 3D audio.
With a SteelSeries discount of 20 percent on the Arctis 7P Plus, the black model drops to a new low price of $ 135.99 – that’s a $ 34 saving. When you add the headset to your cart, you will also receive free shipping and a carrying bag. Read our guide to buying a gaming headset.
Another notable offering from the SteelSeries spring sale is the overpriced Aerox 3 Wireless. This lightweight gaming mouse weighs just 68 grams and its honeycomb is filled with colorful RGB lighting. The 2022 model usually costs $ 99.99, but can be purchased for as little as $ 64.99 in black or white along with a free mouse pad when added to your cart.
Another advantage of this mouse is that it can be used via Bluetooth or with the included 2.4GHz wireless USB dongle with which you can switch between the two machines on the fly. It is advertised to have up to 200 hours of battery life, but in actual use it lasts at most a few days with the lights on. Although, fortunately, it charges via USB-C.
If you missed yesterday’s news then Dungeons and Dragons podcast Throw on romance teamed up with itch.io to offer a huge package of RPG board games as a fundraiser for reproductive rights, you have plenty of time to join. This promotion includes over 200 creators who have donated their games and digital assets, and you will get over 275 of them – DRM free – with a donation of $ 5 or more. It is very similar to previous fundraisers that itch.io has run, like the last one supporting Ukraine. This one will run until June 13, and if it is similar to the previous ones, it is possible that more games will be added to the mix as it will continue to raise money beyond the initial fundraising goal.
If you need a webcam, the Razer Kiyo Pro is currently on sale at Amazon and Best Buy for $ 99.99. The $ 100 discount makes the accessory more profitable than when it first came out when it was sold for $ 199.99. It has decent specs, including the ability to record 1080p footage at up to 60fps and a 103-degree wide field of view that can be easily cropped for tighter framing – as long as you don’t mind using Razer’s Synapse software.
The Kiyo Pro is a bit of a mixed bag, but ultimately does a good job with the tricky lighting and manages to produce smooth, detailed video. It’s just a bit expensive for what it offers and is missing, such as 4K resolution, but the current discount makes it a much better value. Read our review.
Google took a brief look at the upcoming Pixel 7 and announced the inexpensive Pixel 6A smartphone at a developer conference on Wednesday. While the 6A will be offering Google’s flagship Tensor processor for $ 449, it lacks a headphone jack and defies the trend of A-series phones using the same camera system as their more expensive brothers.
But if you’re looking for the best from Google – and want maximum camera performance – Amazon sells the unlocked 128GB Pixel 6 Pro in Bi-Color White for $ 856.57. This modest discount of around $ 42 gives you an unlocked phone for use with any operator, as well as a Google triple camera system that includes a 50MP main sensor, 12MP ultra wide, and 48MP telephoto lens with 4x magnification. It also has a larger, 6.7-inch display with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. Needless to say, there’s a lot to like about the high-end Pixel, and these are features that far outweigh the upcoming budget model. Read our Pixel 6 Pro review.
