We've just hit day two of Amazon Prime Day 2022 in Australia, and as always, the sales event is heavy on gaming peripherals. If you've been hoping to grab a graphics card, you may be disappointed, but if it's a headset, keyboard or controller you're after, the sale has been really good so far.

Interestingly, web cams have been popular among readers of PC Gamer and our sibling site TechRadar. In particular, the Logitech C922 Pro Stream has seen a lot of interest this week, which is currently AU$97—it usually goes for around AU$120, so it's a marginal, though obviously welcome, discount. Oh, and this mouse mat has been popular too, for some reason (save AU$1.50!).

A full list of what's good for PC gaming enthusiasts is collected on our main Amazon Prime Day 2022 hub, and you can also check out the overall PC gaming best sellers on Amazon directly

If you're curious about what's been popular with PC Gamer readers though, here's the crib notes you so eagerly desire.

Razer Kiyo Pro Full HD Webcam AU$329AU$172

Razer Kiyo Pro Full HD Webcam | AU$329 AU$172
This unit has generated a huge amount of interest this week, and for good reason: the discount is enormous. In our review, we highlighted its exceptional light sensor and great 1080p / 60fps support, while bemoaning its somewhat imperfect autofocus and poor HDR. Still, it's a top unit, and this price is great.

PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless ControllerAU$109.95AU$63

PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller | AU$109.95 AU$63 (save AU$46.95)
This is probably an obvious one: people with PS5s are almost certainly going to leap at a discount like this. It also plays nice with PC, and with more and more first-party Sony games coming to our platform, we'll see an increasing number of games that actually support its best features. This price is available for the colours Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink and Starlight Blue.

Meta Quest 2 | AU$639 + AU$100 credit + 2 free games

Meta Quest 2 | AU$639 + AU$100 credit + 2 free games
Not a discount per se: buying a Meta Quest 2 during Prime Day just gets you AU$100 Amazon credit and two games. But it's still better than not getting those things, and people seem to agree.

Razer BlackShark V2 XAU$104AU$48

Razer BlackShark V2 X | AU$104 AU$48
This one's a no-brainer: under AU$50 for a top gaming headset definitely sits in impulse purchase territory. The Razer BlackShark V2 is our favourite wired gaming headset, but the V2 X (yes, there's a difference) is a slightly cheaper version with a non-detachable mic and some cosmetic differences. If you want to go with our fave, that's currently AU$91 (down from AU$174.95). If you want wireless, the BlackShark V2 Pro is AU$191 down from AU$239.

Razer Basilisk X HyperspeedAU$109AU$45

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed | AU$109 AU$45
Another Razer peripheral; the brand is always well represented during Amazon sales shindigs. This is a wireless affair we rated highly upon launch back in 2019, noting its long battery life, near-zero latency, comfort and affordability. The lighting ain't customizable though, so do be aware of that if you like to match stuff up.
