Amazon recently announced that it was offering a brand new perk specifically designed for video game fans and Amazon Prime subscribers. Namely, those who are signed up for the service will receive 20% off all pre-orders and new releases within two weeks of the game coming out.

It’s a big move directly targeted at video game fans from a high-profile service that has many subscribers across the U.S (mainly for things not involving video games). Meaning, Gamestop’s Powerup Rewards and Best Buy’s Gamers Club has a new, big time competitor to deal with.

This new development provides us with a good opportunity to look at, and compare, the three big name subscription services that matter to video game shoppers to see which offers the best value for video game fans and connoisseurs. We’ll break down each while focusing on these four criteria:

  1. Price
  2. Gaming Perks
  3. Non-gaming Perks
  4. Other Misc. Bonuses

After going through all three, we’ll come back and rank some “winners.” However, it’s up to you to decide which service is best for you. The value of the perks you are paying for is determined on whether or not you take advantage of them. OK enough talk, let’s dig in.
