Amazon Prime Day 2020 is here, and will run through to Wednesday, Oct.14.

Don’t forget the Roku deals either. For now, however, the best deals on TVs aren’t at Amazon at all, but instead at Best BuyWalmart, Target and Sam’s Club. That may change as Prime Day continues but for now, you don’t need to be a Prime member — or shop at Amazon — to get the best TV deals.

Best Prime Day TV deals so far

Update, Tuesday, Oct. 13: As of midday Tuesday, new blockbuster deals on TVs are few and far between. Amazon has some decent prices on its Fire TV models, but so far the best bargains are at Walmart and Target (for super-cheap Roku TVs) or at both Amazon and Best Buy, where you’ll find some excellent prices on higher-end models, including a Sony OLED. 

JVC

If you want to grab a TV for under $100, JVC’s LT-32MAW205 might be just the ticket. After all, this 32-inch HD TV (it has a 720p resolution) has Roku built-in, so when you factor in what you’d spend on a Roku media player, it’s like you’re getting the TV for $70 or so. This set

For two days, Prime members enjoy access to great deals on projectors & FHD & UHD 4K Smart TVs from Sony, Samsung, TCL, LG & more brands during the shopping event. Upgrading to a 4K TV is a good idea as older models are seeing lower prices on Amazon. An older Samsung TV, such as the 43-inch Class Crystal UHD TU-8000 Series 2019 model, is very affordable right now. It’s a 4K smart TV that comes with built-in Alexa and HDR. LG OLED TVs, on the other hand, are still expensive, but LG has some affordable models as well. The budget-friendly LG 43UN7300PUF, for instance, is a 43-inch 4K smart TV that comes with the popular WebOS, Alexa

Best early Prime Day 2020 headphone deals: AirPods Pro return to $199, Jabra Elite 45h for $80, Sony WF-1000XM3 for $178 and more

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Prime Day 2020 officially kicks off in just a few days. But unofficially, several companies are already coming out with early Amazon Prime Day deals. In the headphone space, it’s a return to some of the deep discounts on Sony headphones that we’ve seen before — and you don’t even need to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to take advantage of them. 

More specifically, we’re seeing Apple headphones return to their all-time low prices (even as a new AirPods Studio over-ear headphone remains rumored for Tuesday). Sony has again slashed prices on last year’s WF-1000XM3 as well as the newer WF-SP800N, which features noise canceling and is water-resistant, and the entry-level WF-XB700 Extra Bass, which is back down to the lowest price we’ve seen, at $78. 

We also expect to see more headphone discounts during the official Prime Day sale, so if you’re in the market for a specific type of headphone, say ones with noise cancellation, bluetooth connectivity, or true wireless earbuds, keep checking back.

If you can’t wait for Prime Day to score a deal, we’ve collected some of the biggest markdowns from the long-awaited sales event below. Note that you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to get these exclusive deals.

New iPhones are expected to be unveiled Tuesday, and they are rumored to come without wired headphones in the box for the first time ever. In the meantime, Apple’s current top of the line noise-canceling true wireless headphones are now back to selling at $199. That’s still pricey, but it’s $50 off what you’ll pay at the Apple Store, and $20 less

Sony finally reveals which PS4 games won’t work on PS5

Sony has been saying for months that the vast majority of PS4 games will work on PS5 through backwards compatibility, and it’s good to get some clarity on those that won’t work. Microsoft, on the other hand, says titles going all the way back to the original Xbox will work on Xbox Series X and Series S.

There are some other details about the PS5 backwards compatibility on Sony’s support page. Some PS4 games will get a bit of an upgrade, thanks to the PS5’s Game Boost feature, which seems similar to the PS4 Pro’s Boost Mode. Compatible titles will run more smoothly and/or have a higher frame rate.

Certain features in some titles might not work on PS5 (though Sony didn’t go into specifics), and you might run into “errors or unexpected behavior” while playing PS4 games. The company suggests testing your PS4 games on PS5 before buying any add-ons or DLC you want to pick up. Sony is also urging players to keep their PS5 up to date with the latest version of the firmware, which will hopefully keep any compatibility issues to a minimum.

As Sony previously confirmed, you’ll still be able to use your PlayStation VR setup for PS VR games. The PS5 supports DualShock 4 controllers, but only for PS4 games. The Platinum and Gold Wireless Headsets also work with the next-gen console.

When it comes to games you’ve downloaded onto your PS4 and your saved data, you can transfer all of that to your PS5 over WiFi. You’ll also be able to play PS4 games directly from a supported external storage drive.
