“If you played all the different offer is in Prime across all the latest games last year, you would have ended up with more than $3,000 of gaming content. And this year, we’re already at more than $2,000. We expect to eclipse last year’s total. And as you may have seen, we’ve done great games this year, League of Legends and Call of Duty Black Ops IV, “ added Ethan Evans.
