For what feels like the first time ever, the console is both in stock and on sale at the same time
Since it launched in March 2017, the Nintendo Switch has been plagued by stock issues, often selling out as soon as new stock arrived in stores. Happily, for Black Friday, the gaming giant has made sure supplies are much better, meaning if you want to buy one for Christmas, you should be able to. Nintendo has announced: “We are not discounting the Switch” – but don’t be alarmed: that hasn’t stopped retailers offering great deals on console bundles. Read on for our pick of the best prices so far.
The best value Switch deal
Includes: Switch, Lego Worlds, Rayman
This one may not come with the games you might want – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey, for example – but in terms of value for money it’s the cheapest you’re going to get the basic Switch console for.
