Despite being released back in 2017, the popularity of the Nintendo Switch is yet to dwindle. The hybrid console continues to sell out in stores around the world, and that’s especially true during the Black Friday sale, which has seen some of the best deals available this year.
While most focus on bundling the console with other games, there is a single deal that offers money off the console – a rarity for the Nintendo Switch.
As part of eBay’s Black Friday sales, you can pick up a brand-new Nintendo Switch for just £239.99 – a rare saving of £20 compared to the £259 RRP. The listing is a little misleading, suggesting a £60 saving on an inflated £299 RRP, but it’s still a very good deal overall.
It’s rare to get savings on the console alone, but it’s worth pointing out that there are also great bundles to be had this Black Friday.
One of the most tempting bundles we’ve seen this Black Friday is available from the Nintendo Store itself, bundling the Nintendo Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month subscription to Nintendo Online for just £259 – the RRP of the console alone. If you’re new to the Switch platform, that may be a more tempting option.
We praised the hybrid console in our Nintendo Switch review, calling it “versatile, powerful and a rather attractive device” and that view has only got stronger with better game availability, a healthy accessory market and ongoing software improvements.
