Nintendo Switch consoles
There’s a reason that the Nintendo Switch is in short supply. Nintendo really nailed it with this hybrid console, with sales being consistently high since it’s launch back in 2017. Unlike the PS4 and Xbox One S, it can be used as a wireless handheld device — not unlike the Nintendo 3DS, another insanely popular Nintendo product — or it can be docked and connected to a TV to be played in the normal home console style.
As mentioned above, you won’t find many Nintendo Switch console deals unless you’re happy to go down the refurbished route.
Switch Lite consoles
More than two years after the launch of the original Nintendo Switch, the company announced a new variant of the console: the Nintendo Switch Lite. As the name suggests, this console is a watered-down version of the original. This means you get fewer features but also a lower price.
However, the Nintendo Switch Lite does not skimp out on the game library. Almost every game the original Switch supports the Switch Lite also supports (with the exception of games that require Joy-Con usage, such as 1-2-Switch). If you buy a physical game for your main Switch, that cartridge will also work in your Switch Lite. Additionally, if you use the same Nintendo account on both systems, you’ll have access to the digital games you’ve paid for through the Nintendo eShop.
The Switch Lite isn’t quite as scarce as the Switch, but you’re still hard-pressed to find big bargains for now. Here are some of the best prices we could find.
- Nintendo Switch Lite (all colors) for $199.99
- Nintendo Switch Lite with Tempered Glass Screen Protector Bundle for $214.99
- Nintendo Switch Lite (refurbished) for $179.99 ($19 off)
- Nintendo Switch Lite bundle with carrying case and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for $269.99
