The Nintendo Switch console doesn’t go on sale often, so when it does it’s a big deal. Right now, Ant Online (via Ebay) is selling a Nintendo Switch with red and blue Joy-Cons for $270. That saves you $30 off the normal retail price. It’s not clear how long this deal will last, so if you want to grab a Switch for yourself or someone on your gift list this year, hop on it fast.
Now is a great time to get a Switch, thanks to its ever-expanding library of fantastic games. It has big first-party hits like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, plus recent and upcoming releases like Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee, Super Mario Party, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Then it has major third-party games like Diablo III, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. On top of that, you have a steady stream of indie hits on the Eshop like Dead Cells, Celeste, and Hollow Knight.
It all adds up to a well-rounded system you can plug into your TV to play when you’re at home, or throw into a bag when you’re on the go. For more suggestions, check out our holiday gift guide for Switch games and accessories.
This Ebay deal comes shortly after Nintendo announced it had a record-breaking Black Friday weekend in the US, selling $250 million worth of products, including Switch hardware and games like Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee and Super Mario Party.
