Our attention may have been glued to PS5 updates over the past few weeks, but we’ve been reminded today of the sheer popularity of the Nintendo Switch (once again).
Tesco launched some incredible Black Friday deals which saw the Nintendo Switch’s price slashed from the usual £279 to £229, saving shoppers £50. This is hands down the best Nintendo Switch deal we’ve seen so far for Black Friday and therefore it’s no surprise that it’s already sold out. Good work if you got one!
The Nintendo Switch was also completely sold out for large swathes of 2020 after everyone tried to get their hands on a console during the first lockdown. Animal Crossing: New Horizons was the game on everyone’s lips and helped inject a little fun into what was (and still continues to be) a challenging year for many.
If you couldn’t find a Switch for love nor money in the Spring and missed out on Tesco’s deal, don’t worry, our experts have you covered. We’ve been monitoring Switch prices for weeks in the lead up to Black Friday and can confidently bring you the best of the rest – even if these deals aren’t quite as brilliant as Tesco’s.
