Update 16/01/2018: We're chugging along through January now and if the winter winds are getting to you a little bit, maybe you ought to treat yourself to a shiny new console. Here are the very best deals we've found this week.
After a brief lull in sales with the Wii U, Nintendo returned to form in a big way in 2017 with the release of the Nintendo Switch - a hybrid home console and handheld system that sought to bridge the gap between gaming systems, letting players bring their games anywhere they want and play with their friends. Since the console's launch, it has been one of the most desired video game consoles in many years, with it being added to many people's wishlists. Nintendo only managed to catch up to the stock demands by September, despite the Switch being originally released in March 2017.
As such, finding a cheap Nintendo Switch console has been a bit of a task since launch. Very rarely does the system see a major discount, with the majority of the best deals being based on the best value bundles coupling a console with some of its best games. The Switch itself is a unique system, comprised of a screen and two detachable controllers are known as Joy-Cons. The system can be controlled using a number of combinations using these or the more traditional Pro Controller which, of course, is sold separately.
Nintendo Switch games themselves also seem to rarely see discounts at this stage, with first-party Nintendo games such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition being some of the most desirable games available - all routinely hovering around the £45 price point. Discounts do happen, though, and you'll find the best of the most recent deals right here in this article. You'll need to be quick, though.
