Aldi's Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal sells out - but more offers are available

More stores are dropping to around the 230 price.

Back when Aldi surprised us all by announcing what is surely guaranteed to be the best Nintendo Switch deal this Black Friday we expected demand would be high. Well, a few minutes after going on sale, the Switch was gone.

At one point, over 100,000 people were in the queue to view the Black Friday sale page at Aldi. At this point, the majority of the offers are now sold out. You're still able to get some of the less in-demand items such as a mediocre desktop PC or robot vacuum cleaner, but the big ones are off the menu.

That said, it doesn't mean your hopes of securing a cheap Switch are gone for the year. Right now, there are a handful of decent deals still out there - and with Black Friday now upon us, we are bound to see more flash deals pop up over the next 24 hours.

Here are a couple of the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals we've seen right now. We'll update this list and our hub page linked above with all the latest offers throughout the day:

The big question, though, is could we see more retailers offer the Switch for around £230? Quite possibly! ShopTo on eBay has already brought back its £240 offer a couple of times this morning, while places like Amazon are running lightning deals throughout the day where one could pop up.

All of these deals are offering the most recent Switch model with extended battery life, too. It's not a load of older stock dumped off at a discount. Still, let's not forget about the rumours of a more comprehensive Switch hardware upgrade that are still swirling around, though.

We're hoping more stores at least attempt to match Aldi's offer on the big day as it's been pretty disappointing hunting for Switch bargains so far. Fingers crossed each website that does holds up to the demand. Going by our experiences with the PS5 and Xbox Series X launches, though, I can't say I'm too hopeful.
