The Nintendo Swap Black Friday Deal Is Really Taking place

0

The Nintendo Switch was the breakout tech item in quarantine, and apparently, based on how quickly some of the first Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals were closed, it will also turn out to be the breakout device of this year’s weird deal event. If you’ve been waiting to buy a Nintendo Switch all year and have been continuously updating a GameStop page while your friends talk breathlessly about their Animal Crossing villages, your chance to escape the Purgatory FOMO is finally here. The Nintendo Switch is IN STOCK and DISCOUNTED. Yes, you read that right. Do not hesitate. Do not wait. React fast.

Editor’s note: The first three lots of this bundle sold out in less than two minutes at 7:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m., and 7:45 p.m. Seriously. Walmart appears to continue to provide small amounts of the bundle every 15 minutes. Check in to see if the next one falls and get ready to hit refresh.

No, the Nintendo Switch is not a particularly new device. It was first revealed in October 2016 (aka a long time ago) and hit stores the following March. The stakes for the switch were high. Nintendo’s final console, the Wii U, was not received particularly enthusiastically by serious gamers or the more casual gaming community devoted to the motion-controlled living room craze of the Nintendo Wii. In the first two months of its existence, the Wii sold 435,000 units. The Wii U? 57,000. A favorite theory of conspiratorial YouTube compilers is that they gave up the wacky promotional strategy of Wiis when promoting the Wii U (a somewhat dubious theory, but convincing nonetheless), but regardless of that, the company needed the Nintendo Switch to be a win.

In short, it was a huge win. The Nintendo Switch, which promised a hybrid experience – docked just as well on a television as on a handheld – became Nintendo’s fastest-selling console. The early exclusive games were all absolute blasts and stood out when compared to the fairly repetitive Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed, a slightly disappointing Star Wars cycle that you got with the Xbox and PlayStation. By the end of last year, Nintendo had sold more than 52 million switches, making it the third most popular console version of all time.

Then the pandemic. You know the story by now. Having to stay home has changed all of our habits. Playing video games, something that is safe to do with a group of people, seemed a lot more interesting to a lot more people. For many of these people, the responsive Nintendo Switch (along with chill phone and computer games) was exactly what the doctor ordered. And if you didn’t already have one, it became basically impossible to get one.

Needless to say, Nintendo Switch stocks were sparse to nonexistent. It’s not available at Target, Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and GameStop at the normal retail price of $ 300. But as of now, Walmart is offering a revised version of a deal that was basically sold out immediately last weekend. The deal includes a switch as well Mario Kart Deluxe 8 (a game that doesn’t require an introduction) and 3 months of Nintendo Online (which gives you access to online multiplayer for a range of games) at the normal retail price of a Switch. It is by far the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal you will see and perhaps the best Nintendo Switch deal you will see during this time. Seriously, don’t miss out.

Missed the Switch Deal? Unfortunately, even if you were willing to pay full price, regular Nintendo Switches are largely sold out everywhere. However, you can purchase the Nintendo Switch Lite, which can play the same functions but cannot dock to your television. If you just wanted to play solo or in handheld mode anyway, this isn’t a huge concession.
