Where to Buy a Nintendo Switch Before Christmas

It comes as no surprise to anyone that the Switch bundles over Black Friday were one of the most popular choices for those shopping in the sale. Interestingly, unlike previous years, these bundles have managed to maintain stock at a few retailers -- so they are still available at the time of writing. That means that December is still a great time to buy a Nintendo Switch for yourself or as a gift.

Even in its seventh year on the market, the Switch has continued to see impressive first-party support with titles like Super Mario Bros. Wonder and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, so there's still plenty of new games to play right now if you pick one up. For more Switch deal updates, ensure you're following

What to Look for in a Nintendo Switch​

Will you Play in Portable or Docked?​

Something you should think about before purchasing is whether or not you are going to play in portable, docked, or both. Depending on your answer, you might gravitate towards a certain Switch model. If you plan to use both modes, the best Switch for you is the standard Nintendo Switch. On the other hand, if you think you won't play your Switch on a TV, then you should purchase a Nintendo Switch Lite.

The Nintendo Switch OLED are where things get interesting since it is a premium model. Generally, it is a good fit for you if you're looking to get the most out of the Switch and its games. If you tend to play more in Handheld mode than Docked mode, the Switch OLED is a worthwhile purhcase.

Do You Want to Play with Friends?​

If you want to play games locally with your friends, then the Switch Lite is something you want to avoid. Its portable-only nature doesn't allow for it to connect to a TV and dock. Additionally, no kickstand or Joy-Cons means that it is tricky to attempt tabletop play for local multiplayer. Both the Switch and Switch OLED have the missing features listed above, so we recommend choosing one of those models if you want to play local multiplayer.
