Want to get your hands on the best Nintendo Switch bundles? We've got you covered. Although the console's dedication to holding its value means that good sales can be hard to find (especially as we move into fall and stores begin planning for those oh-so tempting Black Friday game deals), our band of bargain hunters have been gathering up every discount and price-cut they can to save you money. You'll find these below.

Nintendo Switch Lite preorder price
Get your hands on the brand-new Nintendo Switch Lite, a cheaper, handheld-only alternative.

What counts as a 'good' offer, though? Broadly speaking, the best Nintendo Switch bundles come with a new game and cost around $320 or below (the system is normally $299 by itself, so any more than that and the whole thing becomes increasingly less worthwhile). However, games aren't the be-all and end-all when it comes to making a great saving. Nintendo Switch accessories are every bit as useful, particularly because getting the likes of an extra Nintendo Switch controller cheap is tricky. And hey, Nintendo Switch SD cards are always handy in overcoming the console's poor internal memory of just 32GB.

The next question is, which version of the Switch do you choose? There are currently three models available. You can either plump for the original console, a slightly upgraded model with superior battery life (both of which can be used on you TV or as a portable system on the go), or settle on the brand-new Nintendo Switch Lite. The latter can only be used in handheld mode at 720p resolution, but it is a lot cheaper.

No matter what you go for, don't forget to check out our guide to cheap Nintendo game deals while you're here - you'll find all the latest hits for less.

1. Nintendo Switch (original)

The best overall deal

Resolution: 1080p (TV mode), 720p (handheld mode) | Storage: 32GB | Connectivity: Wifi, Bluetooth 4.1, x1 HDMI, x1 USB Type-C, x1 SD card slot, 1x 3.5mm audio jack | Features: Touchscreen, accelerometer, gyroscope, brightness sensor, TV mode, handheld mode, detachable Joy-Cons

Can be played on TV
Portable
Detachable Joy-Cons
Expensive

The standard Nintendo Switch is arguably still the best one. That's because it gives you options; you can either play on your TV or take it with you in handheld mode (though the screen is limited to 720p resolution when you do so). Better still, it's easy to do both. That level of flexibility is what makes this version so appealing. Want to try some Mario Kart multiplayer with your family and friends? No problem. Feel like tackling The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on your morning commute? Sure thing. This Switch allows you to make that call. What's more, playing on a TV means you can enjoy your games in glorious 1080p HD.

If you'd prefer to future-proof yourself, this is the Switch to go for.

2. Nintendo Switch Lite

Perfect for gaming on the go

Resolution: 720p (handheld mode only) | Storage: 32GB | Connectivity: Wifi, Bluetooth 4.1, x1 USB Type-C, x1 SD card slot, 1x 3.5mm audio jack | Features: Touchscreen, accelerometer, gyroscope, lightweight, improved battery life

Much cheaper
22g lighter than the original Switch
Superior battery life
Handheld mode only

If you've been crying out for a cheaper Nintendo Switch, this is your answer. The Lite is significantly more affordable than the standard console and is 22g lighter as well. Throw in a battery that lasts 20-30% longer and you have a tempting deal on your hands. Unfortunately, Nintendo's brand-new system comes with drawbacks of its own. Namely, it only runs in handheld mode at 720p - this version can't be played on a TV. That limits its viability for split-screen multiplayer or couch co-op. However, the Lite's compact, sturdy nature and lower price make it ideal for those on a budget or as a console for younger children.
