The early deals are coming thick and fast. Right now you can get a fantastic Nintendo Switch deal that comes with a free copy of Pokemon Sword or Shield for only £279 right now at Currys PC World in the UK. That's a saving of £45 on the list price, and is something likely to rival any Nintendo Switch Black Friday offer you see at the end of this month. Let's not forget that Pokemon Sword and Shield is brand new, and only just launched in the UK.

That's not all - there's also a similar offer on the Nintendo Switch Lite, which comes with a copy of Pokemon Sword or Shield, in any colour you like, for £219. The saving here isn't quite as massive, but you're still keeping £24 in your pocket, which you can put towards any of the best Nintendo Switch games you fancy. It's all part of Curry's 'Why wait until Black Friday' promotion, which also guarantees to match any price cuts between now and the end of the month, so it's well worth considering. After all, if you're looking to pick up a Black Friday game deal or two, it might be worth spending now to beat the rush. Here are the deals below.
