These Nintendo Switch games just got a HUGE PRICE CUT at GameStop

Nintendo Switch games don’t go on sale as often as some of the other consoles, first-party titles especially. So, when there’s a promotion or discount it’s always best to see what’s available and gauge whether or not you’ve been wanting a game, or two, or three. Besides the many upcoming Nintendo Switch games soon to release, there is an incredible selection of relatively new to old titles too!

One of the best things about Switch games is that you can also grab them pre-owned without missing out on anything major — they don’t typically include download codes and most downloadable items are free. That allows you to get them cheaper than full price, alongside new copies that go on sale. You can choose either option, going with whatever matches your budget. It’s the perfect time to mention that GameStop is hosting a sale on many Switch games right now, with some truly excellent prices. You can browse the sale yourself, or see our top picks below.

Hurry! The Nintendo Switch OLED just got a rare discount
How to Preorder the Nintendo Switch OLED.

It’s not often that we see Nintendo Switch deals on the OLED model but Woot has bucked that trend with the Nintendo Switch OLED currently available for $30 off the regular price. That means instead of paying $350, you pay $320 which is a great price for a consistently sought-after game console. The deal only lasts for the next 10 days or until it sells out with the latter extremely likely to happen soon. Here’s what you need to know before you miss out.

Why you should buy the Nintendo Switch OLED
The Nintendo Switch OLED is a great upgrade to the standard Nintendo Switch and easily one of the best game consoles available right now. The big selling point to the Nintendo Switch is how you can use it hooked up to your TV but you can also play it portably. That’s because it has a 7-inch OLED screen for portable use. It looks great providing players with vivid colors and crisp contrast. Any Nintendo fan will know that many of its games are incredibly vibrant with the best Nintendo Switch games like the Mario and Zelda franchises looking stunning on an OLED screen.

Quick! This PS5 bundle just got an unprecedented price cut
The Playstation 5 system standing upright.

We didn't expect the PlayStation 5 Slim, the updated version of Sony's video game console, to go on sale this soon, but you can already get the PlayStation 5 Slim Marvel's Spider-Man 2 bundle from Amazon with a 20% discount. From its original price of $559, you'll only have to pay $449, which is a fantastic price for this gaming machine. PS5 deals always attract a lot of attention, so we expect this offer to get sold out quickly. If you want to take advantage of it, you're going to have to hurry in completing your purchase.

Why you should buy the PlayStation 5 Slim Marvel's Spider-Man 2 bundle
The PlayStation 5 Slim is more than just a slimmed-down version of the original PlayStation 5 -- though the difference is noticeable with 18% less weight and 30% less volume for the disc version. There's no performance upgrade between the PS5 Slim and PS5, and you'll be able to play all of the PlayStation 5 games on either model, but the PS5 Slim comes with a 1TB of storage with around 842GB usable, compared to 825GB with 667GB usable in the original PS5. That's nearly 200GB of extra space for your installed games, save data, and screenshots.
