Why you should buy Nintendo Switch Sports on Prime Day

Nintendo Switch Sports is the latest entry in Nintendo’s beloved Sports saga. Many people fell in love with Wii Sports back when the Wii first launched. Since it came packaged with every new console, practically everyone has played at least one of Nintendo’s sports mini-games. But nostalgia isn’t the only thing the new Switch Sports has going for it. A more powerful console, more precise motion controls, and the benefit of decades of gamer input have led to an incredibly fun sequel.

Nintendo Switch Sports comes with several new sports: soccer, badminton, sword fighting (called chambara), and volleyball. Two Wii Sports classics make a return: tennis and bowling. Badminton is the star of the show this time around, much as tennis was the star of Wii Sports. Two players battle it out in a small court by smacking a birdie back and forth. Switch Sports excels when the controls are intuitive. You swing the joy-con just like you’d swing a racket. It’s easy to pick up and fun to challenge your friends. At family gatherings, grandma will pick it up in seconds and give the grandkids a run for their money.

Bowling and tennis are back with few changes. They’re still fun and addictive, and with the improved power and precision of the Switch motion controls, they’re better than ever. Things get interesting with soccer and volleyball. They’re a bit more complicated than the usual Sports fair. Volleyball requires all the same moves the real-life sport does. You’ll be bumping, setting, and spiking until you build up a sweat. Soccer is the most in-depth of the mini-games. You play full three-minute games, chasing after the ball and swinging the joy-con to kick. Chambara, the sword fighting game, is the lightsaber battle we’ve all been dreaming of since we were kids. You can swing your sword around like crazy, or use fencing techniques to strategically take down your opponent.

Grab Nintendo Switch Sports while it’s part of Walmart’s Prime Day deals. Your family and friends will thank you.

The Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense wireless controller is currently available as part of Walmart Black Friday deals for just $49 after a $20 discount to its original price of $69. If you need a second controller to play couch co-op, or a spare to swap in for your first one on the chance that it runs out of charge while you're in the middle of a boss fight, here's your chance from this year's Black Friday deals to get one for cheaper than usual. There's a possibility that stocks are running out though, as more than 1,000 units have been sold over the past 24 hours -- you better send in your order while the offer's still online.

Why you should buy the Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense wireless controller
The PlayStation 5 continues to dominate the gaming industry, and one of the reasons behind its popularity is the Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense wireless controller. The controller's innovations include its adaptive triggers, which can create a sense of resistance when players press the triggers, and haptic feedback, which improves upon the rumble mechanics in the PlayStation 4's DualShock controllers. Combined, these features add a tactile element to playing games on the PlayStation 5. Some of the best PS5 games see their gameplay elevated thanks to the DualSense controller. For example, the adaptive triggers unlocks alternate fire modes and quirks for guns in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and the haptic feedback simulates soft raindrops and slimy parasitic squirming in Returnal.
