If you're looking for some extra entertainment at home, and perhaps even on the move, then a games console is a fine choice. And thanks to the affordable Nintendo Switch, a new console doesn't have to cost the earth. We've rounded up the best Nintendo Switch deals and Switch Lite deals so you can get gaming at the best price possible.
So why should you choose the Nintendo Switch? Because it's a unique console. While the various iterations of PS4 and Xbox One concentrate on raw power and a purely housebound experience, the Switch stays true to Nintendo's ethos and goes for pure fun.
As well as top tier games in the iconic Mario and Zelda series, the Nintendo Switch has an extra trick up its sleeve - it doubles as a portable games console. Slot the tablet-sized screen into the controller, and you can game on the go.
The Nintendo Switch doesn't output in 4K, and it can't run Blu-rays or DVDs. But this is a games console, pure and simple, rather than the heart of your home entertainment system.
The Nintendo Switch Lite is a cheaper version of the Switch and purely for gaming on the go. The Lite can't be used to play games on your TV, nor does it come with a dock. The Switch Lite screen measures 5.5in compared to 6.2in on the Switch. Both consoles output 720p HD resolution.
Now you know what you want, let's take a look at the best Nintendo Switch deals around...
