Now Playing: Amazon Prime Day Deals For PS4, Xbox One, And Nintendo Switch Games - GS News Update

The products discussed here were independently chosen by our editors. GameSpot may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site.

We're in the final hours of Amazon Prime Day 2019. This annual big sale from the big retailer offers plenty of opportunities to save some money and pick up all kinds of things--blenders, baby products, toilet paper probably, and yes, even Nintendo games. Whether you're looking to pick up your first Switch, have a specific game in mind, need some accessories, or are just curious what kind of discounts will actually be available, you've come to the right place. But do so quickly! Amazon Prime ends at the closing hour of Tuesday.

Amazon's biggest competitors are getting in on the deals action by throwing their own anti-Prime Day sales, including Walmart, Target, and GameStop, to name just a few. All that competition can only benefit shoppers, as Prime Day has gradually become the equivalent of Black Friday in the summer with record-low discounts on high-cost items (like game consoles). Even though the Nintendo Switch sells for $300, a lower price point than the Xbox One or PS4, its games and accessories get quite pricey, with Switch Pro controllers selling for $70 and first-party titles often remaining at $60 long after launch. That's why finding good deals on Switch products is even more exciting, and Prime Day is likely your best chance to find a ton of Switch discounts until Black Friday.

Prime Day and its surrounding sales flurry comes can be overwhelming, so we're here to help make the experience a bit less stressful. Here are the best Nintendo Switch deals for Prime Day available now.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Nintendo and Ubisoft's unexpectedly wonderful crossover, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, typically retails for $60, but you can pick it up for only $20 right now at GameStop. That saves you a whopping $40 on one of Switch's best games--more than enough to also download its equally challenging Donkey Kong Adventure DLC.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are on the way this November, but you can scratch your Pokemon itch in the meantime by picking up Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee, a reimagining of the classic Pokemon Yellow version with some Pokemon Go-inspired mechanics. The game normally runs for $60, but you can save 50% off on it right now at Amazon.

Nintendo Switch with grey Joy-Cons

Nintendo's hybrid console hasn't dropped in price very often since it first launched back in March 2017, which makes this Ebay deal an enticing offer if you've been looking to pick one up. You can purchase the system with grey Joy-Con controllers for $265, saving you a cool $35 off its standard $300 price tag.

Everyone's still buzzing about the announcement of a new $200 Switch model, the Switch Lite, but with it releasing in September, we wouldn't count on it getting discounted any time soon. If you're in the market for a Switch, your best bet is to grab the OG model during Prime Day.

While the Nintendo Switch on its own was discounted at Ebay a couple of times during the first day of Prime Day, those deals have since ended. Luckily, some solid console bundles are still available. One of the best options is currently at Walmart, where you can get a Nintendo Switch, first-party Nintendo game, and bonus accessory of your choice for $329. The games to choose from include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Splatoon 2. There are a few accessories to choose from, including a portable power bank for the Switch.

Amazon just posted its first Nintendo Switch bundle deal, and it's a good one if you prefer to buy digitally: You can get the console and $35 Eshop credit for $300, which means the Eshop credit is just an added bonus with your purchase. At GameStop, you'll get a free Starlink: Battle for Atlas starter pack when you purchase a Switch. Plus, you can get a bundle with the console, Crash Team Racing, and a Switch steering wheel two-pack for $300 at Ebay, if that's something you're into.

Assuming you're looking to buy both a Nintendo Switch and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, Google Express has the deal for you: Both consoles are currently bundled together for $400 (with $44 slashed off in checkout when you use promo code GOTURE), which is a total of $150 in savings. This might be one of the craziest deals we've seen yet this Prime Day--but we'll take it.

FastSnail Joy-Con Grips

Switch's Joy-Cons make it easy to set up a multiplayer gaming session anywhere you go, but they're not exactly comfortable to hold. If you play the console with friends and family often, then you might want to consider FastSnail's Joy-Con grips, which make the detachable controllers a little more ergonomic. A two-pack typically runs for $20, but you can pick one up for only $12.34 right now on Amazon.

As we said earlier, Switch accessories are almost as notoriously expensive as the games themselves. But if the Switch is your primary gaming system, it definitely doesn't hurt to invest in at least a few essentials: a Pro controller, a hard-shell travel case, a microSD memory card, etc. Here are some of the best accessory deals available now.
