Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal revealed the best and worst of 2019

If you’ve caught Black Friday fever in 2019, we don’t blame you – there’s loads of great deals that are live right now, whether you’re shopping for the PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, a sale from Amazon UK wasn’t one of them today.

Looking for the best Amazon Black Friday deals right now?While its offers are normally tempting in the extreme, we spotted a Nintendo Switch Lite bundle being promoted by the retailer that wasn’t quite what it seemed.

The deal in question packaged a Switch Lite console and a Labo Variety Kit for the price of £199, which sounds solid on paper given that the Lite normally costs around that by itself.

The problem? You need a full-fat Nintendo Switch console to use the Labo Variety Kit on offer, making the otherwise charitable addition of the Labo null and void. Fortunately, Amazon has since ended the offer.

And in fairness, the listing on Amazon UK does note that you need a compatible Switch in order to use Nintendo Labo – though it still begs the question as to why the retailer would put together such a bundle in the first place.

Fortunately, there are plenty of genuinely good Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals live right now – including this one at Amazon, which sees the standard Switch bundled with a Labo for a very reasonable £279. Unlike the stinker above, they’ll actually play nice together, making this the pick of the Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals that are live right now.

There’s no reason not to want to buy a Nintendo Switch Lite, either, as the handheld system earned an impressive 8/10 score in our review.

“If you’re yet to purchase a Switch and are purely interested in portable play without the need for local multiplayer, the Nintendo Switch Lite is a no-brainer,” wrote Jade King, our resident games guru.

We just suggest looking for a different bundle for the Switch Lite, and one that does not include Labo.
