planning to get a switch & mario kart for my 6yo for christmas..need help
i know absolutely nothing about gaming these days having given up after buying an xbox 360 and 27 halo & COD games and got completely burned out on them.

i'm like 2 console generations behind

i gave up and built a classic arcade machine and i'm back to playing defender and robotron. GET OFF MY LAWN

so he played the mario kart game one time at the store and i have to say it looked ridiculously good.

it looks like this thing never goes on sale..any thoughts from this board? good idea? bad idea?

TIA!

I got one with games a couple years ago on Facebook Marketplace. I've had to replace the joysticks due to the drift issue but otherwise it's been great. Got a good deal and games with it.

Pretty sure the Black Friday Switch deal is the console bundled with MK8 for $300. That’s about as good of a deal as you will find.


Check out all the big retailers, pretty sure they all have the same deal.

This right here, Walmart will have their sale online 11/25 @7p for their Switch Bundle with MK8. Pick up an extra controller while you're at it and then you're set.

I got one for my 6 YO birthday in September. Check target and Walmart online daily. Also, subscribe to wario64 on Twitter. He releases sales and updates for games/systems. It’s how I got a switch via Amazon and didn’t have to pay an arm or a leg for it.

I'm going for the $299 deal for Switch and MK8 for my son. I know Best Buy and Gamestop have that deal for Black Friday.

The sale begins on 11/22 at major retailers.

It’s the best deal you are going to find, but will be tough to actually find it, will sell out immediately

That’s actually what my plan is. Might not be worth the $50 I am saving

I actually ordered one from Best Buy unbundled for $300 just to make sure I have one. Still deciding if we are going to give it to our little guy, he is only 4 but video games are his passion.

This is for my 6 yr old son. This is the only thing he wants. Got my kids a dog during Covid and he was upset. Asked him what is wrong and his response was "I just want a Nintendo switch."

Kept refreshing Best Buy website for a few hours, finally got a Switch at 1:30am. Wasnt sure what time zone or when exactly they were going live. Refreshed website starting at 11pm.

I waited 5-10 mins and got a switch on Best Buy. Was really easy.
