Best Nintendo, XBox, PS5 and Other Video Game Deals

Just about every kid over a certain age wants nothing but new video games, gaming accessories, and maybe even a new video game console for the holidays. Fortunately, this is one of the best times to find deals directly from brands like Nintendo, as well as at big retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Gamestop, and Amazon.

Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 bundle


To buy: Nintendo Switch Bundle, $299 (normally $400); walmart.com

Pick up what you might call a Nintendo starter pack: a Switch with the neon red and blue Joy-Con, a digital download of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month individual subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, all for what you’d typically spend on the Switch alone. Get ready for some wild family races!

XBox Series S Holiday

Best Buy

To buy: Microsoft Xbox Series S 512 GB Holiday Console, $250 (normally $300); bestbuy.com
