IGN - Daily Deals: Nintendo Switch OLED On Sale, Discounts on Joy-Con Controllers, and More


Recommended Posts

Check out the new hot daily deals to keep your weekend going on this Sunday, including some great deals on popular LEGO sets just in time for the holiday season, 50% off the Razer Kishi mobile controller for your Xbox Cloud Gaming needs, a Nintendo Switch OLED for less than $300, deals on expansion for your Xbox Series X|S, an iRobot Roomba vacuum on sale, and more.

20% Off New 2022 LEGO Advent Calendars

You know the holiday season is near when the new LEGO Advent Calendars come out to play. The 2022 LEGO Advent Calendars went up for sale in late September, and today Walmart is taking an extra 20% off most of the 2022 sets, including Star Wars, Marvel (Guardians of the Galaxy), LEGO Friends, and LEGO City. Each set comes with 24 minifigures, one for each day leading up to Christmas. That way you'll have fun assembling a little kit each and every day instead of waiting it out for a singular moment.

LEGO Ideas Seinfeld Building Kit for 20% Off

LEGO Ideas allows fan-made LEGO creations to become reality, and this recreation of the Seinfeld apartment is a great example of what can come from this line of LEGO sets. This set recreates Jerry's apartment, and comes with 5 minifigures: Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza, Cosmo Kramer, Elaine Benes and Newman, along with a handful of accessories that fit the Seinfeld vibe.

Seagate 1TB Storage Expansion Card (SSD) for Xbox Series X|S for $199.99

Like the PS5, the Xbox Series X benefits from additional storage space that matches the speed of the internal SSD. Unlike the PS5, you can't just install any generic SSD, even the ones that are fast enough. You'll specifically need the Seagate storage expansion card. A 1TB drive normally costs $219.99, but today Amazon has it for $199.99.

Alienware m17 17" 4K AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX Radeon RX 6850M Gaming Laptop

Equivalent to Intel Core i9-12900HK with RTX 3080

Dell has this Alienware m17 17" gaming laptop equipped with AMD's most powerful CPU and GPU for $2600. There's a $550 instant discount as well as two stackable coupon codes: AWSMITE09 and TOMSGUIDE5 that drops the price to $1752.74.

This Alienware m17 config spares absolutely no expense to make the perfect gaming laptop. The newest 6000-series CPU is designed to compete with Intel's latest Alder Lake CPUs. The AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX is the most powerful CPU in the 6000-series lineup, and it performs almost as well as Intel's own Core i9-12900HK. That is to say, it's a monster of a processor in terms of both workstation and gaming performance.

Likewise, the AMD Radeon RX 6850M is currently AMD's most powerful mobile GPU and its performance hovers somewhere in between the RTX 3070 Ti and the RTX 3080. It's very similar to the Radeon RX 6750 XT desktop GPU in architecture, but clocked at a lower speed. It will hold its own in any game you throw at it, and you'll certainly need the power in order to run games smoothly on the laptop's native 4K display.

Alienware x15 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1368

Again, to score this deal you'll need to apply two stackable coupon codes: "AWSMITE09" and "TOMSGUIDE5". The Alienware x15 is a newer, thinner, and lighter redesign of the m15. In fact, it's the thinnest Alienware laptop ever and competes in build quality, dimensions, and performance to other high-end ultra-thin laptops like the Razer Blade. This particular config comes well equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7-11800H CPU, RTX 3070 GPU with a TDP rating of 110W (with dynamic boost), 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.

The RTX 3070 has a lower TDP rating that that found on the m15 (150W with dynamic boost) in order to keep thermals manageable, but the x15 is still fully capable of powering through pretty much any game at 60+fps on the laptop's 1080p display. It should perform about as well as the previous generation's fastest model, the RTX 2080 SUPER mobile, and that's very impressive considering the x15's 0.63" thickness.

iRobot Roomba Vacuum for 27% Off

You can save $75 today on this wi-fi enabled robot vacuum from iRobot. The 694 model has personalized cleaning suggestions, and a 3-stage cleaning process that lifts dirt, dust, and debris from carpets and hard floors, while also taking care of corners and edges. This vacuum can run for up to 90 minutes before automatically docking and recharging.

Nintendo Switch OLED for $297.66

Amazon Store UK has the Nintendo Switch OLED with White Joy-Cons for about $302 with free shipping. That's about the same price as the original non-OLED Switch. The Nintendo Switch OLED features a larger, more vibrant OLED touchscreen display, an upgrade to the terrible OG kickstand, an ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive white Switch shell and matching Joy-Cons. If you have the budget to spring for this one, we definitely think it's worth the upgrade over the vanilla Switch.

Note that since this is shipped from Amazon Store UK and not Amazon, you'll be receiving the UK version of the Switch OLED. The Switch OLED is not region locked, so you'll be able to play US games without any hassle. However, you'll be receiving a UK plug. You'll need to get a UK to US plug adapter in order to charge your Switch here in the States.

Nintendo Neon Purple/Neon Orange Joy-Con for $13 Off

Official Nintendo Joy Con are still generally priced at full price ($79.99). Getting a set of new Joy Con can be extremely pricey, so you have to take advantage of sales when they pop up. Fortunately, you can get a set of the Neon Purple and Neon Orange Joy Con today for $66.99, a $13 discount. These controllers work on both the original Nintendo Switch model and the Nintendo Switch OLED, and it's great for playing games that are better with motion control, like Super Mario Odyssey or Nintendo Switch Sports.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons With DLC Is $59.99

Buying the Animal Crossing New Horizons and its Happy Home Paradise DLC usually runs you about $85, but today Amazon is bundling the base game with the DLC for the price of the normal game, $59.99. Animal Crossing New Horizons has a ton of content, from building out your own island paradise, to designing resort homes for the adorable animal villagers in the Happy Home Paradise DLC. If you don't have the game yet, this price can't be beat.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD and Zelda amiibo On Sale

It appears that the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will tie in heavily to both Breath of the Wild and Zelda: Skyward Sword, making the last two big 3D Zelda entires somewhat of required reading. Fortunately, you've got over 7 months left to get through these two big games, and Skyward Sword is on sale today. Be sure to pick up the Zelda and Loftwing amiibo too, so you can warp back and forth from the sky at pretty much any time.

Ends Today: Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury On Sale

You've got until the end of today to secure $20 off one of the best games on Nintendo Switch. Mario 3D World brings online multiplayer and local coop play to the world of Super Mario, making for one of the best platformers on Switch.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Is 13% Off

Plus, it has four player multiplayer, so you can team up with friends and family as you battle Thanos and The Black Order.

PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Gaming Headset for $80.32

Amazon (via Amazon Global Store UK) is offering the PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset for only $80.32. That's a 20% discount from the MSRP of $99.99 and the lowest price we've seen for the official PlayStation 5 headset. Note that Amazon Global Store UK is part of Amazon, but your item will be shipped overseas from the UK. The shipping is free, fortunately, but you'll receive your package in about a week instead of 2 days.

We reviewed this headset and, like the very impressive DualSense controller, the quality and features noticeably enhanced our PS5's "next-gen" experience. There are other less expensive headsets that will get the job done, but the Pulse is the perfect PS5 complement without cutting any corners. If the only thing that had been holding you back was the hefty $100 price tag, then this deal might be just the excuse you were looking for.

Nier Replicant on PlayStation 4 Is $15 Off

Nier: Replicant is a great remake of the original, and you can grab it today for just $25 on PlayStation 4. The original Nier launched way back in 2010, so you most likely missed it if you jumped on board with the series for Nier Automata. Thankfully, you can experience the precursor to 2B's story now, complete with a great soundtrack, action-based gameplay, and an emotional story.

Razer Viper Ultimate Lightweight Wireless Gaming Mouse & RGB Charging Dock for $79.99

The Razer Kishi is a mobile controller for the Apple iPhone or Android that lets you easily play games via Xbox Cloud Gaming, Stadia, GeForce NOW, Steam Link, Amazon Luna and more.

The Apple iOS model connects to your iPhone via the Lightning port and should fit all iPhone 11 or newer models, including the iPhone 14. The Android model connects via USB Type-C.

Price Drop on the 2022 Sony A80K 55" and 65" 4K OLED TVs Specifically for PS5 and PC Gaming

Sony recently released its 2022 A80K OLED TV, catering specifically to PC and PS5 gamers. Today, Amazon has it dropped the price on both the 55" and 65" models, making them cheaper than the LG Evo C2 OLED TV, their direct competitor. The A80K uses a true 120Hz WOLED panel and has HDMI 2.1 ports, so it supports 4K @ 120Hz if you have a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped gaming PC. It also has variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM). Exclusive to select high end Sony TVs are PS5-specific features like Auto HDR Tone Mapping (similar to HGiG) for better HDR in games and Auto Genre Picture Switch. If you own a PS5, there's no other TV that's a better complement.

65" LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1797

This is the lowest price we've seen for the 2022 LG Evo C2 65" OLED TV. The LG C2 is currently one of the best TVs on the market. Unlike other brands who have only recently started pushing out OLED TVs, LG has several generations of improvements over the years. The C2 is the newest model and, unlike the previous generation C1, features an "Evo" OLED panel that offers higher peak brightness (the one area that OLED TVs in general could improve upon) and thus even wider HDR range.

The Evo C2 is also a perfect gaming TV. It has four HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel that supports true 4K @ 120Hz passthrough when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped PC. There's also variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV's version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay. The LG C2 also supports HGiG, which is automatically calibrated tone mapping specific to your TV model.

Cheap Rubber Encased Hex Dumbbells on Amazon

Deals like these aren't flashy, but they're very welcome.

New Release: $10 Off Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen

It has been almost three years since the 1st gen Apple AirPods Pro was released, so the 2nd gen AirPods Pro have plenty of upgrades under the hood, even if it hasn't aesthetically changed one bit. The biggest upgrade is the new Apple H2 chip, which promises better audio quality and improved active noice cancellation. There's also a new feature called "Adaptive Transparency Mode". This mode actually amplifies the ambient sound so that you can hear your surroundings better. In-ear earbuds traditionally have very good noise suppression even without active noise cancellation enabled, so this is a great way for people to listen in on the outside world without having to remove the earbuds.

40% Off HBO Max When You Prepay For a Year

Game of Thrones' House of the Dragon Premieres August 21

Instead you'd be paying $69.99 for 1 year of the ad-supported plan or $104.99 for 1 year of the ad-free plan. That's technically a savings of 41.6%.
