expiredPre-order PowerA’s sleek CTR Enhanced Nintendo Switch Controller for $30 shipped (Reg. $45)

Amazon is offering the PowerA CTR Enhanced Wireless Controller for $29.99 shipped. Note: This is a pre-order and will not ship until it is released on June 20th. Today’s deal is roughly $15 off when compared with the standard version and is the best pre-order offer we’ve seen. You don’t have to be a fan of Crash Team Racing to love this controller. The pairing of black and orange looks excellent and is sure to stand out to other Switch players. If you haven’t used a full-size controller while playing Switch, you’ll love how much more comfortable the experience will be. Since this is a pre-order, there are not reviews yet. Rest assured, PowerA is reputable.

expiredPowerA’s Mario Silhouette Nintendo Switch Enhanced Controller returns to $40 (Reg. up to $50)

Amazon is offering the PowerA Nintendo Switch Enhanced Wireless Controller (Mario Silhouette) for $39.99 shipped. That’s $10 off what GameStop is charging and matches the lowest price we have tracked. If you’re still playing with Joy-Con controllers, it’s time you upgraded to a Pro-style alternative. I find the form-factor much more comfortable to use and this PowerA offering even sports a slick red design with a silhouette of Nintendo’s iconic mushroom-devouring character in the middle. Rated 4.5/5 stars.

expiredNintendo Switch + game of your choice, Mario pins & a USB-C hub for $330 ($390+ value)

Walmart is now offering Nintendo Switch with a game of your choice, an Ematic USB-C + Card Reader Hub and a set of collectible Mario pins for $329.99 shipped. Switch is regularly $300, each of the available games are about $60 each, the adapter goes for $27 and this is a $5 pin set. In other words, you’re saving roughly $62 with today’s deal. The game choices (Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, more) are quite notable here as well. While not as good a value as a very similar bundle from last year — that option included a backpack instead of the USB/card reader hub — this is the currently best price we can find on Nintendo Switch. More details below.

The Nintendo Switch is in millions of homes nationwide. It’s in my home, and several of my friends’ homes, and many of your homes. Nintendo needed this win after the failed Wii U launch following its successful Wii. To no one’s surprise, Nintendo has sold an exorbitant amount of Switch units, but just how many has really baffled me.

From 9to5Mac:

Nintendo has been on a path that I, and a lengthy list of other tech-invested people, have long warned about. Its tone-deaf approach to online, its resistance to adopt new technologies, and most importantly — the existence of the iPhone — have all been bad signs for Nintendo. My advice to the Kyoto-based company up until now? Adapt, or succumb to a slow, painful death at the hands of mobile.

That was the way I used to think just a mere six months ago. Then the Switch happened…

Although I have a TV, my 5K iMac’s display is the one that I use the most throughout the day. With this in mind, I’ve long wished for the ability to play game consoles directly on the 5K display.

An HDMI input option isn’t something you’ll find on any Mac, which obviously limits the the machine’s abilities in this area. Yet, there is one option — Elgato’s GameCapture HD60 S — for those of you wishing to showcase a game console, like the Nintendo Switch, on the iMac’s display.

Normally thought of for its capturing abilities, the HD60 S, which features superior low-latency properties, does a great job of displaying the Nintendo Switch in full screen 1080p at 60 fps. It’s not perfect, and it’s definitely not cheap, but it’s one of the best solutions that I’ve found for using the iMac as an external display. Have a look at our hands-on video walkthrough for more details on my setup. expand full story

The Nintendo Switch is the toy I’ve been playing with non-stop from the day I bought it. If I’m not writing about the latest in Android over at 9to5Google, I’m obsessively looking for shrines in Breath of the Wild or making my way through a Grand Prix in MarioKart 8: Deluxe.

When I picked up my Nintendo Switch, all that was available was the standard looking gray option. It works, but it’s pretty generic. Then, I decided to pick up a set of neon JoyCons to give the console a bit of color, since skins just don’t work with it. However, neon just didn’t feel like me, I wanted something more personal. That’s when Colorware announced that it was extending its services to the Switch. Needless to say, I got pretty excited and now, I’ve got a set of custom JoyCons that are exactly what I wanted with the Switch.
