(Pocket-lint) - Unlike other games consoles, stock for the Nintendo Switch is fairly plentiful.

Whether you're interested in buying the standard model, the premium Switch OLED or the handheld Switch Lite, you should have options.

Despite this, finding a good saving on the Nintendo consoles is actually pretty tough. That's where this guide can help.

Below, you'll find live widgets that account for stock, price and more - whether you're in the US, UK or Europe - allowing you to compare prices quickly and easily.

We have dedicated sections for all three models offered by Nintendo, and, for those weighing up Nintendo Switch is best, we've also included some basic things to consider when picking between the range.

So, without further ado, let's dive into the best Nintendo Switch deals available today.

Best Nintendo Switch OLED Deals

The Nintendo Switch OLED is officially available for £309.99 / $349.99 / €364.99.

It will come with a choice of Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con or white Joy-Con, with both available in the links below.

In our review of the Switch OLED, we praised its improved visuals and kickstand and described it as the best Switch of the lineup for newcomers to explore.

That's to be expected, of course, but it doesn't necessarily mean it's an essential upgrade for those who already own a Switch.

Best Nintendo Switch Deals 

The original Nintendo Switch is, in most ways, no less capable than the newer, shinier model - particularly for those who play mostly on their TV or monitor. In fact, with the all-new price tag (in the UK and Europe) as a result of the OLED model, this may represent a great time to finally pick up a Switch. 

You get much of the same experience, just without the OLED display on the unit itself, the improved kickstand, and the addition of an ethernet/LAN port in the dock. As it's also been around since 2017, there are various special editions to explore, too.

Here are the best current deals on the Switch console with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con:

If you want a bit more of a subtle look, here's live details of the Switch console with grey Joy-Con:

If you have a special edition in mind, there are also plenty of models to explore. Stock will almost certainly be rarer, and prices will often be higher, but keep track of these updating widgets to snare one.

Best Nintendo Switch Lite deals

Here are the latest deals for the Nintendo Switch Lite. The widget below focuses on the grey model of the console, but you may also find it cheaper in blue, turquoise, yellow or coral.

This model, as we dive into in our full Switch Lite review, is the ideal option for those who want to get in on the ground floor of the Switch ecosystem - and don't mind being constricted to handheld gaming.

How to choose a Nintendo Switch

Since the Nintendo Switch is a big purchase, it's important to know what you're getting yourself in for. As such, the below section will focus on answering some of the very basic queries or concerns you may have about the console.

What is a Nintendo Switch?

Put simply, the Nintendo Switch OLED and Switch are hybrid consoles that can be played in both handheld and docked-to-tv modes. This means it's both portable and a traditional home console in one package, with removable Joy-Con controllers allowing for easy two-player fun. 

The Switch Lite, on the other hand, is a bit different. It provides all the same handheld fun as the other two Switch models, but doesn't feature removable Joy-Con controllers or the ability to dock to an external display.

What games are available for Nintendo Switch?

The Switch offers arguably the most complete library of first-party games across any console platform.

There are hundreds of games to buy in either physical or digital form, with some of the exclusive highlights being The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario Odyssey, Pokemon Sword/Shield, and Mario Kart 8.

There are plenty more titles from these franchises - and you can check out more of the best Switch games in our complete roundup - but know that you do still have access to some third-party games, too, like Fortnite, FIFA, Minecraft, Assassin's Creed and The Witcher.

Switch vs Switch Lite vs Switch OLED - which is best?

We've covered the differences more extensively in our Switch vs Switch Lite and Switch OLED vs Switch features - as well as our full Switch buyer's guide - but, since all three provide different experiences and are available at quite different price points, we'll cover it briefly here.

Essentially, the Switch OLED provides the very best Switch experience money can buy right now - it has a better design than the original and has refined many of the shortcomings. That doesn't mean it represents the best value, though, with the cheaper, standard Switch still probably the best pick for most people.

The Switch Lite, meanwhile, is a bit different - it's purely handheld, doesn't feature Joy-Cons and can't be switched to the big screen.

It's ideal for those who love the Switch ecosystem and want more than one device without having to stretch to another dock model, those who simply aren't interested in docking the Switch or those who want to save a bit of cash.
