The current offers at a glance
Nintendo Switch in a bundle from 334.99 euros
The Nintendo Switch hasn’t been cheap in the past few months. The corona pandemic caused a run on the offers, the warehouses were soon empty. But now the console is back. Amazon offers them in combination with various games.
The dealer sells the 2019 updated model with a better battery in the version with neon blue and neon red Joy-Con. The Switch is especially popular because it offers so many different gaming options. It can be connected to the television, used as a tablet with its own controller or as a handheld console. It can also function as a board game thanks to the touchscreen.
Amazon currently offers three bundles. Together with one of the most popular games of 2020, “Animal Crossing: New Horizons”, they are available for 334.99 euros. If you want to have the game “Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020” instead, you will also pay 334.99 euros for the console game set. At 359.99 euros, the following set is slightly more expensive, but it also includes two Switch games: “51 Worldwide Games” and “Super Mario Party”.
A price comparison is not easy due to the bundles. However, the Nintendo Switch alone currently costs 309 euros from the cheapest provider, so that the game costs just under 25 euros – a really good offer.
Refurbished PlayStation 4 from 169 euros
The PS5 is coming soon, but that doesn’t make the PlayStation 4 any less popular. Amazon is offering the slim version for Prime Day in several versions, all of which are available for less than 200 euros. However, these are refurbished consoles. They come from returns or the like and can have small, optical defects. However, Amazon guarantees full technical functionality and also gives a guarantee on the PS4.
Unlike the PS4 Pro, the SLIM doesn’t support 4K graphics. The performance is also a bit weaker. In the version with 500 GB hard drive and a DualShock controller, Amazon is currently selling it for 169.99 euros. As new, the prices are around 250 euros.
The version with 1 terabyte hard drive has twice as much storage space. It is available from Amazon for 179.99 euros – the surcharge for the extra storage is therefore very low. A wireless controller and the usual accessories are also included here. The new PS4 Slim with 1 TB costs from 289 euros.
Logitech G502 Hero gaming mouse for 39.99 euros
This wired gaming mouse offers numerous personalization options such as eleven programmable buttons, additional weights and RGB lighting. The mouse wheel is a 4-way wheel with which you can also scroll horizontally. Under the hood sits a well-known 16K Hero sensor with 16,000 CPI (specified by the manufacturer as DPI), which transmits hand movements with high accuracy to the screen thanks to its precise scanning.
Amazon is offering the gaming mouse for 39.99 euros. The lowest comparison price is 45.94 euros including shipping.
Logitech G512 SE gaming keyboard
Amazon also has a real gaming keyboard to match the mouse. For Prime Day 2020 there is the G512 SE from Logitech. The keyboard comes with mechanical GX Blue switches, which have a precise and clearly audible and noticeable pressure point. You can find out whether the Blue Switches are right for you in our gaming keyboard guide . The processing with high-quality aircraft aluminum is excellent. Multimedia controls and USB passthrough (additional USB port on the keyboard) are also on board. The RGB backlighting of the keys can be freely set and adapted as required. Even programmable lighting effects are possible. The keyboard layout is German.
At Amazon, the Logitech G512 SE costs 79 euros. Other retailers, however, sell them for well over 100 euros, which is why the offer definitely has bargain potential.
PS 4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch?
Would you like a new console, but don’t know which one suits you best? TECHNOLOGYBUTTON reveals in detail which type of gamer should use which device . So the bargain guarantees plenty of fun.
Is it still worth buying a current console now?
With the PlayStation 5, the next generation of consoles is already in the starting blocks for Christmas 2020. Microsoft has announced its new Xbox for November. But that does not mean that you should no longer access the current models. Because it is precisely for this reason that the offers this year should undercut all those that have been there so far. In addition, gamers can fall back on the games portfolio from previous years. The same applies to Microsoft’s Xbox One. With the Nintendo Switch, things are even better. The compact console will not have a successor this year and will therefore be the first choice for fans of Mario & Co. for a long time to come.
