Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

Console gaming has really exploded over the last few generations, but there are still a fair number of people waiting to buy a new console when availability increases and prices drop. Luckily, there are some great Xbox Series S and X deals, PlayStation 5 deals, and Nintendo Switch deals out there, even if some of them involve refurbished models. So we’ve gone out and rounded up some of our favorite console deals and bundles, and have rounded them up for you below.

Xbox Series S 1TB — Starts at $349, was $380

Microsoft

The The Xbox Series S is the less powerful but cheaper option in the latest-generation Xbox lineup. When comparing the Xbox Series S to the Xbox Series X, the Series S takes a hit in every component category. That means it’s not as fast. But unless you’re fixated on getting the best performance out of your system, you’ll actually notice very little difference. The two biggest differences are that the Series S can’t play in 8K and it doesn’t have a disc drive. Most people don’t even have 8K TVs, so that shouldn’t be a problem. If you’re happy to download all your games directly to the console’s memory (and have a separate DVD or Blu-Ray player), the Series S will do just fine. It’s pretty small anyway, and easier to fit on a shelf.

Xbox Series X Refurbished + 2TB Storage Expansion Card — $750, was $860

The The Xbox Series X is all about power. It’s a great way to get into demanding graphics-intensive games without having to shell out thousands of dollars for a gaming PC deal. The Series X has super-fast loading times, the ability to play at 8K, and twice the internal storage. If you’re only going to settle for the best, then you should go for the Series X. It’s become much more affordable since its initial launch, but deals like the Series S aren’t often available.

PlayStation 5 with disc drive — $70 off Spider-Man 2 Bundle

The The PlayStation 5 is much easier to get your hands on than it was when it first launched. If you’re a Sony fan, this is your only option right now. Sony has significantly increased the power in the PS5. While the PS4 can run games in 4K and HDR, the PS5 practically requires it thanks to its library of great games. One of the biggest technological improvements for the PS5 is the haptic feedback on the controller. This allows you to pull down on the trigger slowly, providing resistance when things in the game are extra hard to pull off.

Nintendo Switch OLED Refurbished — Starting at $300

The Nintendo Switch is, in many ways, the ultimate portable gaming device. Everything Nintendo has released since the Gameboy has peaked here. That would be even more exciting if they were to put serious resources into making the mobile aspect as good as it could possibly be. For example, adding an OLED display. The Nintendo Switch OLED is an obvious upgrade that will be most exciting for those who love gaming on the go. If you don’t already have an OLED TV, you may find yourself playing it in handheld mode just for the gorgeous visuals. When you compare the Switch OLED to the standard Switch, the only real differences are the display and a slight memory upgrade. Unfortunately, there aren’t any good deals on bundles or consoles for the Nintendo Switch OLED at the moment, so if you’re looking to buy for less, you’re best off going with a refurbished version.

Refurbished Nintendo Switch — Starting at $270

If you're on this page, you know what a Nintendo Switch is and why you want one. To help convince you, here's a list of some of the games you can only play if you buy a Switch: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Super Mario Odyssey, Bayonetta 3, Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity, Luigi's Mansion 3, and more. Once you've purchased the console, check out our full list of the best Nintendo Switch games while you wait for it to be delivered to your home. As with the OLED version, there aren't many good deals on the Nintendo Switch right now, so if you're looking to save a bit, you might want to opt for a refurbished model.

Nintendo Switch Lite Refurbished — Starting at $180

The biggest advantage The Nintendo Switch Lite is the price. This isn’t a criticism of the console—this is a deals article, after all. It’s just that the Switch Lite doesn’t plug into your TV, so you can only play it in handheld mode. If that’s what you’re planning on doing anyway, consider buying an OLED Switch instead. The screen is a serious upgrade when you compare all the Switch versions. But if you just want a comfortable gaming device that will let you play all your favorite Nintendo exclusives, this is by far the easiest and cheapest option. That said, there aren’t many deals available right now, and the few we could find are remastered versions that don’t discount the Switch Lite too much.

PlayStation 5 Digital Edition (refurbished) – $449, was $500

Playstation 5 Digital Edition
Sony

Like Microsoft, Sony has released two versions of the PlayStation 5, one with a disc drive and one without. If you don’t mind downloading all your games, the disc-less version will suffice. You’ll have access to the same library of games and the same powerful internals. The difference isn’t huge, as most games these days require large downloads, even if you have the disc.
