UK buyers can pick up the white version of the Nintendo Switch OLED at Amazon for just £284.99, a saving of £25 over the usual £310 retail price. We're still waiting on Nintendo Switch OLED deals in the US, but if they're not happening now, they'll likely show up during the sales event itself which is taking place between July 11 - 12.
What's even better is that the Limited Edition Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom OLED Switch is also down to a discounted price. It can be yours for £294.99 at Amazon right now (was £319.99). This doesn't include the game unfortunately, but is still a beautiful Switch console with a terrific design - and it's a lowest ever price
Now, it's worth noting that these are not the absolute best Amazon Prime Day Nintendo Switch OLED deals. During last year's event, the console was reduced to £284 at several retailers including Amazon (so a further 99p off). We would not be surprised if these early deals are adjusted during the event itself, to offer a more competitive discount to what was available last year.
This is just the start of what's to come during Amazon Prime Day 2023. We're also expecting some strong price drops for Amazon Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals if you'd prefer to own the standard console. We'd also like to encourage you to keep an eye on our Prime Day gaming deals page for a general overview of the best discounts across the event period.
Best early UK Prime Day Nintendo Switch deal:
Nintendo Switch OLED - White:
was £309 now £284.99 Amazon
Save £25 - While not the absolute best Nintendo Switch OLED discount we've ever seen, it's a great price and also potentially a good sign of things to come. However, if you're looking for a steeper price drop, we recommend holding out for Prime Day itself so long as stocks last.
Also available in: Neon Blue/Red - £284.99 at Amazon
Nintendo Switch OLED - Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Limited Edition:
was £319.99 now £294.44 at Amazon
Save £25 - This is a record-low price for the beautiful Tears of the Kingdom edition, so don't wait around if you've been eyeing it up! (Remember, it doesn't come with the game, though.)
We warmly received the Nintendo Switch OLED in our review. Citing its gorgeous 7-inch 720p OLED screen which allows the best Nintendo Switch games to really pop visually, it's a significant upgrade over the base Nintendo Switch model. That is, so long as you're playing in portable mode.
If you're staying docked, the OLED doesn't provide much in the way of improvements aside from an improved 64GB of storage and a new ethernet port which is ideal for online play. For portable players, the upgrade is worth it. The OLED screen packs a punch, yes, but so do the enhanced speakers and a much-improved kickstand to keep the console secure on most flat surfaces.
