Nintendo Switch Black Friday 2017 Ads Early Deals: Consoles, Games, And Accessories On Sale

Black Friday 2017 is nearly upon us, and that means plenty of game deals are on the horizon. While more limited than those available for PS4 or Xbox One, that includes offers for Nintendo Switch games, as well as an opportunity to pick up the hardware itself–albeit without any kind of discount. Some discounts are even live early, ahead of Black Friday.
Nintendo Switch itself appears in a variety of the Black Friday ads we've gotten a look at so far, but this is seemingly only intended to signal that it will be in stock. All of them–GameStop, Best Buy, and Target–list it for its usual $300 price (except for Walmart, which sells it for $299). Likewise, we've unfortunately seen no discounts on Joy-Cons or the Switch Pro Controller, although Walmart will have third-party wired controllers for $17. Other accessories on sale include a PowerA Joy-Con Charging Station for $20 at Best Buy, and Mario- and Zelda-themed controller chargers (for both Joy-Cons and Pro Controllers) for $..

Nintendo Switch, Xbox One X, And Call Of Duty: WW2 Help GameStop Have Strong Quarter

Following the news that GameStop CEO Paul Raines had stepped aside due to the reoccurrence of a health issue, the video game store reported earnings for its third quarter ended October 28. Total sales rose 1.5 percent to $1.99 billion, while profit was $59.4 million, as compared to $50.8 million during the same period last year.
Hardware sales at GameStop for the quarter rose by 8.8 percent, driven by demand for the Nintendo Switch. Management said it expects demand to continue to outpace supply for the hybrid console this holiday, adding that it's working closely with Nintendo to get more units in stores. The Xbox One X launch was also a bright spot, GameStop said, noting that it sold through its “market-leading” allocation right away.
Game sales also rose during the quarter, by 5.4 percent, thanks to a “strong title lineup,” GameStop said. The retailer added that Call of Duty: WWII sales are up by a massive 64 percent compared to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare last year on a dol..
