The handheld-only console runs all your favourite Switch games

Ever since the original Nintendo Switch console launched back in 2017, it has been flying off shelves. Nintendo has managed to brush off the disastrous launch of the Wii U with its portable console that has proven popular with gamers of all ages.

In 2019, the company released the Nintendo Switch lite, a handheld-only iteration of the Nintendo Switch console that was more affordable, lighter and smaller than its beefier, dockable brother.

Both consoles are rarely on sale, so we were pleased to see this deal on an A-grade refurbished lite console from Argos pop up on its official eBay store, which is completely run by the retailer.

The Nintendo Switch lite usually starts at around £199, with bundles starting from £219 with selected games. This deal doesn’t include any games, but it’s one of the cheapest standalone Nintendo Switch lite deals we’ve ever seen. Don’t be put off by the fact that it’s a refurb, however, because it comes with a 12-month Argos guarantee.

At the time of writing, there are only seven consoles available, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to benefit from this deal. Hopefully Argos will have more in stock soon. Read on to find out how you can get the console.

Nintendo Switch lite: Was £199.99, now £149.99, Ebay.com

The Nintendo Switch lite may well register as the best handheld console ever made, with the Switch’s entire catalogue of original games available for you to play. In our round-up of the best game’s consoles, our reviewer said that “this is the ideal console for those looking to play while on the go”.

The Switch lite offers much of the same functionality as the Nintendo Switch, but exists only as a portable console. There is no TV dock, no detachable controllers – it is more suited to solo and online play than the party vibe of the regular Switch

It will last seven hours on a single charge, so it is great for those long car trips away when you go travelling this summer. As mentioned above, it’s an A-grade refurbished model, and you get peace of mind knowing the console has a 12-month guarantee. The eBay store is run by Argos, so you know you’re in safe hands.
