The Nintendo Switch has become exceptionally popular. It’s selling well and is more popular right now than an Xbox and the PlayStation. That is by no means an easy feat for a console that’s only been around for a little over a year. Granted, Nintendo is no stranger to consoles but this is easily one of its best performing ones. Since the console is a different gaming platform, games have to be developed specifically for it. Nintendo Switch games can be downloaded from the Switch Game Store. Like most gaming platforms, these games too go on sale. If you have your eye on a particular title, you might want to sign up for alerts for when a Nintendo Switch games is on sale with NintyPricer.
