Have you been on the fence about purchasing the Nintendo Switch? If you’ve been waiting for a deal that saves you some money in the process, consider what Best Buy is now offering. The retailer will provide customers who purchase a new Nintendo Switch console with one free game. The promotion does provide considerable bang for the buck.
Given just how popular the Nintendo Switch has proven to be, it was always understood that the console won’t receive any meaningful discounts for the foreseeable future. That still happens to be the case and most customers just saved some money by using eBay’s site-wide coupons and even they don’t seem to be available anymore for the Switch.
Nintendo’s Smash Bros. franchise typically features characters from games that are playable on the company’s consoles (typically), which is why when Nintendo announced that Joker from Persona 5 would be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, many were surprised. It also seemed to hint that Persona 5 could be coming to the Switch.
In case you needed more evidence of that happening, an image has made its way online in which it shows an alleged Best Buy terminal that shows that Persona 5 is indeed coming to the Switch console. This is by no means a confirmation, but it does seem to line up with previous rumors and speculation.
Nintendo’s Switch online service has been confirmed to launch in the second half of September. For those who are intending on signing up for it, you might be interested to learn that both Best Buy and GameStop are now selling the subscriptions on their respective websites (Best Buy/GameStop).
The subscriptions are priced the same as what Nintendo is offering so it doesn’t make a difference who you buy it from, unless you have a preference for a particular retailer. This means that if you are interested in the 3 month membership, it will be priced at $7.99, while the 12 month membership will retail for $19.99.
Reports from last year suggested that Netflix for the Nintendo Switch was ready for launch and pending approval from Nintendo. That clearly did not happen as fast forward more than half a year later, we're still waiting. In fact earlier this year there were reports that suggested that Netflix for the Switch would still be quite a ways away.
However could Nintendo surprise us at E3 2018? According to a recent listing on Best Buy, it seems that they have hinted that both Netflix and YouTube will be available on the Nintendo Switch. The listing also mentions Hulu which is already launched on the Switch, so it seems that there is a chance this listing could be accurate.
It has not even been a couple of months since Sony unveiled the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona back in February. If you liked what you saw and wanted to pick one up then you will be delighted to find out that Sony’s latest smartphones will soon be available for purchase from Amazon and Best Buy in the United States. Many Sony fans will likely be interested in these handsets given that they come with some substantial design changes that were missing from previous iterations.
Some of the design changes that Sony has made include a curved glass back for the XZ2 and slimmer bezels on both models. They also adopt the 18:9 aspect ratio for the display which is a big trend this year as well as a rear fingerprint sensor.
