Holiday Top Tech with Best Buy: Nintendo Switch!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Toys, Video Games

Best Buy has looked through all the recent hardware gadget releases, and the company has put together it's Holiday Top Tech list for 2017, which will be rolling out soon. While we wait for the full list to drop, Best Buy has tasked me with revealing one of the hot items that you'll find on the list - the Nintendo Switch!

If you've somehow missed the phenomenon that is the Nintendo Switch, it's the first console in history that is both a complete home console with high-definition graphics while simultaneously being a completely portable console that allows you to play your game library on the go. The Nintendo Switch launched back on March 3rd, and since then, it's been difficult to find in stock both online and in stores up until about a month ago.

In addition to the ground-breaking dual-purpose nature of the Switch, the console also boasts one of the best games to ever be released in the history of gaming - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Breath of the Wild has garnered unprecendented critical acclaim, with review scored placing it at or near the top. If you are picking up a Nintendo Switch, then Breath of the Wild is a no-brainer - you can pick up the latest Zelda title for $59.99.

The Nintendo Switch has also garnered a bunch of attention in the third-party accessory space. I took the time to name my Top 5 Nintendo Switch Accessories in a video, some for fun, others essential (like adding in a microSD card to expand the storage space of your console!)

Ultimately, who is the Nintendo Switch for? Everyone! Obviously, kids love the Nintendo magic - but those of us who grew up gaming in the 80s and 90s have the nostalgia. I've seen everyone from students, to parents, to business travelers using the Nintendo Switch on airplanes and around town.

Stay tuned for more from the Holiday Top Tech list, where Best Buy has identified all of the best gear and coolest tech of the season! In the meantime, you can pick up the Nintendo Switch for $299.99 right now!
