Amazon currently has a small discount on the classic Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con, cutting the price to $274 with a $25 savings that applies at checkout.

It may not be a blowout Black Friday deal, but just about any discount is better than the full price, which is the norm for the Switch. This deal also gets you the version of the Nintendo Switch that offers the original launch aesthetic with different-colored Joy-Con. Even though it has the original stylings, this is the upgraded model that came out not long after the Nintendo Switch launched to improve battery life.

With the standard Nintendo Switch, you get the option to play multiple ways. With the included dock and removable Joy-Con — a feature omitted by the Switch Lite — you can connect the console to your TV for big-screen gaming or set the Switch down on a table and play with the controls wirelessly. The Switch’s flexibility and wonderful assortment of hit games are its claims to fame, and with a $25 discount, you can get a head start on building out your game library.
