If you've already downloaded NBA Playgrounds, you can download the Enhanced Edition for Free. It's a new build of the game so you have to delete the old version (keep your save data) and download the new one. There's more info over at NintendoLife I'm not affiliated with the site, but I do check it most days.
Barely worth calling this a sale

I bought a Switch last week, so I'm on the lookout for games at decent prices. The console is reasonably priced, but the games are horrendously expensive relative to what I'm used to paying on Xbox/PC/PS4.

I really can't make my mind up about 1-2-Switch. It's much better value at that cost but even then I think it's too much for what appears to just be a tech demo than a real game.

As an aside; Arms is available for £39.99 which is really good!

Don't do it, I got it with my switch and like you say it's a good tech demo to show people and a little fun if you have a few mates around but in reality it is just tosh.

yep
Im tempted on NBA, obviously dragged into the 21st century but has a feel of NBA Jam on the Mega Drive. Loved that!
Picked up playgrounds, thanks
Can you let us know if its any good mate? Cheers
Can pick up NBA from us store for 10 dollars which is about £7.50 so a little saving
NBA looks like a fun game

I was hoping Resident Evil Revelations would have a couple of quid knocked off by now

It is overpriced but my 9yo daughter loves it and it can be pretty entertaining when friends or family are over etc. If you’re going to get use of it for those situations it’s probably worth it under £30, otherwise best to skip it
1-2 Switch is genuinely not worth that kind of money, imho.
Poor sale!
Almost picked up ARMS over New Year's, glad I didn't now! Thanks!
Still waiting for Stardew Valley and Zelda DLC to drop
Still can't make my mind up on a Switch, lack of bluetooth would annoy me as I use headset/earphones a lot on PS4/PC.

Funnily enough, Arms is the game I found really shallow in terms of content and replayability, v 1-2- switch.

'd also suggest that the only reason people feel there's a lack of value around 1-2 is that Nintendo used to bundle a game with their new consoles. Taken on its own, it has tons of content vs many other, equally priced titles.

I use my ps4 headphones with my switch. Dongle goes in the dock. Has been like that for a few months now.

Both cost peanuts. The BOTW DLC adds a lot, and Stardew is basically a cheaper version of Animal Crossing. I was very happy to buy both at full price

I disagree. 1-2- Switch is overpriced and that’s why people don’t like it

You will be waiting a long time for Zelda to drop.

I tried buying from the US store before, but my debit/visa card wouldn't work, neither did my Revolut virtual card, have you purchased from the US or Candian store before?

You can output sound from the dock while in handheld mode?
Don't have it myself but i've heard 1-2-switch is about as good as eating bees and that the switch should have just shipped with the game gratis, akin to how wii sports was shipped with wii's, or how altered beast was shipped with original megadrives.

Spend the extra tenner i say on Arms. what an unexpected good game that is...

Thats for docked. You'll need a usb to c adaptor for handheld afaik. I rarely use mine not docked so not 100%.

If using it handheld why not just use wired headphones?

But when docked you can use USB wireless headphones.

Because my devices are both bluetooth, and I like the freedom. It's just not ideal to be attached to it, for me anyway.
Looking at tumble stones. Was great on the Xbox one, it's surprisingly addictive in multiplayer modes.

Am tempted to grab it for the switch and save the rest of that PayPal deal (£20 credit for £15 for when a sale includes Blossoms tale of the sleeping king.

Never heard of this till you just mentioned it, been so many indie titles been released a lot go unnoticed, looks ok from vids on YouTube, cheaper in Norway shop, may be tempted..
Beware buying games from the eshop - there is no refund so if you don't like it, tough. If you buy a physical copy then at least you can sell it on.

So true! Stardew valley, Golf story, Steamdig world, even Rocket league, all deleted off my system after a few days, just couldn't get into them.. digital games should really have a demo to try first

@crazygoldfish Sadly I wanted to use the credit I have on my UK account so I'll wait until it drops if it ever does on the UK store , good price though, inline with prices on other platforms
@Dolphinzz I know I will definitely get my use out of them but with my backlog the way it is I can definitely wait a while to see if they drop . I expect Stardew Valley to drop at some point but not so much Zelda DLC
