The Nintendo Switch is hands down the hottest device in consumer electronics right now. It’s impossible to buy in stores, and it’s nearly as difficult to find online. In fact, the only way you can get one right now is to pay a premium and buy a Nintendo Switch from a reputable seller on Amazon.

If you’re lucky enough to already have a Switch though, you know that there are two things you absolutely need that don’t come in the box. The first is at least one game (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the obvious choice), single the Switch is useless otherwise. And the other thing you’ll need is an extra Joy-Con controller unless you only plan to play by yourself.

Well, if you waited on buying a second Joy-Con, you’re in luck. Despite how insanely popular everything Switch-related is right now, Amazon has discounted the gray Joy-Con for a short time.

Here are some details from the product page (not that you need them):

  • Introducing Joy-Con, controllers that make new kinds of gaming possible, for use with Nintendo Switch.
  • The versatile Joy-Con offer multiple surprising new ways for players to have fun.
  • Two Joy-Con can be used independently in each hand, or together as one game controller when attached to the Joy-Con grip
  • They can also attach to the main console for use in handheld mode, or be shared with friends to enjoy two-player action in supported games.
  • Each Joy-Con has a full set of buttons and can act as a standalone controller, and each includes an accelerometer and gyro-sensor, making independent left and right motion control possible.

This sale could be over at any time, so definitely jump on it while you can.
