So the lowest price we’ve ever seen on Amazon for a Switch Lite is £169, which was above Prime Day last year. It fills us with hope that this year we will also see a drop in prices. And there shouldn’t be long to wait to find out!

That’s £6 off the best price ever and well worth a buy if you’re in the market for one.
