The deals are thin today, but there are a few that are worth sharing with you. If you already have a Switch or are planning to get the OLED model launching in October, youâ€™ll definitely want to get Horiâ€™s Split Pad Pro controllers. You can get them in the translucent black colorway (in my opinion, the best option available) for $40 at Amazon, which is $10 off their normal price. These slide in just like Joy-Con controllers but are more accommodating for larger hands than Nintendoâ€™s. They make the Switch less portable, but it might be worth it for you. Unlike Joy-Con, though, these donâ€™t feature rumble, and they only work while connected to the Switch.
If you need more convincing, check out my colleague Sam Byfordâ€™s hands-on with the Split Pad Pro.
Hori Split Pad Pro
- 20% off
Horiâ€™s take on the Nintendo Switch Pro controller but split into two separate pieces. The Split Pad Pro is a good Joy-Con alternative for people who primarily play their Nintendo Switch in handheld mode.

I featured this deal yesterday, but it bears repeating if youâ€™ve been trying and failing to find Microsoftâ€™s Xbox Wireless headset in stock. It normally costs $100 by itself, but thereâ€™s a deal happening at eBay that includes a month of Game Pass Ultimate (normally $15) for a total of $107. Get it while itâ€™s still available, which may not be for much longer as the eBay listing says it has a limited supply.
