When is Black Friday 2020?

2020, as I'm sure you're already aware, is a bit different than other years. Retailers have been offering gifts throughout the month of November as a way to lessen the strain on the already overtaxed delivery system.

That said, the week of November 23 is known as Black Friday Week with a number of great deals available. Black Friday itself takes place traditionally on the day following Thanksgiving. This year it's Friday, November 27th.

Sales this year have already kicked off before Black Friday and should continue through Cyber Monday, which is November 30. Deals could last between a few minutes to days depending on the popularity of the items being sold. Make plans to be speedy this year; the deals may go faster than Santa traveling around the world.

What is Nintendo?

Did you know that Nintendo started as a playing card (painted by hand!) company in Japan back in 1889? It's true! Nintendo struck gold when they released Donkey Kong, a coin-operated video game, in 1980. The rest, as they say, is history.

Mario and Donkey Kong opened the door to many other characters and adventures throughout the years mostly with in-home game consoles. The Nintendo Entertainment System was released to excited acclaim in 1985.

Games like what could be found in the arcades were now good enough to be played at home. Super Mario Bros., the follow-up to Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Mario Bros., was a certified hit. The 8-bit NES sold over 60 million units and was a cultural phenomenon.

Since then, Nintendo has released succeedingly progressive consoles like the Super Nintendo and the motion-controlled Wii. Nintendo also made portable gaming a reality with the first Game Boy. To say that Nintendo is a master of video game excellence is an understatement.

What is the Nintendo Switch?

After the success of the Nintendo Wii, the company hit a snag with the Wii U which was a retool of the original Wii system. The cornerstone of the Wii U, a detachable screen that allowed for gamers to take their adventures on the road, was a highlight that made it into the latest Nintendo console: the Switch.

The Nintendo Switch is a video game console that provides three playing modes: TV to use with a large television, handheld to play as a portable gaming system, or tabletop that allows gameplay with a friend.

Games for the Switch have been universally celebrated including the immersive world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Smash Bros. It's safe to say that Mario and friends will be around for a long time to come.

The Switch comes in a home console version as well as a Lite version for the ultimate in portability. Either will appeal to your average college student.

The video game console has been insanely popular since it was released so bargains have been hard to come by. That's okay, though: deals on games and accessories look to be very good in 2020.
