LOOKING for a great console deal during the coronavirus lockdown? You’re not alone.
Gamers are desperate for cheap console bundles, so we’ve tracked down the most tempting PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch offers out there.
If you’re spending more time at home, a console isn’t a bad investment.
And prices on console bundles are fairly low right now – as retailers bid for your attention in these strange times.
Also, consoles are extremely cheap for another reason: the Xbox Series X and PS5 are both due to launch later this year.
But that won’t happen until much closer to Christmas, so there’s plenty of gaming to be had in the meantime.
Cheapest Xbox bundle – our favourite deal revealed
The best Xbox deal we’ve found so far is on an Xbox One S all-digital edition – with 1TB of storage.
This GAME bundle gets you the digital-only console, which means it doesn’t have a disc drive.
Instead, you simply download games over the internet.
It also comes with Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, Fortnite Battle Royale DLC and a Now TV pass.

Another good option is this Xbox One S (proper, not digital-only) with Gears 5.
It’s got 1TB of storage and comes with one of the best games of the last year.

Cheapest PS4 bundle – our favourite deal revealed
By far the best PS4 bundle we’ve seen is from Amazon.
You can get a PS4 (500GB) with three very excellent games for just £249.99.
And if you’re a Prime member, you get delivery at no extra cost.
The games in the bundle include Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and The Last of Us Remastered.
You also get the Frozen Wilds expansion pack for Horizon Zero Dawn.

Cheapest Nintendo Switch bundle – our favourite deal revealed
For some reason, good Nintendo Switch bundles are extremely difficult to come by right now.
Animal Crossing is the hit game of the moment, so this is the best bundle we’ve been able to find.
- Nintendo Switch bundle at Argos for £329.99 – buy here
It doesn’t save you any money, but Argos offers credit plans – which may be an easier way for you to pay (with the usual caveat: don’t buy what you can’t afford).
And Argos does offer some add-on deals for accessories and additional games.
