Check out Best Buy's 2018 Cyber Monday Deals

As reported by Nintendo, the Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in US history over that five-day period, with holiday sales increasing by 115 percent on 2017. Both Pokemon Let's Go games - Pikachu and Eevee have sold over 1.5 million units combined, since their launch on November 16th.

Switch sales were up 115%, the company said, putting the life to date sales number at 8.2 million.

Super Mario Party surpassed lifetime USA sales of 1 million units, becoming the fastest-selling game in the Mario Party series and the fifth million-selling first-party Nintendo Switch game in the US alone, joining The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2.

It's no secret that the holiday season is a big time for everyone in the gaming industry, with Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo offering huge deals on each of their consoles.

One of the other random pieces of this sale is the Linksys Velop mesh networking system.

Cyber Monday 2018 has arrived with fresh online sales on this year's hottest toys and electronics, with discounts on everything from a new iPhone to a 4K TV and more. During the five-day Thanksgiving weekend, Nintendo sold 1 million games, a 78% jump over 2017.

I have rambled on at length about whether or not you should buy a Pro Controller for the Nintendo Switch, but my personal experience is this: It's an awesome peripheral, and it costs too much money.

Nintendo's eshop includes a wide variety of indie titles as well as most major game releases for the system.
