There are few things quite as enjoyable as local multiplayer gaming, and nothing beats saving money on tech that doesn’t usually come on sale. The Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers are a great example of this, going for $69.99 at Woot instead of its usual price of $79.99. Woot is running this offer until Sunday, March 20 or until it sells out. The neon blue and red controller combo is not currently available, but the matching gray set is still on sale at this discounted price.
It is rare to get any discount on Joy-Con controllers. In many games, an individual Joy-Con is usable as a small gamepad, meaning you can play four-player local multiplayer with just those Joy-Cons and the pair that came with your Switch. What perfect timing, because the first wave of new courses for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches this week. Don’t throw the little controllers at your friends or loved ones when they rush past you in the race.
The 65-inch Sony Bravia A80J OLED TV is available for $1,798 on Amazon and BuyDig. This roughly $400 discount brings this set back to its best price yet. Sony’s OLEDs tend to hold steady at their premium prices, but on top of that deep discount, BuyDig is sweetening the deal by offering a four-year accidental coverage plan at no extra cost.
The A80J has a 120Hz refresh rate and HDMI 2.1 ports, plus Dolby Vision HDR – everything you’d expect from an OLED TV released in 2021. A recent firmware update enabled variable refresh rate (VRR) for games, which at this time the Xbox Series X is able to take advantage of – Sony has yet to update its own PlayStation 5 with VRR support to take advantage of this feature . If you’re choosing a screen for watching lots of movies and shows or even use on a next-gen console, this is great value for a 65-inch OLED from Sony.
The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are on sale for just $54.99 at Best Buy. That’s a whopping $95 off their original price. Graphite and Lavender colorways get the extra special price of $54.99, while other colors range from $59.99 to $79.99.
These feature noise cancellation, wireless charging, and good quality sound for songs and podcasts. The problem here, of course, is that these headphones are refurbished. Best Buy claims these have been refreshed to “like new” condition. Maybe for some the idea of used headphones is a bit crude, but if the price is tempting enough, it’s good to know that these headphones can be returned within 15 days if you change your mind. , and they have a 90 day warranty.
This offer makes a great pairing for budget Galaxy phone users. Read our review.
Seagate Infinite Halo 5TB Game Drive edition is $129.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. This large capacity external drive is designed for use with Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles to dramatically increase their storage capacity. While the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have 1TB and 512GB SSDs respectively, they can quickly fill up with big games of 80-100GB each. The Game Drive lets you offload games you’re not actively playing but are still taking up that precious SSD space, then transfer it again when it’s time to go back. Plus, you can play older, backward-compatible games directly from the external drive.
This Infinite Halo gives this hard drive a bit more style, with a Spartan green armor colorway inspired by Master Chief. Because, why not?
