12 Days of Christmas gaming consoles

On Day 3 of our 12 days of Christmas Gifts we’re exploring the latest and greatest in gaming consoles. This time of year there are always amazing bundles that include this season’s hottest games. Let’s take a look at the Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation options available this holiday!

Nintendo Switch Bundles

Nintendo Switch Red Blue JoyCon RabbidsFor Nintendo fans there’s the Nintendo Switch with Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con & Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Mario + Rabbids is a brand new crossover franchise featuring Nintendo’s Mario characters and Ubisoft’s mischievous Rabbids. It’s a turn-based tactical game that turns the familiar Mushroom Kingdom setting upside down. Ever wanted to know what happens when you mix Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Yoshi with those unpredictable Rabbids? Now you can in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle!

Nintendo Switch Gray JoyCon Rabbids

Another option is the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con & Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. It’s the same bundle as mentioned above except the Joy-Con controllers are both gray. Ultimately it comes down to your own personal preference—go for vibrant colours, or go for a traditional gray.

Since its March launch, Nintendo Switch has remained one of the hottest gadgets of the year. And for good reason: Nintendo Switch has built an incredible library of games. From Super Mario Odyssey, to Splatoon 2, to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’ll find it all on Nintendo Switch.

Xbox bundles

Xbox One S 1TB Limited Minecraft Edition BundleWhile Xbox One X has taken the lion’s share of hype this holiday, the Xbox One S is where you’ll find great gaming bundles. Microsoft has come out with a whole line-up of bundles that pack in amazing games. Some of your Xbox One S options include:

Xbox One S 500GB Forza Horizon 3

As you can see, there are Xbox bundles available for all types of gamers. Whether you enjoy building worlds, off-road racing, or the biggest action games, you’ll find them all on Xbox. Of course if you want to go big, there’s also Microsoft’s newer, more powerful Xbox One X console. This machine is has been designed from the ground-up as a 4K gaming monster; games simply look better on X. As well, if you want an Xbox One S 500GB Console without a pack-in game, that’s available too.
