    you can get a cheap set of accessories off ebay. that includes a glass screen protector, carry case and i can't remember what else is included for like £7. whereas the orzly screen protector on it's own is like £8.

    i got the orzly grip case though at £11 it makes it much better to use on the go and protects the console too.

    if you are using docked mainly then get a LAN adapter £13 on amazon for usb 3.0 version don't buy official version it's a rip off. in fact a lot of official products are rip offs including the controllers.

    if you have a ps4 or xbox one you can use their controllers (only 1 though) using an 8bitdo dongle i linked to it a page or two back.

    get snipperclips, death squared, rogue aces, soccer slammers there are a ton of cheap games less than £10 worth buying.

    I could not see anything that great online from trusted sellers. To be honest if you just want the unit then get it from John Lewis at £279 and get the 2 year warranty. I would do that but that means driving into the city. I needed it for the weekend with kids birthday and so on

    sweet good to know, i am really getting into that game now :)

    edit: jimlad look up new mario brothers wii u deluxe, if you never had a wii u it is a good game to pick up, i had mad fun in the 2 player mode and it goes up to 4 players on the same screen, classic 2d style mario and comes with the addon pack game as well @ 1080p :)

    here's what i got in the sale - i got a few others too can't remember them all

    https://eshop-prices.com/games/92-disc-jam?currency=GBP

    it's a combination of tennis/badminton and air hockey

    https://eshop-prices.com/games/934-overcooked-2?currency=GBP

    https://eshop-prices.com/games/1603-road-redemption?currency=GBP

    the above is road rash from mega drive days but much better with more stuff to do and with pick ups

    https://eshop-prices.com/games/236-rocket-league?currency=GBP

    https://eshop-prices.com/games/721-rogue-aces?currency=GBP

    seemed a fun game

    the next one i didn't buy but i was close to buying it

    https://eshop-prices.com/games/1238-super-inefficient-golf?currency=GBP

    it's golf where you use bombs to move the ball you control when the bombs go off and how many bombs to use. i didn't get it because it looked like it would get boring quick but golf fans may like it.

    I am hesitating with disc jam as we just play smash or overcooked when I'm with friends now.

    it's a completely different type of game at only 5 bux i think it's worth it. it's not something you can play for hours though.

    i would just set it to south africa and be done with it
    90% of prices are cheapest in south africa or south africa usually top 3 cheapest 90% of the time

    so change your region to south africa on website.

    login using console (just put your password in as normal).

    then buy using a fee free card like Halifax clarity, revolut, etc.

    basically games are different prices all over the world with south africa 9 times out of 10 being the cheapest.

    Change your region on the Nintendo website, buy your game, and then change it back.

    Some countries (e.g. USA and Mexico) are a pain because you can't use a common UK credit/Debit card on them. Revolut or eShop vouchers can be the solution for those but I just buy on the South Africa store as it's almost as good as Mexico for some games and a lot better for others.
