  • Check out Best Buy's 2018 Cyber Monday Deals

Right now, there are some insane deals on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch at retailers around the internet.

The shadow of Black Friday still looms, however, as most of the Cyber Monday deals we've been able to find are simply leftovers from last week's shopping holiday.

Consumers in the United States spent over $250 million on Nintendo products from Thanksgiving through to Cyber Monday, and the Switch was the star of the show.

It surpassed the Wii sales with a +117% change as compared to a year ago. This includes the recently released Pokémon: Lets Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Lets Go, Eevee! games, as well as the upcoming Super Smash Bros. The 3DS has now sold 22 million units in North America, the NES Classic has sold 2 million, and the SNES Classic has sold 2.5 million. Year-over year, sales of the console over those five days were up by 115%.

It boasts a fresh interior and exterior design, while showcasing some all-new technologies including its first plug-in hybrid . For the second generation, designers have sought to not completely transform the silhouette of the model recognized by all.

Lifetime sales of Nintendo Switch, which is entering only its second holiday season, have reached more than 8.2 million units.

The sale runs November 25 to December 1.

It was also revealed launch week sales for the Pokemon: Let's Go games hit 1.5 million units combined. The Nintendo Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in U.S. history for those five days, even surpassing the Wii, and the system also had its best-selling week ever in the US.

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, gamers need to know - which console "won" the Thanksgiving weekend battle?
