There are plenty of great Cyber Monday deals on Nintendo Switch consoles, games and accessories. If you jumped on one of these — or if you already own a Switch — then we've got an outstanding deal for you.

The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is on sale for $59 at Best Buy after a $10 discount. This might not sound like huge savings but the controller rarely goes on sale to begin with. Keep in mind, you won't see the savings until you've added the controller to your cart. This deal is also available on Amazon.com

The Pro Controller is a great addition to your Switch, giving you more comfort and control than the Joy-Con that comes with the console. It is a must-have if you play first-person shooters, sports games or anything that requires precision. In many ways, the Switch Pro Controller is similar to the Xbox or PlayStation controllers.
