Video: Switch Joy-Cons In Falling Prices: Thanks To Black Friday Finally At A Reasonable Price
Update, November 29, 2019: Nintendo hardware remains largely stable on Black Friday. While most retailers continue to sell the Joy-Cons for 70 euros and up, there is at least a small saving on Amazon. There are currently all available color variants for 59.99 euros in the "Sale".

Switch Joy-Cons: Price drop of the removable controller
At the start of Nintendo's hybrid console, an additional pair of Joy-Cons went over the counter for the suggested retail price of 79.99 euros in Europe. However, the typical street price was around EUR 75 per Joy-Con set. Less than half a year later, two Joy-Cons were often available for just under 70 euros. This price remained stable for a long time until the controllers made another small jump down to 65 euros in May 2019. Currently, you can often get a Joy-Con set for just 65-70 euros.
The different color variants differ only slightly in price. Regardless of whether you want the controllers in gray, yellow, red / blue, green / pink, purple / orange or blue / yellow - the different sets often only separate 1-2 euros. With large providers such as Amazon or Saturn, you currently pay for a set around 70 euros. You can find the cheapest price on price comparison sites such as Idealo, billiger.de or Geizhals.
For certain promotions or on special sales "holidays" such as Black Friday, you can now get the Joy-Cons for 55 euros - but you cannot be picky about the color. If you want the absolute best price, you should wait for such offer days.

Joy-Cons: Who is it worth buying?
If you are looking for a controller for yourself or for multiplayer games that you can use for TV mode, you should look at the "Switch Pro Controller". The normal switch comes with two Joy-Cons as standard, with which you can already play titles like "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", "Super Mario Party" and more in multiplayer mode. If you want to play with four people on the console with original hardware as cheap as possible, you can of course buy a second set of Joy-Cons.
Switch-Lite owners can also buy Joy-Cons, as the buttons and sticks are firmly attached to the handheld. So if you want to play games in the local multiplayer with the Lite or also want to play the titles that absolutely need the additional features of Joy-Cons, you need a set of controllers and a way to charge them.
Are you the ultimate Nintendo fan boy?
Nintendo is one of the most important and traditional gaming companies in the world. Even non-gamers know Super Mario. But what do you know as a real gamer about the Japanese studio? Can you really say you are a Nintendo fan boy?
