So, the Nintendo Switch has officially outpaced the Wii U in lifetime sales — in just one year. With tentpole blockbusters like Super Mario Odyssey and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and acclaimed indies like Golf Story and The Sexy Brutale in its roster, it really is a must-own console. Just this week, the Switch’s offerings got a whole lot better. Valentine’s Day is on the horizon and if you’re looking for a present for someone who loves gaming, eBay is offering a cheap way to get some of the console’s essentials. You can get a Nintendo Switch with Super Mario Odyssey and a Pro Controller at eBay for $399 right now.

The Switch isn’t the only console upping its game. Xbox One owners now have the opportunity to get Xbox exclusives the day they’re available with Game Pass. GameStop is marking down some great console deals starting at $299.99, but act fast, because these only lasts through 11:59PM EST on Feb. 3.

Rounding out the best deals of the week, Comixology is offering Polygon readers an exclusive deal, knocking $5 off of any purchase of $20 or more with the promo code POLYGON5 until Feb. 3 at 11:59PM EST.

Commerce Team Picks

  • I visited my childhood home a few weeks ago and dusted off an old copy of Pokémon Yellow. Not having a Game Boy Color to plug it into was a profound disappointment, so I got my hands on a Hyperkin SmartBoy and haven’t been able to put it down.
  • Valentine’s day is coming up and flowers are nice, but this year, mix it up a little. Get your nerdy partner something more personal. Grab them a different kind of bouquet. ThinkGeek’s plush bouquets are the perfect thing for the Star Wars lover in your life, for example.
  • Shadow of the Colossus is back. And it’s great. You can get a print the game’s hero facing down a colossus at Etsy right now. That same store has a few more great options from the game, but this is the best one.
