Nintendo Labo just launched yesterday, so you’ll be hard pressed to find a deal on the DIY kits for a while. We’re keeping an eye out, but if you’re looking for more traditional Switch accessories there are still plenty of options this weekend. The Pro Controller is still $10 off at most retailers ($59), and Joy-Cons are $15 off at Amazon ($65.67). Walmart is offering bundles on both types of controllers that comes with a Switch traveling case.

Green Man Gaming is running a spring sale through the end of the month with hundreds of PC games like Cuphead, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite and Rocket League up to 75 percent off. Throughout the sale there will be 24-hour flash deals — today’s include 80 percent off Tropico 5 (on sale for $8) and 50 percent off Enter the Gungeon (on sale for $6.75). VIP members who register for a free Green Man Gaming account can get an additional 20 percent off sale titles as well as a daily free “mystery game”.

Some other notable deals on games this week: Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 is at the lowest price it’s ever been at Amazon ($29.99). Green Man Gaming is offering 10 percent off the excellent, new God of War, which launched yesterday. So far that’s the only sale we’ve seen on God of War. Finally, Xbox Live Gold members can play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for free this weekend. Any achievements and in-game purchases carry over if you decide to buy PUBG after the free weekend.
