It’s NFL Draft season, and Microsoft is celebrating by offering a free digital copy of Madden NFL 18 with any Xbox One purchase from the Microsoft Store and other licensed retailers. The redemption arc in Madden’s new story mode is worth the sticker price alone. If you’ve been thinking of picking up a new Xbox, this might be a good time to take the plunge. For those who don’t care about sports games but still want a good Xbox deal, you can get $20 off another Xbox One enhanced game like Monster Hunter: World or Assassins Creed Origins with an Xbox purchase at Amazon.

There are also some notable deals on Xbox, PS4 and Switch games this week. Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom on PS4 is at the lowest price its been since its launch last month. Get it at Amazon for $49.99 (usually $59.99). Far Cry 5 is at that same price of $49.99 on Xbox and PS4. Super Mario Odyssey on Switch is back down to $48.66 at Amazon, just 16 cents above its all time lowest price.

Commerce Team Picks

  • The fact that Nintendo has me feeling FOMO over a piece of cardboard is pretty dang impressive. As more people get their hands on Labo, videos of incredibly good keyboard covers are popping up all over the internet. If you’re interested in contributing to the wonderful, weird new canon of cardboard keyboard songs, you can pick up the Variety Kit at Amazon or Walmart for $69.99.
  • I stream co-op adventure games on Twitch pretty regularly, so when I heard about The Swords of Ditto I was immediately down. It’s a fun little dungeon crawler with cartoon-y visuals that Jeff Ramos called in his review, “the adorable antithesis to the average dungeon crawler.” It’s out now for PS4 and PC. It’s priced at $19.99, but PC users can get it for $15.59 at Green Man Gaming with code GMG22.
