Yesterday was Star Wars Day (May the 4th, get it?), which has become an international holiday with multiple Twitter hashtags and, of course, plenty of deals. Some fans of the Dark Side are keeping the celebration going all weekend, with #RevengeoftheFifth and/or #RevengeoftheSixth. (No one can seem to agree on which is a better pun.) No matter which hashtag you prefer, you can still take advantage of some of the May 4 sales we rounded up yesterday — many of them are running all weekend.

Valve announced this week that Steam is now supporting Switch Pro Controllers for those who have opted into the Steam Client Beta. The Pro Controller is one of the best gamepads out there, if also one of the most expensive. It’s still on sale at Amazon for $59, $10.99 less than the usual $69.99. For those who prefer playing with the Joy-Cons, the Hyperkin charging grip with an adorable puppy face decal is on sale as well for $13.85 (usually $19.99).

Commerce Team Picks

  • ThinkGeek has a line of understated Star Wars blazers that are perfect if you want to cosplay a professional Darth Vader or just want to shout out your favorite space friends at work. They just added Chewbacca and Boba Fett blazers just in time for Star Wars Day.
  • As of this writing, Amazon had the giant 7,541-piece Lego Millennium Falcon Kit back in stock, exclusively for Amazon Prime members. It costs a whopping $799.99 and usually sells out pretty quickly.
