The annual Gamescom conference took place in Cologne, Germany this week, with game developers showing off flashy new footage for upcoming titles. In celebration of the festival, several retailers are offering discounts on games and hardware.

Alienware PCs and accessories are 10 percent off at Dell with code LCS10OFF, including the new Aurora desktop. Dell is also taking $50 off the new G5 gaming laptop, bringing it down to $829.99. Origin and Ubisoft are also running Gamescom deals of their own, with up to 80 percent off PC games and a free download of For Honor, respectively.

On Friday, Best Buy brought back its popular Nintendo Switch deal, which bundles a Switch console and game for $329.98. That’s essentially getting a first-party Switch game for half off. Choose from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. (And make sure you’re getting the new Switch with extended battery life — it’s one of the listings that says “image unavailable” on the deal landing page.)

Finally, Amazon is discounting several of its Fire TV devices in a new back to school sale. Amazon’s Fire TV Stick streaming devices are $10 off, including the 4K model. And two 4K TVs with built-in Fire TV are $100 and come with a free Echo Dot. (The Echo Dot isn’t added automatically, so make sure you put one in your cart before checkout.)
