Mario Day, the holiday dedicated to Nintendo’s favorite son, has come and gone. But the discounts on Switch games and accessories featuring Mario are running through Friday, March 13, so there’s still time to take advantage of those deals. And if you’re in the market for a Nintendo Switch headset, our favorite model, the HyperX Cloud Mix, is on sale for $129.99.

This week we also saw the return of the Black Friday PlayStation 4 Pro sale that Woot revived last month. The deals site is bringing back the discount this week, offering $100 off the 4K-ready console. We expect this deal to continue popping up as Sony gets ready to drop its next-generation console.

Finally, Amazon is offering some nice discounts on ebooks and Blu-rays. Pre-orders for upcoming limited edition Studio Ghibli SteelBooks, Ponyo and Howl’s Moving Castle, are already on sale. And the “Enhanced Digital Edition” ebook of the popular horror novel My Best Friend’s Exorcism is down to $1.99 for the rest of the month.

Like The Exorcist meets Degrassi, Grady Hendrix’s horror novel My Best Friend’s Exorcism is creepy and campy in equal measure. A film adaptation of the 80s-inspired story is currently in production, but right now the “Enhanced Digital Edition” ebook is on sale for $1.99.
