Nintendo Switch consoles are super hard to find right now, but GameStop has a creative solution if you don’t mind bundling your purchases. The retailer is offering bundles with both Switch and Switch Lite consoles. Each bundle includes Animal Crossing: New Horizons (which, if you’re buying a Switch right now, you’ll probably want) as well as some other goodies.

Xbox One consoles are much easier to find, especially since the next generation of Xbox is due out this winter. Microsoft is discounting its current consoles by $100 right now, bringing the 4K-ready Xbox One X down to $299. Xbox owners should also check out Amazon’s deal on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: The retailer is throwing in an extra three months of the online/game subscription service when you buy a three-month code.

Finally, two site-wide sales are worth taking a look at this week. Ubisoft’s annual spring sale is ending on Wednesday, so this is your last chance to take advantage of up to 80% discounts on Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry PC games. And Mondo, Alamo Drafthouse’s collectibles retailer, is running a “Stay Safe and Save” sale. The company is offering 15% off and free shipping on any three items from the sale.
