Many gaming consoles are hard to get a hold of these days. The Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite are nearly impossible to find, and PS4 Pro consoles are pretty hit or miss as well. But if you’re in the mood for something a little more retro, you’re in luck. The excellent Sega Genesis Mini is still in stock at Best Buy, and it’s on sale for its Black Friday price. (Amazon is also offering the discount, but it won’t have consoles in stock until June.)

Social distancing has made game nights go digital, and some of the easiest titles to play over Zoom are Jackbox Party Pack games. Only one person needs to own the game — everyone else can join on their phones. Right now, the digital PC games marketplace Green Man Gaming is offering discounts on all six Jackbox Party Packs, from the original to the latest entry on the franchise, Jackbox Party Pack 6.

Finally, Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans can show off their love of the island lifestyle with a sale on Animal Crossing shirts at Hot Topic. A bunch of shirts are on sale for 30% off today, including button-downs inspired by Tom Nook’s resort wear.
