As we bid farewell to Prime Day 2023, we’re also saying goodbye to Video Game Fashion Week, Polygon’s annual tradition of celebrating all the weird and wonderful ways gaming collides with magic. Fortunately, there are always good deals here at Polygon, and while you may not be able to save on Sailor Moon Jimmy Choos or Team Rocket streetwear, we might just have Space Navy bomber jacket with your name on it.
We’ve included some of our favorite deals this week from the gaming and entertainment world, along with some of the best-selling products that appeared on Polygon this week.
The best gaming deals this week
It’s normally $349.99, but you can currently pick up the Japanese-style Nintendo Switch OLED in Woot for just $289.99, less than the vanilla Switch’s price. The OLED model is similar to its standard counterpart, but features many improvements, including a larger and brighter screen, better sound, and a more robust kickstand.
The only real catch here is that the box and documentation are written in Japanese. However, once you set up the console and select English as the primary language, it will work just like any other switch you can buy in North America.
Even with the advent of more powerful games like the Steam Deck and the Asus ROG Ally, the Switch is still the only (official) place to experience first-party Nintendo titles like The Legend of Zelda: Kingdom’s TearsAnd Dread MetroidAnd Mario + Rabbids sparks of hope.
