Xbox Series X and Xbox One controller deals
While we’re not seeing as steep of discounts as we sometimes do on Microsoft’s official wireless controller for Xbox Series X and Xbox One, you can save $10 to $15 on a bunch of different color schemes. And if you’re in the market for something more premium, the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller is discounted to $140 at the Microsoft Store.
PlayStation controller deals
Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any discounts on the PS5’s DualSense controller. As of now, there are three different colors to choose from: white, Midnight Black, and Cosmic Red.
Nintendo Switch controller deals
You have a lot of different controller options to choose from for the Nintendo Switch. While the official Joy-Con controllers are great for handheld mode, it’s definitely more comfortable to use a traditional gamepad when gaming on the TV. From the official Switch Pro controller to great third-party options from companies like Hori and PowerA, there’s plenty to choose from.
Mobile controller deals
Mobile gaming is more popular than ever and with cloud gaming services like Xbox Cloud Gaming, Stadia, and Luna (among others), having a dedicated gamepad to play games on your phone can come in handy. While you can use PlayStation or Xbox controller with your phone, you may want to opt for a gamepad that turns your phone into a Switch-like device. The Razer Kishi, our pick for the best phone controller for iOS and Android, is on sale for a really low price right now.
