Big gaming deals are mostly over now that the holidays have died down, but there are still some savings to be found. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers are all discounted right now by between $13 and $20. If you got a gaming console over the holidays or just play a lot of local multiplayer games, now’s a good time to grab a second (or third or fourth) controller.
Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons
One of the most innovative things about the Nintendo Switch is the Joy-Con gamepad that can be separated into two smaller controllers. However, the single Joy-Con isn’t exactly comfortable to hold for long periods of time. Plus, you’ll want to have some extra controllers lying around for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments, which can fit up to eight players.
A pair of Neon Blue/Neon Red Joy-Cons is on sale at Amazon for $66.77 (usually $79.99).
PlayStation DualShock 4 Controller
PlayStation controllers come in a wide array of colors, from Berry Blue and Sunset Orange to Crystal Clear and Blue Camouflage. The most popular limited-edition colors hardly ever go on sale (and are often priced way up by resellers), but if you’re just looking for a standard black controller, Amazon is currently taking $15 off the $60 price tag.
Xbox One Controller
Microsoft’s Bluetooth controller comes in even more colors and patterns than the DualShock 4, including special editions tied to specific games. Right now Microsoft is offering $10 off all wireless controllers at its digital storefront (except the souped-up Elite Controller). Amazon is taking an additional $10 off, bringing the standard black controller down to $39.98, though Microsoft has more colors available than Amazon does.
