8BitDo's Great Arcade Stick Is Discounted Just In Time For Mortal Kombat 1

This premium arcade stick includes responsive face buttons, a durable joystick, and is highly customizable.


While the standard Xbox controller is great for most games, anyone dedicated to fighting games will get a lot of mileage out of a good fight stick. If you’re plugging away at Street Fighter 6 or are about to dive into Mortal Kombat 1, now might be a great time to invest in the 8BitDo Arcade Stick. Not only is it one of the best budget arcade sticks of 2023 for Xbox and PC, but it's currently matching its lowest price yet at Amazon.

On the faceplate you’ll find large, arcade-style buttons that make it easy to input complex combos, along with a premium joystick that’ll stand up to even the most intense matches. At the top left corner of the unit is a slew of other buttons, including a Share button and Home button--making it easy to capture footage of your latest match or quickly navigate menus.

While this 10% discount isn’t much, 8BitDo's Arcade Sticks, including the Switch/PC version, are almost never discounted. And if you’re looking for a high-quality companion for Street Fighter 6 or Mortal Kombat 1, it’s hard to do better than this.

Amazon doesn’t list an end date for the deal, so we’d recommend moving fast if you want to snag one at this low price. Depending on your location, you could have it in your hands by tomorrow morning (thanks to Prime Overnight shipping).

If you need Street Fighter 6, you can get a Steam key for $49.68 at Fanatical. Xbox players can grab the game for $49.49 at Amazon. Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat 1 releases September 19, though you can get five days early access by purchasing the Premium edition. Check out our Mortal Kombat 1 preorder guide for more details, and if you're gaming on PC, you can take advantage of a great deal on Mortal Kombat 1 Steam keys.
