One Of The Best Switch And PC Controllers Gets Big Discount For Prime Day

The 8BitDo Ultimate Bluetooth model is one of the best third-party controllers, and it comes with a charging dock.


Amazon has a bevy of great Nintendo Switch deals for Prime Day Round 2, and when it comes to controllers, the 8BitDo Ultimate Bluetooth is arguably the best on offer. This highly customizable third-party controller has a feature set normally only found on controllers twice its price. It's already a great value at its retail price of $70, but right now you can get a 20% discount, dropping the price to just $56. Both the black and white models are on sale for this price, though you have to click the coupon box below the price (or in your cart) to get the discount.

If you only need the controller for PC, you can snag the 2.4GHz-only model for even less:

Toss in an ergonomic design, motion controls, and Hall Effect joysticks (that prevent stick drift), and there's a whole lot of value packed into this affordable controller. It's worth noting that it doesn't have NFC support for Amiibo, and the vibration, though customizable, isn't Nintendo's HD Rumble tech.

Since this is the lowest price ever for the 8BitDo Ultimate Bluetooth Controller, the deal is unlikely to stick around for very long. So if you’re in the market for a new gamepad, you should head over to Amazon and cash in on the deal as soon as possible.
