Snag One Of The Best Xbox Controllers For Only $25

The 8BitDo Ultimate is currently on sale for only $25.49 at Amazon.


If you're looking for a new Xbox or PC controller, one of the best options is currently on sale for $25.49 at Amazon. The 8BitDo Ultimate features remappable back buttons and other customization features that give it a lot of versatility, especially at this price. And if you like the design but want a wireless model for PC and Switch, the 8BitDo Ultimate Bluetooth Controller with charging dock is currently on sale for a great price, too: The black model is 15 percent off, while the white edition is 10 percent off.

The only downside here is that the 8BitDo Ultimate is a wired controller for Xbox and PC, whereas the Switch version has Bluetooth wireless support. There's also a PC-specific version with 2.4GHz wireless for $50.

The Xbox version of the Ultimate is still a fantastic controller, though. Besides being a comfortable fit for your hands with its shape and featuring quality components, the big deal here is the customization on offer. You can fine-tune your inputs, adjust your analog stick sensitivity, and much more using 8BitDo's software, and the controller can store up to three profiles that you can switch between on the fly.

If you want a setup that favors quick trigger pulls when you play Call of Duty, a profile that heightens analog stick sensitivity when you play Forza Horizon, and a custom arrangement for fighting games, you'll be easily covered.

If you also own a PS5, you should definitely consider the current PlayStation Back to School deal that drops the price of the DualSense controller to only $49.
