The Popular 8BitDo Pro 2 Switch Controller Hits Lowest Price Ever

The 8BitDo Pro 2 is a well-rounded controller that's a great, affordable alternative to the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.


If you're searching for a frugal alternative to the expensive Switch Pro Controller, you'll want to take a look at the 8BitDo Pro 2. The controller is an easy recommendation at full price, but right now Amazon is discounting the popular gamepad to $40 (down from $50). That's the lowest-ever price for the pro-style controller, and since the deal applies to both the G Classic and Gray editions, it's easy to find a model that catches your eye.

While the 8BitDo Pro 2 is no stranger to discounts, it's never been this cheap before. Most deals only lower its price by a few bucks--but now that it's listed for $40, there's little reason to avoid it if you need a new gamepad.

Another great 8BitDo product, the Retro Mechanical Keyboard (Fami Edition), is also on sale right now for $80 (down from $100). The quirky keyboard supports both Bluetooth and 2.4Hz connections and comes with the unique Dual Super Buttons for setting macros. You'll also find the 8BitDo Arcade Stick for Xbox Series X listed for $75 (down from $120). We're not sure how long any of these limited-time deals will remain in stock, so be sure to cash in on the savings while you can.
