Cheap Xbox controller deals are back after the recent stock shortage. Today’s savings might not be as large as we saw over Black Friday, but there are small discounts available on some colors. We’ve gathered up exactly where to buy a new gamepad for the best price today that will work on your Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One and PC.
Consoles only ship with one Xbox controller these days, which can be frustrating if you like to have a spare charged up, keep one ready for multiplayer use, or pair one with a PC in a different room. That often means a second controller is one of the first accessories bought after a new console, but don’t let the high price put you off.
And if you want something to play with your new controller, why not browse all the latest Xbox game deals or see what Xbox Game Pass deals are available today for Microsoft’s gaming subscription service?
Xbox Wireless Controller deals
You can usually shave off a few dollars or pounds of an Xbox controller if you know where to look – and we’ve picked out all of today’s offers below so you have the best chance of finding one for less. All major color options are featured too, so you can pick the one that suits your style for your Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One or PC.
Xbox Elite Wireless controller deals
The original Xbox Elite Wireless controller has now been discontinued, with the Series 2 taking up its place on the shelves. You pay a considerable premium to play with the turbo-charged gamepad here, but this controller comes with more customization options, adjustable trigger settings and a built-in wireless charging battery.
How to find a cheap Xbox controller
Cheap Xbox controllers can be difficult to find outside of major sales events. However, we do see sales pop up throughout the year that can save you some serious cash on a spare gamepad. Discounts can be direct from Microsoft or part of a wider sale at the likes of Best Buy, Walmart or Amazon – and our comparison charts above will point you towards the cheapest Xbox controller prices available right now.
If you want to take a look for yourself, you can find all the best retailers for cheap Xbox controller deals in either the US or UK just below.
Cheap Xbox controller alternatives
If you don’t want to spend the $40-$50 / £40 – £50 on an official Xbox controller, you can find cheaper third party options on the market. You’re not getting the full sensitivity of the newer gamepads here, and you may be losing a little of that super fast connection in the Core models as well, but if you just need a way to push some buttons we’d recommend checking out PowerA and PDP’s options as well.
However, if you’re going for something a little more technical, the Razer Wolverine controller offers greater customization than the standard Xbox controller for a slightly higher price as well.
