Good news for anyone in the market for a new Xbox One controller: Amazon currently has the white and black new Xbox One controllers on sale for $39. That’s well below the normal price of $60 and a great deal for Xbox One owners.
The discounted units are Xbox’s new Bluetooth-enabled controllers that work with Xbox One, Xbox One S, PC, and tablets, so it’s worth a look for gamers. In fact, the controller even works with Samsung Gear VR, and can connect to PC without the use of a dongle. That makes the Xbox One Bluetooth controller a top pick for those who are looking to use a controller for gaming outside a console.
The controllers were launched back in August 2016 alongside the Xbox One S. The Bluetooth controllers feature texture grips, better wireless range than their predecessors, and a nice, sleek design.
For those considering picking up Project Scorpio later this year, it’s worth noting that these controllers will also work with the upcoming Xbox powerhouse console.
The controller deal on Amazon isn’t part of the Deal of the Day, so there’s no telling when the sudden sale might end. With that in mind, those considering the purchase should probably move on it quickly before it expires.
Xbox One gamers have another reason to celebrate today. Microsoft announced a new gaming subscriptions service, termed Xbox Game Pass, that will be releasing later this spring. Xbox Game Pass will open up over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 backward compatibility games for only $10 per month.
Ultimately, there are plenty of reasons for those in the market for a new controller to grab one of these Xbox One controllers while they’re available.
