Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. With today’s list, we’re highlighting a deal on Microsoft’s Xbox One Wireless Controller, which is down to $40 at Walmart and Amazon. That’s $20 off its standard going rate.
This is a good price for anyone in need of a spare controller for their Xbox One, but it also has its uses for those who game on the PC. While Xbox’s controller may be blasphemous to the most dedicated PC gamers, some people do prefer to use a gamepad over the tried-and-true mouse and keyboard. The Xbox One controller has the advantage of being easy to set up on Windows, since they’re both made by the same company. That could make it a better buy than Sony’s DualShock 4 controller for those who play PC games outside of Valve’s Steam client. (It does work with Steam just fine, though.) It can connect to a PC via Bluetooth or a microUSB cable.
The big difference between the Xbox One controller and the DS4 is that the former requires a pair of AA batteries for power. The upside is that the Xbox One pad tends to last longer per charge than the DualShock 4 and its built-in battery, but if you don’t have a dedicated battery charger, it can be a pain. Nevertheless, if you prefer the feel of the Xbox One controller and its asymmetrical joysticks, this is a solid deal.
If you don’t need a new gamepad, we also have deals on Google’s Chromecast Audio, , various Nintendo Switch games, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.
