Yes it’s Saturday, but there are still Black Friday Xbox controller deals available. We’re still finding discounts on the some of the best Xbox controllers, including the universal favorite Elite Series 2, as well as on limited-edition colorways of the official Xbox Series X controller, and the usual third-party gamepads from popular manufacturers like Razer and Thrustmaster. 

If it feels like there’s a lot of choice, it’s because 2021 is a unique year – the Xbox Series X has been out for a year, and with Microsoft offering forwards and backwards compatibility, many of the best Xbox One game pads will work on the new console, and vice versa. So, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to Black Friday Xbox controller deals. 

For example, you can get the official wireless Xbox Series X controller in the incredible Electric Volt colorway for $10 off at Walmart (opens in new tab), or nab the Razer Wolverine for less than $100 at Best Buy (opens in new tab), since it was made for Xbox One (but it will work on Series X). 

If you’re still on the market for a new console, we’ve created a guide on how to buy an Xbox Series X on Black Friday. And we’re not just collecting Xbox controller deals, but we’re watching the biggest Black Friday Xbox Series X deals, Black Friday gaming headset deals, Black Friday gaming chair deals, and Black Friday Xbox Series X TV deals

Black Friday Xbox Controller Deals – FAQs

Black Friday Xbox controller deals: what to expect

Thrustmaster eSwap X Pro

(Image credit: Future)

But let’s start from the top. The Elite Series 2 controller is always the one to look out for during sales events. Its list price is still $180 so anything below that is still technically a deal – though its recent price has generally seen it available for around the $160 mark in the past couple of months. It did receive a tiny price drop of $15 or so last Black Friday, but it could be prime for a sub-$150, lowest-ever price this year. After all, we can’t be too far off a Series 3…

The day after Cyber Monday last year is still the record low for the regular Series X controller (in black) when it was briefly down to $39. We think that this is probably about as low as it’ll go again this year – it still not being that old at all, of course – but that’d still be a great price.

Among the third-party controllers is where it could get more interesting. One of our top picks, the Thrustmaster eSwap X Pro controller – with its modular, interchangeable design and plethora of customisation options – could definitely see a lowest ever price. A $60 controller, this last saw a lowest ever price of $20 for Amazon Prime Day, which is was a fantastic deal. We’d be very surprised if it went down any lower, but what could happen is that the controller gets cuts, along with the colour or LED packs that offer variety to its design, so you could save a whole bunch on a whole package.

Turtle Beach Recon Controller

Razer’s Wolverine line of Xbox controllers are also definite strong contenders for price cuts this year. The gaming hardware behemoth always get’s involved with the Black Friday Xbox controller deals and we’d expect to see even the newest Wolverine V2 on offer. Given that controller and all its brethren are some of the best Razer controllers available from the brand, we’d keep an eye on all of these. The Razer Wolverine Ultimate, for example, despite being the older model, always sees deep cuts from its $160 list price, and has already been down to $110 once this year. The winter sales period is an easy chance to match or better this.

Elsewhere, the Turtle Beach Recon controller’s already decent price of $50 could mean it’s not going to see a deep cut, though a few dollars off would still represent a decent percentage off if it happens. It’s a similar case with Nacon’s (RIG’s) Pro Compact controller from this year too. Nonetheless, these represent the variety and spread of what’s likely to be available.

But, as we’ve said before, these are just a few big fish in a large pond of options. Even the most budget of entries will get price cuts if you’re looking for a quick hit or easy solution, while those more premium ones will be mighty tempting of course.
