Welcome to CHEAP, our series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!

Games controllers are rarely cheap. Ditto when they come with added accessories  and that’s why this deal is such an attractive bargain. Right now, Amazon is flogging an Xbox One controller for just £39.99 on their UK site. Plus, it comes bundled with a USB dongle for the PC purists among us.

I don’t really need to sell this much. If you’ve got an Xbox, you know what the controller is like.

That said, I will say this is an excellent deal, and one worth considering if you’re in the market. According to CamelCamelCamel, this is the cheapest this controller has ever been. Typically, this Xbox One controller retails for around £50. At its peak it sold for an eye-watering £65.

Of course, I wouldn’t be surprised to see similar deals emerge in the coming months. As we know, Microsoft will soon unleash the successor to the venerable Xbox One. As die-hard gamers save their pennies for a long awaited upgrade, you can expect the price of peripherals and games for current-generation consoles to deflate substantially.
