PC controllers price analysis: Amazon Australia vs Australian retail

Not a fan of the mouse and keyboard? Check out these deals on the most popular PC controllers

Not so long ago, the mouse and keyboard was the weapon of choice for PC gamers the world over. With modern consoles now just PCs themselves wrapped in a custom shell, though, the worlds of PC and console gaming are closer than they’ve ever been. Multi-platform releases are the norm, and this has led to the humble mouse and keyboard having to make room for the more accessible gamepad.

While the Xbox 360 controller has served as many PC gamers’ preferred controller for years now, there are plenty of other options to consider. We’ve rounded up the most popular wired and wireless PC controllers below, plus we’ve compared the cheapest prices for each from some of the biggest tech retailers in Australia to ensure you get the best deal possible.

Prices were last checked between 20 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
