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.
