The PlayStation and the DualShock controller have been best buds for most of the PlayStation brand's lifespan. Sony has changed little since the introduction of the dual analog design in 1997, instead pushing the iconic controller closer to perfection with each console generation.
Over 40 million PlayStation 4 consoles have been sold so far, and most of them only came with one DualShock 4 controller. If you want to play local multiplayer games, you're going to need a second, third or even fourth pad. Having a spare to keep charged when the battery drains on another is super handy too.
Don't bother looking on the high street for controller deals - seriously those prices are insane. Online is where the action's at and we've tracked down all cheap PS4 controller deals. We've picked out the best deals for the various different colors too for US and UK readers.
Cheapest PS4 controller deals by color:
We've hand picked out a few more tempting deals for the various color variations below too. Prices correct at time of writing, naturally.
Gray/Blue: This looks like the same color controller as the one in the Uncharted 4 Special Edition console bundle. This will be your best bet then if you already own a PS4. This has shot up in price in recent weeks and yopu can save money by opting for a different colour. If you've gotta have it though, Zavvi is the cheapest today at $61.
Blue: One of the best looking DualShock 4 colors out there in this writer's humble opinion. Grab your Wave Blue DualShock 4 for $45 from Amazon.
Red: This one took its sweet time to get to the US of A, but it's worth the wait once you get it into your hands. Grab your Magma Red DualShock 4 for $49 from Amazon.
White: Going for a red, white and blue trilogy? You'll be needing the Glacier White DualShock 4 for $45 from Amazon then.
Camo: This model is a bit of a rare find at most retailers so expect higher prices than most models. Today's best price for the Urban Camo DualShock 4 is $48.69 at Amazon.
Black: The classic original and often the cheapest DualShock 4 option. Black DualShock £41.85 at ShopTo.
Silver: These rarer controllers are usually floating around the £50 mark (gross), so it's a delight to see ShopTo selling the Silver DualShock at £39.85.
Gold: If you want this absolutely not-beige PS4 controller you're going to have to stump up a bulk of extra cash, GameSeek is the cheapest at £57.84. We'd wait for a better price to be honest as we've seen it for a tenner less.
White: ShopTo is the cheapest around this week but they have been a fiver cheaper than this in recent weeks. Grab a Glacier White DualShock 4 for £41.85.
Grey/Blue: This looks like the same colour controller as the one in the Uncharted 4 Special Edition console bundle. This will be your best bet then if you already own a PS4. Zavvi is currently the cheapest, and we're seeing the price rise steeply elsehwere. Grey/Blue controller at £44.99.
Blue: While we prefer the days we saw these for under £40, the lean summer months have driven prices up and most retailers are charging £45 or more. Here's the cheapest this week: ShopTo at £39.85.
Red: ShopTo is the cheapest today as rival outlets are still trying to mugg you off with £45 deals. Get your Magma Red DualShock 4 controller for £39.85.
