On the hunt for great Black Friday PS5 controller deals? You're not alone. While the PlayStation 5 console comes bundled with a DualSense controller as standard, you may be looking to upgrade on Sony's original offering or simply to add more gamepads to your collection for when friends come around.

Fortunately, Black Friday PS5 controller deals have already started to drop. So whether you're looking to pick up another official DualSense controller or to pick up a customizable third-party gamepad, there's likely to be something in the current deals for you.

Right now, the DualSense is at its lowest price yet in both the UK and US, while third-party manufacturer Scuf is offering 20% off all its custom PS5 controllers. There's also a decent discount on one of our favorite premium alternatives. (Not in the US or UK? Scroll down for deals in your region).

Scuf Reflex Pro | Customized: 20% off with code CYBER20
Scuf is currently offering 20% off all its custom controllers right now, including the Scuf Reflex Pro which works with PS5 and PC. Prices start at $219.99, so this is a pricier option than the DualSense but 20% off certainly helps take the sting out (a bit).

Supported by the PS5 and the PS4, the Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller is a premium controller option that's not quite as pricey as the Scuf. It's high quality and truly ergonomic but doesn't boast the haptic feedback of the DualSense.

DualSense Midnight Black: Was £60 now £44.99 at Currys

PlayStation DualSense Starlight Blue: Was £65 £44.99 at Currys
Save £20 - Although this is roughly £5 more expensive than the historic lowest rate for the Starlight Blue DualSense, we still think this is a great price on the recently released re-colour.

Scuf Reflex Pro | Customized: 20% off with code CYBER20

Scuf Reflex Pro | Customized: 20% off with code CYBER20
Scuf is currently offering 20% off all its custom controllers right now, including the Scuf Reflex Pro which works with PS5 and PC. Prices start at £219.99, so this is a pricier option than the DualSense but 20% off certainly helps take the sting out (a bit). 

Unfortunately, DualSense alternatives tend to be premium and (most importantly) expensive PS5 gamepads. The DualSense remains our favorite PS5 controller but if you're not fussed about the standard controller's haptic feedback and built-in mic features, and don't mind spending a bit extra for customization, then it's worth considering some of the alternatives above. 

We expect there will be further discounts on PS5 controllers as we get closer to Black Friday so keep an eye on our Black Friday PS5 deals page for the latest price cuts. And make sure to check out our Black Friday gaming deals liveblog for the biggest and best discounts as they happen.
