Play fighting games and considering swapping a controller for a dedicated fight stick? Right now you can beat the upcoming sales rush with an excellent discount on what we consider an ideal entry-level fightstick that's usually in a firm mid-range price bracket.

The 8BitDo Arcade Stick for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC is that stick, and at present it's down to a record-low price of $89.99 (was $119.99), beating the previous best by around six bucks. What's more, both black and white variants are on sale if you're choosy about color options. There likely won't be a better deal than this for the fight stick ahead of this month's Amazon Prime Day.
