DualShock 4 deals are perfect for picking up a cheap PS4 controller. Whether you're grabbing an extra gamepad for more multiplayer options or picking up a controller to use with compatible PS4 titles on PS5, regular sales mean there are plenty of chances to save throughout the year.
Since the PS5 launched, we haven't seen PS4 controller prices drop too much. That's likely due to the fact that they can still be used with certain games on the new system and because there have been so many difficulties securing PS5 restocks since release.
It's worth noting, however, that these DualShock 4 deals aren't quite beating the DualSense controller price, which means if you are playing on PS5 you might as well go for the upgraded experience on the next-generation device. Chances are you'll find a discount in this year's Black Friday deals.
