The springtime sales are coming good for gaming peripherals and deals and one of my absolute favorite Xbox and PC controllers is discounted right now. The Thrustmaster eSwap X Pro controller is down a near-record-low price of $134.99 at Amazon in the US (was $169.99) - it's the lowest price since for a good few months and since the holidays!

This is a superb saving of more than 20% on a premium PC controller, that also offers new ways to play games due to its modular design. I have a soft spot for it as it was the first controller I could use on an Xbox console - the modules allowed me to change it to a symmetrical layout and thus I finally had an Xbox controller that played nice with my hands. It's around three years since it first came out, but with a newer version also coming out recently in the form of the Thrustmaster eSwap X2, we're likely to enjoy price cuts on the eSwap X Pro while stock remains at retailers. This is such a price cut, and marks an ideal time to adopt the pro controller and take your gaming up a notch.

This is the lowest price on the controller since the holidays, and while it's not a lowest ever, it still represents excellent value for money on what is a top Xbox and PC controller. In addition to opening accessibility doors with its modular design, it's also a great pro controller with a bunch of features.

On top of the modularity, this is a premium Xbox and PC pro controller more broadly - and certainly still holds up in the face of its slightly newer brethren that;'s come out recently. The eSwap X Pro offers changeable triggers, remappable back buttons, super-satisfyingly clicky shoulder and face buttons, ultra-responsive sticks, and a robust design. It is wired, but the 9.8ft / 3m cable should be long enough for most setups.
