Amazon's $25 Xbox One Controller checks all the boxes at half the price of Microsoft's gamepad

Amazon has an Xbox One controller that’s about half the price of the official gamepad but is ideal for gaming on a budget.

Amazon continues to solidify its position as the jack-of-all-trades, now offering a growing range of accessories for Xbox One. Positioned under the no-frills “AmazonBasics” range, these accompaniments to your console promise a low-price tag without comprising on build quality.

After previously exploring the online retail giant’s line of charging accessories, we’re exploring Amazon’s take on the Xbox One controller itself. Promising comparable functionality to Microsoft’s official solution at half the price, it’s an attractive pickup for budget-conscious gamers. And while it may forgo luxuries of some higher-end controllers, it still nails the basics.
