Enjoy wireless gameplay w/ the SteelSeries Stratus XL Bluetooth Controller: $29 (Reg. $45+)


Amazon offers the SteelSeries Stratus XL Bluetooth Wireless Gaming Controller for $28.95 shipped. Regularly $60 at Best Buy, it’s on sale for $53 there right now. Amazon normally has it listed around $45 and this is a new all-time low that we’ve tracked. SteelSeries is a very well-known name in the gaming industry, and this controller is a great alternative to Microsoft’s own Xbox One option when looking for a more PlayStation-like experience. This controller also works with most VR headsets, including Vive, Oculus, and Gear VR. Rated 4+ stars from nearly 65% of Amazon customers.

Though possible to use a PlayStation controller with Windows, there are workarounds and hacks needed to make it work properly. This is an easy way to get a plug-and-play (or pair-and-play since it’s Bluetooth) experience on multiple platforms.

If you don’t mind the wired experience, this #1 best-seller at Amazon is just $20 Prime shipped and also sports the PS4-styling as SteelSeries above. You’ll lose out on being able to relax and sit back due to its wire, and also on SteelSeries’ quality, but it’s a great budget alternative.

SteelSeries Stratus XL Wireless Controller features:

  • Home and Back buttons for seamless gaming on Android 3.1+ devices
  • 40+ hours of gameplay
  • Compatible with Windows 7 and up, as well as Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, Oculus, and for use with thousands of controller-enabled games
  • Works great with Steam Big Picture mode for an immersive gaming experience
  • Leverages Microsoft’s XInput and DirectInput for use on a variety of platforms
  • Bluetooth dongle adapter purchased separately.
