8Bitdo’s Pro 2 Wired Switch, Android, Windows Controller now back down to $28 for limited time

The official 8Bitdo Amazon storefront is now offering its Pro 2 Wired Controller for $27.99 shipped in both the grey and G Classic colorways. Regularly $35, this model only really ever goes on sale, like most 8Bitdo gear, during these Amazon Lightning offers. That means you only have another 11 hours or until it sells out before it jumps back up to the regular price. Now 20% off, this model is compatible with Nintendo Switch, Windows, Android, and Raspberry Pi with a pair of thumbsticks, a D-pad, the usual four face buttons, back paddles, and shoulder triggers. It also works alongside the 8Bitdo customization software so you can re-map the buttons, modify the vibration, and adjust the trigger sensitivity, among other things. More details below.
