While the standard Xbox controller is great for most games, anyone dedicated to fighting games will get a lot of mileage out of a good fight stick. If you’re plugging away at Street Fighter 6–or looking forward to the launch of Mortal Kombat 1 or Tekken 8–now might be a great time to invest in the 8BitDo Arcade Stick. Not only is it one of the best budget arcade sticks of 2023 for Xbox and PC, but it’s currently seeing its first-ever discount.
On the faceplate you’ll find large, arcade-style buttons that make it easy to input complex combos, along with a premium joystick that’ll stand up to even the most intense matches. At the top left corner of the unit is a slew of other buttons, including a Share button and Home button–making it easy to capture footage of your latest match or quickly navigate menus.
While this 10% discount isn’t much, 8BitDo’s Arcade Sticks, including the Switch/PC version, are almost never discounted. And if you’re looking for a high-quality companion for Street Fighter 6, it’s hard to do better than this.
Amazon doesn’t list an end date for the deal, so we’d recommend moving fast if you want to snag one at this low price. Depending on your location, you could have it in your hands by tomorrow morning (thanks to Prime Overnight shipping).
If you need Street Fighter 6, you can get a Steam key for $49.68 at Fanatical. Xbox players can grab the game for $50 at Amazon. Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat 1 release September 19, and you can preorder multiple editions now.
