Black Friday 2023 is on Nov. 24, 2023 but we’re already seeing some fiery deals on the top products from laptops to phones. If you're a gamer, you can snag a new controller for cheap while you're at it.
Especially if yours is getting a little worn down. Or maybe you want to add a player-two to your experience? Regardless, my favorite PC gaming controller is on sale for Black Friday.
Of course, it's none other than the PS5 DualSense, available for $49 at Amazon.

Reviews: The DualSense controller is unlike any you have used. Feel tantalizing vibrations against your fingertips as you dodge through dark fantastical environments in Demon's Souls. Or put just enough pressure on each trigger to activate different abilities in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. This is the peak of modern gaming.
Buy it if: You love new, experimental technology. You own a PS5 or a PC with PS5 games on it. You like legacy PlayStation controllers. You like a good deal -- this is the cheapest modern controller deal you'll find right now. You like rechargeable batteries.
Don't Buy it if: You don't play with vibration and don't care about adaptive triggers. You don't own a PS5 or any PS5 games on your PC. You dislike legacy PlayStation controllers. You like Xbox controllers. You don't use any controllers (Why are you here?).
