Between Street Fighter 6, Mortal Kombat 1, and the upcoming release of Tekken 8, now is a great time to pick up a fight stick and get the most out of this wealth of fighting games. There’s no shortage of fight sticks around, but if you’re looking for a big early Black Friday 2023 discount on a premium product, check out Amazon’s stellar deal on the PDP Victrix Pro FS. Normally $400, you can grab this durable controller for just $288 at Amazon right now.
PDP Victrix Pro FS
This model is compatible with PC, PS5, and PS4, and it’s designed to be a tough piece of equipment. It’s constructed from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum so that it can handle the wear and tear of travel, you can access the internals quickly in case you want to modify it, and it has an ergonomic design with gentle curves.
This model also has Sanwa parts inside of it–30mm Sanwa Denshi buttons and a patented Link 2 Detachable Joystick on a Sanwa JLF Base–so that makes it a real winner for some of the biggest fighting games like Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Tekken, Soul Calibur, and more. It’s even easy to cart around as it comes with carrying handles and cable organizers.
If you are looking for an extra controller for your player two but aren’t quite ready to invest in a fight stick in this price range, you should definitely take a look at Woot’s deal on the 8BitDo Arcade Stick for Xbox and PC. This wireless arcade stick released earlier this year for $120, but right now you can grab it for only $75 while supplies last. It’s certainly not as high-end as the Victrix stick, but it’s hard to beat at the $75 price.
In addition to fight sticks, there are plenty of controller deals that are worth checking out. PS5 DualSense controllers have dropped to $49 for Black Friday, and the PowerA MOGA XP-Ultra wireless controller for Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Android has a modular design that can be altered to suit your specific needs. Switch owners should consider picking up one of the steeply discounted Hori Split Pads for handheld play or a pro-style 8BitDo Ultimate for Switch and PC.
