The thing to remember is that all retailers are not created equal, and it pays to double-check competitors. “Consumers shouldn’t assume that just because a product is discounted that it’s the best price out there. I recommend checking for the product on one to two other retailers to compare the regular price with a potential “sale” price to ensure you’re actually getting the best deal,” echoes Kristen Gall, Retail and Shopping Expert for .

The DualSense controller is a work of art, especially with the new haptic feedback features. These features usually carry a high price tag, which is why a $49 controller is such an great offer. You can get it in one of seven colors.

“By far the best controller I’ve ever used, I have used box, Xbox Elite, Razer Wolverines, all of it. While some such as the Razer Wolverine may feel nicer, they don’t match up with the capabilities of the PS5 controller especially on PC. Steam supports the haptic feedback in almost all games, and it does support adaptive triggers in most PS titles. By far the best controller I’ve used,” .
