Black Friday 2023

Boost your gaming experience with a cheap Xbox controller on Black Friday 2023!

Updated on 2 November, 2023 - Do you ever miss the days of couch co-op games on the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 or even the Dreamcast (remember those?). Nowadays, the direction from game production companies is to create single-player RPGs and build an online community to enjoy multiplayer gaming virtually, rather than having friends over in the flesh! Luckily, there is still a customer demand for local co-op games (myself included) and we are now seeing a slow rise again in game titles creating local multiplayer modes. As such, you may want to look out for another cheap Xbox controller, PS4 controller, or Nintendo Switch Joy Con this Black Friday 2023 to bring back the good old days! Here is a list of some great game titles to look out for on the Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch that provide local multiplayer.

First of all, is Black Friday the best time to get an Xbox controller?

You may be tempted to wait for other sales events to get an Xbox controller or other console controllers, but Adobe reports that electronics go at their lowest price during Black Friday week, based on how last year went. This year, we’re anticipating retailers to advertise Black Friday deals earlier with consumer behaviour shifting towards getting their shopping done early, in order to spread out the cost of their holiday plans. 

We advise to be on the lookout from the start of November, but really decide during Black Friday week to ensure you get the best deal possible for yourself. Equally, Cyber Monday is looking to be an extension of Black Friday deals in order for retailers to maximise November as a month of sales to get rid of old inventory.

Which retailers are offering Black Friday Xbox controller deals?

You can expect a lot of the usual tech retailers to offer Black Friday deals such as John Lewis, Currys, Argos, and Game. It goes without saying that Amazon will always be present during Black Friday, so it will be worth comparing prices from all retailers during Black Friday week.

We've rounded up a few Black Friday deals below (prices checked on 02/11/2023) that are advertised already, but when you compare with Back Market's refurbished prices you'll start to see a clear winner!

  • Amazon UK: save up to £10 off a wide range of Xbox series controllers

  • Argos: receive "money off bundles" when you purchase an Xbox controller

  • Very: save £15.99 on the Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 in Core Blue for £109, instead of £124.99

In comparison to a refurbished Xbox controller, you can save between 30% - 50% off the price of new, plus receive 1-year warranty and 30-days to change your mind when
