Gamers have always been a demographic that gets overwhelmed by Black Friday deals and that has also been the case this year, with countless fantastic discounts on games, consoles, PCs, and related accessories emerging from all parts of the web. Another one such offering just surfaced online and comes in the form of a massive 50 percent discount on the SteelSeries Stratus XL, a Bluetooth gaming controller that can now be yours for just $29.99, having temporarily ditched its $60 price tag. SteelSeries didn't clarify on how long the offer will be good for but if history is any indication, expect to see the Stratus XL go out of stock over the weekend, if not later today.
Besides a premium build that includes two high-quality thumbsticks and all keys you'd come to expect from a contemporary gamepad, as well as some extra programmable buttons, the SteelSeries Stratus XL also boasts native support for everything from Windows to Android, as well as popular virtual reality headsets such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and the Samsung Gear VR. If you're on the lookout for a versatile controller that's just as comfortable as the vanilla console ones but can easily connect to pretty much any other device, the SteelSeries Stratus XL is a gadget that will deliver on all of those fronts, and then some. The controller is powered by two standard AA batteries, with a couple of such cells already coming bundled with your purchase. Free domestic shipping is also part of the package, whereas optional three-year and four-year protection plans can be acquired for just a few extra bucks and come on top of your regular warranty.
So, if you're interested in getting a great bargain on a gaming controller that you can gift this holiday season or use it yourself, the SteelSeries Stratus XL should be at the very top of your wishlist, so long as this massive price cut applies.
