Black Friday deals are arriving early this year, making it easy to stock up on gaming gear without fighting through crowds. One of the best early discounts available right now is for the 8BitDo Ultimate Wireless Controller with Charging Dock, as it’s down to $40–the lowest price we’ve seen all year. If you’re in the market for a new gamepad, consider giving it a closer look, as it walked away with the crown in our best PC controller roundup.

What makes the 8BitDo Ultimate so compelling is its variety of pro features, most of which are typically reserved for pricier gamepads. This includes two customizable back paddles, custom profile switching, and up to 15 hours of playtime on a single charge. It also rarely drops below $45, making this a great time to cross it off your shopping list.

It’s particularly great for PC, as you can use the Ultimate Software to modify nearly every aspect of the controller, including stick sensitivity, trigger actuation range, and vibration intensity. And now that it’s just $40, it’s an easier recommendation than usual.
