By Manish Rajesh | Price Updated on 30-Jun-2020

While it's true that the #PCMasterRace needs nothing more than a gaming keyboard and mouse, it doesn't hurt to actually consider getting yourself a controller. For one thing, there are games out there *cough*Dark Souls*cough* that are designed to be played using a controller. Using a keyboard and mouse with such games simply hampers your overall experience. With the large majority of AAA developers introducing crossplay between consoles and PCs, many games come with a robust gamepad control scheme which is the ready to go the moment you plug a controller in. Of course, there's also the advantage of being able to leave the confines of your chair and sit comfortable on the couch for your gaming sessions. We've got a wide selection of controllers for you, with options for regular gaming, to specialised controllers for your flight sim fantasies.
