We dropped this deal on Twitter yesterday but it hasn’t gone away, and now we think it’s worth its own post. The deal comes from Newegg’s official eBay storefront and features a new Xbox One S controller plus a copy of Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain for just $40 altogether.
I don’t know about anyone else, but since buying a Day One Xbox One I’ve gone through four controllers. That’s just from the wear and tear of a casual gamer like me. I bet if you have over-excited kids playing Halo or maybe just a tendency to throw your controllers after a rough losing streak you’ve probably gone through just as many, if not more. So seeing a deal on the newest controller, with the headphone jack built right in so you don’t need that silly adapter, is pretty spectacular.
Even if the deal was just a controller for $40, that’s still a bargain. That price compares favorably to the $60 retail price or the average $48 street price at places like Amazon. In addition to the controller you get a hard copy of Metal Gear Solid V, which is not only a great game but also the first game to end a long line of Playstation exclusives for the Metal Gear Solid franchise. And any victory over Playstation is a victory for Xbox fans everywhere.
