A reliable controller is important for anyone’s gaming experience, and there are a handful of Xbox One controllers to choose from. While the standard Microsoft controller always gets the job done, there are many less expensive third party options. Or, if you want an upgrade, some companies make modded or custom controllers with a great feel. Most controllers connect to the Xbox One via Bluetooth, but these generally rely on batteries. If you want to get rid of the need for charging or replacing batteries, wired controllers tend to be less expensive. Buying a new Xbox One controller is a great time to find a controller with a fun or flashy style.
