This arcade stick is designed to give you the ultimate control and precision in your favorite games, and it works with Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 devices. Today, you can get it for a killer deal at Woot, where it is on sale for only $74.99, down from its regular price of $119.99. That’s the lowest it has ever been, and you don’t want to miss this opportunity to save 38% on this amazing accessory. Currently, Woot only have the white on sale, but Amazon are also listing the black at a slightly smaller discount — we think the white is cooler anyway.

The 8BitDo Arcade Stick is not your ordinary controller. It features a customizable layout, with a large 8-way joystick and eight full-size buttons that you can swap and remap to suit your preferences. You can also adjust the sensitivity and toggle between D-input and X-input modes. It has a 1000mAh rechargeable battery that lasts up to 40 hours on a single charge, and it connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or 2.4G receiver, or wired via USB-C cable. It also has a turbo function and a switch for toggling between Xbox and Nintendo Switch modes.

More importantly, there has been a recent crackdown by Xbox on using unlicensed third-party accessories on Xbox, of which the fighting stick market was primarily affected. Luckily, this particular stick does carry the Xbox licensed label, so you don't need to worry about its compatibility. While the selection of officially licensed fighting sticks for Xbox is somewhat limited, featuring brands like Hori and 8BitDo, it's reassuring to have quality options. And, with Microsoft gradually expanding its program for approved third-party wireless Xbox controllers, we can look forward to more choices in the future. Until then, the 8Bitdo Arcade Stick has stood out as the best value option, combining nostalgia and high-quality performance to fight for a place among the top Xbox controllers.

But the best part is that you can use it to play the new Killer Instinct Anniversary Edition, which came out today and has all the content and improvements from the classic series. You can enjoy the arcade-style fighting with Jago, Orchid, Fulgore, and more and show off your skills and combos.

If you want to dominate in fighting games, you need the 8Bitdo Arcade Stick for Xbox. It gives you the accuracy and control you need for games like Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat 11 on Xbox Game Pass. And feel like you are in the arcade. This really is the best way to experience your fighting games.
