Hot on the heels of Microsoft’s unveiling of its next-generation Elite 2 Series Core professional gamepad, Amazon is now offering the Turtle Beach Xbox Recon wired gamepad for $44.95 shipped. Regularly $60 is 25% off the going rate, matching Amazon’s all-time low and the best we can find. It may not be a wireless solution like Microsoft’s new Core Elite 2, but this one is starting to $130 as well. The Recon is the most premium Xbox and Windows version of the new Turtle Beach REACT-R model we recently showed off, offering remappable buttons and the brand’s Superhuman Hearing Technology – a kind of proprietary audio enhancement system that “you makes it possible to hear subtle and game-changing sounds”. rings so you can live 20% longer and earn more. As you know from our hands-on video review, Recon also offers built-in controls for EQ presets, game and chat volume mixing, mic monitoring, a pair of mappable quick action buttons, a vibration feedback and “cooling grips”.

But if it’s just an extra Xbox gamepad you’re looking for, check out the PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller. While it’s a much smaller experience compared to the pro lite type of experience on the Turtle Beach Recon, it manages to $30 shipped on Amazon and is available in a wide range of styles and colors.
Here are all of today’s best console game deals and details on some of the recent additions to Game Pass. Last month, Microsoft announced early access to Madden NFL ’23 with EA Play as well as Midnight Fight Express with titles like Ghost Recon Wildlands, Two Point Campus, Cooking Simulator, and more before that.
