Top 5 Shops With the Best Cheap Custom Controllers

Cheap Custom Controllers for Xbox ONE and PS4

How long have you wanted one of your own?

Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? Months?​

Yeah. They're pretty badass, aren't they?

It's too bad their price tags are always in the hundreds.​ The most expensive I've seen was nearly $600. Crazy.

But luckily for you, I've done a little bit of research. And I'm gonna share some of it with you.

In this post, I'll show you 5 online shops that offer the best cheap custom controllers for both Xbox One and PS4.

That's right. You'll be able to save a few extra bucks you could spend on something else. A new game, perhaps? Or maybe some headsets or wicked gaming chair.

Anyway, let's get started.​

Top 5 Shops Where You Can Buy Cheap Custom Controllers

So how much does a regular Xbox ONE or PS4 controller go for? About $50 to $75, right?

So before we move on, I just wanna make this one thing clear:

You are not gonna get a custom controller at a regular retail price.

I'd say the average price for a high-quality custom controller is around $125 to $150. That's including the cool stuff like remappable buttons, tricked out thumbsticks, etc.

So, we're gonna look for controllers that are in the 80 to 120-dollar range.

Let's check out the first place on our list.​

1. Amazon

Yeah! The place that has everything. Literally.

The cheapest custom controller I could find was, or is, on Amazon.​ Their list prices are £60, $65USD, and $75CAD.

​However, it doesn't come with all the cool stuff like buttons in the back and feel-good thumbsticks.

But you do get the customized shell, which is basically only a different color.

Here's an example:

This one's their blue controller for Xbox ONE.​

They also have 8 other designs.

They are all below 100 bucks. Except for the elite controller.

The PS4 controllers are about the same. In terms of pricing.​

The selection is a little smaller, though. ​From their controller page, they have 6.

2. Evil Controllers

Evil Controllers' products have a wide price range. They're all around $80 to $350 (USD).

Their custom controllers are between $80 and $200 for both Xbox ONE and PS4. But that could go up if you decide to add on features like the Master Mod, buttons in the back, and PRO thumbsticks.

But since we're looking for cheaper custom controllers, let's not talk about the ones that would cost you hundreds of dollars.

Right now, they have 18 Xbox ONE controllers in our price range. Specifically, $80 to $110.

For PS4, they have 23 controllers between $90 and #110.

In my opinion, those are great prices for great controllers. Highly recommended.

3. Custom Controllers UK

If you're from the UK, then you should at least consider getting your controllers from CCUK.

For Xbox ONE, their controllers are from £69.99 to £119.99.

And for PS4, it's £79.99 to £89.99. Which is pretty good.

But if you're somewhere where euros and pounds aren't your local currency, those prices will rise up to around 30 to 60 dollars. Which may effect our $120 borderline.

If you're outside the UK, you will have to pay an extra 17 pounds for shipping and handling.

All in all, their custom controllers are among the best in the industry.

4. Controller Chaos

Controller Chaos's controllers are among the cheapest I've ever seen.

Right now, their cheapest custom controllers are from $70 to $120. Right in our price range. And that's for both Xbox ONE and PS4.

Controller Chaos also has the most controllers to choose from. So that's awesome.

They even have multiple categories. A few examples: matte, chrome, YouTubers, and limited edition.

5. Controller Plus (pluscontrollers.com)

Controller Plus is different. They don't really have any custom controllers ready to ship. But you do get to "build your own."

They have ​the Budget Builder and the Create Your Own builder.

The Budget Builder lets you change the colors of the shell/base, buttons, D-pad, triggers, and thumbsticks for a flat price. $100. It also gives you the option to add your GamerTag.

The CYO builder let's you do all of that and more. Like adding splatter, a custom logo, letters to the buttons, faster processing time, and a custom finish (metallic, matte, etc).​

After testing it out, the cheapest I got was $107 and change.​

What I didn't like about the controller builders is they don't give you a preview of your custom "built" controller.​ That sucks.

But they are one of the most trusted shops in the custom controller​ area.

Bonus: ModJunkiez

​The ModJunkiez controllers are right on the borderline. All their custom controllers start at 120 bucks.

Normally, I probably wouldn't even bother including borderline on my list. But it's ModJunkiez.​

They're one of my favorite controller shops. And I feel they don't get the respect and exposure they deserve.

I still recommend their controllers. Fully.

Wrapping it up

I hope I have helped you find cheap custom controllers for whichever console gamer you are. (I like both, but been playing on Xbox ONE lately.)

But if you're still unsure, I'll say this:

  • Amazon's controllers are great. And they have online stores everywhere (.ca, co.uk, etc). That means they'll have a fair price for your local currency. CHECK THEM OUT - Xbox ONE | PS4
  • Go for Custom Controllers UK if you're in the UK. They have great prices. CHECK THEM OUT - Xbox ONE | PS4
  • Go for ControllerPlus if you're really strapped for cash. Their virtual controller builder will let you build your own for $100 or less. But, you won't get to see what your controller might look like (until you get it). CHECK THEM OUT - Xbox ONE | PS4
  • Go for Controller Chaos if you're cool with tons of choices. They have lots. 😉 CHECK THEM OUT - Xbox ONE | PS4
  • ModJunkiez is one of my favorites. Ever since I found out about them, they've been in my top 3. CHECK THEM OUT
  • My #1 recommendation is Evil Controllers. Their controllers are great and their pricing is right in our range. CHECK THEM OUT - Xbox ONE | PS4

I’m pretty satisfied with the $125 to $150 for custom controllers, as long as quality is good. You shared something good Julian, saving some bucks gives us options and choices on what’s in the market today. Thank you.
