    Default Where can I find a Xbox elite controller?

    Hi All,

    My boy wants a Xbox elite controller for his birthday, but the takealot price is a bit hairy. Does anyone know where they are available at a better price?

    Regards

    Jan

    Amazon calculate tax and courier fees so you don't deal with the post office or sars at all. Parcel gets deliver to your door.

    Amazon doesn't use SAPO. It's normally Aramex or the like.

    I've had 2 orders (1 Oculus Rift, then 2 Land Rover remote casings), the former took 13 days to get here, the latter took 9 days.

    JIp - the CNA one is well priced. On Amazon it will cost me around R2,680 to get it here including shipping and taxes., so about 10% cheaper. Probably not worth it to buy from the US then...

    Amazon is a sure fire bet for stock.

    That CNA price is very good and I would go for that before it's gone though.

    You do think that...until you use it and can no longer settle for the normal controllers.

    The modular nature also means you can replace a lot of the parts that wear out quite easily so it can last for years.

    It's a pro controller and it's that price for a reason.

    If you think this is expensive, you should check out the Scuf ones...
