If you're trying to get a PS4 controller cheap (opens in new tab) (or an Xbox One controller cheap (opens in new tab), for that matter), Currys has a few cracking deals on offer to tempt you. For starters, you can get a classic black DualShock 4 V2 wireless controller with a free copy of Anthem for just £39.99 (opens in new tab). The white DualShock 4 is the same price (opens in new tab), and you still get Anthem for your troubles. You don't have to stick to monochrome, either; Currys is offering the same deal with red (opens in new tab) and blue (opens in new tab) handsets too. Similarly, you can pick up white (opens in new tab) or blue (opens in new tab) Xbox One controllers with Anthem for £49.99 (in the case of the blue handset, you're still getting Anthem for free - for the white one, you're adding a fiver). Although the Bioware RPG has had a rough few months since it launched, who can say no to a free game? If nothing else, saving a bit of cash is certainly welcome as we edge toward the Black Friday game deals (opens in new tab) in November.
Not tempted by the mech-based MMO? You can always swap it out for six months of Spotify Premium so long as you spend £49.99 or more. In other words, you could pick up this handsome grey Xbox One handset (opens in new tab) or a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (opens in new tab) and get half-a-year of music at no extra cost. Those who want the black or white DualShock 4 with Spotify Premium will need to pick up something else as well because the handsets are only £39.99 apiece, but you could always add to that Anthem offer with whatever other items you need. An extra controller, Anthem, Spotify Premium, and 3 months of PlayStation Plus (opens in new tab) for £50, perhaps? Yes please.

Things seem to have been picking up for Anthem in the last few months, at least. Various bug-fixes and quality-of-life updates (opens in new tab) are nudging it closer to what we always hoped the game would be, so the future could be bright; Bioware's Casey Hudson has also said that he's keen to see the game "grow, evolve, and thrive for years to come" (opens in new tab).
