    Local electronics store?
    Ebay?
    Craigslist?
    Other US sites that sell videogame accessories?

    You won't find one under 25 quid tho, their still being produced.

    Logitech F310 controllers are compatible with Xbox 360 and you can pick one of them for cheap.

    Best Buy has a few cheap controllers.

    They have the PDP Battlefield 4 controller, for $15. But it's in store only, and most stores seem to be sold out.
    The PowerA Fus1on Tournament is available for $20. Stock seems pretty limited on that one also.
    The PDP Afterglow is $30 and in stock.

    Target also has several around $30, including the Hori Gem Pad Ex.

    Oh the logitech logo in the front is actually a home button. Now you know I wouldn't leave you with a controller that works but you can't login with it lol.

    I personally don't deal with 3rd party controllers.
    Retail 360 controllers are expensive cause their 1st party and are still being made.

    I am a big MadCatz fan myself over the 1st party. I think it was because they made the best Streetfighter Controllers for the older console. I have a Detroit Lions MadCatz wired Xbox 360 controller and it feels great.

    Only console that has good 3rd party controllers is N64.
    Other then that, the newer systems have perfectly fine first party ones imho.

    I can hit combos that I couldn't hit on a 3rd party controller with ease. You know they also sell mini controllers that are 3rd party for the Xbox 360 so children with smaller hands can play. There is a place for 3rd party controllers :)

    Well sadly, Target and Best Buy don't have it around here. I know some city have but it too far to drive.

    For the Target ones, you may be able to do a ship to store.

    Game Stop may also have a cheap third party to get you by. You'll wanna replace that when you can, as some third party controllers are junk.

    Gamestop sell their own 360 brand controller for $24.99. Now to me it feels like the official controller.

    That is the same controller I have but with a Detroit Lion design. That's my streetfighter/ME3 controller. You got big hands don't you?
    LOL I think I got mines brand new for $14.99 at the time.
