If you’re serious about playing games on your iPhone or iPad, you’ve no doubt followed with interest the recent batch of game controllers from Logitech, Moga, and SteelSeries. You’ve probably also blanched a bit at the $100 price tag accompanying each one.

Here’s good news: You can actually get a much better controller for less than half the price. Here’s how:

Step one: Buy a PlayStation 3 controller. (If you already own one, bonus — this whole exercise now has a price tag of $2.) Amazon sells the PS3 Dualshock 3 for $44.99, shipped, though you can find one for closer to $35 from various third-party sellers.
