The Microsoft Xbox One is one of the most common gift items during Christmas. While playing on a new console can be very thrilling, using accessories can definitely add more excitement to the gaming experience.
Here are some of the best Xbox One accessories that users should try with their new gaming consoles.
Elite Wireless Controller
The Elite Wireless Controller for the Xbox One comes fully equipped with all the buttons present on the original controller, but it has paddles on the back. The controller comes with a carry case, which makes it easy for gamers to carry it over outside home.
The controller can also be customized with an app that can offer an enhanced gaming experience to Xbox One owner. The Elite Wireless Controller is available for $149 on Amazon. Although temporarily out of stock, customers can still order now and get the delivery of the controller when it becomes available.
HGST Touro S 1 TB 7200RPM USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
Hard drive space can be a problem for gamers who want to save many games on their console. The external hard drive comes to the rescue for those who do not want to replace the console’s hard drive or crack open the gaming console.
The HGST Touro S external hard drive can be plugged into the Xbox One with a USB 3.0 drive and users can instantly get 1 TB of additional storage.
The actual price of the external hard drive is $99.95 and it is currently available on Amazon for $69.97.
Xbox One Play And Charge Kit
The Xbox One controller’s battery is better than on the DualShock 4 controller. However, the Xbox One controller also needs to be charged and the charge kit solves the problem. Users can just slide the battery at the back of the controller and charge the controller even while the controller is in use.
“Keep the action going with the Xbox One Play & Charge Kit. Recharge while you play or afterwards, even when your Xbox is in standby. The long-lasting rechargeable battery fully charges in under 4 hours. Say goodbye to disposable batteries and having to swap them out in the middle of a game,” says the product description.
The Xbox One accessory is available for $24.99 from the Microsoft Store.
Xbox One Kinect
The Kinect is a motion controller system, which uses an infrared array for detecting the motion and presence of players. A microphone can be used with the Kinect to record video footage and stream it later.
“Experience greater convenience and control with Kinect for Xbox One. Navigate your console without lifting a finger. Instantly capture screenshots and game clips. And change TV channels without ever searching for the remote. It’s time to get the most out of your Xbox One,” says the product description.
Kinect for Xbox One is available for $99.99 on the Microsoft Store and $99 on Amazon.
Gamers have to wait while their gaming console’s controllers charge. Performance Designed Products, a gaming console accessory maker, has announced a quick charger called the Super Charger, which can charge an Xbox One’s controller in a matter of seconds. A charge of under a minute will offer up to 10 to 12 hours of gameplay.
The Super Charger is still not available in the market, but PDP is expected to showcase the product at the International CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
