Top 5 Accessories for the Xbox One

Like if this Guide is helpful

The Xbox One is a gaming console but it does much more than enable the user to play games. With connectivity options, users can access applications, such as Netflix and Hulu, to watch movies and television programmes. They can also use programmes, like Skype, to talk with friends and family while playing games. To get the most out of the Xbox One system, users may want to add some of the top five accessories.

Xbox One included accessories

It is exciting to open that Xbox One box for the first time, and users may not know what to expect in terms of accessories. The Xbox One arrives ready to play but users may want to order additional items along with the console so that they have everything that they want when the system arrives. Microsoft lists the following as shipping with the standard Xbox One:

  • Xbox One console (500 GB hard drive)
  • Wireless controller
  • Chat headset
  • HDMI cable
  • Power supply

Wireless controller

Wireless controller Wireless controllers keep gamers playing even across the room or with a handful of friends. In the past, the length of the cord tethering the controller to the console restricted gamers. While the console arrives with one wireless controller, gamers who enjoy playing with real-life friends need at least one other controller.
Xbox makes the wireless controller to connect seamlessly with the console. It has the standard Xbox controller shape and fits in one or both hands. The controller has easy-to-access buttons and toggles, as well as impulse triggers that send feedback to the player through vibrations in the controller.

Charging kit

Charging kit The wireless controllers for the Xbox One come with a battery pack that uses standard AA batteries. Depending on how much use the controllers see, it could mean that gamers go through quite a few disposable batteries. Even if users replace the standard AA batteries with rechargeable AA batteries, the batteries still need replacing. Another option is to use the Xbox One Play and Charge kit from Microsoft. The system replaces the standard battery pack with a rechargeable pack. Users can charge their controllers while using them or after use. The Energizer Charging System for Xbox One works in a similar manner as Microsoft's version.

Remote

Remote The Xbox One does a lot more than just play games and, for those occasions, users find more use from a standard remote control rather than the wireless game controller. Microsoft offers an Xbox One Media Remote made for just this purpose. Another remote to consider is the Nyko Media Remote for Xbox One. Both remotes operate the console as well as individual apps, such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video.

Racing wheel

Racing wheel

Many gamers love racing games and, while users can operate the game with a wireless controller, a racing wheel feels more realistic. These controllers look like a steering wheel in a vehicle and they have controls mounted on the wheel to access all aspects of the game. Gamers can use the wheel as it is or they can mount it in a stand for easier use.

Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel

Microsoft offers a standard racing wheel, but those who really enjoy these types of games are more likely to want a high-end version, such as the Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition. It is a scaled replica of the actual Ferrari steering wheel for the 458 and has both gas and brake pedals. The controller is compatible with computers and Xbox One gaming consoles.

 

 
 

How to buy accessories for the Xbox One on eBay

Use the categories on the side of the page to narrow down the results to find the perfect headset for you.
