With Microsoft expanding Xbox Cloud Gaming to Android and iOS, this PowerA MOGA clip is a must-have accessory. You can mount your phone to any Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S controller, with great articulation and durability scoring this our best accessory award in 2019.
GameSir X2 Mobile Gaming Controller (opens in new tab)
The GameSir X2 presents an alternative to the Razer Kishi, with both Bluetooth and USB-C variants, depending on the device you use. It's even closer to Nintendo Switch ergonomics, plus with an adaptive size that fits even more devices.
Elgato Cam Link 4K (opens in new tab)
The Elgato Cam Link 4K is best suited for the streamers, allowing you to hook up DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices directly to your streaming setup. This device can deliver a massive upgrade over a standard PC webcam, supporting 4K resolution at 30Hz or upgraded to 60Hz at 1080p.
Note that all the best Xbox One accessories also work on current-gen Xbox Series X and Series S, unless they require Kinect or an IR Blaster. That comes from Microsoft's commitment to backward compatibility, extending to headsets, chargers, storage, and more.
Best Prime Day Xbox headset deals
Prime Day is bringing discounts across various Xbox One headsets, all with guaranteed compatibility extending to Xbox Series X and Series S. The available savings vary between manufacturers, with the added choice of wired versus wireless, or specific features. But whether a budget-conscious buyer or an enthusiast demanding the best, many top names have headsets suited to you. We'll be rounding up the best Prime Day gaming headset deals and those prices you shouldn't ignore.
Here are some headsets that are likely to get price drops worth keeping an eye on, but we'll be adding more throughout the week.
HyperX CloudX Headset (opens in new tab)
The HyperX CloudX has been a leading Xbox headset for years, which remains the case in 2022. This Prime Day, you see a saving on an ideal mid-range pair of cans, sleek and stylish with its durable aluminum frame and with a suite of features ideal for multiplayer gaming. For all the essentials without a crazy price tag, the CloudX remains one to beat.
SteelSeries Arctis 1 Headset (opens in new tab)
Built with Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One in mind, the SteelSeries Arctis 1 delivers incredible value with all the basics. Sound quality isn't half bad for the price, packing a noise-canceling microphone, and overall durable build quality. And with a simple 3.5mm connector, it hooks up to a ton of other devices too.
HyperX CloudX Flight Headset (opens in new tab)
This wireless headset joins the few Xbox headsets discounted ahead of Prime Day, ideal for those looking to cut the cable. The HyperX CloudX Flight nails its audio quality, comfort, and on-ear chat and game mixing, lasting up to 30 hours with each charge. One of the best wireless options out there without a crazy premium price tag.
Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 (opens in new tab)
The Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 joins the lineup of recommended headsets this Prime Day, delivering great audio at an amazing price. But its comfort sets this apart, with insanely soft cooling gel-infused fabric pads and a metal headband with a suspended pad.
HyperX CloudX Stinger Core (opens in new tab)
HyperX is one to watch for budget-friendly headsets, and Prime Day savings on its HyperX CloudX Stinger Core nails all the essentials for less. Its 40mm directional drivers provide quality stereo audio in line with the price, with an adjustable steel slider and foam ear cups for added comfort. It also packs in-line volume and microphone control, with an easy 3.5mm jack that connects to all new Xbox controllers.
With Prime Day bringing discounts to some of the best Xbox headsets, it's essential to choose the product with the features suited to you. Quick research never hurts before checkout, and it's best to consider what you need from a headset and how it fits into your gaming setup.
The crucial decision comes from wired versus wireless, with each bearing unique benefits and disadvantages. Wireless provides added versatility, and while the technology is now better than ever, you'll still need to recharge your headset regularly. Wired introduces a physical tether to consider, but the promise of simple, high-quality audio and a lower price tempts many.
The sound quality, cost, and other attributes should all be considered — and with Prime Day, a good deal never hurts, too. Microsoft has also committed to supporting all Xbox One headsets on Xbox Series X and Series S, making it safe to invest despite the cross-generation transition. You can check out with confidence, ensuring a purchase lasting for years to come.
Best Prime Day Xbox video game deals
Some Xbox games see hefty price reductions through the Prime Day window, ideal for those titles you may have missed from past months. Those savings will best serve those who favor physical, disc-based games, although select digital download codes may also receive cuts. While we continue to round up the best Prime Day video game deals, many of our Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S highlights feature below.
Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab)
While Cyberpunk 2077 courted controversy at launch, the game has been improved immeasurably since 2020, and represents a truly great sci-fi RPG well worth your time. Set in a dystopian future, Cyberpunk 2077 features some tremendous writing and gameplay, especially on current-generation consoles.
Resident Evil Village (opens in new tab)
Savings on Resident Evil Village discount one of the best Xbox games of recent memory, pushing forward the survival horror genre, and looking stunning in the process. This version works on Xbox One, with a seamless Xbox Series X|S upgrade, with new DLC on the horizon.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (opens in new tab)
Rainbow Six Siege carved its spot in the multiplayer shooter space, with tense tactical combat, supported by its rich lineup of Operators and gadgets. The game's success had continued over half a decade later, drawing millions of players, with quarter seasonal updates packed with free content.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla (opens in new tab)
Ubisoft's world of assassination makes its return with a Viking journey touching Norway and Britain's Dark Ages. Brutal combat and large-scale conflict take the stage, and you may be able to grab a sizeable saving for Prime Day.
New video game deals will continue to arise and disappear throughout Prime Day, with some of the best Xbox games even expected to see a discount. With physical games often cheaper than their digital counterparts, further savings can be hard to overlook.
Some existing Xbox One games are among the list of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S Optimized games, with many already pledging free upgrades. However, Xbox One games also remain playable into the new generation, alongside Xbox 360 and original Xbox, via backward compatibility.
Best Prime Day Xbox console and devices deals
A range of supply chain issues have made it difficult to find an Xbox in brand-new condition anywhere. For the past two years, we didn't see any major discounts on Xbox consoles for Prime Day, and 2022 will most likely be the same. However, we do know of a few deals you can grab already on refurbished consoles, and we'll be sure to update this roundup with more Xbox deals as they appear. Despite main console SKUs not getting deals, we may see bundled options, however.
Given the rise of Xbox Cloud Gaming, though, there may be some good deals on tablets and other devices that can augment your Xbox gaming, allowing you to play without a console at all. We'll stick some tablet deals in this segment too.
Xbox Series S (opens in new tab)
While it's unlikely that we'll see an Xbox Series S price cut for Amazon Prime Day given that it's relatively new and stocks are selling through quite regularly, we may see some interesting bundle deals emerge that'll make it worth keeping an eye on.
Xbox Series X (opens in new tab)
Similarly to the Xbox Series S, the Xbox Series X is a hot item and is highly unlikely to get any sort of price cut this early into its lifecycle. We may however see stock injections, or even special bundles throughout the week, making it worth keeping an eye on.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 (8.7 inch) (opens in new tab)
Wait, what? Why is an Android tablet an Xbox device? Well, thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming, if you combine this Galaxy Tablet with an Xbox controller or a USB-C gamepad clamp like the Razer Kishi V2, you practically have your very own portable Xbox. This is the cheapest good-quality small tablet with USB-C, making it ideal for Xbox Cloud Gaming.
While Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are now available for purchase, stock disappears from most retailers within minutes or a few hours at most. With the current generation still difficult to find even at regular price, don't expect to see Prime Day Xbox Series X|S deals for either console. However, restocks could take place over the two-day period.
