The Xbox One is launching later this year. Sometime in November actually. The system will retail for $499 here in the United States. With that you get an Xbox One, next-generation Kinect, and the new Xbox One controller, and a 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold for new members. We’re bound to see a handful of third-party accessories, but these are the official accessories you’ll be able to pick up on day one.
In the past the official Xbox chat headset has left a lot to be desired. It was flimsy, broke often, and overtime would just stop working. While we haven’t had a “heads-on” with the new Xbox One chat headset it’s hard to ignore that it isn’t an immediate improvement over the outgoing Xbox 360 headset. The volume and mute controls are built into the portion of the headset that plugs into the bottom of your Xbox One controller.
The second accessory you’ll want to get is the Xbox One Play & Charge kit. This kit has a lithium ion battery pack that goes in the Xbox One controller. It’s rechargeable and includes a charging cable that plugs into the console. Between this and the chat headset above you’ll most definitely be wanting to pick up the Play & Charge kit.
In addition to the above accessories there are already a handful of third-party accessories for the Xbox One. Those include: Turtle Beach Ear Force XO SEVEN, Turtle Beach Ear Force XO FOUR, Polk 4 Shot Xbox One gaming headphones, Polk N1 SurroundBar, and the Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 for Xbox One (Say that five times fast. No don’t). E3 ends tomorrow, so we’ll hit up the showroom floor and hunt down these accessories for the Xbox One and get some hands on impressions.
What do you think you’ll be picking up day one to go with your Xbox One? Don’t forget to experience the Xbox booth from E3 vicariously through us.
