Microsoft Announces Next-Gen Xbox Accessories

When the Xbox Series S and Series become available for preorder tomorrow, you can also pick up some new versions of classic accessories.

“On November 10, we’re jumping into the next generation of gaming with Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S,” Microsoft’s Navin Kumar writes. “To ensure the most optimal next-gen gaming experience, we’ve created a new lineup of Xbox accessories, developed with you, the gamer, in mind.”

Among the new accessories are:

New Xbox Wireless Controller. In addition to the black and white versions of the new Xbox Wireless Controller that Microsoft has already shown off, the software giant will offer a version in Shock Blue, which seems specifically designed for PlayStation traitors. Each will cost $59.99.

PC controller bundles. New versions of the Xbox Wireless Controller + Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 and Xbox Wireless Controller + USB-C Cable ($24.99) bundles will let you provide the new controllers with wireless and wired options.

New Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable. A new version of the Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable lets you charge the new controller fully in under 4 hours and can be used while you play.

Each accessory can be preordered beginning September 22, 2020 at 8 am PT in the United States and 8 am in your local time elsewhere, and if you preorder from Microsoft, they will ship November 10. Additionally, Beginning October 14, Xbox Design Lab will be going offline temporarily and will return in 2021.

    <p>I think it would be safe to say the Elite Controller 3 will be USB-C. Any whispers Paul on the release? </p>

    <p>I'd love to see a media remote that doesn't require almost straight directed aim. </p>
