The Xbox One's Official List for the Greatest Accessories

The Xbox One has so many accessories available to buy on Amazon that it has to be one of the hardest lists ever to be made on this page.

The Xbox One accessories is finally getting the star treatment, as we dive into the deep end looking at the greatest items available at Amazon.

All of the accessories on this list are products that are available on the market place today, and have been sourced from the official Xbox store and Amazon. These items are extremely easy to pick up.

Plus, Xbox One accessories at times are game changing, so they would be sure to please gamers at Christmas, Birthdays or other special occasions to receive some of these products as presents. The Xbox brand has truly astonished us with some of their official branded accessory launches.

No.1 - Official Xbox One Controller - Xbox Design Lab Edition

Finally, Xbox has officially launched their customisable controllers, allowing the ability to choose the body, back, bumpers, triggers, D-pad, thumb-sticks, the ABXY, and view and menu icons colours. In addition, Xbox has also added the option to add a personalised engraving.

I personally opted for the engraving, costing an additional £7.99, to read my Xbox LIVE account name, Agent Neo 47. A nice option to sweeten the deal. Plus, it stands as a reminder that this was a controller that I personally had involvement in making mine.

If this is perhaps a controller that might be of interest to you, then be sure to get the best customisable combination, as it has been prompted that many who have gone through the personalisation process have opted for a Star Wars theme, Marvel theme, and so many other great themed looks and styles. Be sure to give it some thought.

No.2 - Xbox Stereo Headset

Who said that gaming headsets had to cost an arm and a leg to be the best at what they do. These people would be mistaken, as the official Xbox stereo headset is fully functional, padded and comfort guaranteed. Some might even say a steal, when compared to the bloated market with way too many branded gaming headphones to even have the effort to sit down and better understand which of the one hundred pound plus sets are worth the money.

Where can you find the worlds greatest (when comparing affordability, with functioning, with appeal, with durability and extended life expectancy) Xbox One gaming headset?: It would stand to be that the best place to find an Xbox One headset would be on the Xbox store, and this would be the correct answer.

How much does the official Xbox One stereo headset cost?: The official price is £39.99, and is a very appealing headset for Xbox One gamers looking for the all-round great headset.

No.3 - Logitech G920 UK Plug Driving Force Racing Wheel for Xbox One and PC

If you have the buzz for the racing gaming scene on the Xbox One, then you might be interested in enhancing the in-game experience with what has to be the best racing wheel set on the market at the moment.

There is the G29 gaming steering wheel, but unfortunately this set is exclusively available for the PS4 and PS3.

It is the Logitech G920 that is exclusively available for the Xbox One console, and we are personally not upset, even in the slightest.

The G920 is a great steering wheel experience for the console system, and even allows the user to spin the wheel in a 900 degree turn, basically meaning that the wheel can be turned in full motion, as though you were in a real car. Exciting!

The steering wheel comes with foot-pedals, and is well-built with flawless leather stitching around the wheel itself. Stunning!

Where can you purchase the Xbox One's greatest steering wheel set?: The product is currently available on the Amazon store, and can find a link below to find out further details.

No.9 - Play and Charge Kit (Xbox One)

- Product by Xbox

- Xbox One compatible

The Xbox One comes free with a controller, but the issue comes with the battery pack requirements. The PS4 comes free with a charging cable that can be plugged from the console into the controller, and this way they need not include a battery pack at all. Xbox One did not get the memo.

This is why it is handy having the play and charge kit, that changes the battery pack for a wired charging unit that plugs into the place where the battery pack was slotted in to the back of the controller. It is advisable to keep the charger plugged in at all times, as it can damage the wire if it is constantly being plugged and unplugged from the controller.

A simple accessory, but one that can become a money saver over time, as triple A batteries will need to be changed all of the time if you are an avid gamer.

The play and charge kit is manufactured by the official Xbox company so the quality for the product is guaranteed. In terms of durability for its life-span can easily take wear and tear and last for a couple of years at a time for its life-cycle. Compare this to the interchanging of traditional tripe A batteries you will no longer need to worry about having a good stock of batteries around the house.

Where can you purchase the play and charge kit?: The wired charging kit can be found on the Amazon store.

How much does the play and charge kit cost?: The official cost is £18.99.

No.10 - Turtle Beach Streaming Microphone

The Turtle Beach streaming microphone is a professional quality desktop microphone, that has zero-latency headphone output.

If you are a gaming streamer then chances are that you will need a microphone to commentate, and if this is the case then we recommend Turtle Beach, a microphone that looks and feels unique.

A comfortable product to get the best output for a games streaming session. The one stop shop for the perfect microphone experience, and adding commentary to gaming streams provides a better connection between the streamer and their audiences. People like to hear about the experience, and what has been done well by the gaming developers, and this microphone is the perfect addition to your gaming set-up.

Where can you purchase the Turtle Beach streaming microphone?: The Turtle Beach streaming microphone can be found on the Amazon store.

How much does the Turtle Beach streaming microphone cost?: The official cost is £79.99.

Summary

When thinking of buying the Xbox One the Xbox accessories are a key area for understanding given that they are essentially the tools required to enhance the experience.

The one accessory that we had not included within this list, but should go without saying in that it is a must for gaming privileges, is that of the Xbox LIVE subscription. In having Xbox LIVE you gain access to the online features within the games library, and some games that offer great functioning online includes Call of Duty, Titanfall, Rainbow Six: Siege, and GTA V. This is just a few of few that came to mind.

How much is Xbox LIVE?: The Xbox LIVE subscription codes can be bought from the Amazon store, for a reasonable price of £39.99. This is for the 12 month subscription, and is most advisable as it offers the most for your money.

Out of all of the accessories for the Xbox One that we have shared with you today the best and most practical would be the Xbox LIVE subscription, the play and charge kit and the stereo headset.

The extended accessories line that makes most sense to purchase when looking to treat yourself to some added extras that are not as necessary includes the Xbox controller ("Design Lab"), other special edition Xbox One controllers, and the Scufgaming controller (Xbox One version).

And, for those who take gaming to audiences online, the best Xbox One accessories to carry the weight of these tasks would include the Elgato game capture device, the Turtle Beach streaming microphone and the Seagate storage hard drive.
