Popular Xbox 360 Accessories: What They Do And Why You Need Them

Updated on July 14, 2010

The Xbox 360 has been one of the most popular video game consoles of our generation.  This is not surprising considering the wealth of games that are available to play with it and how enjoyable it makes gaming.  To make you gaming experience with the Xbox 360 that much more pleasurable there are a few different accessories that you may be interested in.  For one there is the 60GB starter pack which is great for a novice player.

 This kit will allow you to upgrade your console with a new hard drive and more advanced headset that allows you to play hands free and focus more on your game.  If you want a portable way to take your gamer profiles and saved games wherever you go, the Xbox 360 Memory Unit will be more your style.  You can use this to take your stored information wherever you want, whether you are heading to a neighbor’s house to play or traveling halfway around the world.  The added bonus is that the carrying case fits on a keychain so you never have to worry about losing it and it is so small you can keep it neatly tucked away in your purse.

 You should always have some extra cables for your system around just to be prepared.  The last thing you want is to be in the middle of a game only to have one of your cables kink up and stop working with no spares to be found.  There are component HD AV cables, HDMI cables and VHA HD AV cables.  For gamers who really enjoy chatting with family and friends while they are playing their Xbox, an accessory that would be suitable is the Xbox 360 Messenger Kit.

 Included in this kit are a Chatpad and headset.  The Chatpad features a full keyboard that has a backlit pad so you can see what to type even in a dimly lit room.  Then you can use the Chatpad to easily chat to your heart’s desire while playing a game.  The backlit buttons allow you to accurately type in words without spelling errors even if the room you are in is dimly lit.

 Then there is also the Xbox LIVE Vision Camera, another of the most popular accessories for the Xbox.  This enhances your gaming experience by letting you interact better with the people you are playing with.  These are just a few examples of the many Xbox 360 accessories for sale today.  Pick and choose to find the ones that are going to help make your gaming more enjoyable.
