3.Hyperkin Duke Wired Controller For Xbox One (Amazon Link)

The Hyperkin Duke Wired Controller aims to bring us back to those good times with a modern but nostalgic Xbox controller made for meaty hands, complete with even the original Xbox startup screenplay when you press the home button!
However, the only thing retro is the design, as the precision analogue triggers are snappy and responsive with the bumpers and all other buttons working exactly as they should.

Like the retro life? Head on over to a review of the Hyerskin Wired controller right now.
4.Xbox Adaptive Controller(Microsoft Store Link)
Are you physically disabled or know anyone else who is? People are all created differently and there are no “normal” human beings and people love to play games and the Xbox adaptive controller is meant to help people access games who lack the mobility to use a standard controller.
Although an issue is a price as the main controller only has a d-pad and two buttons and although it works with a large variety of devices they all have to be purchased separately. Still, despite the price, Microsoft deserves the credit of making their devices more accessible to everyone check out my cool things your Xbox One can do here as I speak about other ways Microsoft is trying to make gaming more inclusive for everyone.
Just search Xbox Adaptive Controller to find it in the store. Check out a review of the adaptive controller down below
Do you want the very best immersive experience for your driving games? Then look no further than the Logitech G920 wheel & pedals which gives you realistic steering & pedal action that is built to last, with leather stitching and durable steel ball barrings.
Forza Horizon 4 is rated 92 on Metacritic and is considered one of the best racing games ever made, so why not get the very best experience that you can? The wheel will work with future Xbox consoles and is made with premium materials, it just feels expensive which is a good thing.
You get feedback as you drive, making the racing immersion more real with the ability to accelerate, brake and change gears like a real car! Save money on driving lessons and learn with Logitech! All the controls you need are located on the wheel together with paddle shifters.
But don’t take my word for it, check out the detailed review below. Budget steering wheels just don’t cut it as they lack most of the. features which make the Logitech wheel special. There are other more expensive wheels like but for the bundle you get a fantastic product that will serve most of your needs.
Check out the review of both the wheel and force shifter down below.
6.HORI Real Arcade Pro.V Kai Fighting Stick for Xbox One (Amazon Link)
Do you want to get the very best fighting game experience that you can? Man, I love fighting games from Mortal Kombat 11 to Tekken 7 but the truth is a standard controller just cannot compete with an arcade stick. If your playing against someone with a stick they just have such an advantage over you, this is a fact.
Luckily, for everyone, the Microsoft officially licensed Hori Kai fighting stick brings you right back into the arcade with its sleek chassis and original Hori Hayabusa sticks which give you precise precision with the responsive Hayabusa buttons. It can easily be modded to suit your unique needs(just purchase parts from a site like focusattack.com) and it works with Xbox 360 & Windows.
If you play fighting games to a decent level a stick is mandatory for putting your game to the next level, and Hori is one of the best brands out there. Check out a review of the stick.
Xbox One Controller Charging Options
1.AmazonBasics Play and Charge Kit For Xbox One (Amazon Link)
If you’re unlike me and have do not have dozens and dozens of AA batteries in the cellar just waiting for your Xbox One, some form of a play and charge kit is a necessity. The days of buying batteries are in the pas,t as simply charge your controller whilst you play and never worry about it dying.
Xbox has an official one but it’s more expensive than AmazonBasics and has it’s own problems and is basically the same thing anyway. A rechargeable 4 AA battery back such as this one from Energizer is also a fantastic solution as you don’t need a wire and simply can charge your batteries overnight ready to play in the morning.
2.Fosmon Dual Controller Charging Station (Amazon Link)
Do you just hate AA batteries? Or don’t want to charge with a play and charge kit or reply on unreliable rechargeable batteries? The Fosmon dual controller charging station is compatible with every Xbox One controller as it’s powerful 1000mah battery packs will provide you with a whopping 30-33 hours of playtime!
There is nothing to snap or plugin, simply place your controllers in the station and it will start charging automatically without needing to remove the battery! Cool right? A simple LED indicator will blink as the controllers are being charged and stay lit until the charge is finished.
Never worry about your controllers being dead ever again with the Fosmon charging station, as when you’re done simply let your controller charge overnight and your set for an all-day gaming session tomorrow!

It’s designed by Turtle Beach and they have been working with game consoles for years, according to this Amazon comment it makes headphones sound better!
“For the second time on my elite controller, the audio jack broke (a bit of a common problem).

I use a non-turtle beach headset and it works with no issues”

3.Xbox One Chat Pad+Chat Headset (Plugs into ChatPad) (Amazon Link)
Imagine the horror of having to mentally type out the titanic 25 character redemption codes for Xbox Live, I shudder every time. What if it could be so much easier? Having the Xbox One Chat Pad gives you a handy keyboard at all times and makes easily typing codes and send messages to your Xbox amigos a snap. Hey, there’s only so much time in a day, right?

Whilst, this is more expensive than its competitors surely it makes sense giving your expensive trusty Xbox one all the protection it needs? It also looks very discrete and doesn’t look like an electronics bag at all. Honestly, what’s there to lose from protecting your pricey electronics for only around 1/6 of the console with a bag that’s built to last?
Check out a review of the USA Gear Console carrying case down below

Xbox One External Hardrives
1.Seagate 2 TB Game Drive for Xbox One(Amazon Link)
As modern games get bigger us gamers need more and more space for all our games and DLC. If you don’t want to play the game of “what do I delete to make space” you simply NEED an external hard drive. 1TB of memory that is the internal memory of. most Xbox’s would only last about 25 Xbox titles before you need to delete other files to make room.
The Seagate Game Drive is the only XHD designed specifically for the Xbox One, you get a healthy 2TB of storage in a device small enough to fit in your trouser pocket. The performance is USB 3.0 allowing rapid performance and enough storage for around 50 Xbox One games. However, I recommend spending as much as you can for a better bang for your buck as with the Xbox Series S game files will only get larger. It also works for PS4 & your computer.
Check out a review of the game drive here
Best Xbox One Media Remote
Both the Xbox One S & X have the capability of playing 4K blue ray DVD’s to make your Xbox One ruly is an all in one entertainment system. This Talon remote allows you to switch easily between playing games, watching TV/movies, watching sports and listening to your favourite tunes effortlessly; it truly makes your console an all in one media entertainment system.
This product is officially licensed and is around 1/3rd the price of the official Xbox TV remote, complete with a gorgeous easy-grip design and does everything you need for a gaming remote.
Check out this fantastic cinematic review of the remote down below.
Best Xbox One Capture Card
1.Elgato Game Capture HD60 S For Xbox One/PS4 (Amazon Link)
What better way to remember your coolest killstreaks and gaming accomplishments than recording/streaming them at gorgeous 1080p 60FPS and keeping them forever?
If you want to be a gaming Youtuber or a streamer then getting a capture card is a must, as whilst the Xbox One inbuilt sharing system is decent it will never be as good as a capture card as you can only record 10 minutes of gameplay per recording.
Now, I know the Elgato sounds like Italian icecream but the capture card will record with way better quality than your Xbox sharing function and allows easy uploading to Youtube, Twitter, Twitch or Facebook at 1080p 60 FPS. What’s not to like?

Best Xbox One Portable Monitor
Wouldn’t it be great to play your lovely Xbox One out and about and not be confined to the walls of a house? The Nintendo Switch put portable gaming on the map but there is a solution, no matter where you are to still get the AAA home console gaming experience assuming you have a plug socket.
The GAEMS Vanguard comes with a non-reflection(screw you sun!) 19″ 720(1080pp upscaled) EL-Led display so your portable gaming will look crisp. Included in the box you get a PGE remote, PGE sling for portability, accessory storage customs, HDMI cable a power supply brick and much more.

Best Xbox One X Vertical Stand

Best Xbox One Services
Whilst it maybe isn’t an “accessory” it is the best deal in gaming right now as over 100+ games are all available under a Netflix like a subscription. These games run from original Xbox games to current AAA releases from only $9.99/month for a standard membership! Check out my article here to find out more.
I have several games on PS4 that I can simply sell because I don’t need them anymore as they’re all available in Xbox’s game pass such as OuterWorlds & GTA IV. Honesty this a known brainer and it is worth purchasing an Xbox One just for this service.
I never need to buy another game again! I am currently playing Witcher 3 & Halo 5 and have countless games in my back catalogue like Rage 2 and Alien Isolation. I believe Microsoft understood what poor business sense it is to be anti-consumer and the Xbox Game Pass is so pro-consumer with all the future big Xbox AAA releases coming out on the service it is a little ridiculous.
Simply get it! You will get regret it I promise you.
2.Xbox Live Gold 12 Month Membership (Amazon Link)
Xbox Live has been interchangeable with Xbox for more than a decade, I still remember scouring through my old games trying to find that special 48 hour Gold card so I could play online with friends! Although, did you know even if you don’t play online games all the time, there is still value in purchasing a subscription?
Having gold will give you weekly discounts to a wide variety of different games on the Xbox store including Xbox & Xbox 360 games due to Microsoft’s fantastic backwards compatibility!
Better still you get 4 completely free monthly games called “games with gold” where you can download and play for as long as your gold subscription is valid. Check out the games for January 2020, they do vary in quality but still free is free right?
3.EA ACCESS Game Subscription Service(Official EA ACCESS Link)
The game pass isn’t the only Netflix like a subscription for Xbox One as EA access is better for the Xbox One than PS4 and for only $4.99 it has games such as Battlefront 2 & Battlefield 1(check out the entire list here). The EA library is massive and genuinely competes with Gamepass and you will find something for everyone.
Better still, the subscription allows you to play EA titles before anyone else and you save 10% on EA digital purchases on Xbox One whether DLC or full games. EA has a massive vault of its previous releases and these are available free to play for EA access members.
Having Xbox Gamepass & EA ACCESS gives you a bigger game library than you can ever finish. Check out a review of the subscription below.
