Microsoft has finally released its next-gen consoles, the Xbox Series X and Series S. While you’re sitting there and waiting for the delivery of your new console, you can check out the list of some accessories, prepared by The Verge. With them you next-gen experience will be more immersive. 

Controller for next-gen Xbox

In first place comes a controller. You should know that you can pair your old Xbox One wireless controller with the new Series X and S consoles and enjoy the habitual gaming process. Nonetheless, it doesn’t count with the involvement you’ll get from totally new controllers with upgraded features. The new controller has a dedicated share button that allows you to take an instant screenshot and share it online. It’s also got a USB-C port for charging up Microsoft’s optional $24.99 play-and-charge rechargeable battery. Despite the stunning design and minor improvements to the d-pad and trigger, there are no more improvements to the Xbox controller. 

Moreover, the new controller can work not only with the Xbox console but with Android phones and your PC too. Switch on a Bluetooth connection to hook up with another device. In case your PC doesn’t have Bluetooth support, you can purchase Microsoft’s PC adapter for $24.99.

Seagate 1TB NVME SSD Expansion

If you can show off a huge collection of latter generation Xbox Games, you’ll surely need an external hard drive. The point is that the Xbox Series X contains a 1TB SSD storage, whilst the Series S has even less – 512GB SSD. It’s sad and funny, but in real life, the consoles come with even less. The Series S will offer only 364GB and the Series X storage can fit 802GB of content.

It’s reasonable to want more storage since some next-gen games have been announced to occupy more than 100GB. For example, there’s a remark that CoD: Black Ops Cold War is 136GB in size. At the same time, there’s now a desire to sacrifice any game in order to play a new one. Together with that, you’ll need some space to relocate all your Xbox One and Xbox 360 games to. 

Passing your old games to a slower, but cheaper storage will kill two birds with one stone. Your SSD space will not be overcrowded with old games, and you don’t need to make a choice about which game you need to remove. It’s important to note that all external USB drives feel a lack of speed in comparison with the Series X’s and Series S’s respective SSDs.

Certainly, if you need faster storage you can charge more money for the original 1TB SSDs storage that you can insert from behind the console. The price tag for these extensions is $220. Besides Microsoft mentions, you’ll not feel any difference between the mother storage and the external one. Whenever you want to go all-in, buy multiple 1TB cards. It is a cheat for players who’d like to stay in touch with more games.
