    Cyberpunk 2077 is arguably the biggest video game release of this year. As a result, CD Projekt Red is going all-out in terms of cross-promotions. Last week, it revealed the Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One – including an appropriately themed controller, and now it's got some limited edition accesso

  • News Xbox Series X Controller Still Requires AA Batteries

    What year is it?

    The Xbox Series X pad is looking pretty nice, as you can see in this gallery. Microsoft has taken what was an already comfortable controller and improved it with a new D-Pad, share button and textured shoulder triggers. However, one aspect which hasn't changed from the Xbox One controller is the need for AA batteries. That's right...

  • Gallery Check Out The New Xbox Series X Controller

    Yes, it has a share button now

    Microsoft has just revealed some close-up shots of its latest controller. At first glance, the new Xbox Series X controller doesn't look a million miles away from the design of the Xbox One pad – after all, if something isn't broke, why fix it? – but we can assure you there are some welcome changes when you look a...

  • News Two New Official Xbox One Controller Colours Due to Launch

    Say hello to copper and dusk

    Microsoft will launch two new official Xbox One controller colours in the form of Dusk Shadow and Copper Shadow, it has been revealed. Images started to crop up online late last week with no official Microsoft announcement in sight, but now the Swedish arm of giant European retailer MediaMarkt is listing both products,...

  • News Turtle Beach Launches Firmware Update 2.0 for Elite 800X Headset

    Improvements all over the show

    Turtle Beach has released a new firmware update for their Elite 800X Wireless Headset for Xbox One which should alleviate a few of the common problems reported by early adopters. The new firmware brings with it a whole bunch of improvements, such as automatic gain control for the microphone, stability updates, a few...

  • Accessory Review PDP Afterglow AG 7 Wireless Headset for Xbox One

    All glown up?

    When we approached PDP's Afterglow AG7 Wireless Xbox One Headset for review, we were skeptical that it would be able to deliver on all of its promises. Since a wired headset with stellar audio quality usually runs around $100, it's hard to believe a model that incorporates wireless functionality could survive without sacrificing at...

  • News Officially Licensed Xbox One Star Wars Controllers Go Up For Preorder

    These might not be the controllers you're looking for

    PowerA has announced that on April 30th, they'll release three officially licensed Star Wars-themed controllers for Xbox One in the US. We'd imagine that they'll reach the UK and Europe in due course. R2D2, Stormtrooper, and Darth Vader designs are available, but the (wireless) force is weak...

  • Accessory Review PDP Afterglow Karga Xbox One Headset

    Go with the glow

    Unless you’re a super-audiophile, gaming headsets are much of a muchness. They need to tick a few essential boxes, sure, but as long as they get the basics right, there isn’t much that can go wrong. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t scope for innovation and improvement, though, and PDP have had a good shot at bringing a...

  • Accessory Review PDP Rock Candy Xbox One Wired Controller

    Cheap and not so cheerful

    When it comes to second controllers that are solely for use by little brothers, sisters, and visitors, Microsoft’s official option may be a little bit pricey. Running at $75 for a controller with a Play and Charge kit and with very few choices available, gone are the days when you could pick up a relatively cheap...

  • Accessory Review PDP Energizer 2x Xbox One Charging System

    The power of two

    With the Xbox One containing three USB ports – two on the back, one on the side – and the console itself having a limited amount of HDD space, if you pick up an external drive to provide more storage space, you’re already down to two available ports. If you have a need to charge two controllers at a time, you’re all done...

  • News Microsoft Defends Lack of Bundled Headset with Xbox One

    You don't need that! You've got Kinect!

    Microsoft has thrown out some sandbags and jumped into the trenches to defend its decision to not include a headset with the Xbox One console. A headset will be available at launch, but will be sold separately (price unconfirmed as yet), and this has given people cause to complain due to the fact that the...

  • News GamingZap Shows Off New Powerless Kinect Adaptor

    It'll make sense

    When Microsoft launched Kinect in November 2010, it faced a problem: how to get the sensor to draw power from older Xbox 360 consoles, as well as the newer S models. The simple solution was to bundle a USB to mains adaptor, but that still requires a separate plug socket. UK retailer GamingZap has just launched a way around it: the...

  • News Make Your Room Bigger with Nyko's Kinect Zoom

    If your living room isn't quite big enough for Kinect to work properly, you might be interested in Nyko's handy new accessory, the Zoom for Kinect. The peripheral manufacturer has announced the new bit of kit will release across North America on 23rd August at $29.99. Clipping over Kinect's eyes, the accessory means you'll...

  • News Kinect, PlayStation Eye and Wii All Mount Your TV

    Why change?

    CTA Digital's Kinect wall mount and TV clip lets you easily switch between the sensor and Sony's PlayStation Eye for PlayStation Move, but if that's just too much like hard work — or you have a Nintendo Wii too — then dreamGear's Trimount might be for you. The enormous mount lets you stack your Kinect, Eye camera and Wii sensor bar...
