RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 08/14/14
Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

Xbox One Launch Day Buyer's Guide: Games, Gear, And More

Accessories


 
Xbox Live Gold
Price: $59.99 (12 Months), $24.99 (3 Months)

Let's face it, you really can't enjoy the benefits of an Xbox console without a Gold subscription. With the bulk of its suite of apps, online multiplayer, and plenty of other perks hidden behind a subscription, access to virtually everything that makes the Xbox experience great requires a bit of cash on your end. That said, you totally get what you pay for... just let the millions of subscribers speak to that fact. This was very much the case with the Xbox 360, and there's absolutely no reason to believe it won't be the case yet again with Xbox One. Trust me, you'll want a Gold subscription.



Extra Controller
Price: $59.99

Xbox One's controller is a thing of beauty. Taking everything great from Xbox 360's stellar gamepad and fine-tuning it, Microsoft managed to one-up themselves and make what could very well be heralded as the greatest controller of all time. With a brand-new d-pad that puts the Xbox 360's mushy mess to shame and improved triggers that have built-in feedback, this controller is the very definition of next-gen hardware. All first-person shooter fans who love the staggered stick configuration will feel right at home here, and will likely appreciate the subtle texturing around each stick for extra grip. Honestly, there's virtually nothing to complain about with this controller, and for an additional $60, you might as well get a second to allow a friend to join in on the fun.
 

 
Play & Charge Kit
Price: $24.99

Sick of purchasing a bunch of AA batteries? Microsoft's Play & Charge Kit for Xbox One has you covered, providing a simple and easy solution to your controller-powering needs. It's a bit of a shame one isn't included in the box, as this is such a wonderful accessory that many would deem essential. Fortunately, it'll only set you back $25 bucks, which, if I may, is a small price to pay for the convenience it offers. Simply connect the controller to your console via the handy wire, and your new battery pack (which is now flush with the back of the controller, mind you) will charge right up. Technology. Don't you just love it?
