Next-gen Xbox accessories up for pre-order at 8.00 am AEST

Next-gen Xbox accessories were today announced by Microsoft — available for pre-order in under an hour — and include a new rechargable battery pack & USB-C cable alongside controllers in Carbon Black and Shock Blue.

The new Black and Blue controllers will feature the same enhancements as the controllers included with the Xbox Series S & X, including a dedicated Share button and a new hybrid D-pad. The controllers can connect to Xbox consoles automatically, and special bundles with a Wireless Adapter or USB-C cable are available on PC if needed (they can connect via Bluetooth if your PC supports that without need for either bundle).

All of the new accessories can be pre-ordered from 8.00 am AEST here in Australia. We’ve links and local pricing below, where available:
