Whether it’s feeling good, looking good or a bit of both, there are plenty of accessories available to add to your gaming experience. We take a look at some of the cool gaming things that you can get your hands on at JB Hi-Fi this month.
Xbox Wireless Controller Aqua Shift
If you like your Xbox world colourful then there have been plenty of treats to break up the black and white controller-wise, and this trend continues with the wild new Aqua Shift Special Edition. Described by Microsoft as “surreal”, we’re not sure that we’d go that far, but this ever-so-shiny wireless Bluetooth number does give off a cool colour shift effect, and boasts handy rubberised side grips as well.
IT’S ACE TO SEE YOUR FACE!
Streaming experts Elgato bring high-tech to their latest webcam, with a pro-grade lens and up-to-the-minute Sony image sensor wizardry. It promises uncompressed 1080p video without artefacts and, unlike most webcams, you can adjust exposure manually to get you looking just right, then save those settings onboard via included software. It also comes with both a tripod screw mount and handy monitor clip.
Switch Commuter Case (Tom Nook)
When in portable mode, Nintendo’s Switch can still give you quite a bit to have to schlep around, so why not do it in style? This snazzy-looking Animal Crossing-themed carry-all isn’t just a pretty case, it cleverly houses your Switch, a Pro Controller, an AC Adapter, additional Joy-Con controllers and up to 14 games, plus it has room left over for other small gaming accessories. It’s also available in Mario and Zelda flavours.
PASS THE TORCH
Roccat Torch Studio-Grade USB Microphone
If you’re a creator, or looking at getting a start, more than pretty much anything else you need a top-quality microphone. Roccat’s Torch packs studio grade features into a smart-looking setup, and alleviates the need for a separate mixer by including one in its base. With three configurable pickup patterns, 24-bit audio, RGB lighting, a built-in pop guard and industry standard mounting, you’ll have never sounded better!
PLAY WITH CHARACTER
Faceoff Controller Deluxe + Audio for Nintendo Switch (Mario)
Nintendo’s Switch Pro Controller is an ace piece of kit, but unless you snag a limited edition it’s a bit drab looking. Enter the Faceoff Controller Deluxe, offering a cool Mario design, and some features usually only reserved for more expensive gaming pads. It’s wired – so there’s no latency or charging – and it’s also headset compatible, has programmable rear paddle controls and interchangeable faceplates, plus it also comes in Animal Crossing and Zelda designs.
