Microsoft has had its game streaming service Project xCloud in beta for quite a while now. Gearing up to its official launch in September, the company has unveiled a couple of mobile gaming accessories. These are not made by the company, but are instead licensed to other accessory makers.
The first on the list isn’t exactly new though, as it’s the Razer Kishi. First unveiled in CES, the accessory essentially allowed you to play your Android or iOS games like you would on a Nintendo Switch. This new edition, on the other hand, is specific to the Xbox. This is the only one that is officially available in Malaysia, for RM469.
Following that, there’s the 8BitDo SN30 Pro. This is a little more interesting, as it’s basically an Xbox controller with a symmetrical analogue stick layout. There’s also a built-in stand for your phone, which connects to the controller via Bluetooth. This is priced at US$44.99 (~RM189).
PowerA has something similar too, with its MOGA Mobile Gaming Clip 2. Unlike the other two items above, this one is just a clip that holds your phone above your Xbox wireless controller. The company also has the XP7-X. It is very similar to the Razer Kishi, but with ergonomics closer to that of an Xbox controller. And then there’s the XP5-X Plus, which is an actual Xbox controller. These will be priced at US$14.99 (~RM63), US$99.99 (~RM420), and US$69.99 (~RM294), respectively.
And finally, the SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox. It comes with a USB-C wireless dongle that you plug into your phone for its wireless functionality. The headset also comes with a noise-cancelling, detachable mic, so it’s quite the feature complete gaming headset. This will also be priced at US$99.99 (~RM420).
