Xbox One accessories costs revealed


Microsoft has confirmed the official price of the Xbox One Chat Headset as £19.99 and the Xbox One Plug & Play Charge Kit as £19.99.

This comes after the controller was said to be priced at £44.99 although prices will obviously vary at retail, as you can see from ShopTo's prices which are already cheaper than the RRP.

You can pre-order accessories and the Xbox One console itself from ShopTo.

I can't speak for the retail side, but it's early days. New consoles are always expensive cause there is high demand. I also doubt there is much profit to be had.

Why is it £20 just for a wire that charges the controller, a bit much really don't you think?

Not too far off the prices that the 360 had when they first came out.

Paying for the privilege to charge my controller, YAY!

The pricing for all of this annoys me, I got my 360 wireless headset for £18. I just hope some of the conversion rates get sorted soon after the launch.

They have already said that 360 headsets will not work on the one, but they are working on an adapter, how much that'll cost I don't know.

Do we know if the headset is included with the console yet???

They said, they were 'looking into it', I have no idea what needs to be looked into, you can either do it or you can't, if they're still changing specs, then i don't see why you can't just through a headset in the box.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
If they put the headset in the box then they would have to up the console price (which they are not stupid enough to do seeing as it's already expensive) and I doubt they would just give them out at no extra cost even though it seems stupid to release a console without the standard headset.

I assume by Looking into it they just mean that they are going to see if the loss they make will be worth it. Correct me if im wrong though wasnt it only the original 360 that came with a headset? I know my slime one and the PS3 didn't.

Wait, what? You STILL need to buy a rechargable battery seperately for all the controllers on Xbone? Jesus... what year is this?
PrometheusFan 1 year ago
You don't need to buy one just get rechargeable batteries and you are sorted. At least the cable for the play and charge kit is a decent length on the 360 hate how short the PS3 charge cable is.

I think you all forget the concept of capitalism. Microsoft and Sony aren't trying to be your best friend with this, they owe us no favours. If Sony weren't around to generate competition then Microsoft would have us over a barrel and vice versa. You gotta remember everyone is out to make money or there be no point in doing it. Until people boycott the buying of a console, like the DRM fiasco, things wont change.

I can understand why people don't want to pay out money when then don't have to but I don't get why some seem so suprised by this? Like any company, Microsoft, Sony or whoever, they are there to make money? and being this is a totally new console, comes totally new expenses. Personally I shall pick up a headset, if they announce before launch they will throw it in with the console then bonus :) also I shall pick up a play and charge kit!

If the new controllers use AA (which it looks like these as says saves buying AA batteries in the description) or AAA batteries then I will not need a recharger / play and charge kit as I can just use my AA/AAA recharger. The lifetime of the rechargeable battery packs for the Xbox 360 were extremely short. The Xbox 360 needing batteries is better than the PS3 method as I always have some batteries ready to go - when the batteries run out, I then put them on charge and put in batteries previously charged up. The PS3 I have to wait for the controller to charge up before playing, as can not put in more batteries, and the lead is too short to play with whilst it is charging.

Making you buy a play/charge kit, or continue to use batteries for the entire year is not better than the PS3 method. I have a long enough PS3 cable to play and charge at the same time. Having to pay extra for a charge kit or batteries is just robbing the customer. To even think that's a better way than the Sony way is just complete fanboyism.

Not if you have a AA charger, you do not have to buy a play / charge kit. Also if you use the devices long enough then eventually they will not hold the charge and would need replacing, and with the PS3 controller it means buying another controller for £36, but with controllers that use batteries you just need to buy a 4 pack of rechargeable batteries which cost about £7 for a 4 pack. If you have a cable that is long enough you must have bought a longer one, as the supplied one is too short as another person commented the same above, or your console is right in front of you.

As amusing as it always is to watch your mental gymnastics in action Tony, you're trying to present an argument of equivalence where none exists. the use of AA battery packs is not in any way a better option for game console controllers as we have seen there are multiple additional costs associated with such a design: The cost of a charge pack, the cost of batteries, the cost of a battery charger... these are all additional costs stacked on top of an already ludicrously expensive console in the Xbox One, and these costs apply across each individual controller to boot. Compare this to how Nintendo and Sony consoles work, utilising the far more common USB charge method. With my PS3 I got a charge cable that covers around 5 foot, which is more than enough for me to comfortably play games while charging, and if a longer cable is ever needed, cables more than twice that length can be bought off various websites for about 2-3 quid. Hardly comparable scenarios at all.

Really is just down to what you prefer. Personally i prefer the battery pack as i have two on charge that can just be switched around when it gets low so i dont have to use any cables. I can understand why the rechargeable batteries idea would be a good one as they could be used for pretty much everything. Sure the PS3 controllers battery will eventually die but they can be replaced just a bit more awkward as you would have to open the entire controller.

Rechargeable batteries and charger isn't really an added expense if you had them already either, as lots of people do.
Gloria 1 year ago
They are an added expense really as if you have rechargeable batteries, I'm guessing you have them for a reason and would thus be in use.
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
And 'lose their charge'. None of my controllers have 'lost their charge' at all.So using hypothetical situations doesn't win here
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
I don't know, I bought a pack of a dozen AAs and a charger for about a tenner years ago, I've got more batteries than I need and they still hold their charge pretty well.
Gloria 1 year ago
Can't say as I've seen any evidence corroborating the "losing their charge" argument either. I still have a Sixaxis controller for PS3 that's around 6 years old now, and it still holds a charge just as well as my main Dualshock 3 controller. Can't say as I have a battery charger anymore either, as the only thing I have in my home that USES batteries anymore is my TV remote. No need for caveman technology these days.
PrometheusFan 1 year ago
They will lose the charge eventually all batteries do even the AA rechargeable batteries but it will take years and depends on how often you charge them and how low you run them before they are charged. Its science.
Zombieflamingo 1 year ago
Up until this year I was using the same 4 rechargeable battery's since I got a X360 (Whenever Fable 2 was released)
