Xbox One controller and headset available to pre-order

Last Updated: July 29, 2013


Xbox One controllers and wired headsets are now available to pre-order from the Microsoft Store and also Amazon. Interestingly, the release date for the controller on Amazon is November 27 (this part in particular discussed further below).

Check everything out (and order if you really want) at the Microsoft Store. The Xbox One wireless controller will set you back $59.99, while the controller combined with the plug & play charge kit is an extra $15 at $74.99 ($10 cheaper than buying the items separately). The headset is $24.99.

Given that there is no headset included in the Xbox One console bundle, picking one up is likely to be a must for anyone serious about playing online. Also, what’s the point of purchasing a brand new, latest generation Xbox One and not being able to show it off to your mates (or rather play it with them)? So you might wanna think seriously about grabbing an extra controller now too…

As for the November 27 release date for the Xbox One controller on Amazon, the Microsoft Store lists the controller for release on December 31 and Amazon itself has a December 31 release date (still) for the Xbox One console. So we’re not really seeing this as a potential leak of the Xbox One release date. Then again, you never know…
