Be sure that you pick up one or more of the best Xbox One accessories to complete your gaming and entertainment experience. With them, you might appreciate all the features your new Xbox One, Xbox One S or Xbox One X offers more than you already do.
You need the best Xbox One accessories because Xbox consoles don’t come with everything that you need. The free trial of Xbox Live Gold only lasts for two weeks. After it expires, you lose access to online multiplayer, cloud storage for your Xbox One video clips and discounts that people who don’t have an Xbox Live Gold account can’t get. Xbox Game Pass, the video game rental service that Microsoft includes a code for in new bundles, only lasts for a month. After that, you lose access to any of its games.
Any best Xbox One accessories list has more than just subscriptions too. Microsoft includes a single Xbox One Controller with every console. If there’s more than just one gamer in your house, you need a second controller. There are media remotes that make watching Netflix convenient for the entire family, and an Xbox Live ChatPad that makes longer Xbox Live text messages easier to type.
Here are the 14 best Xbox One accessories you need to complete your gaming experience.

The Kinect sensor isn't as big a focus for Xbox as it was at the console’s launch. That being said, it’s still a very useful Xbox One accessory.
With a Kinect sensor, you can navigate your console with a voice command. You can also ask Microsoft’s Cortana personal assistant to send messages, set reminders and record clips of your games. On top of these things, it’s still a great way to video chat with people over Skype thanks to a high-definition video camera that automatically zooms in and out as you move around your living room.
A Kinect for Xbox One sensor costs $89.99 at Amazon. If you have an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, be sure to also purchase the Kinect for Windows Adapter. These consoles don’t have a built-in port for Kinect.
