After the insanity that was Preorder Day, we thought it might be a good idea to put together a list of all the Xbox Series X accessories you can preorder in Australia. Bare in mind, stock appears to fairly limited for launch so don’t be too disappointed if you miss out, and know that you won’t be the only one. That said, a preorder on any of these Xbox Series X accessories will guarantee you a unit as soon as they arrive, either in 2020 or early 2021. And, of course, they will all work on the Xbox Series S as well.
Good hunting, everyone.
Xbox Wireless Controller (Carbon Black)
Almost indistinguishable from the current Xbox One controller at first blush, the Carbon Black Xbox Wireless Controller bears a few subtle differences that set it apart.
Xbox Wireless Controller (Robot White)
The new Series S hotness. This is the same controller that will ship with the Xbox Series S. The white look is very sleek, no?
Xbox Wireless Controller (Shock Blue)
This, for our money, is the prettiest controller of the bunch. It’s a little pricier because, unlike the other two, this will be a limited run.
Seagate Xbox Series X & S 1TB Expansion Storage Card
Ok ok ok, we know what you’re thinking. “That is outrageously expensive for external storage.” And you’re right, it is very pricey indeed. But here’s why — that’s a high-speed, 1TB M2 drive in a portable case. Never heard of an M2 drive? That’s okay! M2 drives are the envy of the PC gaming world. They take the solid state drive and compress it into a small, thin card that is inserted directly into your PC’s motherboard. They pack big storage and incredible transfer speeds into a single, beautiful package and they are NOT cheap. You’re very much getting what you pay for with this one.
Xbox Wireless Controller Battery + USB-C Cable
An old favourite returns, and also confirms the new Series S and Series X controllers will still run on AA batteries out of the box. $30 saves you a lot of money in batteries down the line.
Xbox Wireless Controller + USB-C Cable
For those who just want a controller they can plug in and be done with it.
Price: $89.95 AUD
Xbox Wireless Controller + Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10
And finally, one for those who’d like a controller handy for gaming on the PC. We know, sacrelige, but not every game feels great played with the old keyboard and mouse.
Price: $109.95 AUD
Xbox Series X launches on November 10, 2020. Find out what else you’ll be playing on launch day at our Australian game release dates page!
