We’ll look at the following accessories:

We’ll also report on the One controller repair and look at the differences, if any, between the One version controller and One X controller. 

What Is an Xbox One Console?

It seems like an odd question to answer in 2020, but there are still people who don’t know what a One gaming console is.

The One is a video game console developed by Microsoft. It is the third release in the series of consoles and followed the extremely popular 360 version.

They officially announced the version One in May of 2013, and it was the first console released in the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone in China.

The name comes from Microsoft, marketing it as an ‘all-in-one’ entertainment system. 

Microsoft usually sells the console in various bundles, and these bundles typically consist of the console, one controller, a game or two, and various One accessories. They usually design the packages for specific types of gamers.

For instance, players who enjoy Xbox One strategy games might expect accessories like the headset in their bundle.

Popular Games Played on Xbox One

Here’s a list of some of the most popular games that are available on the One console. 

  • Apex Legends – In this battle-royale shooter, squads of three players go up against nineteen other teams (57 players) to try and be the last squad or player alive, all while trying to get the most loot.
  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey  – If you know anything about modern gaming, you’ll know about Assassin’s Creed. Odyssey is the most recent iteration in the series. This version takes place in ancient Greece.
  • Battlefield 1 – This game has reinvigorated the once-popular Battlefield franchise. The game takes place during WWI, and the single-player campaign is a welcome surprise in the multiplayer era.
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) Call of Duty is arguably one of the most successful gaming franchises ever. The latest version of Modern Warfare takes the game back to its roots. It focuses on what real modern military tactics might look like.
  • Control – This action-adventure game from Remedy has taken on a difficult genre, and they’ve done it successfully. It deals with paranormal events but does so without being cheesy.
  • FIFA 20 – No list of popular Xbox One games would be complete without this masterpiece by EA. It seems the designers have genuinely listened to fans while developing this football simulator.

This list is in no way comprehensive; it is merely a representation of some of the most popular titles available on the One.

Popular Xbox One Accessories

Choosing the right accessories can enhance a player’s experience. Here’s a list of some of the most popular accessories.

Microsoft Xbox One Play and Charge Kit

This is probably the first item you should consider when looking at accessories. The Microsoft One Play and Charge Kit include an additional cable for charging as well as an extra battery for your wireless controller.

A fully charged battery should give you around 30 hours of playing time. If completely drained, the battery should take about 4 hours to charge completely.

Steelseries Arctis 9x Wireless Gaming Headset

Great audio is crucial for a truly immersive gaming experience. The Arctis 9X is a great Xbox one headset.

Xbox One Console & Controller Power Supply

The One console has what’s referred to as a power brick or an external power supply. It has positive and negative features; for instance, it’s cheaper to replace than internal power supplies, but it takes up extra space.

The One controller uses 2 AA batteries as standard. The console ships with a cable that allows you to recharge your controller without needing to quit the game.

Getting the One Play and Charge Kit eliminates the need to keep replacing batteries as it includes a rechargeable battery and charging cable. Furthermore, getting a One controller repaired can be very difficult. Microsoft only does repairs while the controller is under warranty.
