Microsoft’s Xbox cloud gaming service (Project xCloud) officially launched last September, allowing you to play Xbox games on the go using an Android phone or tablet. Now, Otterbox has unveiled a new line of mobile gaming accessories aimed at keeping your phone and controller damage-free. Announced during CES 2021, the new Otterbox mobile gaming line features an Xbox controller shell, a carrying case, a mobile gaming clip, and more. As you’ll see, the new products aren’t exactly cheap, but their prices are in line with what Otterbox usually sells its cases, screen protectors, and other accessories for–you’re paying for top-notch durability here.
The following mobile accessories release in mid-February, and preorders will open on January 25.
Easy Grip Controller Shell | $40
While there are many controllers that work well for Xbox cloud gaming, the best mobile controller to use is the official Xbox wireless controller, which xCloud’s games are designed for. The new Otterbox Easy Grip Controller Shell offers durable protection for the Xbox wireless controller, protecting it against any drops or scrapes. The most appealing feature is the grip pads on the side of the shell, which help you maintain a comfortable grip while gaming.
