The launch of the new OtterBox Gaming Accessories line officially marks the company̵
OtterBox’s Gaming Accessory line is part of a partnership with Xbox, with the goal of embracing the evolution of gaming and moving it forward as it becomes more portable. As of launch, the products have been optimized for iPhones and Xbox controllers only, but OtterBox plans to add Android, PlayStation 5, and select older devices soon after. Starting January 25, you can pre-order the collection of gaming accessories and it will go on sale sometime in mid-February. Prices range from $ 30- $ 55 each.
Easy Grip Controller shell
The Easy Grip Controller Shell is a slim plastic shell that resembles a phone case, but for your game controller. It is specially designed for Xbox One or Xbox Series X or S controllers to bring you a professional level gaming experience. The shell’s rubber handles mean you don’t have to worry about your controller slipping out of your hands during a particularly intense gaming session, and it keeps your controller protected when you throw it in your bag.
The Controller Shell is made of sweat-wicking anti-microbial material that is easy to wash, and comes with two so you can easily replace them when needed. It has an open design, so you still have trouble-free access to your battery, plug and buttons. The Shell is available in three colors: Dark Web, Dreamscape, and Galactic Dream (the latter also has glow-in-the-dark grip edges), and you’ll pay $ 39.95.
Clip for mobile gaming
With the Mobile Gaming Clip you can attach your smartphone to your game controller. The clip is easy to install and remove and has an adjustable design that allows you to find a well-balanced and ergonomic position that does not interfere with the buttons on either device. It also works with the Xbox One, Series X and S and Elite controllers, even if you use the Easy Grip Controller Shell.
RapidAdjust technology lets you adjust multiple angles with one hand while gaming when you need to adjust things. It also has large extendable arms that securely hold both small and large smartphones, even with a case on it. You can also detach the clip from the controller if you prefer to place your phone on a table. And when you’re done gaming, the clip collapses flat so it doesn’t take up much storage space. The clip is available for $ 29.95.
Gaming carrying case
In between gaming sessions or if you plan to travel, you can safely store your controller in the Gaming Carry Case. It’s tailor-made for Xbox One, Series X and S, as well as Elite controllers, and can even store them with the Gaming Clip still attached (although it needs to be collapsed). It is also water resistant and can protect your controller from light mist or splashes.
Inside the case there are two storage compartments with nets that are perfect for storing cables, game clips and other easily lost accessories. There is also a cable grommet on the back of the case, allowing you to charge your controller without having to remove it from the case. And just in case you forget your gaming clip, there’s a built-in kickstand on top of the case that you can use when closed to support your smartphone while gaming. You can grab the case for $ 44.95 once it’s available.
Easy Grip gaming case
No OtterBox line would be complete without one of its eponymous phone cases! The Easy Grip Gaming Case is just like any other OtterBox case in that it offers excellent device protection with three times the military standard for drop protection. The texture on the back of the case mimics that of your controller case for a slick overall look, all while maintaining a slim profile that fits easily in your pocket.
However, the phone case interior is where it gets really interesting. OtterBox’s new CoolVergence technology integrates a thermal pad to dissipate heat from your phone while you’re gaming, preventing your phone from overheating and affecting your gameplay. It is also made of anti-microbial material and is designed to keep a little airflow between your hand and the phone while holding it. The case is currently only available in Squid Ink (black), but more color options may be available. However, the case costs $ 54.95, which is quite pricey compared to the standard cases, even when the thermal pad technology is included.
Privacy protection of gaming glass
The Gaming Glass Privacy Guard is a great way to protect not only the screen of your smartphone, but also what you watch or play. It ensures that you are the only one who can see your screen, which is a nice feature if you travel by public transport or play a competitive game with friends while sitting side by side on the couch. The Privacy Guard is ultra durable and offers shatter-resistant protection for your screen. It is also optimized for use in landscape or entertainment mode.
