Whether it’s feeling good, looking good or a bit of both, there are plenty of accessories available to add to your gaming experience. We take a look at some of the cool gaming things that you can get your hands on at JB Hi-Fi this month.
WHAT’S UP, DOCK?
Powerwave Switch Joy Con Charging Dock for Nintendo Switch
Nintendo’s Switch rocks, but it’s a drag when you grab a spare pair of Joy-Cons and their batteries are flatter than a pancake that’s been slammed by an Acme anvil. This cool Powerwave device slides onto your original Switch dock, and is able to charge up to four Joy-Con controllers (sold separately, of course) at once, giving a handy green light once juiced up. Plus, there’s a USB passthrough so that you don’t lose any sockets to it.
CAN YOU DIGI? OH YEAH!
Bandai DigiMon X Digivice
There’s some 1990s stuff that we’d never wish to relive, but Digimon? Yes, please! Yep, the original virtual monster is back for more feeding, care, training and love, and in a selection of four wild colours, too! Faithful to the original, the Digimon X also adds more fun to the mix, including over 100 new evolutions, new abilities, new facial expressions, a new quest mode, longer playtime and compatibility with classic Digimon.
READY, HEADSET, GO!
JBL Quantum 100 Gaming Headset
It’s always good to have an affordable headset in your gaming arsenal, and when it comes from audio legends JBL then all the better! The JBL Quantum 100 headset delivers proprietary QuantumSOUND Signature, which is a fancy way of saying immersive and accurate sound. Lightweight, complete with a detachable mic – always handy – and super-comfy memory foam earpads, it comes in new choices of blue or white on top of classic black.
WE HAVE CLEARANCE, CLARENCE!
Turtle Beach VelocityOne Flight Simulation Control System
With Microsoft Flight Simulator having just hit Xbox Series X, now you can take off – and hopefully land – with a whole lot more realism than a standard controller offers. Developed by aeronautical engineers and pilots, the VelocityOne promises the most immersive, authentic and modern flying experience outside of a real flight deck, with realistic features like a 180° yoke handle, rudder controls and throttle quadrant.
BE A PYRO MANIAC!
Roccat Pyro Mechanical RGB Gaming Keyboard
We’re not sure whether “they” say that once you go mechanical there’s no going back, but we reckon it should be a thing. This latest hot offering from Roccat ticks all the boxes for quick and responsive gaming, while also being more than up to the task for clacking out that latest essay or article. It’s built to last, too, with a slick brushed aluminium top plate, and 50-million keystroke switches.
