Top gaming accessories this holiday season
Having the right accessories can make a world of difference when you’re gaming. But how do know which accessories are right for you? A good place to start is customer testimonials—they provide valuable feedback from customers who own the product. Reading customer reviews will give you a better idea of what to expect and can lead to better purchasing decisions. With that in mind, let’s look at some top-rated video game accessories as reviewed by Best Buy customers from across Canada.
1. Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
I’ve used a lot of game controllers over the years but few can rival the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. This professionally built controller is the perfect accessory to take your Switch gaming to the next level. It features a sturdy, comfortable build with excellent grips and responsive buttons. For games like Zelda BOTW, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Pro Controller can dramatically improve your game.

2. Seagate external hard drive for Xbox
The file sizes of video games are getting larger year after year. To avoid the hassle of constantly deleting and re-downloading your games, an external hard drive is a must. For Xbox fans, the 2TB Seagate external hard drive for Xbox is a fantastic choice. It’s designed to easily connect to your Xbox One or Xbox 360 console and instantly increase your storage capacity. You can also store your movies and music right on the drive. For those who want to dramatically increase their storage, a huge 4TB model is also available.

3. PlayStation VR
PlayStation VR is the market leader when it comes to offering the biggest and best VR experiences. While I included PS VR in this accessories list, it’s virtually a whole new gaming platform. Getting a PS VR headset will expand your possibilities with entirely new games developed specifically for virtual reality. Take on demons in Doom VFR, fly through outer space in EVE: Valkyrie, or become the Bat in Batman: Arkham VR—all in immersive 360-degree VR. For racing fans, a PlayStation VR Gran Turismo Sport Bundle is also available.

4. PDP Starter Kit for Nintendo Switch
Nintendo Switch doubles as a home console and a portable gaming system. When on-the-go it’s important to protect your device with starter kit, like PDP’s Starter Kit for Nintendo Switch. It comes with a protective carrying case that can hold up 14 games. It also has a screen protector to prevent scratching and a cleaning cloth to keep your machine in top shape. And finally, it includes earbuds for listening in privacy, Joy-Con guards, and thumb caps that add extra grip.

5. Xbox One Play & Charge Kit
To keep yourself in the game, it’s important your batteries remained powered up. The Xbox One Play & Charge Kit does just that by giving you a long-lasting rechargeable battery. If your controller power gets low, simply use the included USB charging cord to continue your game. When your gaming is through, a 4-hour charge will completely refill the battery for your next gaming session.
