Want an Xbox One console with no fuss? We've gathered the best console-only deals for you here. You've got 2 options: the Xbox One S or Xbox One X.
If you’re not sure which one to get or what the difference is, it basically comes down to one thing - 4K. Although the Xbox One X is more powerful in general (resulting in faster load times), its primary draw is the fact that it can display some games in hyper-sharp 4K resolution. The Xbox One S can’t, though it does support HDR and it’ll still play all the same games. However, they won’t be quite as pretty if you’re using a 4K TV.
Xbox One S deals
If you want to get in on the Xbox One magic but don't fancy spending too much, the Xbox One S is for you. It can't display at 4K, but it's a whole lot smaller and more economic than the old model. Additionally, it still plays all Xbox One games and loads of backward-compatible Xbox 360 titles to boot. You can even use Xbox Game Pass on it to get access to 100s of games for cheap.
Xbox One X deals
Frequently dubbed "the most powerful console in the world", the Xbox One X improves on the standard Xbox One console with the ability to display in 4K resolution. It has more powerful innards as well, and this speeds up load-times. You can of course play the same cracking games (Sea of Thieves and Gears of War 4, among others), but now you can also enjoy better-quality visuals if you have a 4K TV. Speaking of which, anyone looking to upgrade their TV should visit our guide on the best 4K TV for gaming money can buy.
Short of slapping on a VR headset, gaming headphones are the most effective way of fully immersing yourself in whatever you're playing. Not only will the best examples give you surround sound to help you work out where other players are, they can also enhance your single-player experience with a bassy, cinematic quality. Comfort's important too, and the top headsets are designed to be cosy for long periods of time. What's more, most come with a much better microphone than the one you'll have got for free with the standard console.
With that in mind, here are our recommendations. For more, check out our guide on the best Xbox One headsets.
1: Razer Kraken Pro V2
Affordable quality - the best Xbox One headset in 2019
Acoustic design: Closed Back | Cable length: 4.3ft / 1.3m | Drivers: 50mm | Weight: 322g | Compatibility: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Mac, Mobile
The Razer Kraken Pro V2 provides the perfect combo of rich sounds, punchy bass tones, and an affordable price. It's also blessed with extendable microphone noise-cancelling to give clear voice chat. Meanwhile, the microphone itself is fully retractable so it stays out of your way during solo play.
The headset's build quality - complete with a Bauxite aluminium frame that makes it both lightweight and durable - is equally impressive. You get the choice between oval or round ear cushions, too.
In short, the blend of comfort and sound quality mean that this is a fantastic investment for those long gaming sessions.
2: Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2
The best Xbox One headset for competitive gaming
Acoustic design: Closed Back | Cable length: 5ft / 1.5m | Drivers: 50mm | Weight: 390g | Compatibility: PC, Xbox One
There's a reason Turtle Beach comes to mind when you think of gaming headsets; they make superb products specifically for playing games, and this is one of the best. It's designed from the ground up to enhance your play in competitive titles like Fortnite or Overwatch, thanks in no small part to its ability to enhance nearby noises and give you a chance to not only hear enemies that are sneaking up on you, but also to tell you exactly where they're coming from. It's almost spooky when you first start using it.
As this would suggest, the sound quality is amazing for gaming - the Elite Pro 2 puts you right in the heart of whatever you play. Sure, the bass levels aren't quite as good as other top-end headsets, but that only makes a big difference when you try to use it for other media like movies and music. It's super comfortable too, packing soft ear cushions and a padded headband that doesn't compromise build quality. The Elite Pro 2 mixes metal and sturdy plastic to great effect, offering an Xbox One headset that's both stylish and durable. Although it's expensive, it's worth the money if you're looking for a competitive advantage.
We've all been there: you pick up a new game like Red Dead Redemption 2 , stick the disc in, and... wait, what do you mean there's no storage space left? You'll then have the tricky decision of what to get rid of to make room. Not so with an external hard drive. These beauties increase your Xbox One's storage capacity by a long way, and you don't need anything special either - a standard external HDD will do. We've gathered our top two recommendations for you below. If these options don't float your boat, make sure you visit our guide on the best Xbox One external hard drives.
1. WD 4TB My Passport Portable
The best Xbox One external hard drive - the sweet spot of space and affordability
Capacity: 4TB | Storage Type: HDD
Our pick for best Xbox One external hard drive would be the Western Digital 4TB My Passport series. While we used to recommend a 2TB drive (which is still more than large enough for most people), the 4TB version is the best way to future proof yourself when it comes to the increased size of 4K games. Indeed, the 4TB model will store up to 40 Xbox One X games (or more) and up to 100 or so regular Xbox One games. Basically, it's a monster.
We could talk about how this USB 3.0 (and USB 2.0) compatible hard drive offers 256-AES encryption, cloud storage, and WD's own backup software, but all you really need to know is that it hits the sweet spot of size, speed, and affordability. With a three-year limited warranty, there's every reason to buy with utmost confidence.
2. Toshiba 1TB Canvio Basics
Our recommended low-cost option to double your original Xbox One hard drive
Capacity: 1TB | Storage Type: HDD
Looking to store in-game video capture and maybe the odd Xbox One or Xbox One X game? The Canvio Basics is for you. It's cheap, features a speedy USB 3.0 connection, and effectively doubles your Xbox One's memory. As long as you're not expecting to store a huge amount, it will boost your capacity at a great price. It's worth remembering that you still have your internal hard drive as well, so adding a 1TB external hard drive to a 500GB Xbox One S gives you an overall capacity of 1.5GB.
After something smaller? We've listed the 1TB option here, but a 500GB option is also available.
