Controllers and other Xbox One peripherals priced

Microsoft's priced its line of Xbox Onel peripherals, including two controller options, on its official store (opens in new tab). The standard wireless controller starts at $60, or is bundled with a Play and Charge Kit for $75.

The Play and Charge Kit, which comes with a cable and rechargeable battery pack, costs $25 on its own and charges in under four hours. The Chat Headset (which is not bundled in with the console) costs $25.

Xbox One comes with a single wireless controller and non-optional Kinect. Wireless controllers for Xbox 360 cost $50 at launch, or $40 for a wired version. Microsoft's made no mention of a wired-only Xbox One controller, probably because the wireless one already has a USB port built in.

For comparison's sake, the PS4's DualShock 4 controller will also cost $60. That's $5 more than the DualShock 3's launch price, and $10 more than the poor, rumble-less Sixaxis controller.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
