OtterBox Easy Grip Controller Shell
This special accessory is installed on the handles of the standard Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S gamepad to prevent scrapes and nicks while leaving the buttons and thumbsticks free so their sensitivity won’t be affected in any way. The special grip pads on each side can be swapped out for easy cleaning and a whole different look. The shell costs $40 and comes in three color schemes: dark gray, light gray, or purple with green piping that glows in the dark.
OtterBox hasn’t forgotten its core strength as a manufacturer of phone cases. The Easy-Grip Gaming Case costs $55 and offers an exterior that’s easy to hold, and it’s also bacteria-resistant, while the interior is designed to vent heat away from the device.
OtterBox’s products are precisely aimed at phone gamers, starting with the $30 Mobile Gaming Clip. It doesn’t look all that different from the products of other companies; however, the clip is more easily adjustable, even if people decide to use it with larger phones. It doesn’t use any kind of spring mechanics, so gamers can swap their device in and out with one hand if needed. It can also be taken off easily when you want to switch to using the controller with their computer or console instead. The clip folds flat for easy storage, even when it’s still attached to the gamepad.
These products may not be considered affordable, but neither is repairing a busted controller or phone. Pre-orders for OtterBox’s entire gaming line will start January 25 via Microsoft, GameStop, Verizon, and, of course, OtterBox’s site.
