Xbox Live Gift Card
Xbox Live Gift Cards are the ultimate gift choice for all passionate gamers. These cards can be redeemed at Microsoft’s online store, on Windows, as well as Xbox. Gamers are very strict when it comes to their gaming choices, so opting for a gift card instead of purchasing an actual game might be a mistake - you never know whether they will like your choice.
These gift cards never expire and they can be used to purchase movies, TV shows, video games, applications, devices, and a lot of other cool things. The only downside, though, is that you can’t redeem these cards in physical stores. Most online stores, on the other hand, will accept Xbox Live gift cards.
They are very easy and convenient to use. After purchasing a gift card, customers can choose the email address where the gift card will be delivered. Once the recipient receives the gift card, they will see a unique code. This code is used to redeem the Xbox Live gift card amount on any item or items of choice.
Since Black Friday is approaching, this can also be the perfect way to show someone that you care. And what’s better than providing your loved ones with a way to purchase their favorite Xbox Live products? Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the perfect time to surprise your family and get some jaw-dropping deals.

Alongside today’s Street Fighter VI launch, 8BitDo has announced a new Xbox-licensed arcade stick. The wireless accessory, which has moddable controls and supports swappable arcade buttons, arrives later this month.The Arcade Stick for Xbox is far from the first arcade-style joystick accessory — and it isn’t even 8BitDo’s first in that category — but if the quality of the company’s previous controllers is any indication, it could be worth a look. For starters, it’s highly customizable: You can remap its buttons (including profile support) with 8BitDo Ultimate Software or swap out the physical buttons, choosing between standard 30mm and 24mm sizes. In addition, the company says the joystick’s mounting plate is compatible with “virtually every arcade stick ever made.” 8BitDo The wireless accessory connects with a bundled 2.4G dongle adapter or wired via the included (nearly 10 ft.) USB-C cable. The accessory also has a 3.5mm audio jack for plugging in headphones. 8BitDo rates its battery life at 30 hours of playtime without headphones and 20 hours with them. Its estimated charging time is around four hours.The 8BitDo Arcade Stick is compatible with Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One and Windows 10.

Western Digital's first Xbox Series X/S storage cards start at $80
Until now, you've had to buy a Seagate card if you wanted to augment the fast internal storage of your Xbox Series X or S. Now, however, you have a slightly more affordable option. Western Digital has released a WD Black C50 expansion card line that starts at $80 for a 500GB model. That's $10 less than the recently price-cut Seagate equivalent, and easier to justify if you only need room for a few extra games. A 1TB card sells for the same $150 as its comparably-sized rival.You'll need one of these proprietary add-ons if you want to add space for ready-to-play Xbox Series X/S games, which require solid-state drive cards that are as quick as the SSD built into the console. Conventional external USB drives can only be used to archive games or play Xbox One titles. That's fine if you only have a handful of active games at a time, but you'll want an Xbox-native card if you want access to many titles at short notice.These cards are still costlier than the NVMe SSDs you can buy for a PlayStation 5. However, the price gap is now small enough that the storage format probably won't affect your choice of system. It's only an issue if you want 2TB of additional capacity. Western Digital doesn't offer a 2TB C50 card, and Seagate's $280 Xbox option is decidedly more expensive than PS5 options like Sabrent's $160 NVMe drive.
