Otterbox Teams up With Microsoft on New Mobile Gaming Equipment
Even extending the protection to Xbox controllers.
Otterbox, arguably one of the biggest names in phone and tablet cases, is releasing a new line of mobile gaming products with Microsoft.
Known for making rugged, protective cases for mobile devices, Otterbox has also extended its cases to Xbox One and X/S controllers. The Easy Grip Controller Shell is constructed with a hard plastic frame, which easily snaps onto the Xbox Series X/S or Xbox One controller with the ports and battery bay easily accessible through the case. The grip is equipped with a plastic grip that is meant to increase air flow, supposedly helping with the reduction of sweat. Each case includes two sets of grips where users can choose between the different number of grooves. The controller cases come in a black Dark Web, deep purple Galactic Dream and Dreamscape colorway.
Otterbox has also included a Mobile Gaming Clip to its lineup that affixes the phone onto the controller without impacting the use of the important buttons and ports. The clip also has an adjustable lever that makes changing phone angles a non-hassle. The controller, including the clip fits perfectly in Otterbox’s clamshell Gaming Carry Case. The case also has extra room to fit batteries and charging cables for on-the-go gaming.
For those who have run into overheating issues on their mobile devices, Otterbox is also offering a Easy Grip Gaming Case for iPhones, and later Android devices, meant to prevent that from happening. Additionally, users can maintain their privacy while gaming with the Gaming Glass Privacy Guard.
Product prices range from $30 to $55 USD. The Otterbox gaming gear is available for preorder at Otterbox on January 25.
