Otterbox branches out into gaming with Xbox accessories lineup

Designed specifically with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate mobile game streaming in mind

Otterbox Gaming Portfolio

Smartphone accessory maker Otterbox is expanding its product offerings with a new lineup of gaming gear.

Specifically, the ‘Otterbox Gaming’ portfolio is designed for Xbox as part of Microsoft’s cloud gaming initiatives (formerly known as ‘xCloud’). With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, gamers can stream more than one hundred titles to their Android devices, and Otterbox’s accessories are designed specifically with that in mind.

The first of these is an adjustable ‘Mobile Gaming Clip’ that can attach virtually any smartphone to your Xbox Wireless Controller and the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2. It can also connect to Otterbox’s Easy Grip Controller Shell, another new accessory that lets you add Otterbox’s signature rubberized rugged casings to your controller.

For more mobile use, Otterbox has a Gaming Carry Case which can fit your controller while converting to a stand for when you sit down to play. Alongside that, there’s an Easy Grip Gaming Case for your phone (only iPhone to start) and a ‘Gaming Glass Privacy Guard’ screen protector.

Canadian pricing for the accessories is as follows:

  • Mobile Gaming Clip — $39.95 CAD
  • Gaming Carry Case — $54.95
  • Easy Grip Controller Shell — $49.95
  • Easy Grip Gaming Case — $69.95
  • Gaming Glass Privacy Guard — $69.95

Pre-orders will go live on Otterbox’s website on January 25th. The company has confirmed to MobileSyrup that the products will be sold on Otterbox.com and the Microsoft Store in Canada.
