Mini Controller

8BitDo has made some pretty cool accessories over the years. Its retro NES controller is arguably the best-known among them. It also serves as the basis for the company’s xCloud controller.

Versatile Gear

For those looking forward to gaming away from home, Microsoft’s xCloud streaming service will be a welcome addition. Right now, it is being offered as part of an invite-only preview program to select users. Microsoft continues to smooth out the kinks as it works towards what it hopes will be a much cleaner launch than Google’s Stadia platform.
