Microsoft announced the launch date of its ambitious Project xCloud earlier today. The Redmond giant will launch it in 22 countries on the 15th of September. Alongside that, the company has revealed the officially licensed Xbox Mobile Gaming Accessories.
Microsoft has teamed up with Razer, 8bitDo, PowerA, and Steelseries for its official mobile gaming accessory lineup as part of its Designed for Xbox program.
Razer Kishi is a universal mobile gaming controller compatible with most Android phones. As you would expect, it has a dedicated Xbox button, along with analog thumbsticks. The controller features face and bumper buttons and D-pad for convenient controls.
The controller supports pass-through charging during gameplay and hence, you will not have to worry about running low on battery in between your gaming sessions.
With the Designed for Xbox version of the Razer Kishi, you get a 14-day free trial membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It is available in select markets via Microsoft Store and other retailers at $99.99
