Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition
Rejoin your favorite sci-fi story with Gears of War 4, the latest from the best Xbox exclusive series. JD Fenix, the son of Marcus Fenix, is the hero this time around as you blast your way through blood and guts in one of the best-looking games on the Xbox One. When you’re finished with the thrilling campaign, jump into Horde mode and see what makes Gears of War 4 truly special.
Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition
At first glance, Witcher 3 looks like just another RPG; only when you begin to pull back the layers do you realize how deep the story goes. This is one of the best games ever made, and it has the awards to show. The Complete Edition comes with both expansion packs that basically triple the game’s dark, adult content. If you can 100% complete this game before next Christmas, you should probably win an award yourself.
XCOM 2 sees you as the leader of a guerrilla force tasked with rescuing humans from an invading alien race. You’ll need to plan your attacks before carrying them out in turn-based combat, and you can replay indefinitely thanks to procedurally generated levels. This is one of the best strategy games out there — you’ll have a hard time putting it down.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Every Christmas there seems to be a new Call of Duty ready to be opened — this year is no different. The latest installation, Infinite Warfare, has a new campaign, a new multiplayer mode with new maps and new weapons, and a whole new generation of kids learning how to run and gun. This is the Call of Duty to buy for any fans of the series.
Best Xbox accessories
They already have an Xbox One and a huge selection of games, but do they have the accessories needed to deliver the best experience possible? These are the best Xbox accessories you can give this Christmas.

Xbox One Play and Charge Kit
Wireless Xbox One controllers come stock with two AA batteries, but any serious gamers will experience a lack of power after only a couple of days. Instead of buying batteries in bulk, pick up this rechargeable battery pack. Just pop it in your controller and you’re good to go — plug it in with the included cable whenever juice runs low.
Western Digital My Passport External HDD
Games keep getting bigger and bigger, and the hard drive in your Xbox never seems to be big enough. Instead of buying a new Xbox or opening it up to replace the installed hard drive, just grab this external hard drive. It’s available in six colors and four different sizes: 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB. This is a great gift for established gamers who already has a large game library.
Xbox One Stereo Headset
A good headset is needed for a true Xbox Live experience, and this official set of stereo headphones from Microsoft is priced right and has what you’re looking for. The microphone lets you communicate with friends (and foes), and the over-ear, cushioned earcups won’t get uncomfortable no matter how long your gaming sessions go. Plug it into your Xbox controller and hear what you’ve been missing.
Best Xbox controllers
Xbox consoles come with a controller, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add to the arsenal. Local co-op requires two controllers, and some people might want a controller styled to their favorite game. Here are the best Xbox controllers you can give this Christmas.

(The hands-down best Xbox option is the Elite Wireless Controller, but stock on Amazon has been fleeting in these last days before Christmas, so these are some actually available options)
Xbox Wireless Controller
This is your standard Xbox Bluetooth controller that is compatible with Xbox One and Windows. It has about twice the range of previous-generation controllers and comes with a cable for use with Windows 10 devices. The grips have a textured layer for less slipping, and you can even map out your buttons how you’d like.
Don’t let the name fool you; the HORIPAD Pro is an officially licensed Microsoft wired controller that delivers a smooth experience without breaking the bank — it starts at about $40. Its design sort of resembles a PlayStation controller, so anyone who recently made the console switch will love it.
Xbox Live 12 Month Gold Membership
An Xbox just isn’t the same with Xbox Live, so why not give a year’s worth of the best online console gaming out there? Get free games every month, stream content from Netflix and Hulu, and keep up with your friends’ scores in all your favorite multiplayer games. This is a must-have for all Xbox owners.
