MCV looks at the best new products heading to UK retail. This week, we blend in with a camouflage Xbox One headset and controller, before starting a fight on the Wii U.
Xbox One Camouflage Headset and Controller
Microsoft has released a set of products patterned with military-style camouflage.
The first product to hide in the bushes is the Xbox One Special Edition Camouflage Stereo Headset.
The headset features quick access controls, which allow users to adjust audio levels without taking their hands off the controller.
As well as standard volume adjustment, players can control the balance of game sounds and chat audio to focus on what they want to hear while playing.
The headset includes a unidirectional microphone, which aims to capture voice clearly through a full range audio spectrum – making the peripheral suitable for those looking to communicate during fast-paced online games, for example.
The Xbox One Special Edition Camouflage Wireless Controller similarly features a modern camouflage pattern and military look.
Like the standard Xbox One wireless controller, the special version of the pad boasts Impulse Triggers, which deliver fingertip vibration feedback. This allows players to feel in-game jolts and crashes in real life, for greater immersion in their games.
The controller also includes redesigned thumbsticks and D-Pad enhancements for improved precision and comfort.
RRP: 49.99 (Controller), 69.99 (Headset)

PDP Wired Fight Pad for Wii U
The Wired Fight Pad features a distinctive button layout identical to that of the original GameCube controller, with additional Wii U-specific buttons and two matching analog sticks, replacing the GameCube’s smaller C-stick.
The Wired Fight Pad is available in a variety of colours, inspired by the dress sense and iconic logos of Nintendo staple characters Mario, Princess Peach and Yoshi – predominantly red, pink and green respectively.
The Wired Fight Pad plugs directly into the Wii Remote connector port, with a wired connection providing greater responsiveness than some wireless products. This responsiveness is likely to be particularly of interest to players competing in fast-paced titles like fighting games, such as the upcoming Super Smash Bros for Wii U.
Players can use the Wired Fight Pad with Wii and Wii U games that support the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro, as well as with Nintendo Virtual Console games.
Release Date: November 7th
