Xbox Gaming Without a Console
Controller gamers rejoice! Last week Xbox announced a brand-new integration with 2022 Samsung TVs that will enable us all to play our favorite games on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate without a console. Starting June 30th in 27 countries, gamers with a 2022 Samsung Smart TV and an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription will be able to simply launch the Xbox app and have instant access to hundreds of games, playable from the cloud.
Once you’re set up, all you need is a Bluetooth-enabled controller like the Xbox Wireless Controller, Elite Series 2 Controller, or the DualSense controller.
Here are some of our favorite games on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and the best KontrolFreek controller upgrades for those games:
Omni Thumbsticks are a great addition to your controller for FIFA 22 and most sports games. The low height and extra grip help you maneuver the players around the pitch without any slip.
Limited Edition Black Galaxy Thumbsticks are a natural selection for Halo Infinite. The mid-rise left stick gives you full control over Master Chief’s movement and the high-rise right stick gives you extra precision while aiming down the site of the S7 Sniper Rifle or wielding the energy sword.
MLB The Show 22
Swing smoother and with increased precision with Inferno Thumbsticks. Increasing the height of your controller’s thumbsticks gives you a huge advantage when hitting or pitching. An increased swing arc and a more consistent swing path will have you hitting dingers more than ever before.
Forza Horizon 5
Hold the road like never before with CQC Rush Thumbsticks. The unique shape of CQC Rush cradles your thumbs and keeps you gripped to the sticks no matter how hard you drive.
