Xbox 360 just got hotter. Microsoft has unleashed two new accessories to accompany the gaming console, namely a Bluetooth wireless headset for the Xbox 360 and a new Xbox 360 media remote.

The wireless headset will work for your Xbox 360 as well as for your mobile phones and PCs. You can connect the headset to the Xbox 360 Xbox 360 through the console’s standard radio frequencies.

I don’t know how much people will like having one earpiece while playing. I, personally, prefer either a headset that either covers both ears or no headset at all.

But I guess, it will come in handy, especially for your phones and PCs. The headset will be available in stores in November, for $59.99.

As for the remote control, that’s something I liked better. It’s got a lot of features with which you can control both your console and your TV.

It’s got media playback controls: play/pause, skip forward, fast forward, skip back, fast back, and display to control DVD, CD, or streamed media. It packs the power on/off, volume up/down, mute and TV input (for your television).

You can use it on your Xbox by handling the A, B, X, Y buttons, D-pad navigation, back and select. If you get Live TV on your console, then that too can be controlled using this gizmo.

The remote too will hit stores in November and will cost $19.99. A release before the holidays to spice your gaming experience.
