Last year, the SteelSeries Arctis 5 won our battle to crown the best gaming headset under $US100 ($142), so when I heard SteelSeries was working on a new wireless headset made specifically for the Xbox, naturally I was intrigued.
Often, the most exciting thing about new gaming hardware is how many RGB lights have been crammed into it. So instead of trying to fuel our inevitable rainbow-coloured dystopian future, SteelSeries looked for a different way to enhance its Rival 600 mouse.
SteelSeries’ original Stratus — a compact game controller designed to complement pocket-friendly iOS devices like the iPhone — was revealed just a few months ago at CES. But the company is already rolling out an updated version that will appeal to anyone who felt cramped using the tiny original.
