Joystick Junkies and Exspect have teamed up to bring a new range of retro-themed gaming accessories to computer game fans in time for Christmas

Taking inspiration from the classic era of 8-bit arcade titles, the pixelatted pick n’ mix has something for pretty much every gamer.

First up is a few items for Xbox 360 owners. A play and charge kit plus voice headset can be picked up for £19.99, or just the play and charge battery packs alone for £12.99. Both sets come in either “pixel” or “goblin” styles.

Nintendo DSi owners can pick up Hard Shell cases for £9.99 or a Play Case for £12.99, both in a rnage of colours and styles, with a particularly nifty Space Invaders theme up for grabs.

Notebook gamers can “cherry pick” themselves a messenger bag with the iconic old-school cherry motif on the side for £29.99.

“We had great reception for our Joystick Junkies preview products at E3 earlier this year,” said Mike Sanderson General Manager, Exspect. “We’ve streamlined the range and designs to what our customers said they wanted. Combining great quality, great designs and a great price point, we’re confident consumers will love our new Joystick Junkies range.”
