Microsoft officially reveals an adaptive Xbox controller which was designed in collaboration with gaming charities. This new controller is meant to be an affordable gaming solution for those with limited mobility.
Microsoft Reveals Adaptive Xbox Controller
Working with gaming charities, Microsoft have been working on this project describing it as “years in the making”. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer shared how the project came to fruition.
Our goal was to make the device as adaptable as possible, so gamers can create a setup that works for them in a way that is plug-and-play, extensible, and affordable. In addition to working with common adaptive switches that gamers with limited mobility may already own, it has two large buttons built in. These buttons can also be reprogrammed to act as any of the standard controller’s button inputs via the Xbox Accessories app.
Be sure to check out the video below which details the inspiration behind the controller:
The controller will launching later this year in the US for $99.99 and will be available exclusively through the Microsoft Store. Microsoft will be sharing more about this controller at E3 2018.
