Microsoft unveils its clever new Xbox Adaptive Controller for gamers with disabilities

Called the Xbox Adaptive Controller, the new $99.99 device is unlike the regular Xbox One remotes designed for two-handed use.

The core of the Xbox Adaptive Controller is a flat slab of a device, complete with two large buttons created to be much easier to access, as well as a d-pad and other smaller buttons.

Gamers' charity SpecialEffect are proud to confirm their involvement in the design and testing of Microsoft's Xbox Adaptive Controller, a customisable Xbox Wireless Controller designed primarily for gamers with limited mobility.

Limited mobility gamers are an underserved segment of the video game-playing populace.

The new controller was supposedly developed in consultation with a range of charities and not-for-profit organisations, including AbleGamers and the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, and is created to support a variety of plugs and common inputs for accessibility. "The fact that they are able to mass produce this device and make it very affordable for the average gamer is just fantastic". "Microsoft have a competitively-priced product here that has massive potential to help many more people globally to enjoy the magic of video games". In this sense, the adaptive controller is both a controller and a switch.
