Microsoft Announced New Xbox Adaptive Controller, Brings Accessibility For Gamers

Xbox Adaptive Controller

The controller features a USB-C port along with nineteen 3.5 mm ports which basically represent Xbox gamepad's button.

Rumours were doing the rounds on the internet that Microsoft might come with a new kind of Xbox controller called Xbox Adaptive Controller.

Clearing all our doubts, Microsoft today on their Xbox blog explains little detail about its functionality and who are its target audiences.

After earlier leaks revealed Microsoft was designing a controller to increase gamer accessibility, Microsoft has officially announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller. A year later, a prototype was developed for an internal Microsoft hackathon that tracked a user's movements via the Kinect.

"Joining the Xbox family of controllers and devices, the Xbox Adaptive Controller was created to address these challenges and remove barriers to gaming by being adaptable to more gamers' needs".

"In the USA we estimate that 14% of Xbox One gamers have a temporary mobility limitation and that 8% of gamers have a permanent mobility limitation", Navin Kumar, director of product marketing for Xbox accessories. We can't wait to see more of it in use!

At Microsoft, we believe in empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

In addition to working with common adaptive switches that gamers with limited mobility may already have, there are two large buttons built in. Each slot on the back is labeled for its corresponding traditional button, making setting up the controller as simple as "plug and play". You can see the controller in action in the video above, which demonstrates just how easy it is to use and how it can function with Xbox One favorites.

Microsoft designed the controller in collaboration with The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, SpecialEffect, and Warfighter Engaged. It will be available for US$99.99 later this year, and Microsoft says it will share more information at E3 in a few weeks. A specialized controller for those unable to play video games due to mobility issues. We couldn't be prouder to have their support in introducing the Xbox Adaptive Controller.
