Microsoft Looks Toward Accessibility With the Xbox Adaptive Controller

With the help of these ports, the user will be able to attach various devices such as large buttons, air-powered input and more. The solutions that exist today are often expensive, hard to find, or require significant technical skill to create.

At $99.99 Dollars and available exclusively through Microsoft Store, the Xbox Adaptive Controller will offer significant value over the customized alternatives that exist today.

The device is 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.

Update: Microsoft has confirmed the Adaptive Xbox Controller via a lengthy post on Xbox Wire.

'Come and take it'
She explained in one tweet that the gun is an AR-10 and it "fires at the same rate as any modern pistol", not an assault rifle. Kent State College graduate, Kaitlin Bennett , went viral for taking a parting shot at her faculty's anti-gun coverage Sunday.

Original story: An accessible Xbox One controller has allegedly been leaked.

Microsoft has just unveiled a new product called the Xbox Adaptive Controller, and as you might have gathered from the name itself, it's a device built specifically with players with disabilities in mind. That's where the Xbox Adaptive Controller comes in. These can be programmed within the Xbox Accessories app to function as any of the standard Xbox controller's inputs. The controller also supports a wide range of external inputs which can be plugged into the new controller.

Microsoft worked with two major partners to accomplish the goal of the device, Logitech's Extreme 3D Pro Joystick and Quadstick's Game Controller. "We realize that this is only one step along our journey of inclusive design and that we have more work ahead", Spencer said.

AbleGamers have been working on their own accessible controllers for several years now, and explain in their announcement that they've "been working secretly with Microsoft" to iterate on those designs and deliver "the best controller for people with physical disabilities to date".

We'll likely have to wait until E3 2018 to see if the controller is officially announced.
