To open up gaming to more people who might normally miss out, Microsoft has unveiled the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a versatile new device that can be connected to a range of different accessories to cater to different players' specific needs. We worked closely with them and directly with gamers who have limited mobility to assist in our development. You can check out the introductory view down below, which details the features and various functions of the controller and how it works. "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", Spencer said.

Spencer went on to say that Microsoft has been working on the Xbox Adaptive Controller for "years" already-and it may not be the last piece of kit that Microsoft creates with inclusivity in mind.

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.

On the back, you'll find 19 3.5mm jacks that map to all the inputs you'll find on a standard controller, like the triggers, action buttons, joysticks, and directional buttons. "The Xbox Adaptive Controller connects to external switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks to help make gaming more accessible".

At Microsoft, we believe in empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. More recommended partner devices can be found here. "We're thrilled to introduce it to the world today, tell the story behind it, and take what we have learned on our journey to inform future initiatives in inclusive design".

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

The Adaptive Controller will be exclusive to the Microsoft Store and will be priced at US$99.99.

The controller will likely be on hand during this year's Xbox Fanfest and looks to be a remarkable way to bring players into games.

It's great to see a hardware maker thinking this way about making its products more accessible to a wider audience.
