New Xbox Adaptive Controller Announced

New Xbox Adaptive Controller Announced

There are also a number of third-party peripheral manufacturers whose accessibility devices have been made compatible; PDP's One-Handed Joystick for the Xbox Adaptive Controller, Logitech's Extreme 3D Pro Joystick, and Quadstick's Game Controller were all specifically mentioned but Xbox says there are more partner devices. The company didn't confirm anything at the time of its appearance; but now it's official. As the name alludes, not everyone will use the Adaptive Controller the same way.

To develop the Xbox Adaptive Controller, Microsoft consulted and worked with organizations such as the AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, Special Effect and Warfighter Engaged, as well as gamers with limited mobility.

The controller has two big buttons built in that can be reprogrammed to work as any of the inputs on a standard controller using the Xbox Accessories app. "The fact that they are able to mass produce this device and make it very affordable for the average gamer is just incredible".

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

The Xbox Adaptive Controller works with the Xbox One console, as well as PCs running Windows 10. We couldn't be prouder to have their support in introducing the Xbox Adaptive Controller. "On our journey of inclusive design, we have taken a wider view of our fans and a more inclusive approach to designing for them". We were wondering why is this even an important device as Microsoft already has Xbox controller.

Microsoft has been doing loads of stuff lately to empower people who deserve extra care.

Original story: An accessible Xbox One controller has allegedly been leaked. No release date for the Xbox Adaptive Controller has been announced yet but it will sport a $99.99 price tag (around Rs. 6,800) and be available exclusively via the Microsoft Store in the US.

We'll report back more on the controller as more is known.

Disabled gamers sadly can not play video games sometimes since some of them aren't able to use their hands properly.

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