Anyone can game on with the Xbox Adaptive Controller

Xbox has announced one of the most inclusive controllers ever created, the Xbox Adaptive Controller. and while I hope to never need it, for those that do require its use, you could not get anything better.

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.  It was developed in partnership with organizations around the world, including The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, SpecialEffect, and Warfighter Engaged. We worked closely with them and directly with gamers who have limited mobility to assist in our development.  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.  In addition to working with common adaptive switches that gamers with limited mobility may already own, it has two large buttons built in. These buttons can also be reprogrammed to act as any of the standard controller’s button inputs via the Xbox Accessories app.
 Just a few of the many controller accessories that can be connected, to help build the right controller for the right person.


The story of how it all came together is quite interesting, so hit the link and read all about it. The controller will be on hand at E3 next month, so look for more about it there.
