  • Xbox Adaptive Controller

Xbox Adaptive controller is a device targeted to the people who don't have the luxury to use their hands like normal people.

"These inputs include PDP's One-Handed Joystick for the Xbox Adaptive Controller, Logitech's Extreme 3D Pro Joystick, and Quadstick's Game Controller". A year later, a prototype was developed for an internal Microsoft hackathon that tracked a user's movements via the Kinect. The Xbox Adaptive Controller was made to ensure gamers who may not be able to reach all bumpers and triggers or hold a controller for long period of time can be catered to. We worked closely with them and directly with gamers who have limited mobility to assist in our development.

It's great to see a hardware maker thinking this way about making its products more accessible to a wider audience. "At Microsoft, we believe in empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more", wrote Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox.

By utilizing the 3.5mm standard for accessibility peripherals the Adaptive Controller can work with a wide range of already available accessories including bite switches, single-handed joysticks and foot pedals (accessories are sold separately from the controller).

However, it's the back of the accessibility controller that's truly special. A specialized controller for those unable to play video games due to mobility issues. Like the regular controller, there is also a headphone jack so gamers trash talk friends and competitors online.

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

The Adaptive Controller "will be in what we like to call the 'presents range, '" Spohn says.

Microsoft has revealed the Xbox Adaptive Controller for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Microsoft designed the controller in a way that everyone "can create a setup that works for them in a way that is plug-and-play, extensible, and affordable".
