Microsoft introduces Xbox Adaptive Controller

Provides an accessible new way for more fans to enjoy gaming

Posted on

Microsoft has announced plans to release a new Xbox Adaptive Controller.

Designed for gamers who might not be able to reach all the bumpers and triggers or hold a controller for an extended period of time, the new controller provides a way for more fans to enjoy gaming. It was developed in partnership with organizations around the world, including The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, SpecialEffect, and Warfighter Engaged.

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.

Microsoft also worked with third-party manufacturers to support external inputs which can be plugged in to the new controller. These inputs include PDP’s One-Handed Joystick for the Xbox Adaptive Controller, Logitech’s Extreme 3D Pro Joystick, and Quadstick’s Game Controller.

At $99.99 USD and available exclusively through Microsoft Store, the Xbox Adaptive Controller hopes to provide good value over the customized alternatives that exist today. Complete details can be found at the Xbox News Wire.
