Xbox announce the Adaptive Controller, giving everyone a chance to enjoy gaming

We all love gaming, but for gamers with limited mobility, finding controller solutions to fit their individual needs has been challenging. The solutions that exist today are often expensive, hard to find, or require significant technical skill to create.

Xbox have been working with our favourite charity, SpecialEffectThe AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, and Warfighter Engaged to create the Adaptive Controller, allowing gamers to 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.

Take a look at the video below to see the amazing difference this controller will make, great job Xbox!
