Microsoft announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller for disabled players a few months back. It helps people with disabilities to play games on their Xbox. The company called it the most flexible adaptive controller made by a major gaming company and started taking pre-orders for it in June. Well, now it has announced that the Xbox Adaptive Controller is available for purchase.
This controller features two large programmable buttons as well as 19 jacks through which many buttons, joysticks, and switches can be connected to allow differently abled players to play games on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. So it is very versatile for a wide range of people.
The high level of flexibility through which many peripherals can be used in concert with system-level button remapping will help people with disabilities to enjoy playing games. Some people will be able to enjoy games for the first time using this controller. It will be interesting to hear what they think of this controller after using it to play games.
Peripherals from Microsoft’s hardware partners like Logitech, RAM, and PDP can be used to customize the controller. The Xbox Adaptive Controller is available starting today at Microsoft Stores and GameStop online for only $99.
