Leaked earlier in the week, today Microsoft formally announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a controller created to empower gamers with specific mobility and control needs to play as well as anyone else. 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", Spencer said.
Xbox Adaptive controller is a device targeted to the people who don't have the luxury to use their hands like normal people.
Mastering the various buttons, thumbsticks, triggers and touchpads of video game controllers is hard enough, but it can be near impossible for people with limited mobility and forms of disability.
The core of the Xbox Adaptive Controller is a flat slab of a device, complete with two large buttons created to be much easier to access, as well as a d-pad and other smaller buttons. "These buttons can also be reprogrammed to act as any of the standard controller's button inputs via the Xbox Accessories app". The Adaptive Controller has 19 inputs on the back of the device in total, as well as three inserts so users can mount it on a desk, wheelchair or lapboard. More recommended partner devices can be found here. You can also find compatible foot pedals and one-handed joysticks to use with the Adaptive Controller.
To develop the Xbox Adaptive Controller, Microsoft consulted and worked with organizations such as the AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, Special Effect and Warfighter Engaged, as well as gamers with limited mobility. "On our journey of inclusive design, we have taken a wider view of our fans and a more inclusive approach to designing for them". It'll only be available through the Microsoft Store and retails for $US99, with no Australian pricing available at the time of writing.
Microsoft has been doing loads of stuff lately to empower people who deserve extra care. The controller will be available later this year and priced at $100 Dollars, exclusive to the Microsoft Store.
