Xbox Reveals 'Adaptive Pad' For Accessible Gaming
The solutions that exist today are often expensive, hard to find, or require significant technical skill to create. This also included a large number of gamers with accessibility needs who work with and through these organisations.
The controller will be available later this year and priced at $100 United States dollars, exclusive to the Microsoft Store. 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. "Our experience in helping people with complex physical disabilities to access video games has enabled us to provide not only very relevant advice about features and design, but also direct feedback from a user-centred perspective".
The charity were one of several accessibility non-profits and special interest groups asked by Microsoft to be in involved in the planning and development phases of the controller. As suspected, it has remappable buttons and a series of 3.5mm jacks that will support a range of accessible controller options.
