Xbox Reveals 'Adaptive Pad' For Accessible Gaming

Microsoft unveils its clever new Xbox Adaptive Controller for gamers with disabilities

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".

Update: Microsoft has confirmed the Adaptive Xbox Controller via a lengthy post on Xbox Wire. The Xbox Adaptive Controller is the company's newest product for people with mobility limitations, who were struggling to get a controller that could meet their needs at a low cost.

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.

Microsoft worked with two major partners to accomplish the objective of the device, Logitech's Extreme 3D Pro Joystick and Quadstick's Game Controller. The Xbox Adaptive Controller, as it's called, will launch later this year priced at $100 US.

Microsoft has been doing loads of stuff lately to empower people who deserve extra care.

More about the controller's genesis can be found over at Microsoft's Story Labs, and the official Microsoft Store listing. "The Xbox Adaptive Controller will be launching later this year, and we'll share more information soon about pre-order availability". We can't wait to see more of it in use!
