Microsoft Officially Announces Adaptive Controller

Well, after all the speculation and leaks, the team at Redmond finally announces, and shows off, the new adaptive controller that allows people who have physical limitations to enjoy video gaming.  The controller adaptss to so many people’s disabilities, and allows them to set it up in a way that they can play games and enjoy them.

It is a first-of-its-kind device as an affordable, easy-to-set-up, and readily available Xbox Wireless Controller designed for gamers with limited mobility.

Forged with user research through new partnerships (including The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, SpecialEffect, Warfighter Engaged, Craig Hospital, and many community members) that aim to make gaming more accessible, this new controller benefits gamers with limited mobility who may experience difficulty gaming with traditional controllers.

We here at Xbox Addict are so happy to see something like this come to life and we are excited to see the ’fruits of the labor’ as so many new people who couldn’t game before can now have a chance to game.
