After earlier leaks revealed Microsoft was designing a controller to increase gamer accessibility, Microsoft has officially announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller. The Xbox Adaptive Controller is headed our way.

Update: Microsoft has confirmed the Adaptive Xbox Controller via a lengthy post on Xbox Wire.




Xbox Adaptive controller is a device targeted to the people who don't have the luxury to use their hands like normal people. "These buttons can also be reprogrammed to act as any of the standard controller's button inputs via the Xbox Accessories app". For all its precision and flexibility, mouse and keyboard isn't the most user-friendly input system, and any controller that can bring PC gaming to a wider audience is to be welcomed. "The Xbox Adaptive Controller connects to external switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks to help make gaming more accessible".

Spencer says the Adaptive Controller "has been years in the making" and is a "passion project". The company will talk more about this device at E3 which will take place in just a few weeks away.

AbleGamers have been working on their own accessible controllers for several years now, and explain in their announcement that they've "been working secretly with Microsoft" to iterate on those designs and deliver "the best controller for people with physical disabilities to date".
