After initial leaks, Microsoft have gone ahead and announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller. Meant to provide accessibility to all players, especially those incapable of utilizing both hands with a standard controller, the Adaptive Controller allows for connecting different switches, buttons and joysticks. The amount of customization is fairly impressive. Check out the announcement trailer below.

Retailing for $100 when it releases later this year, the controller was designed with input from AbleGamers, SpecialEffect, Craig Hospital, the Cerebral Palsy Foundation and Warfighter Engaged. As per Engadget, the controller features a USB-C port (not micro USB since that relies on orientation) and nineteen 3.5 mm ports with each representing a standard Xbox gamepad’s button.

These ports can then be used to attach an assortment of devices like large buttons, clickers, air-powered input and much more. Furthermore, they can be changed and remapped in the middle of a game. It’s a pretty stellar effort from Microsoft and hopefully companies like Sony and Nintendo will hop on board, providing accessibility to all kinds of gamers.
