Disabled gamers get some much needed attention as Microsoft announce the Xbox Adaptive Controller

Life unfortunately has its ups and downs, and unfortunately, gaming is one of those hobbies that tend to leave people with disabilities at a severe disadvantage with the average controller being less than able to cater to a wide range of disabilities.  Third party peripherals are usually cheap and ill designed with official options rarely ever surfacing.

Microsoft is attempting to change all that with todays’ announcement of the Xbox Adaptive Controller.  The controller allows people to game in a variety of different combinations in order to cater for all sorts of different disabilities, including gaming with one hand and one foot, one hand and their shoulder or even one foot and their chin.

This all inclusive design allows full compatibility with a myriad of third party inputs, including PDP’s One-Handed Joystick, Logitech’s Extreme 3D Pro Joystick, and Quadstick’s Game Controller.
