Accessibility is the driving force behind the new Xbox Adaptive Controller. The reality is that, since its very inception, video games could only be enjoyed by players who had two functioning hands. Microsoft plans to upend this paradigm with its Xbox Adaptive Controller, which is designed to be customized for gamers of all abilities. The device comes with two large buttons that can be mapped to any function through the Xbox Accessories app, as well as multiple ports that can accommodate a variety of peripherals, including foot pedals, plug switches, pressure-sensitive tubes and more. Retailing for $99.99, the Xbox Adaptive Controller will release later in the year.
