Introducing the Xbox Adaptive Controller
Meet the Xbox Adaptive Controller. It’s 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.
The Xbox Adaptive Controller is an example of Microsoft’s commitment to accessibility, Inclusive Design and Microsoft’s mission statement to “empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.” For more on Microsoft’s journey with accessibility, you can have a read of the Official Microsoft Blog post from Chief Accessibility Officer Jenny Lay-Flurrie.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller will be available for USD$99.99, and we’ll be able to share an AUD price shortly.
