Xbox Adaptative Controller official, designed for gamers with limited mobility

He concluded, "At $99.99 Dollars and available exclusively through Microsoft Store, the Xbox Adaptive Controller will offer significant value over the customized alternatives that exist today". In addition to working with common adaptive switches that gamers with limited mobility may already own, it has two large buttons built in.

While this design is one that looks to cater to accessibility, the Xbox Elite Controller, also known by the codename "Spider" according to sources, will also offer a few improvements on the standard Xbox One controller.

Spencer continued, "The Xbox Adaptive Controller has been years in the making, though we realize that this is only one step along our journey of inclusive design and that we have more work ahead".

"Microsoft's new Xbox Adaptive Controller will make a real difference to disabled people, particularly those with a muscle-wasting condition whose movements will become increasingly limited over time".

The Xbox Adaptive Controller has been developed through partnerships with charities such as The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, SpecialEffect, Warfighter Engaged and Craig Hospital.

Tesla expected to halt production for six days
Tesla said it was "deeply saddened" by the accident and was working with local authorities to establish the cause. Tesla faces a slew of other issues, from increased skepticism over its finances to safety probes by regulators.

Leaked earlier in the week, today Microsoft formally announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a controller created to empower gamers with specific mobility and control needs to play as well as anyone else. The Xbox Adaptive Controller is headed our way. These will be sold separately, and we imagine more details will be unveiled at E3 2018.

"This has been a milestone collaboration for us", said SpecialEffect Founder and CEO Dr Mick Donegan. "Microsoft has a product here that has the potential to help many people globally to enjoy the magic of video games". We couldn't be prouder to have their support in introducing the Xbox Adaptive Controller. United Kingdom pricing hasn't been confirmed.

The controller itself is created to be simple, based around a rectangular frame and featuring two large circular buttons on its visage. So far, Microsoft has not unveiled when it will go on sale or how much it will cost in the United Kingdom - it has been priced at $99 in the US.

Microsoft prepared a big story about the vision behind designing the controller, and how feedback from players with different disabilities shaped the design.
