The Xbox Adaptive Controller is the result of several years work and Microsoft worked with a range of organisations including The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, SpecialEffect, Warfighter Engaged and Craig Hospital to create it.

At Microsoft, we believe in empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. The idea is connect external switches and other peripherals in any configuration that players prefer, to make their gaming experience more comfortable.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller works with the Xbox One console, as well as PCs running Windows 10. As suspected, it has remappable buttons and a series of 3.5mm jacks that will support a range of accessible controller options.

Earlier this week, a brand new Xbox controller design hit the headlines with many suspecting it to be built around accessibility for the differently abled.

The new controller was supposedly developed in consultation with a range of charities and not-for-profit organisations, including AbleGamers and the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, and is created to support a variety of plugs and common inputs for accessibility.

According to Microsoft's Xbox team, besides implementing regular adaptive buttons, the new Xbox Adaptive Controller has two main big built-in buttons which can be reset to function as any of the default controller buttons via the Xbox Accessories utility. You can also find compatible foot pedals and one-handed joysticks to use with the Adaptive Controller. No release date for the Xbox Adaptive Controller has been announced yet but it will sport a $99.99 price tag (around Rs. 6,800) and be available exclusively via the Microsoft Store in the US.

Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox Adaptive Controller will be launching later this year. This has been a passion project for people around the world, both inside Microsoft and beyond. "Microsoft have a product here that has the potential to help many people globally to enjoy the magic of video games". The company will talk more about this device at E3 which will take place in just a few weeks away.
