Microsoft is trying to make games more accessible with its new Xbox Adaptive Controller. It allows you to connect an array of peripherals that players with limited mobility can use much easier than a standard gamepad. The device, which information was leaked earlier this week, comes with large programmable buttons housed in a rectangular casing. The body itself is designed to be placed on a table. Also, it can comfortably be placed on the player’s lap or mounted on a wheelchair. On the back panel you will find 19 3.5 mm connectors that show all the inputs you find on the standard controller, such as triggers, action buttons, joysticks and direction buttons.
The idea is to connect external switches and other peripherals in any configuration that players prefer to make their gameplay more convenient.
Microsoft also describes the configuration using RAM Mounts with the connected buttons, allowing you to use the foot to control the game process. You can also find compatible foot pedals and one-handed joysticks for use with an adaptive controller.
