    Microsoft has announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller, an Xbox controller designed for people with disabilities. The device was leaked earlier this week. It has two large programmable buttons and 19 jacks that can be connected to a range of joysticks, buttons, and switches to make it easier for a wider range of people to play games on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

    This would've been amazing to have seen a few months back when I was helping my wife piece together a gaming set-up package for one of her patient/clients, this stuff is so damned pricey and convoluted.

    I have a cousin that has cerebral palsy. This is AMAZING! He loves video games but can only play an extremely small selection of them because of his disability. This will really open up what he can do.

    Thanks to MS and the team who put this together. You're going to make a lot of people happy.
