We announced it in mid-May: Microsoft was committed to inclusion and accessibility with the launch of the Xbox Adaptive Controller. It is a peripheral designed for people with some type of functional disability to have access to adequate control to enter the video game market.
A bet very well received because it is not usual that this niche of users have developments designed for them to improve their day to day in the different facets. The ludic aspect does not stand out precisely because of the variety of options, so the arrival of the Xbox Adaptive Contoller is good news. A peripheral that can already be found in Spain.
The Xbox Adaptive Controller is a command that seeks to eliminate the barriers faced by players who suffer from some type of functional limitation. In the development work with Microsoft have collaborated various agencies and associations specializing in the integration of these people. This is the case of The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, SpecialEffect and Warfighter Engaged.
The Xbox Adaptive Controller can now be booked from the Microsoft Store in Spain although its buyers will not start arriving until the fall. The functions of this command are enhanced thanks to a series of external inputs to connect different peripherals and the two integrated large buttons that can be reprogrammed to act as any of the buttons found in a standard remote.
Price and availability
The Xbox Adaptive Controller can now be booked from the Microsoft Store in Spain at a price of 89.99 euros.
