The controller will be available later this year and priced at $100 Dollars, exclusive to the Microsoft Store.

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. In a recent video unloaded by Microsoft, they provide numerous uses for the controller and how to give gamers the chance to get back into gaming.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller was made in collaboration with several organisations including The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, SpecialEffect, and Warfighter Engaged.

Beyond supporting a wide range of devices, the Adaptive Controller is created to be reconfigured at a moment's notice - that way, it can be used by people with different kinds of disabilities and specific needs, and they can experiment with various configurations to find what works best for them, and for different games.

It was not clear if the new firm was related to the anticipated Shanghai plant. Tesla's aspirations to build a factory in China has been well-known.

Original story: An accessible Xbox One controller has allegedly been leaked. Two large buttons can easily be reprogrammed through the Accessories app to function as any of the standard Xbox buttons. As suspected, it has remappable buttons and a series of 3.5mm jacks that will support a range of accessible controller options.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller - or XAC - will cost $99. These inputs include PDP's One-Handed Joystick for the Xbox Adaptive Controller, Logitech's Extreme 3D Pro Joystick, and Quadstick's Game Controller.

Microsoft has been doing loads of stuff lately to empower people who deserve extra care. "The Xbox Adaptive Controller will be launching later this year, and we'll share more information soon about pre-order availability".

We'll likely have to wait until E3 2018 to see if the controller is officially announced.
