The Xbox Adaptive Controller addresses all of these issues with the aim to reach the hands of the gamers with limited mobility. It is extensible, affordable and can be easily setup via simple plug-and-play. It supports common adaptive switches and two additional built-in buttons that can be reprogrammed as any standard controller input by using the Xbox Accessories app.

As for supporting games, Microsoft worked with third-party manufacturers to bring support for external inputs on the controller. Some of these inputs include Game Controller of Quadstick, and Extreme 3D Pro Joystick of Logitech.

The company says that pre-orders for Canada will soon be available. It is working to make the controller available in other countries as well. Priced at the US $99.99 it can be availed from Microsoft Store, Xbox.com or any local Microsoft retail store.
