It’s reported that Microsoft is working on a brand new Xbox controller for accessibility.
This brand new controller includes two oversizes A and B pads, a D-pad as well as the usual Xbox controller and expected navigation controllers.
It’s well documented that game controllers can be overwhelming for some people, so something first party like this is much needed to make sure that console games are inclusive for all gamers. The controller is apparently set to be revealed at E3 next month.
The leaked image (which game from Twitter user @WalkingCat) shows programmable A and B pads, with a three-light LED indicator. There’s also inputs at the top that we’ll be able to connect other devices to.
Whilst this might not be useful to most people, it’s definitely great to see Microsoft working on inclusivity for all gamers.
