It’s been well documented at this point that the new Xbox Adaptive Controller is a big deal in terms of making sure that each and every gamers can play games to their full potential.
This deal is a massive passion project for Microsoft, even to the point that every little bit of packaging has been carefully crafted to ensure that almost anybody can open it. Reading through the massive 1000+ word blog post that Microsoft put out this morning, all about the packaging, made me realise just how clever it is.
The packaging has physical touch-points, visual queues and structural elements that have been incorporated to make sure that every gamer can open packaging, even to the point that someone with limited mobility could use their teeth to rip open the packaging. Whilst it might seem silly to the average gamer, it’s a massive deal for those with limited mobility.
