Microsoft has worked with various charities and community groups, as well as disabled gamers, when designing to the controller to come up with the ideal design to help open up gaming to even more people.

Rumours were doing the rounds on the internet that Microsoft might come with a new kind of Xbox controller called Xbox Adaptive Controller.

Called the Xbox Adaptive Controller, the device is meant to be an easy-to-use and affordable way for gamers with limited mobility to play the games standard gamepads have so long created barriers to. You can see the controller in action in the video above, which demonstrates just how easy it is to use and how it can function with Xbox One favorites.

Cohen and Fowler also emphasized that Tuesday's rollout will be a soft launch and the service will develop over the coming weeks. In a counterintuitive move, the music app from the world's biggest video service will be largely devoid of video.

Working with the Xbox family of devices and drivers, the Xbox Adaptive Controller was engineered to help tackle the issues and remove boundaries to gaming by being scalable to the unique requirements of the players with mobility limitations. It was developed in partnership with organizations around the world, including The AbleGamers Charity, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Craig Hospital, SpecialEffect, and Warfighter Engaged.

MicrosoftXbox One controller have remained practically unchanged over the years, except for special edition designs like this one for "Sea of Thieves", for a title exclusive for the Xbox from Rare. Microsoft designed the controller in a way that everyone "can create a setup that works for them in a way that is plug-and-play, extensible, and affordable".

While it might nearly be second nature for many gamers to pick up a gamepad and flick sticks, pull triggers and press buttons as they jump around in a first person shooter, there are many gamers who need to play with limited mobility. As the name alludes, not everyone will use the Adaptive Controller the same way. The controller also supports a wide range of external inputs which can be plugged into the new controller.
