Microsoft recently unveiled the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a new controller for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs specifically designed for gamers with disabilities, and now, the device is ready for preorders in Microsoft Store for $99.99.

The controller features two large buttons that can be easily programmed using the Xbox Accessories app. In addition, the Adaptive Controller also includes 3 USB ports and 19 jacks to connect other input devices like triggers, thumbsticks, or another joystick.

Although it’s very customizable and easy to use, it isn’t a solution that will work for every person out-of-the-box. However, the ability to connect different input peripherals and the Xbox Accessories app makes the controller compatible for any gamer.

Microsoft has been working in partnership with many organizations around the world to create a controller that is adaptable as possible, extensive, easy to use, and affordable.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller is now available for preorder with a price tag of $99.99, and it’s expected to be in September 30, 2018.
