In many ways, video games are a more accessible form of play than traditional sports, as raw physical ability is substituted for more universal digital problem-solving skills and quick reflexes, and the new Xbox Adaptive Controller is a tool that will make gaming even more readily available to people who may have struggled in the past. The controller is explicitly designed for people with limited fine motor skills, with a near infinitely configurable interface that can be perfected for the needs of any player.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller is outfitted with two adaptable buttons; a D-pad; Xbox, View, Menu, and Profile buttons; and USB jacks and a headphone jack along the sides. Those USB ports are designed to connect with left or right thumbsticks, giving players the ability to personalize their controller to their needs.
