Microsoft is reportedly working on a new Xbox controller built for accessibility

How to Gift Xbox One and Microsoft Store PC Games Digitally

At the top of the controller, you can see symbolic representations of most of the functions available on a standard Xbox One controller carved into the base. It also has two large "A" and "B" buttons, and three LED lights that might show which programmed modes are active.

Windows Central reported it was designed around accessibility, and that Microsoft had been working on just such a controller on the sly.

As of yet, there is no word on how this new controller actually works, but the leaked images provide some idea. Now, Microsoft has removed these restrictions and users can now gift all Xbox One and Microsoft Store PC games digitally. As Engadget notes, that original version of the Elite controller was a boon for many disabled gamers given that it was highly customizable, and its parts were easy to remove and replace. The Xbox accessibility controller will presumably be revealed - with mroe details - during Microsoft's E3 media briefing on 10th June.

If the leaked images turn out to be accurate, then handicapped players have something to celebrate about.

The design also suggests the controller would be for those who rely on touch more than sight, although we won't know more until Microsoft and the Xbox team announce the possible new addition to their controller portfolio. It might be useful for some people out there in the world that have hand injuries or are simply unable to play on the usual type of gaming controller. Thoughts about the accessibility controller?
