For some reason the comments are disabled on the other video: So this controller looked REALLY stupid (i blame linustechtips) But it's nice that microfrost is trying to do something for disabled people, everyone should be able to enjoy what they like properly (mods are a huge help on the pc, stuff like this is, even some devs are starting to put helpful stuff like colorblind mode)

And now the xbox supports the use of Wii Nunchuck! This reminds me of the NES controller for disabled people, you know, the one you could control without the use of your hands.

Microsoft cares about ALL their gamers which is why Xbox is better than PlayStation

This is flat-out the best thing any game company has ever come out with four kids who have disabilities I have to say I am happy that a game company has actually made a controller for kids who have abilities like this to actually game with kids who don't have a disability to make it fair to make it honestly the same for some that don't have the capability of doing what others can do I would be happy to back something like this up and I hope as a Sony PlayStation person that PlayStation make something like this to this is an incredible controller and I think it changes so much of the gaming community making it fair for others to play at the same level as regular people do

First of all THIS IS AWESOME!! What you guys are doing. However, I am have been programming and building computers since 1985 on a commadore 64 and apple IIe. I say this because since the revolution, or commonality, of the personal computer I have been disheartened that everyone (especially the industry) thought that all computers had to look and function the same. we were locked in to these lame interface designs. You all have broken the mold for a good purpose. Bout time!!:)

This is why xbox (microsoft) is better than playstation (sony) because kids can know game without having a hard time controlling it
PokemonGuySun (2 months ago)
While I disagree that this makes the console any better in general, it is certainly nice to make something like this for disabled people. The thing is that if you aren't disabled, this will not change anything for you.

amazing. even more people can get into gaming especially people with disabilities. glad that people can either get back into gaming or start gaming. also this proves that XBOXis better than PS4. just saying.

Pete Francisco (2 months ago)
Man I thought of this years ago playing animal crossing for Wii my son controlled the thumb stick and I tell him where to go while I performed the actions with the other controller. Which may I say Wii has the hardest games to control it is not kid friendly.
DoctorSargeMD (2 months ago)
When this controller goes into full swing and people start getting used to the controllers, I wonder if they will have some sort of "special e-sports", kind of like having a special olympics, where people with limited mobility would compete.
Corsair Riker (2 months ago)
+L Vega While I completely understand your point - you could try being a little nicer about it. Sure, he definitely used the wrong terminology, but is that any reason for personal attacks? It could've simply been an honest mistake. Let's try to keep it civil, inclusive and cooperative.
Zach Darby (2 months ago)
@L Vega Thanks for agreeing
L Vega (2 months ago)
DoctorSarge MD: Ouch! Did you know that the Special Olympics is for those who are mentally challenged? Not for those with limited mobility and physical impairments. I agree with the last commenter who said it would be closer to the Paralympics, which is for those with limited mobility. Did you go to medical school in the Caribbean?
Zach Darby (2 months ago)
DoctorSargeMD Like Paralympics but digital? That’d be great.

I've been asking for this product since 1999 when I lost an arm. While it's good that it has been brought to market, don't think that this is all about MSFT being a good citizen. They did this because they see it as a way to increase revenue. I find it sickening that they pat themselves on the back for this controller and conveniently forget about the years they they ignored their disabled users requests. There's an old saying that "You can tell the character of a man by the way they treat people who mean nothing to them" and Microsoft does not even come close to meeting this bar. (P.S. I was a Microsoft employee from 1992 to 2009 so know a little bit about the internal workings at the time).
Brandon Nguyen (1 month ago)
Sean Dring I never said it wasn’t their job to make money. All I’m saying is if they’re making money and helping disabled people who’s really losing? Nothing in this world can really be done without money even non profit organizations take part of the donations they get to pay people’s salaries.
Xhulio Kondakçiu (1 month ago)
I really don't think that they made this product to earn money. On the contrary, I think the intention is only for good here. Satya has two disabled children, one which is severely disabled and one with a learning disability so the idea to make this controller might have come from him or he might have pushed it. This would explain also why it came now and not before when Microsoft had other CEOs.
Sean Dring (1 month ago)
+OwlTrue. But at least you know the truth.
Sean Dring (1 month ago)
+yugurtz MSFT was pretty profitable at the time Xbox was developed/released.
Sean Dring (1 month ago)
+tom hill Thanks. All I want is for people to know the truth. As an example - I asked for the ability to have disabled avatars - still not there (sorry - I don't have Xbox so can't check).
Bring back the exclusives!!! Satya you destroyed the xbox!!

You are awesome Microsoft. My nephew has Cerebral Palsy and has difficulty sometime managing the controller. This can make a difference. Thanks for this...and also my Bad ass XBOX 1X.

I got one too and I love it, I can now use the left trigger on the controller through the adaptive controller using the pedal that I use for like call of duty or any shooting games and Forza games I use the numchuck controller. Can’t wait to try it on other games.

Good to see a company do good for disabled people. brillent even down to the packaging
TheVoxxification (5 months ago)
Please put this up on more markets so it can be more noticeable. This should be huge news but because people can only see it through your website the only people hearing about it are people who already know about it. Parents need to see this, family and friends need to see this. not just microsoft followers. Please do not doom this to just a niche peripheral that becomes a collectors item a few years down the line. this needs to be available everywhere.

0:28 - Dude, that is literally the Wii Nunchuk there!!!! No jokes, look! lol Why did they not spruik the point that other brand peripherals such as that Nintendo Wii Nunchuk would work with this setup!!!???
Todd L-M (5 months ago)
Defensive Wounds well, they can’t just copy Nintendo and a nunchuck controller would have required more force to press the buttons and move the joystick
