Logitech, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of accessories for popular consumer electronics, has released an accessory kit for the Xbox Adaptive Controller (XAC).
The kit, which retails for $USD100, provides a full set of buttons, variable-actuation triggers and two mounting pads which can be plugged into the XAC’s interface jacks. The price is significantly cheaper than Microsoft’s own accessories, improving the affordability of accessible gaming.
The kit continues to add value to Microsoft’s XAC which has proved popular among gamers with disabilities. As discussed last year, the XAC can be connected to external buttons, switches, joysticks and mounts, giving players with a wide range of physical disabilities the ability to customise their setups. Although the focus of the controller is for Xbox, it can also be used with a Windows 10 PC. The addition of the Logitech kit ensures that people with a variety of disabilities can actively participate in the gaming community.
