Leaked Xbox One Controller Shows off Accessibility Features


The Xbox One is about 5 years old, but Microsoft is still updating the console in serious ways. A leaked Xbox One controller suggests that the company is serious about investing in accessibility and catering to the needs of gamers with disabilities.

Earlier this month, Microsoft announced that it will invest $25 million towards their AI for Accessibility project. This sleek, minimalist looking controller could be a part of that initiative.

According to Windows Central, the leaked controller has grooves over the functions, something that will be a big help for visually-impaired users. The oversized A and B pads also seem to be tied to three LED lights which could indicate which pre-programmed mode is active.

While the leak is yet unconfirmed, we could be getting confirmation soon enough. E3 Expo is on June 10th and is arguably the biggest gaming event of the year, so Microsoft could show off this new Xbox controller there.
