Xbox launched Adaptive controllers last year in September. These controllers were designed for people with disabilities so that they can enjoy gaming too. This gaming controller supports third gaming kits as well. Now, after a year, tech giant Logitech has also stepped in this field to help people with disabilities. Logitech launched its own Button Kit. This Button kit is an extra hand for Xbox adaptive controller.
The kit consists of large buttons and triggers which can be linked to the adaptive controller in a wide variety of configurations. The buttons plug into the Adaptive Controller’s 3.5mm jacks, the triggers plugin via USB, and all of them can then be mapped to different controller functions to play Xbox or PC games.
This new kit is the collaboration of both Microsoft and Logitech. Jenny Lay-Flurrie, chief accessibility officer at Microsoft said in a press release “The Xbox Adaptive Controller opened up gaming to people with disabilities all around the world, Everyone’s needs are different, and the Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit delivers a wide range of configuration options to make gaming a possibility for all. We appreciated the opportunity to work closely with Logitech G on the design of this kit and look forward to continuing our partnership in the future.”
The Logitech G adaptive Kit is expected to be available on LogitechG.com and through select Microsoft retail stores in November 2019 for a suggested retail price of $99.99. Xbox and Xbox gaming kit are required to use the Logitech G adaptive gaming kit.
