  • Xbox Adaptive Controller Arrived Today

    I forgot that I pre-ordered this and it arrived today. Cost of the the controller is $99 but the switches and joysticks I'll probably have to buy are much more. What I like is that it is all "off the shelf" and I can replace pieces if needed. Most switches are made pretty rugged considering the population using them so I don't expect them to break quickly.

    Microsoft has updated their page with more info on accessories and I expect there to be more videos etc. as more and more people get their hands on this. I think this will take a lot of trial and error until I can figure what best fits my daughter's play with her help.

    Oh, almost forgot it will also work for Windows 10 machines too.

    Have you managed to set up the controller? I bought one for my son to use on his computer as well as the xbox that he is running through his computer. He has had a hard time programming it. Any suggestions?

      I've recently seen the commercial for this device. I've always joked that it's probably a good thing that I couldn't play today's video games because I'd probably never leave the house, but this is intriguing. I'm just wondering how someone like myself (C4/5 with only right arm ability to use a joystick, who uses a mouthstick) could use this device to effectively play a game like Madden.

        I haven't set it up yet because my daughter has the Xbox One at school in Tucson. She'll be coming home to Minneapolis soon after finals and she will be bringing it home to try to figure out a setup she likes. She plays games like Call of Duty, Tomb Raider, Fortnite etc. I'll for sure post any info/pics of what we come up with.

        I play Assassin's Creed and that has been a tough one for her to play with her current adaptive controller. There is a co-pilot feature on the Microsoft controller that I'm interested to try. We would basically split some of the duties between the two of us to play the same game. I think Assassin's might be a good try out of this feature.

          I am a c5/6 quad. I bought my analog sticks but made my own buttons and bite switch. I bought my analog sticks from https://warfighterengaged.org/shop/. They are nonprofit that helps wounded veterans get into gaming. They have several different accessories for the Xbox but they are kind of expensive which is the reason why I made my own buttons. Let me know if I can help with any questions. I can upload photos but I'm not sure how to.

                I bought the Xbox adaptive controller from the Microsoft website and I bought the analog joysticks from https://warfighterengaged.org/shop/.

                  Given your familiarity with the setup, do you think it would be possible to play a game like Madden with what amounts to basically one limited c4/5 quad arm that could operate a joystick, and a mouthstick that could press one button at a time?

                    I haven't played Madden so I'm not sure how many buttons are necessary. But in order to have access to more buttons you could use this https://warfighterengaged.org/shop/d...ix-coming-soon.
                    It's basically a d-pad that you operate with your mouth so that would give you up, down, left and right
                    that you could remap to have four different button presses. Let me see if Madden has a demo and I can download it and see what all is needed to play.

                        Hey I just wanted to update what we've been doing with the Microsoft Adaptive Controller (XAC). Number one, when my daughter was home from college she wanted nothing to do with it because she just wanted to play her current setup. After finals etc the last thing she wanted to do was re-create her gaming setup. Made perfect sense.

                        Fast forward to now. I have the XAC here but I don't have an Xbox One because she took it back to school. I DO have a PS4 though so I looked online for converters and of course, found one as well as a video. This morning I was able to connect the XAC to my PS4 and play with no problem. I have a couple switches in the house to plug in and they work but I don't have have any joysticks so I'll have to get one or two.

                        So this is what I'll be doing during the dangerous cold weather Minnesota. Playing the XAC with games I already have on my PS4. I have no reason to really be anywhere and am stocked up with creature needs

                          I have the Xbox adaptive controller, and when brainstorming on better ways I could control the left stick, I was wondering if it would be possible to somehow use the wheelchair controller, in a certain mode, to act as a joystick for the Xbox? The available adaptive joystick controllers can connect to the Xbox adaptive controller by USB port? I?m sure my question is far more complex, if even possible, then I am making it to be.
