Microsoft Rumored To Work On A New Xbox One Controller

Microsoft Store Users Can Now Send PC Games as Digital Gifts

It would seem that a new accessibility-minded controller for the Xbox One has leaked. Similarly, the controller has two circular buttons which are similar to the touchpad found on the present generation touchpad, which is expected to replace the joysticks found on the standard gaming controllers.

Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference is taking place on June 10 and it seems likely this piece of hardware would be on show if it's the real deal. On Xbox One, gift recipients will receive a system message with a clickable redemption button.

Other features include a headphone jack and a USB port to allow users to program the controller for specific accessibility needs for specific video games.

Head over to the Microsoft Store on Windows 10, your Xbox One, or online, navigate to the product that you would like to purchase, select Buy as Gift, and enter the email address of the gift recipient.

The new edition will feature sets of Legendary, Epic and Origin skins, amounting to 15 skins in total, thrown in with purchase. The event promises more than 50 new items, including 8 Legendary skins and 3 Epic skins that can be found in loot boxes.

This isn't the first time Microsoft would have designed a controller that works well for gamers with physical limitations.

Coming to the aesthetics of the new gaming controller, it features a completely revamped design with a different set of button placements.

If you have a friend or family member's birthday approaching soon and want to give them a game as a gift, you now have one more digital avenue to do so with.

The new controller might look amusing to most gamers, but this one is being designed for accessibility purposes. If this leak proves true, the accessibility-minded controller option could open up Xbox One games to an even wider audience.
