Microsoft's New Accessibility Controller for Xbox One Leaks Online

The first image appeared online today.

Microsoft is reportedly working on a new Xbox controller designed for accessibility. The controller is being prepped for a E3 2018 reveal, but an image of the controller leaked earlier today.

The leaked image shows two large A and B pads, a d-pad, the Xbox home button, and select buttons. The pads can be programmable and feature a three-light LED indicator. There are also multiple inputs which can connect to other devices that can be mapped with Xbox controls. This info comes by way of Windows Central.

The controller, which is codenamed Project Z, also has a headphone jack and USB port which means the controller can connect to other accessories and even be charged.

The controller's primary function is to help gamers with accessibility needs game, or even control other apps and programs. As such, the controller isn't tied to any specific game or release. We'll have to wait until the proper announcement at E3 to know the controller's full feature set.

For a full E3 schedule, check out our E3 2018 guide. Microsoft's E3 keynote will be on June 10 and USgamer will be there covering the event from the convention.
