Xbox have announced their groundbreaking new controller which eliminates barriers to those with limited mobility who wish to play video games. Make sure you check out today's feature on Microsoft Story Labs and hear directly from Microsoft Chief Accessibility Officer Jenny Lay-Flurrie in her blog today to commemorate Global Accessibility Awareness Day.

And the 3.5mm jacks - a standard used because it's compatible with the vast array of discrete switches and inputs many disabled gamers already own - have been given little troughs directly above each port to help guide wired plugs held by less nimble fingers into their respective holes. Another nice touch is that the back of the controller accepts a few different mounts. And it enables people to do the exact same things that every other player is doing.
