Today, Logitech announced the Adaptive Gaming Kit that includes a number of buttons and triggers for the Xbox Adaptive Controller. It’s designed so that gamers with mobility issues don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars getting buttons for Microsoft’s controller.
According to the press release Windows Central received, the Adaptive Gaming Kit lets “gamers play the way that’s most suitable for them by providing a set of controls that are easily configured to a wide variety of use cases. It features a large assortment of buttons and triggers with gaming-grade components for performance and durability, manufactured to the highest standard, at a price point that is far more accessible than what is on the market today.”
Ujesh Desai, the Vice President and General Manager of Logitech Gaming, said the following about the product.
The Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit is designed to be the perfect companion to the Xbox Adaptive Controller, giving gamers the necessary tools they need at a more affordable price point. It also supports our commitment to inclusivity and diversity in gaming, because fundamentally we believe that life is more fun when you play, and everyone should be able to experience the joys of play.
