    I recall Nintendo producing a special controller for people with little to no hand mobility back in the NES days, but I agree, it's been a while

    Heh, one of my friends yesterday said "That new leaked xbox controller is for retarded or gamers who don't play well?"
    Now, knowing what this controller's purpose is he feels a bit bad

    Finding that out myself.
    I can see gaming mice to be able to attach to this thing, pretty damn neat. Hopefully Sony follows suit.

    This is really cool.
    The external switches are connected via 3.5mm jacks, they are probably standardized and allow for easy custom designs as well, so people can build specific custom switches and layouts. This is really cool.

    i guess they are like Steam Controller, but the ABXY button are in one of these...
    so these button are bigger so someone without finger can touch one of them without touching others
    Wat I wonder though is, how would they do to press X and B at the same time :S

    After the horror of the switch hacking community, it feels good to wake up reading wholesome news like this one.

    Reminds me of that nes controller where you used your chin and breath to control. It's always uplifting to see developers go out of their way to provide entertainment for everyone

    I can see this making shooting games like fortnite easier to control. Too much possibilities. Well. Aside for the noble purpose it can serve.

    Quite frankly he should feel bad for using that term in the first place, but it sounds like perspective of reality got to him first
