Well, according to a report from GameSpot, Microsoft is now taking action and is notifying some gamers about the information the company shares with publishers on Xbox. The controller, internally known as Project Z, also includes a USB input on its side, along with what looks to be a headphone jack. It's expected Microsoft would have announced the new controller at E3, but it's possible an official reveal could be coming soon thanks to this leak.

Microsoft has increasingly been giving consideration to players who might need more accessibility features, and this controller serves as the latest example of its commitment to making sure gaming remains an inclusive pastime.
Gaming is a great pastime, but there's no getting around the fact that most games require precise motor control which can present many difficulties for those not typically abled. Microsoft's E3 keynote is set for June 10th this year. Thoughts about the accessibility controller? You can't gift Xbox 360 and Xbox original games, pre-orders, os associated content, and gifts can only be redeemed in the same region or country they were purchased in.
