Today Microsoft revealed a ton of new information, mostly technical specifications, about the upcoming next-gen console, the Xbox Series X. You can read more about the power and new features coming to the console in this article right here but if you’re eager to learn more about the new controller that will be coming with the Xbox Series X, here’s what you need to know.
Senior Xbox Designer, Ryan Whitaker, had a lot to say about the new controller in a Q&A with Xbox Wire and he starts off by talking about how the new controller will be more inclusive and accessible than ever before.
The team is working on improving the design of the controller to make sure that it fits a wide range of hands, especially smaller ones. Whitaker states:
“By accommodating hands similar to those of an average 8-year-old, we found we could improve accessibility and comfort for hundreds of millions more people without negatively affecting the experience for those with larger hands.”
The team is doing this by rounding the bumpers, reducing and rounding parts around the triggers, and sculpting the grips so that anyone can enjoy playing video games comfortably, whether it is on an Xbox console or PC.
