Microsoft has unveiled a new Xbox and Windows 10 controller that lets people with disabilities plug in the assistive aids they already own to play games.

It has been welcomed by charities and gamers, as it allows those with limited mobility to use their own buttons, joysticks and switches to mimic a standard controller, so they can play any videogame.

This allows them to choose which assistive aid will make the character jump, run or shoot, for example, without relying on pressing specific buttons on the controller that came with the Xbox.
