Logitech have developed and released a new adaptive gaming kit, dubbed the Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit, for gamers with accessibility needs. The kit is compatible with the Xbox Adaptive Controller and can be adapted in a number of different ways to help players in the most suitable way for them.
Logitech worked with Microsoft Inclusive Tech Lab and leading accessibility groups including, The AbleGamers Charity, Abilities Research Center and SpecialEffect. Working together, all groups have ensured the new Adaptive Gaming Kit will meet the needs of the community.
“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,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “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.”
“The Xbox Adaptive Controller opened up gaming to people with disabilities all around the world,” said Jenny Lay-Flurrie, chief accessibility officer at Microsoft. “With the addition of Logitech G’s Adaptive Gaming Kit, we’re excited to see that impact continue to grow. It’s never been more important to design through the lens of disability and push the boundaries of what technology can do to be inclusive of everyone around the world.”
“The goal of AbleGamers is to find a way for people with varying abilities to play video games,” said Steve Spohn, chief operations officer at AbleGamers. “Everyone’s needs are different, and the Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit delivers a wide range of configuration options to make gaming a possibility for all. We appreciated the opportunity to work closely with Logitech G on the design of this kit and look forward to continuing our partnership in the future.”
The Adaptive Gaming Kit comes with three small and three large buttons, all of which feature gaming-grade mechanical switches. The Kit also includes four light touch buttons, two variable trigger controls, configurable game mats with a hook and loop system and custom labels and velcro ties.
The Gaming Kit is available to order on the Logitech website for €99.99, but as of writing this it is currently out of stock. You can put in a back order though for when more stock becomes available. Another thing worth noting is that you will need the Xbox Adaptive Controller and an Xbox to use this Kit.
