The Xbox Adaptive Controller (XAC) is an officially licensed controller from Microsoft Xbox. AbleGamers, along with other consultants, helped create this unique controller.
The XAC is a hub used to connect various switches that can be arranged in an infinite number of combinations and combined with the DPAD and large buttons on the top of the controller.
The XAC has nineteen 3.5mm ports on the back used to represent the different inputs on a standard controller. There are also two USB 2.0 ports for external inputs and one 3.5mm stereo headset jack for audio.
The XAC works natively with Xbox and PC, although it is possible to connect to other consoles with the use of external adapters. We don’t have the updated research to support which adapters currently work with other consoles.
The Xbox Adaptive Controller is extremely powerful and often one of our first recommendations. We have an extensive walkthrough on how to use the XAC
