The XAC, which will come out later this year, is more a controller "hub" than it is a traditional controller. The base model is made for customization, making sure that it can be tailor-made for those of us who aren't completely satisfied by the standard controllers. The XAC can be attached to several types of mounts, has 19 3.5mm jacks for attachments ranging from joysticks to pedals to blowing tubes, and every button can be remapped in a way that you'll never accidentally throw a med-pack at a charging zombie ever again.
More than just a much-needed piece of hardware, the XAC sends an important message to gamers with disabilities everywhere: "We see you, we want to help you dominate Overwatch rounds." But while the controller was created with a particular group in mind, all gamers should be excited of what the XAC can mean for the future of gaming. Its endless customization possibilities is something that has been missing from gaming hardware for ages, and it being a first-party accessory means the controller might quickly find its way onto the e-sports scene. Most importantly, it's again proof that encouraging diversity in gaming is the best way to move the medium forward as a whole, and we're sure that absolutely everyone in the comments section will agree.
