Microsoft has announced the Proteus Controller, a $299 modular video game controller designed and catered to Xbox gamers with disability. Developed by ByoWave under the ‘Designed for Xbox’ program, this controller features a collection of small, interchangeable cubes that include buttons, a directional pad, and analog sticks.

The “snap and play” parts of the wireless controller allow for over 100 configurations and LED lighting variations, enabling gamers with one hand, as well as other people with a disability, to customise their setup to suit individual needs.

Compatible with Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 and 11, the Proteus Controller will not support PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch at launch, although ByoWave is open to future collaborations. The controller is set to ship later this year, with preorders available on ByoWave’s website at a discounted price of $255.
