Microsoft, in collaboration with ByoWave, has officially announced the launch of the Proteus Controller. Designed specifically for gamers with disabilities, Proteus is a unique modular controller that offers unparalleled customization to cater to individual needs and preferences.

At the core of Proteus is its innovative “snap and play” system. Users can easily connect various cube-like modules, each housing different control functions, to create a controller layout that works best for them. With over 100 possible configurations and LED variations, Proteus offers an unmatched level of personalization. Gamers can experiment with different setups to find what suits their specific requirements.

Proteus is part of Microsoft’s “Designed for Xbox” program, ensuring quality and compatibility with Xbox consoles. While primarily designed for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Windows 10/11, Proteus is also compatible with other platforms, further expanding its accessibility.

By enabling users to build a controller tailored to their specific needs, it empowers them to overcome physical limitations and enjoy games they might not have been able to play otherwise. ByoWave’s website is presently open for pre-orders of the Proteus Controller, available at a promotional price of $255. Each purchase includes a USB-C charging cable and a Bluetooth dongle in the package.

Microsoft has also shared news regarding enhancements to the existing Xbox Adaptive Controller, which was launched in 2018 to facilitate the creation of adaptable gaming configurations. The tech giant disclosed that an upcoming software update will expand compatibility, enabling each USB port to support a broader range of accessories, including up to 12 buttons, a hat switch, and an additional switch.
