The Xbox One Elite controller, although marketed as a premium option for serious gamers, has opened up a myriad of options for those with disabilities thanks to its wealth of programmable buttons and control schemes.

According to a report from Windows Central, Microsoft will continue to bet on the inclusion and the accessibility in the world of video games. Now, Microsoft has removed these restrictions and users can now gift all Xbox One and Microsoft Store PC games digitally.

Along with your chosen game, all those bundles include a digital copy of snowboarding game Steep, open-world racing game The Crew, plus your choice of either Gears of Wars 4 or National Basketball Association 2K18, and depending on the bundle, potentially some additional expansion packs or an extra game too. More details about this new Xbox One controller should be announced by Microsoft very soon.

What will you be gifting? Once you purchase it as a gift you can then send the gift to someone and they will receive a notice that the gift has been added to their item inventory.

First, go to the store page for the game that you're interested in. The gift will be sent as a code, which can be redeemed by clicking a button.

Sending someone a game gift can be done using Windows 10, any Xbox One, or in a web browser. There are no limits for gift purchases made at full price. For instance, you can't buy and gift more than two discounted products and a total of 10 discount products within 14 days. You can check the leaked image of the controller at the top of this news.
