+ - Ben Heck's plan to making gaming open to all->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Legendary DIY gaming guru Ben Heck has given a new interview in which he talks about the Access Controller, his modular controller for consoles that lets disabled gamers play with one hand, and how he plans to update it for the next generation of consoles: "I'm sure I will. At the very least people are going to want the accessibility controllers I build...People have already asked about them for the next-gen consoles, and that was at E3. When I was there, the thing I looked at the most was the controllers. The Xbox One looks pretty similar to what we have at the moment, but they finally fixed the D-pad."

Heck's not a huge fan of the new Xbox One console, and wasn't impressed with Microsoft's controversial used-disc policy, which it has now abandoned. "I think it was probably a game of chicken with two cars driving at each other, who's going to blink first? Microsoft probably assumed Sony was going to have a similar DRM [digital rights management], and I thought they were going to as well. And Sony didn't blink," he says. "The Xbox One has a lot of issues, but they should have predicted that. You don't have to be frickin' Nostradamus to predict the public would react like that.""
