Xbox One avatars getting wheelchairs for disabled gamers

In a new option for gamers with disabilities, Xbox Live will be adding wheelchairs for its avatars. 

Xbox boss Phil Spencer jumped into a conversation between two twitter users discussing starting a petition about adding wheelchairs to say “No petition needed, we hear you. This is something that we've already looked at, not far off”.

That was quickly followed by Xbox’s Mike Ybarra following up with a “sneak peek,” which is more of a full reveal than a tease: 

It’s a great inclusion for a not insignificant section of the human population and clearly something Microsoft are aware of and been thinking about. More of this please. 

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
