Microsoft is starting to accept preorders for its new $99.99 Xbox Adaptive Controller, with orders expected to ship in September. The new Adaptive Controller is designed for people with disabilities, and has two large programmable buttons and 19 jacks that can be connected to peripherals like joysticks, buttons, and switches to make Xbox and Windows 10 games far more accessible. Microsoft first unveiled the controller last month, promising to ship it later this year.

Preorders are now live in the US and UK through Microsoft’s online store, and also in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. Microsoft says the Xbox Adaptive Controller will be available in September, despite initial preorders showing a shipping date of August 3rd.

Update, June 11th 5:30PM ET: Microsoft misspoke and initially revealed the new controller would ship in August, but the company now says orders will ship in September. The article and headline have been updated to reflect this.
