We're in control.

by Syd Briscoe

Microsoft: “We All Win” - 1 min 55s

Microsoft's latest bid to improve accessibility is explored in this heartwarming film. It's a universal truth that all children enjoy video games - regardless of their physical ability to play. Now the tech giant are attempting to level the field for those with disabilities, releasing specialised controllers which allow all kids to button-mash with the best of them.

The kids are the stars here, with bags of personality and good-natured competitiveness skilfully drawn out by director Bryan Buckley. The contrast between the children's concerns and their parents' is equally striking - while the grown ups are worried about their offspring feeling different, the youngsters place winning above all else.
