Earlier this week, Sony unveiled its own version of Xbox's Adaptive controller - a device built to enable anyone to game comfortably and effectively. While we don't know all of the details on Sony's version — 'Project Leonardo' — just yet, Xbox boss Phil Spencer is already liking what he's seeing.

Microsoft's Head of Gaming has praised the device, welcoming its arrival into the PlayStation ecosystem:

Sony's upcoming device is "built to address common challenges faced by many players with limited motor control, including difficulty holding a controller for long periods, accurately pressing small clusters of buttons or triggers, or positioning thumbs and fingers optimally on a standard controller."

However, the Japanese company is yet to address how compatible its new controller will be across the industry. As Phil himself has pointed out this looks a great addition to the PlayStation ecosystem, but whether the controller will work with as many devices as Xbox's effort does, remains to be seen.

Either way, there's no doubt we all welcome Project Leonardo's announcement and upcoming release - Xbox boss included!
