The Ablegamers Foundation and Evil Controllers Release Plans to Rock
Assistive Technology Industry

Harpers Ferry, WV -June 23, 2011- The Ablegamers Foundation and Evil
Controllers have partnered together to bring a new line of videogame
controllers to the disabled gaming community. Adroit controllers will offer
greater accessibility than any special needs controller on the market today
enabling gamers with disabilities to play the video games they love at a
price they can afford.

"The problem with equipment currently available to help the disabled
community get into videogames is that it often costs way more than someone
on disability can afford," said Steve Spohn, Editor-In-Chief of
ablegamers.com. "These controllers will be higher quality with lower cost.
What's not to love?"

"Evil Controllers is on the cutting edge of controller modifications, so
working with the AbleGamers Foundation to get more people gaming was a
natural fit." says Adam Coe, CEO of Evil Controller. "I think you are going
to like what you see in the next few weeks" "Evil Controllers already builds
some of the most cutting-edge modded controllers for the Xbox 360 on the
market today. This partnership is the perfect fit. Between the two
organizations we've designed controllers to fit a wide range of disabilities
and enable gamers with disabilities on a much larger scale," said Mark
Barlet, President and Cofounder of the Ablegamers Foundation.

The Adroit controller line will include all of the fan favorite features
available on Evil Controllers mods with the focus on providing accessibility
at low cost without sacrificing quality. The first controllers should be
available in the early fall and the details on those controllers will be
released within the next few weeks. For more information please visit
