Good for them to do this. It may be a small market but gaming should be all inclusive.

and a great quote from Spencer

Quote:
I will never turn this into a Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft [competitive] thing," head of Xbox Phil Spencer said at the event. "Anybody, literally anybody who wants to learn from the work we’ve done here—or even try to do more than that with the work we’ve done here—I’m completely open to that. it doesn’t have to have an Xbox logo on it. Let's just allow more people to play.
The court seems open for the other two to follow suit. Seems like an adapter (official Brooks adapter) or even a licensing agreement to put a SONY or Nintendo logo on the thing seems a possibility which would be much less than the R&D MS as already sunk into this.

Looks like MS followed through and even made the packaging more accessible as well.

They learned hard-to-tear packaging was out, especially for portions of the testers who may use their teeth to open boxes.

“We wanted something that had multiple access points,” Weiser said. “We learned loops were an important component factor. if you have low dexterity, you can get your appendage in a loop and get leverage.”
Quote:
Loops and leverage points are all you see when you unbox the controller, which Weiser and Kevin Marshall, creative director of design, global packaging and content for Microsoft, did for Polygon on a video call. That even starts with the outer shipping container, which has a loop at the end of a strip of tape, making it easier to pull off. Those loops continue to be a theme; the piece of tape sealing the controller box has a loop at each end.

There’s a sturdy-looking piece of ribbon to open the box’s top flap, which can be grabbed with teeth or looped around your hand. There are no twist ties bundling the power cord; it’s wrapped with packaging that unfolds. Even the controller itself can be lifted out of the box gingerly with the flat of a hand or a foot, Weiser said, thanks to the large amount of negative space below it.
