Back in June, we reported that Microsoft was working hard to bring Gaming for Everyone and an “inclusive design” complete with wheelchairs for Xbox Avatars to the Xbox One. Now a few months later, it appears that Microsoft is continuing this initiative and is seeking feedback from disabled gamers for new GamerPics.
I need DETAILED suggestions or inspiration on how Xbox can create Gamerpics (different from avatars) that represent PWD. #soeveryonecangame

As seen above, Xbox designer Bryce Johnson mentioned that the Xbox team is now looking for suggestions on how Xbox can create Gamerpics that represent people with disabilities. In fact, Bryce even commented on a post about the subject from a few months ago on the Xbox Useroice. He also suggested that making custom gamer pics would be great, and responded to a Tweet which asked if it would be possible to create symbols to go in the corners of existing Gamerpics.
So, what do you think of Bryce’s suggestions? Will you be submitting any ideas to him? Let us know your thoughts by dropping us a comment below!
