Initially, the Microsoft Store for Xbox will get a new access panel in every game menu, which is designed to quickly identify which topics have which access features and what those features are. To get started, 20 access points will be supported – such as the described game menus, input reset and single-stick game – and developers will introduce a specific criterion to ensure a quality standard for each feature.
