Carry on Gaming: The latest from Chris

Just been chatting to Joe, who was saying how great it was to visit our friend Chris again yesterday.

"We've visited him a few times now to try different controllers, and last time we loaned him a joystick with some large button switches," said Joe.

"One of Chris’ carers felt that an arcade stick might be better for him, so we tried out a C-SID 2 from Oneswitch and Chris got on really well with it!"

We've loaned Chris the arcade stick and a copy of FIFA 18. FIFA's his favourite game, and we think that the new auto switch player and auto sprinting in FIFA 18’s two button mode might be really helpful for him. Looking forward to seeing how he gets on with it!

Below: Joe and Chris with the new gaming control equipment.
