Today marks “Global Accessibility Awareness Day,” and in conjunction with it, Sony has released more information about “Project Leonardo,” the game controller developed by Sony to make it easier for people with disabilities to play games on PlayStation 5.
Sony has also given the controller an official name, and it is now called the “Access controller.” With the Access controller, players with disabilities who may have difficulty using the PS5’s DualSense controllers can use a controller that better suits their needs.
The Access controller is equipped with a wide range of buttons that can be assigned to different PS5 controls and games for the console. Sony also showcased the app for PS5 that will be used to configure the Access controller based on the user’s needs.
They also mentioned that it is possible to connect two Access controllers with a traditional DualSense controller to provide additional options for the player to control the game, as well as the ability for two players to control a game together.
Sony has not yet announced the release date or the price of the Access controller. In a blog post, they state that this information will be revealed sometime in the coming months. Below, you can see more images of the Access controller and the interface for configuring the game controller.
