Sony has unveiled the PlayStation Access Controller, a new piece of hardware to ensure everyone, regardless of physical ability, can enjoy the magic of gaming. The detailed journey of its development was recently shared in a blog post that sheds light on Sony’s mission of inclusivity.
Slated for release on December 6, this innovative controller has been crafted with high accessibility in mind. Right down to the one-hand-open packaging, every aspect of it has been meticulously thought through. It’s not just about the controller; the packaging, too, is designed for easy access.
The Access controller comes with 19 interchangeable button caps and three stick caps, allowing for a level of customization that caters to the individual needs of gamers. This level of personalization is a nod to the diverse needs of the gaming community.
Adding to the inclusivity, Sony has joined forces with Logitech, a notable name in gaming peripherals, to introduce the Logitech Adaptive Gaming Kit. This accessory, poised to launch in January 2024 for $79.99, is a blend of buttons and pedals crafted to augment the accessibility features of the Access controller.
The collaboration between Sony and Logitech is a significant step towards something bigger. The kit is an array of tools that empower gamers to tailor their gaming setup in a way that’s quite comfortable and accessible to them.
