Sony designed a highly customizable access controller that is accessible to gamers with disabilities. The idea of using technology to include gamers with disabilities is just an A+!

The gaming community is getting greater and cooler.

You might think that it’s just buttons and it is only a game.  

But in a world where technology’s primary purpose should be to build, include, and progress, it’s essential to remember that even seemingly basic rights can be a distant dream for some.

However, it’s crucial to recognize that empathy alone is not enough. Sony’s commitment to invest time and resources into executing such initiatives not only demonstrates their dedication but also establishes a reputation for doing something truly remarkable.

The GOOD from technology!

The PlayStation 5 features a variety of swappable buttons and stick caps, as well as adjustable stick lengths and tension.

The key features for the access controller are:

  1. The controllers can function from any 360° orientation and can be used on flat surfaces.
  2. Gamers can extend or shorten the control stick’s extension arm to let them be comfortable and accessible.
  3. Players can align the button design to match their mobility and change between the included stick caps to discover the shape and texture that works best for them.
  4. Enjoy watching the ‘Features Trailer’!

Expanding (too) more…

Sony is expanding the accessibility of the access controller to more countries.

For now, it available for purchase of a price tag $159 in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia. As well as it is working on new accessories for the Access controller, like the mounting system – The mount directs the operating system to attach a file system at a specific directory. By that only a file system is accessible. So, the mounting system will allow it to be connected to wheelchairs and other mobility devices.  

It may sound cliché, but there’s an undeniable sense of satisfaction that comes from using technology for the sole purpose of bringing smiles to others and elevating our communities to new heights.
