Detailed on their blog, PlayStation recently announced that the access controller, known as Project Leonardo previously, for PlayStation 5 (PS5) will launch globally on December 6th 2023, with availability for preordering kits on July 21st 2023.
This is a literal game-changer for individuals with disabilities. As a gamer with a disability myself, this device will increase my ability to play more games on PS5, when I am primarily a computer gamer. The current controller for the PS5 has amazing features, but for rapid clicking and holding of different buttons, I find myself needing to make a game “easier” to compensate for my joints locking while playing.
This piece of technology is highly customizable to meet the needs of the individual gamer, enhanced by accessibility features developed by lovely accessibility staff within game companies, will create a more accessible gaming world for gamers like me.
