After years of testing, Sony Access controller for PlayStation 5 consoles is finally launched today. The accessibility-friendly controller is priced at $89,99 and is customizable.
“Every detail, down to the inclusively-designed packaging that’s openable with one hand, was inspired by our conversations with accessibility experts and playtesters,” Sony boasts in the official announcement.
Sporting the white snow color, the controller is designed to overcome three common obstacles for players with disabilities: hand fatigue from extended gameplay, difficulty with fine motor control, and limitations in finger and thumb placement.
It comes with a set of 19 interchangeable button caps and 3 stick caps in various shapes and sizes, allowing players to customize them to their individual needs and preferences. The button layout is swappable, and you can take the controller out for a spin from any 360° orientation, even on flat surfaces or a wheelchair tray.
Players can create up to 30 personalized control profiles on their PS5 console, and store three of them directly on the Access controller for quick switching during gameplay.
And, for an additional $79.99, you can further enhance your control options with the complementary LogitechG Adaptive Gaming Kit for Access controller, which will be available next year.
You can order the Sony Access controller on the PlayStation Store’s website right here.
