PlayStation 5 access controller

Sony has officially announced the launch of its accessible Playstation 5 controller for gamers with physical disabilities.

The Access Controller comes with swappable buttons, stick caps, the opportunity to use in numerous orientations or secured to a tripod.

Players can plug in their own additions, such as switches, buttons or analogue sticks, in one of the four 3.5mm AUX ports.

The controllers’ User Interface gives players the opportunity to create personalised settings and configurations in a distinct profile, including setting the controller orientation, button assignments, stick sensitivity and more.

Another feature is the option to pair the Access Controller with a DualSense where it can be used as a single virtual controller or to play with another gamer.

But you will have to wait a bit longer until you can try one out for yourself as Sony are yet to announce when the controller will go on sale.
