On December 6th, the Access Controller, a specially customizable controller set for the PlayStation 5, will hit the market. A recent video showcases collaboration between hardware and UI designers, organizations responsible for user research and committed to greater accessibility. This joint project aims to enable players with disabilities to enjoy more enjoyable and lasting gaming.
The design of the controller kit isn’t the only focus; The packaging was also thoughtfully designed. The access controller packaging is designed to be opened with one hand. Thanks to loops that can be pulled from the left and right and additional internal loops, opening and removing the controller is child’s play.
Details on access controller functions and pre-order options are available here In the connected area.
The Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit for the Access Controller was also presented. This official accessory was developed in collaboration between Logitech, the SIE team and the disability community.
The kit, which will be available from December on LogitechG.com and in selected stores for €79.99 (RRP), includes:
