New Access Controller Accessibility Consultants Spotlight Video and Setup Tutorials

With the launch of the Access controller for PS5 around the corner on December 6, today, PlayStation Australia is excited to share some behind the scenes info with some accessibility experts who consulted on this project, as well as share new resources for players with disabilities to learn more about how this highly customisable controller kit can help them play more comfortably and for longer periods.

Behind the scenes: stories from accessibility experts

The Access controller would not have been possible without the support and feedback from consultants and community playtesters across the U.S., Europe, and Japan.  Some of these experts were recently provided with the final product so they can start customising their favourite setups. Hear from accessibility consultants Paul Amadeus Lane and Cesar Flores, AbleGamers’ Peer Counselor Aaron Price, SpecialEffect Ambassador Paul Phillips, and Insomniac Games’ Accessibility Design Researcher Sam Schaffel about how the Access controller opens up new ways for them to enjoy gaming that previously weren’t possible: here.

New tutorial guides and videos

As a versatile PS5 controller kit with a novel design and expansive customisation options, the Access controller includes a lot of new features and functionality for players to explore. SIE is pleased to launch a new support hub that includes detailed how-to guides and video tutorials, including steps to tailor the Access controller’s hardware and software features to create a setup that suits you best.
