One of many ways Sony is looking to push accessibility with the PS5.
The PS5 has no shortage of things to boast of, and one look at its spec sheet makes it clear that it’s going to be a big leap over its predecessor. But while the specs are impressive, to say the least, what Sony have been concentrating on in the lead up to the console’s launch just as much is the controller. The DualSense, with its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, is promising to bring an altogether new level of immersion to games, and developers seem to be implementing its features in their games in pretty interesting ways.
Keeping accessibility in mind, though, Sony is aware that not every user will want to – or be able to – engage with these new features. Talking about the accessibility features of the PS5 in a new update, Sony recently confirmed that users will have the option to reduce or even outright disable the headlining features of the new controller, namely the adaptive triggers and the haptic feedback.
The PS5 will launch in some regions of the world on November 12, and everywhere else on November 19. Stay tuned until then for continued coverage.
