Over the past few years, Sony has been leading the way in the accessibility space through its games and expansion of services. Naughty Dog titles The Last of Us: Part II and the PS5 remake The Last of Us: Part I are heralded as some of the most accessible experiences in the industry, while additional information was added to PS Store product pages to help disabled users.
Rather conveniently (though not planned), pre-orders for the PS5 Access Controller tie in very nicely with the addition of accessibility options on Game Pages here on Push Square. As announced yesterday, you can now discover the sort of accessibility options a PS5, PS4 game has thanks to our friends at Family Gaming Database on the website.
