Sony announces new accessible controller for PS5

Project Leonardo aims to help players with disabilities

Posted on

This week at CES, Sony has announced Project Leonardo for PlayStation 5.

Developed with key contributions from accessibility experts, community members, and game developers, Project Leonardo is a new highly customizable controller kit looking to help many players with disabilities play games more easily, more comfortably, and for longer periods.

It is built to address common challenges faced by many players with limited motor control, including difficulty holding a controller for long periods, accurately pressing small clusters of buttons or triggers, or positioning thumbs and fingers optimally on a standard controller.

It includes a robust kit of swappable components, including a variety of analog stick caps and buttons in different shapes and sizes. Players can use these components to craft a wide array of control layouts. And the distance of the analog stick from the game pad can be adjusted to suit the player’s preference.

More details can be found at the PS Blog entry. Microsoft also offers the Xbox Adaptive Controller that was introduced in 2018.
