PlayStation Access Controller Is Now Available, TLoU Part II Remastered Begins Preorders

If you know someone who has a disability but would like to enjoy games like any other person would, you can now get Sony’s Access Controller for PS5 as it is now available for purchase. Gamers with disabilities often couldn’t use normal controllers due to physical limitations, thus prompting Microsoft to engineer a solution around 5 years ago, with the introduction of the Xbox Adaptive Controller.

Now though, PlayStation gamers can have access to the platform’s exclusives without the difficulties with standard controllers thanks to the new Access Controller. As it is designed for people with many types of disabilities – some include motor, vision, etc – the buttons on the device are designed to be customizable to effectively adapt to its user. As a result, there are no embedded labels on each button: there are 19 swappable button caps that can be placed on any button as the user sees fit. Sony says it costs RM449 and is now available globally.

The company has also announced the pricing of the recently revealed The Last of Us Part II Remastered: starting at RM209 as a standalone digital copy. Existing owners of TLoU II on PlayStation platforms will be eligible for an upgrade that costs RM40, and instant access will be available when the game launches on January 19, 2024.

Aside from slightly updated graphics, the remastered title will include a new single-player survival mode called No Return. In this game mode, players will be put in a series of randomized encounters – and deaths will be costly, as it resets any weapons, items, and upgrades accumulated before death. You can read more on this game mode by reading on this blog post.

Pokdepinion: Looks like Sony took a vastly different design route compared to Microsoft’s solutions.
