Sony’s Project Leonardo PS5 accessibility controller now has an official name finally and it is the: Access controller. The customizable controller as you should know is designed for players with disabilities and it includes swappable buttons and stick caps in a bid to adapt to many needs. The gaming company has also built an Access controller UI into the PS5 console that helps to offer control over button mapping as well as profiles and a special virtual controller option.

“On the PS5 console, players can select their preferred orientation for the Access controller, map different inputs to the various buttons, toggle buttons on or off, or even map two different inputs onto the same button,” Hideaki Nishino, senior VP of platform experience at Sony Interactive Entertainment explains.

How the Access Controller Works

This very type of customization includes profiles for different games as well as the ability to use up to two Access controllers and then a single DualSense controller together as a virtual controller. This very virtual controller helps to mix and match devices or even allows for a collaborative type of play with other people. Sony also has created a toggle mode which works somewhat like a keyboard’s caps lock key to toggle a button on or off without players ever needing to hold it down.

Pricing and Release Date

And while Sony has announced the Access controller name and some other additional details in regards to the new product which is part of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, we are however still waiting to hear information in regards to the pricing and the release date. “We’ll have more to share about the Access controller for PS5, including more product and release details, in the months ahead,” Nishino states.

How to Pair a DualSense Wireless Controller with PS5    

While this may seem easy, it really is not, unless you already know how to get it done. But if on the other hand, you are one of the many who don’t know how to make the necessary connections with your controller and your console, follow the steps below to get it done;

  • Firstly, make sure that your PS5 console is on.
  • Next, you will have to connect the controller to your console simply by using the USB cable that is included in the device.
  • In the event that your controller is turned off, you will have to press the PS button. And after the light bar blinks, the player indicator will light up.

That’s it.

Can You Turn On Your PS5 Console with Controller

The easiest and simplest way to turn on your PS5 console is to just press the PS button located in the middle of the DualSense controller. This action will wake up your PS5 and it will then start up as normal. It is however very important to note that you only can use this very method after you already have set up your PS5 and your DualSense controllers.
