Sony Project Leonardo unveiled at CES 2023
During this year’s edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) which runs until next January 8, Sony presented Project Leonardo. It is a new controller for PS5 that comes with a commendable function and much desired news.
The Japanese gaming giant is developing this new controller to allow people with special needs to “play more comfortably and for longer periods of time”. This is commendable function.
Now let’s get to the exciting news. The new controller comes with a customizable parts kit that allows you to exchange the included parts for others. In addition, there are several software options. According to Jim Ryan, CEO of PlayStation, the idea is to provide “an out-of-the-box experience”.
This equipment was specially developed to meet the needs of gamers with “limited motor control” who find it difficult to hold a controller for a long period of time, to position their fingers and also have difficulty pressing small buttons accurately.
To address these issues, the new controller has the buttons on two flat circular pads, with an expanded area of pressure points. Sony considers this controller to be a “gamer’s screen”, as it is fully customizable and includes buttons of various sizes and shapes.
On the other hand, Project Leonardo also allows you to map several buttons to the same function. It is also possible to store button configurations as profiles. Everything to facilitate the desired and appropriate selection for the various types of games.
Although Sony has presented this new controller, it is still in development. For this reason, the Japanese giant did not provide information about its arrival date on the market and the final sale price to the public.
