Accessibility is an ambition pursued by several developers today, including console manufacturers. That video games are not only formulated to be played by “normal” gamers, but also to facilitate those with disabilities, from motor impairments to hearing and visual impairments. Sony is at the forefront of this garrison, with a variety of options that they have injected into the latest first-party games available today. It doesn’t stop there, following the steps that Microsoft has taken before, Sony is ready to push it to the next level with Project Leonardo.
Announced at CES 2023, Project Leonardo is a controller designed in such a way that it can be easily customized according to gamers’ wishes. The goal? To make gamers with disabilities, especially those with motor impairments, to be able to enjoy their favorite games more comfortably. With so many components that can be exchanged and replaced at will, Project Leonardo will be able to cover a variety of configurations tailored to the gamer’s strength, range of motion, and specific physical needs. You can even combine two Project Leonardo controllers if needed.
Project Leonardo is expected to help gamers with disabilities play games more comfortably.
Unfortunately, Sony has not yet discussed the price or release window for Project Leonardo. So far it has only been confirmed for the Playstation 5. What do you think? Interesting look?
