Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 5 – Access Controller will launch on December 6 for $89.99 USD. Pre-orders are available for pre-orders starting July 21. On the PlayStation Blog, Sony explains that the access controller allows users to create up to 30 control profiles that include stick settings, toggle commands, and complete shutdowns of all buttons to prevent accidental right presses. The access controller comes with four expansion ports, 19-button decks, three-bar decks, and 23-button deck cards.
Users can also pair up to two access controllers and one DualSense controller to further customize their setup. PlayStation has also shared the official trailer for the Access controller.
Users in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Austria and Portugal can pre-order the new product through PlayStation Direct. The access controller will hit the shelves of select retailers on December 6th.
The controller was first revealed at CES 2023 as Project Leonardo. At the time, Sony said the controller was designed to “remove barriers to gaming and make it easier for people with disabilities to experience gaming more easily, comfortably, and for longer periods of time” than on PS5.
