Sony Announces Project Leonardo Controller

Controller for players with disabilities.

Back in 2018 Microsoft announced and then released a controller for players with disabilities. This year at the Consumer Electronics Show, Sony has followed. Dubbed Project Leonardo, the controller is a customizable kit that aims at helping disabled gamers play PlayStation 5.

The kit contains swappable components, analog stick caps, and more. The controller can store profiles that can be swapped between games easily, allowing for people to program specific button sets for specific games. Up to two Leonardo controllers and one regular controller can be paired as one controller.

“Today at CES, we announced the next step in our journey to make gaming more accessible: Project Leonardo for PlayStation 5. Developed with key contributions from accessibility experts, community members, and game developers, Project Leonardo is our codename for a new highly customizable controller kit that works “out of the box” to help many players with disabilities play games more easily, more comfortably, and for longer periods.”

In fact the only thing the controller can’t do is reveal its price yet. For more details, check out the official blog.
