Over the last few weeks, Sony released the refreshed PlayStation 5 Slim, handheld PlayStation 5 Portal remote player and new PS Pulse Explorer wireless earbuds for the holiday season. Now Sony has just released a new accessory that increases the PS5’s community.
Priced at $89.99 at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and PlayStation Direct, the Sony PlayStation Access Controller is a new controller kit that’s highly customizable for accessibility purposes — especially for players with disabilities or dexterity issues.
Made for easy access, the PS Access Controller is adaptive for many different types of playing styles — thanks to its 360-degree design, extendable joystick, swappable and magnetized buttons and stick caps, range of motion, textured layout and more. It even has designed to stay stationary on flat surfaces, including a wheelchair tray or a AMPS pattern mount.

Meanwhile, the new controller is expandable for different types of configurations. This means you can sync two PS Access Controllers together for additional accessibility, or you can pair it with a traditional PlayStation DualSense Wireless Controller (sold separately) for haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, motion sensors, and much more.
The PS Access Controller has four input ports at its base for additional expandability to connect peripherals, like joysticks, action buttons, triggers and others. There’s even custom profiles available for up to 30 individual controller settings, which means it’s easier and faster to re-map the entire controller (after setup) based on the game being played. The options for customizability and configurations are nearly endless.
This is a big win for game accessibility! The Sony PS Access Controller is available for $89.99 at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and PlayStation Direct. In the meantime, watch a trailer for the new gaming controller, below:
