Ben Bayliss2 minute read

PlayStation has revealed its dedicated accessibility website that show all information regarding accessibility across its consoles and first-party games.

Announced in a short blog post, Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed the official accessibility website stating, that the website is “aimed to support our diverse PlayStation community and help to provide more enjoyable experiences when playing on PlayStation platforms.”

The website includes the PS5 and PS4 consoles and the accessibility settings they have available at a system level. Then there are a number of first-party games available including The Last of Us: Part 2, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Returnal, and many more. There are also quotes from PlayStation executives, including President and CEO Jim Ryan, head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst, and global head of human resources Orit Ziv.

According to the blog post, the site looks to be regularly updated as Sony Interactive Entertainment continues it’s “journey to creating experiences without barriers.”

2021 has been a big year for showcasing accessibility directly at a system level. Earlier this year I wrote a feature on how accessibility needs to start being listed on digital stores, and at that time, the only store doing so was Google Stadia. Since then, Xbox revealed its accessibility tags feature that’s heading to its digital store, and now PlayStation has a website dedicated to highlighting the accessibility of its products.
