In the most recent years, there has been a continual rise in awareness regarding the problem of accessibility in video games, which has resulted in both game creators and hardware manufacturers taking steps to make games more accessible to players who require assistance to enjoy them.
Sony has recently made fresh details and images of their forthcoming Access Controller available, making it simpler and more comfortable for gamers with impairments to participate in gaming activities.
Xbox also comes with its own Adaptive Controller, which enables users to connect external control devices to the console, such as switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks, to personalize a control technique that is optimal for their playing requirements.
