Sony has finally unveiled the controller for the PlayStation 5, DualSense, and now the company is asking for players with disabilities to provide their feedback on the controller to collect as much information as possible and to expand its use prior to launch.
The new controller is a bit different from previous ones, is characterized by a coloring of black and white and does not have colored buttons. The controller promises tactile feedback and trigger adaptive to increase the sense of immersion in the games.
However, a number of users with disabilities have shown their concerns about how they will benefit from the controller. Some of these concerns, brought to the attention of Mike Friend, a specialist in accessibility, Sony included the ability to adjust the tactile feedback, making it easier to use the buttons on the rear and the coloring of the buttons on the front panel.
If anyone has any #accessibility comments / concerns about the #DualSense send them this way. Seeing them pop up in a few places, but it would be useful for me to have as many of them in one place as possible.
Can’t make any promises, but want to hear what you’ve got to say!

Even though Sony has unveiled the specs of the PS5 and the DualSense, it is still too early to say if the PlayStation will take to heart these requests and bring the suggested changes.
In this field, Microsoft several years ago he created theXbox the Adaptive Controller, which allows players with physical disabilities to customize their experiences so that they can play their own way on a controller that is suitable to their needs.
It remains to be seen if the PlayStation will hear really feedback, however, there are still eight months to the launch of PS5, anything can happen.
