Video Introduction to Accessibility Initiatives

Some of the people responsible for the PS4®’s accessibility features share their thoughts on the importance of accessibility in the following video.

Introduction to Game Software Accessibility

The PS4® title The Last of Us Part II has been created to ensure that as many fans as possible have an opportunity to experience the game through their most robust accessibility feature set to-date and offers more than 60 accessibility settings.

The PS4® title Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End offers robust accessibility features. The catalyst for the addition of these features was the strong alignment between the users’ needs and SIE’s ideas on accessibility.
