More than 50 tags have now become available through the PlayStation Store ensuring gamers with disability are able to search for needed accessibility features that games have, before making purchases. The tags, available for PS5 users help gamers choose PS4 or PS5 games.
After opening the PS5 store on the PS5, gamers can access the accessibility tags by pressing the triangle button on the DualSense controller. This will then showcase the categories and tags.
If certain games have both PS4 and PS5 versions, gamers may select the down arrow at the top of the left side menu and select the desired version.
Either use the analog stick or D-Pad to select the different categories and tags. When an Accessibility Tag is highlighted on the right side of a category, there will be a short description of what it does.
Grouped into six categories, the 50 tags fall into – Visuals, Audio, Subtitles and Captions, Controls, Gameplay, and Online Competition. When selecting one of the categories, a gamer can find more in-depth analysis such as High Contrast Visuals, Audio Cue Alternatives, etc.,
Microsoft has already unveiled similar tags for XBox games, and hopefully this will become a staple for the gaming experience.
