Sony Announces PS5’s Project Leonardo, Customizable Accessibility Controller

During the Sony CES 2023 press conference, Sony Interactive Entertainment President Jim Ryan announced Project Leonardo, a new accessible controller for the PlayStation 5.

Project Leonardo features a circular base and a set of interchangeable buttons and joysticks that can be fully customized to the specific needs of the player. It was developed “with significant input from accessibility experts, community members, and game developers,” according to the official. PlayStation blog post. Sony has released a video that talks more about the project, and you can find an image of the controller below.

The PlayStation Blog also says the PS5 will allow Project Leonardo controller users to fully customize controls across all software, including mapping multiple buttons to the same area. Multiple Leonardo controllers can be paired–as well as a DualSense controller–to be used as a single controller.

“Because players can customize Project Leonardo to their needs, there’s no ‘right’ form factor,” Sony designer So Morimoto said in a blog post. “I’m glad the design will be completed through collaboration with the players rather than presenting them with a single form factor.”

No official release information, including pricing or release date, was mentioned in the blog, only that the controller is still “currently under development”.
