PS5 games are highlighted in PlayStation Store


The PlayStation Store will begin using “accessibility tags” for its PlayStation 5 titles this week, Sony announced on Monday. The tags highlight options for readers that support visual and audio accessibility, online communication, and other options.

Players can check a title’s accessibility options by tapping the triangular button on the game’s product page. According to Sony, there are more than 50 different tags that describe accessibility and are divided into six categories:

Visual (text options, color alternatives and directional audio displays)
Audio (screen playback, visual cues and volume controls)
Subtitles (subtitle size and opacity or transparency of the caption overlay)
Control (playback without holding the button or repeatedly pressing the button; controller remapping)
Gameplay (difficulty setting, simplified quick timer events or puzzle solving settings)
Online communication (text or voice chat transcription)

Sony said that some of its first-party games for PS5 will support these accessibility tags when the feature is introduced after this week. These include Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, God of War Ragnarök, Gran Turismo 7 and Marvel’s Spider-man Remastered, as well as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

The accessibility settings in the PlayStation Store reflect a similar scope in the Microsoft Store listings for the Xbox Series X, which highlight games with accessibility options for players who want to buy or download them.
