Best Games on PlayStation 3 with "Speaker Indicator, Their Tone and Environment Sounds" Accessibility Settings

The PlayStation 3 was released in 2006. It was the first console to use Blu-ray Disc to store games and moved gaming into the online realm with PlayStation Network. The first versions of the PlayStation 3 could run all PlayStation 2 games but this feature was soon dropped to get the price down.

It was launched with the wireless Sixaxis controllers which offered motion controls and a speaker as had been seen in the Wii. It dropped the vibration feedback aspect of the DualShock controllers, although this was soon reintroduced with DualShock 3.

As part of our Accessibility Report, this page lists games that have been flagged with accessibility settings in the following areas.

Reading: Each of these games has been assessed for how much reading or listening comprehension is required, how well the game provides visual and audible access to the text and whether subtitles and captions are a good fit for purpose. Each game offers the following accessibility features and settings:

  • Speaker Indicator, their Tone and Environment Sounds: Captions indicate who is speaking and their tone, game sound and music. This can also be indicated visually in the game with character icons or character expressions with text in speech bubbles next to the person speaking. Environmental sounds are provided as extra text within the subtitles.
