Games on PlayStation 3 with Visual Cues for Audio Events 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 review, this page lists games that have been flagged with accessibility settings in the following areas.
