“On your PS5 console, there are many settings for the Access controller that you can configure to meet your needs,” Sony said in the release date announcement. “You can map buttons to create up to 30 control profiles, adjust stick settings, toggle commands on/off, or disable buttons altogether to stop accidental pressing.
