Best Video Games on PlayStation 3 with "Multiple Buttons & Two Sticks" 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 Controls - Gamepad accessibility (how you control the game, different options for alternative inputs and whether you can remap these settings to suit your needs) for the following:

Multiple Buttons & Two Sticks: Can play with multiple buttons and two sticks.
