The PlayStation 5 comes with a variety of accessibility options, including the option to create custom presets so all your games play similarly when you first boot them up. That means, for example, if you prefer playing with subtitles on, you can make it so that subtitles will be turned on by default for each new PS5 game.
Sony revealed the preset options during a tour of its UI and settings earlier this week. Now that we can talk more in-depth about the PS5, we know exactly how presets work and what players can change.
To configure your PS5 presets, players can go to Settings, then Saved Data and Game/App Settings then to Game PResets. From there you’ll have the option to change Subtitles and Audio that will let you turn subtitles and preferred audio options on by default for any new game.
The other options also include “Difficulty” so you can preset a difficulty between Easiest, Easy, Normal, Hard, or Hardest; “Performance or Resolution” which lets you choose to prioritize FPS or resolution where applicable; and ‘Camera Controls’ which lets you preset whether you want normal or inverted camera controls.
