Stevie Wonder wants accessible games
Stevie Wonder was on hand at Spike's Video Game Awards over the weekend to award the best music game gong to The Beatles: Rock Band. The star also went on to praise the accessibility of the rhythm-action genre as a whole, asking games developers to do more to allow everyone to play their games.
Wonder hopes the rest of the games industry can take a look at what the rhythm-action scene has done for disabled gamers, and open up the medium still further. Wonder has been blind since birth.
How gaming firms can open up their wares to "disabled accessibility", as requested by Wonder, remains unclear, but given the leaps and bounds the the form has taken in recent years we're betting that someone, somewhere will have taken heed.
More as we get it. Thanks Kotaku.
