PS5 Icon Passing Accessibility

As a UX Designer, I am shocked that the icon passing is shown the way that it is on PS5. Having each icon styled the same (I understand the controller is that way) is an accessibility nightmare for users.

At least add an option to have the icons colored with their respective colors (Blue X, Green Triangle, etc.).

The PS5 controller buttons (X, Triangle, Circle, Square) don't have colors like they did on the PS4. This may be why they don't show up as the colors on the PS5 version of the game.

Well, that IS the reason. The OP was just asking for the option to add colors to the icons. I have the Stadia version of NBA 2K21, and they do the same thing. Hate it.

That is definitely why, but it still isn't accessible.

Because the controller is physically in your hand, you understand which buttons are which because of positioning and their label. This is how Sony justified their prettier design for the controller. The problem now is when the icon is displayed on screen, you only have their label which requires you to focus on each component to understand it.

I get this may not make a lot of sense or seem like a big deal, but it is definitely an inaccessible solution.

Another example of this would be when you see the player you are controlling on defense.
The player you control is highlighted and the highlight is below the player's feet. If they moved the highlight to the top-right of the screen instead, it would be inaccessible because of positioning.
