Unfortunately, I don't know of any mainstream console like that. All
of them require some sighted assistance when you are starting out.
Even if it is just to have someone read off the menus so you can
braille them up for later reference and things like that.
However, as been said many times fighting games like Street Fighter,
MK vs DC, and things like that can be successfully played on your own
once you get the hang of the various moves, menus, and other basics
like that out of the way.
Unfortunately, games I like to play such as Tomb Raider Underworld
can't be played without sighted assistance because the levels are too
complex. They are fully 3d with Lara Croft having to climb walls,
polls, jump over pits, and all kinds of stuff that makes it difficult
to do without both sight and dead on accuracy. Sometimes I have to
hand the controller to my wife to get passed a certain trap etc as I
simply can't do it without sight. So any kind of 3d third-person game
isn't something for us to play. Not really unless you have sighted
asistance. Fighting games like Street Fighter are managable though.
