Could do with some more examples if best practice too.. indiecity has some great use of symbols, but neither that or steam have the ability to search for or list just games with a specific feature. Being able to filter out all games that aren't colour-blind friendly, for example.
Apple have now added a single page of accessibility related apps to their site, so from that I wouldn't too surprised if that's a first step towards them adding in accessibility feature listings to iTunes. If that happens I doubt it will be for games, but even so it all appears to be heading in the right direction.
There are also the smaller proprietory game stores opening up, ouya etc, that are looking for a competitive edge and free from the corporate beaurocracy and status quo pressures that have prevented some bigger organisations from doing it. The smaller companies seem pretty up for it from the conversations I've had at least, if anyone has any contacts with them it could be a good area to do a bit of lobbying in.

Great! How about EA Origin etc? Could be the next step?

There's now a more clarified listing on Steams store pages which tell us what languages are available in text, audio and subtitles! It's amazing to see, even though it appears to be a work in progress it's a HUGE step in the right direction and I want to give everyone a huge thank you for your help, you should be incredibly proud at your success, I know I am :D
