Sony files patent Move/DualShock Hybrid type Controller

/ 6 years ago

A Sony patent application shows a  dual-shock controller with the Playstation move type hybrid controller.

Both parts of the controller which can be detected by the console when split- has accelerometer, magnetometer- and also support for vibration and audio playback through embedded speaker. According to the patent filing, Playstation Eye Camera will be required to use the new controller.

Its not clear however if its made for Playstation 3 or 4- or both? Honestly- I am not sure if this would be good for Sony’s Playstation or not, but it does seem interesting (for consoles) considering Wii’s nun-chucks type controllers worked in Nintendo’s favour.
