Sony filed a patent back in the spring for a new controller, one that combines the duelshock we know and love with the Wiimote-esque PS move controller. It was approved today.
The controller itself is in the shape of a duelshock, but can split in half via magnets and become the two PS move controllers. The top has an orb for each half, just like the regular move controller. This would be good for games that use both, because you wouldn’t have to switch at all. Just tap a switch and pull apart. That is pretty neat-o if you ask me (but very, very weird at the same time). We don’t know if this is for the Playstation 3, it may be for the rumored Playstation 4.
Keep in mind that this may not actually happen. A patent is just that, after all. It wouldn’t be the first time a company has patented an idea and never used it. Check out this image for the patent below.
