New Patent shows Dualshock/PS Move hybrid

Could Sony have thought of a way to combine both the DualShock and the PlayStation Move for its next generation console? Well if a new patent is anything to go by then it sure looks like it.

Patents don't always come to fruition, but we kind of like this one, which shows two PlayStation Move-style controllers which join together and form a regular DualShock. Clever huh?

The patent was published yesterday and is known as a "hybrid separable motion controller." Could this be the controller which is included with the next PlayStation? That'd sure be a way to get motion gaming into people's homes.

According to the patent the Move controllers would work as they do now, i.e they'd light up and you'd still need a camera for them to function.

We like this idea. What do you think?

seems quite unique in design only time will tell if it will be used or not personally, im not too amazed realistically, you wouldn't buy a ps4 because it had a good looking controller, would you?

i think the playstation could do with a better controller but this is not it. If the controller can be taken apart to use for move games it will not feel as natural as the move does now when your playing tennis games etc.

Marketing strategy: Add more balls. Because everyone likes more balls that glow!
Good idea but I still prefer the Kinect where you don't need to hold anything whilst playing.

This could be just what the PS4 will need to make gamers sit up and take notice against whatever Microsoft can come up with. To be honest my PS3 move just sits gathering dust and it's a shame needs to be a lot more use for it with existing/forthcoming games.

Considering the addiction people have of shoving their 'manly parts' in front of people's faces after a kill. A console with more balls stuck on would be right up their alley lol

I didn't like the Move stuff so unconvinced at the moment. It depends what happens. I would like a shift towards the Kinect style on Sony consoles but to be fair if I wanted Move I would get an old Wii which has a cheap back catalogue now

Motion hasn't been incorporated into most games that well; many times as an added gimmick, although there are a few exceptions I've played games and it feels natural - Child of Eden, Kinect: Star Wars (in certain places, though) and Wii Sports Resort. Most times it just feels unnecessary in a game.

Hope it won't look like that, if it has a better look and works well. I think I can finally get behind this motion control stuff. That demo video that was show, looked pretty nice. Well at least what they did was nice.

I hope not too a Kinect style operation would be better and Sony knows the technology.

Now lets all thank god that this never happened. What a mess. The only way motion controls should work going forward are controller free options.

Completely agree with you Hallben. I really like Kinect bar the fact it's not on the PS3. I don't like the idea of the globes on top but splitting the controller into two isn't a terrible idea especially for games like Buzz would make it far more accessable

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
