A newly discovered Patent of Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed what appears to be a DualShock 4 controller specifically designed for mobile gaming.
As discovered by VGC After it was published earlier this week, the new patent was authorized by Sony Interactive Entertainment division in Japan and shows how intensely the companies are focusing on the lucrative field. mobile game market.
With a hub for attaching mobile devices and a PlayStation controller on either side, this new patent is almost exactly what we’d expect if someone told us. Sony created a new dedicated mobile gaming controller.
Oddly enough, the newly published patent shows a controller based on the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4, rather than the newer and more feature-rich DualSense controller from the PlayStation 5.
According to the patent, the rather simplistic drawings omitted more interesting features such as “a shaft section that can be tilted by the user and detects the direction and amount of tilt of the shaft section.” Presumably, the center section will also be able to adjust to accommodate some mobile devices.
While it’s currently unclear if or when we’ll see this new PlayStation mobile controller, hopefully it’s a good sign for the mobile gaming market. If we’re really lucky, Sony maybe even release PlayStation Now on mobile to compete with Xbox Cloud Gaming.
