In line with a brand new patent, Sony is engaged on a brand new controller, presumably for PS5 or a future PlayStation console, that has a contact interface that’s customizable and a “button cluster” that may be rotated and swapped round. If this sounds acquainted, it is as a result of it seems like a controller that might be equal bits of Nintendo Wii U and the Xbox adaptive controller
“A controller gadget features a controller physique with an interface port and least one management data output port,” reads an besides of the patent. “A modular enter management is removably attachable to the controller physique. The modular enter management consists of an interface connector area that’s configured to communicatively couple the modular enter management to the interface port. The modular enter management is configured to be freely rotatable when hooked up to the controller physique and operable in any orientation in regards to the axis of rotation.”
Sadly, the patent is filled with technical jargon so it is tough to decipher and naturally it is fairly attainable nothing will ever come of this patent. The truth is, many patents by no means graduate from the conceptual stage into precise merchandise or client know-how. And naturally, it is attainable this patent has nothing to do with PlayStation or the PS5, however that appears unlikely given the outline above and the photographs beneath.
As all the time, we’ll you’ll want to hold you within the loop when and if Sony gives any kind of touch upon this patent and the hypothesis it has created. That stated, do not count on this to occur as Sony by no means feedback on patents.
