Sony Patents Hybrid Separable DualShock/Move Controller

Sony has patented a hybrid DualShock/Move controller which can be separated into two parts.

The patent for the Hybrid Separable Motion Controller was filed back in May 2011 and was published yesterday, November 29. Images attached to the patent show a normal DualShock controller with PlayStation Move orbs attached to each shoulder.

The controller can be separated into two pieces, with each half housing its own magnetometer, accelerometer, gyro, and rumble function. Whether this controller will ever see the light of day is yet to be seen, but it’s a pretty cool idea, and opens up the possibility of using dual move controllers as a standard in games.

Would you use this controller? Share your thoughts below.

Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
