    Sony, What Are You Doing?

    The Move, the Vita, now this monstrosity:

    PlayStation

    Way back in May 2011, Sony Computer Entertainment America filed a United States patent application for the “Hybrid Separable Motion Controller,” which in layman’s terms is a DualShock and PlayStation Move in one. Yesterday, the patent was approved.The eagle eyes over at thesixthaxis spotted the patent and posted the PDF, but the general idea is that you’re getting a DualShock with a PlayStation Move orb on each side. From there, the controller breaks in half via magnets so that you can wave your arms for your favorite PlayStation Move-enabled game. Each half of the controller has its own speaker, accelerometer, vibration option and so on.
    Look at all the fun he's having!
    No word on what device the controller is intended for – PS3 or the ever-rumored PS4/Orbis – but CVG.com points out that the patent “also shows a Cell/RSX configuration on one slide, suggesting that the device is likely to be related to a current platform, if it is in fact even planned for release.”
    And there’s the important snippet – if it’s planned for release. Sony patents stuff all the time and doesn’t use it, so don’t run out to preorder the controller yet. When reached for comment, a Sony rep said "Unfortunately, we do not comment on patents."
    Would you even buy this thing? Let us know in the comments below, and thanks toIGN reader Jordan Bird for tipping us off to this whole thing.

    It's not all that ridiculous, especially when you venture into the pathetic realm that is motion controls. It's not like they're going to stop producing the DS controller and replace it with this, so a gigantic *shrug* from me.

    This has backfire written all over it. No way would someone be able to play any game with that kind of a controller.

    Oh, one additional thought...at least this would solve the problem of people buying Move controllers and never touching them again...even if they're only playing traditionally controlled games with them.

    Nothing is wrong with the Vita. Just because Sony doesn't know what to do with it doesn't make it a bad product.

    As for your patent, companys patent every dumb thing they think of JUST IN CASE they want to make it or someone beats them to the punch and they want to sue them.

    Yeah, that looks bad. I wouldn't like that, and hopefully it would just be an optional controller.

    you mean it's dumber than a controller with a tablet screen in the middle that requires a charging cable that has to be plugged into an AC outlet?
