Sony patents hybrid DualShock/Move controller

Break apart pad could combine traditional and motion gaming

Sony has patented a hybrid DualShock/Move controller.

Titled Hybrid Separable Motion Controller, the patent was filed in May 2011 and published yesterday, November 29.

Images attached to the patent show what looks pretty much like a PS3 DualShock pad with PlayStation Move orbs attached to each shoulder.

The device can be separated into two pieces, with each half housing its own magnetometer, accelerometer, gyro, vibration function and even a speaker,

The Sixth Axis reports that a PDF slide attached to 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.
