The scope concepts would be cool, but I imagine that would be a next gen technology if it ever sees the light of day. I doubt Bluetooth has the necessary bandwidth to be pushing a real-time video feed, even at low resolution.

... Except we already know it can happen this gen. How would it be so much different to take the idea of Remote Play then patch it through the scope?

An OLED scope for the already existing Sharp Shooter would be sweet. Plus low res could be an understatement, but then again why would you need high res for a screen that'd essentially be less than three inches big?

If the scope eyepiece is sized realistically then there is no need for more than about a 200x200 video feed, and bluetooth has more than enough bandwidth for that.

So you put the Vita on your head and then stand on the dual shock and wave the move behind your back? Is that how this works?

I want to play killzone 4 with m&k.

Just looked at the full patent filing. There's a picture of a mouse and keyboard connected to ps3. It's listed there with other peripharals like dualshock/move/camera/handheld . So you might just get your wish.

Theres also some wierd cloud based application with people in different homes in front of camaras..all using different controllers who all appear to be playing the same game together.
why is there a 6 pointed star in the network processing pic? Is sony Illuminati satanism? j/k

Wouldn't doubt if this is something for the PS4, all the consoles will try and lure in families and casuals right from the start. A new version of Move packed right in would make sense.

hopefully we will see this before the PS4

Why is this Wiiu-like? isn't it an upgrade to the sharpshooter they already have on the market?

Seriously, this whole 'Sony copies Nintendo' is totally out of control

O_o?
There's a screen in the back of the PS3 gun peripheral.

That'll be the Vita then. Like I said, it's an upgrade to the gun that's already out.
