Sony Patent Shows PlayStation Controller Plugged Into PSP

PSPgo lets users control PSP games with a PlayStation 3 controller. Nifty, but what if you have a regular PSP? Well, there's this idea.

Sony Computer Entertainment America kicked around the idea of connecting a PSP directly to a standard PlayStation controller. A patent outlines two ideas. One uses a hinged PSP case locked on a regular controller. Another solution has users plug their PSP into a special controller

Does anyone else think plugging a PS3 controller into PSP like that and playing it would seem kind of awkward? It also looks like it would be heavy on the PSP's end. An uneven distribution of weight.

...the weight distribution does seems like it would be awkward and god forbid it's not secure and you drop you PSP. I think they are trying to find ways around a redesign to accommodate a second nub/analog stick. SONY KNOWS a second nub is needed and this just seems like a poor man design/work around for a quick and cheap fix.

that would make it like the PSPgo so you can use the DS3 through bluetooth.

i dont like it, id rather play it with one analogue stick. the second one should be built in to the psp. and maybe for the first psp with the weight problem, the slim is really light weight.

I always thought Sony would just make a 4000 with bluetooth and the pause and save feature, but I guess PSP2 is more likely. This seem a little funny though, the weight between PSP and a DS3 could hurt some peoples hands.

just to beable to plug in a ps3 controller via usb is good enuff for me,but no,they make it so you have to buy the latest psp to get that feature lol.

psp isnt any good for fps and if they did allow such a patch id sure wonna play some old psp fps.

just allow for psp play on the ps3 system itself,prob solved lol
