The latest in Sony gaming patents shows the company may be looking at a solution to map buttons on non-electronics, including a banana..
Thankfully not like Google and have their products die within a year or so.
@ gamesftw250 Like PS Mobile?
For scale. Lol just an offical patent picture with fingers and a banana. Objects like a mug, a pen, or yes even a banana can be used as a controller for the PS5. Can help with drift.
Disagrees, but its right in the article. This the article I read, which provides more information on different vr controller ideas Sony have a patent for. https://www.gamesindustry.b...
Upside down PS3 boomerang! I always wanted one of those.
This is how James Bond plays games.
That's probably a good thing. You can use any object as a controller/ weapons. This is probably for PSVR 2.
I was SURE this was an Onion article!
Wow. So this is what Jim Ryan is having the teams work on? No wonder no restocks are occurring. Jim Ryan is destroying Playstation.
Chipsets shortages with manufacturing... smh https://www.cnbc.com/2021/0...
@Nodoze Companies will have literally hundreds of patents on the go, the majority of them will never see the light of day, others will be licensed out for other companies to use, others will be used by the company. Remember Illumiroom from Microsoft? This will most probably never see the light of day at a consumer level, but it looks darn good and that was 8 years ago. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
That PS3 banana controller was so cool.
I sense a donkey kong buyout.
Sony really like their motion controls being ___ toys XD
dualsense banana incoming
This is just a sneaky way for them to bring back the Boomerang controller from the PS3 reveal era, isn't it?
I still want that shit
The next VR-Headset will have built-in augmented reality and can recognize items you register as controllers?
I see really cool application with card games.
Accessibility options are out of control. I guess even monkeys gotta get on the ragnarok though.
this shit is bananas
Hmm I swear I saw this years earlier with the eye toy/ps eye
I think this goes one step further.
That patent picture look like something else.........
New Ape Escape later this year?
It will be for recognition within vr.
i have seen this before ended up been april fools joke
Makes me think of the time in Metal Gear Solid 3 when Zero is talking about James Bond with Snake and asks if he'd like a snake that turns into a gun. This would be a banana that turns into a controller, lol
"It would be desirable if a user could use an inexpensive... device as a video game peripheral,” the application reads." Great so Sony have changed their mind on preventing spare Dual Shock 4's from being used with PS5 games I assume.
Dick jokes aside if the new VR can register objects as guns, you know some fool is gonna use a real gun as a controller and there will be casualties.
A banana, you say? Sounds...ap-peel-ing. 😎 https://i.ytimg.com/vi/NB1S...
Well seeing as the PS5 looks like it was designed by monkeys in a lab, i would not be suprised.
Will Raffi be in the marketing with "Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring... banana controller!"?
