A patent for a PlayStation mobile controller has been spotted, showing what appears to be two halves of a DualShock with screen in between.
So they're kinda like joycons, but with your phone in the middle. Not a bad idea, it worked for the Razer controller. I'm wondering why it interfaces with the device/console though. Unless it's just remote play.
Probably remote play, I still remember they had a mobile section I still got some of the games on vita. Man also remember those ps minis. RIP, I like some of those games I wanted more.
PS Minis was a great idea but I didn’t like Sony said they couldn’t have trophies.
It's a good idea however I wish they continued their Xperia play design approach with a slide out gamepad. A android phone with good specs and a built in gamepad would do really well these days now that gaming on mobile had advanced over what it was when they first tried it. I would game on mobile way more if it was as simple as slide out controls even if the phone was thicker
I so regret recycling my xperia play phone, didnt realise at the time it might be worth something one day.
Hopefully a phone controller.. finally
A proper one for Remote Play would be aces. The Vita was OK but it felt too clunky for me.
I really hope so. I have the GameSir and it's great overall. But I do wish the analogs felt a little better. It would be awesome to have an official controller that works with the regular remote play app
When I was in 10th grade 2004 I would doodle in my books and I often drew a phone attached to a controller to be used like a phone with PS style controls. Just an idea I had I’m sure many others thought of something similar. Pretty cool that they might make something like that.
Sony want to be the next apple essentially.
Finally, the real reason dualsense doesn't work on most androids. Wouldn't want consumers to get the benefit instead of Sony now would we?
Hope this means cloud streaming.
I'm assuming remote play is involved. Maybe PS Now on mobile devices.
I'd much rather an Xperia Play 2 with stock Android and OS/security updates.
