Sony patents new controller

While Sony has a new controller coming out early next year to use something called “Motion Controls”, Sony has patented another controller . As you can see its a very simple  one handed controller with only four face buttons.

While one could guess this could have just been a alternative design for their motion controller, Siliconera speculated that it probably is a quiz game controller for their Buzz line of games which would make sense.  We will have to wait and see if this controller will ever see the light of day.

More images from the patent are after the jump.

    1. lol I didn’t think about that. I kind of miss those buttons D: Although I think the C-stick did a fairly good job replicating their usage in N64 games on VC and OoT GCN ports.
