PlayStation registers a patent that describes a controller to play on mobile devices


The company has already shown an interest in exploring the iOS and Android market with some of its franchises.

PlayStation has celebrated this year the best summer ever after managing to distribute 13.4 million PS5 consoles. But beyond Sony’s new generation hardware, the company has confessed to being very interested in exploring the mobile device market, taking some of its franchises to systems iOS and Android.

This growing interest in the mobile market could justify this new patent which has been echoed by VGC and which has been published this week by the Japanese division of SIE. We can see a game system for mobile devices, where two side grips similar to those of the DualShock 4 would allow to integrate a device with a screen.
