Today ponpo ran across a patent that leave some speculating as to whether Sony is planning on introducing a rumored PlayStation Switch type device such as a PSP Switch or PS Vita Switch similar to the Nintendo Switch. o_O

The patent is from 2015, however, it has just recently been published according to IGN.

To quote: "Like Nintendo Switch, the device looks very much like a tablet with two controller halves on either side, but instead of Joy-Cons flanking the screen, the half-controllers on either side of the device look like the handles on a DualShock 4."

Would anyone be interested in a PlayStation Switch type device for both home and mobile PlayStation gaming, or would you prefer something like the Playbook 4 instead? :unsure:

A ps3 and a ps4 controller on each side???!!!

Some patents are introduced just to make a move against the competitors. Im sure when Sony saw the NSwitch coming, they make this fake alienVSpredator creature to do "something" about it and presented it as a patent... Fake patents are not new in this industry.

That photo looks like a fake mountage just to fill the patent, a device like that will never sell a single unit to rational people. Im sure i cant built something similar just whit my iron and duck tape.

I'm still waiting for the heavenly soul that will spread the News: "It is official guys! PS4's vulnerability has been Released for all eyes to see and hands to touch!" "Rogero CFW 4.x.x for PS4 is available for download. Links below." "Deank releases Multiman 4.x.x!"... You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one ... :bananaman13:

I don't think is some new console. What I think it is a custom case for a potentially upcoming Sony Android tablet. It's could be the xperia play 2; just as a tablet and not a phone. I do find it interesting that it surfaced 1 month before the switch comes out.
