Sony's upcoming gaming system has received a lot of attention for when it will be announced, but now it looks like some new details have been discovered regarding the console's controller.
According to a report from Silent Chief on Friday, a new patent filing from Sony Computer Entertainment of America has been uncovered, and it points to a new version of the Move controller.
A description of the controller points to, "determination of controller three-dimensional location using image analysis and ultrasonic communication."
The device will apparently be featuring new cameras or sensors in the remote that detect all of the movements with the controller.
This is not the first instance where talk about a new PlayStation controller has come up, as back in October of last year there was rumblings of a new controller that would be able to heat up and cool down a gamer's hands while playing,.
There are apparently heating and cooling bands within the Move controller that increase temperature in accordance with the action happening in the game.
An example of how this would work is while you are playing a shooter and your gun overheats, your controller also increases in temperature.
According to the patent, when a weapon in the game becomes too hot and is inoperable, the controller reflects the same effect until the weapon has cooled down.
"For example, as the weapon heats up, the controller light may change from a cooler color to a warmer color, such as from blue or green to orange or red. Similarly, when the weapon cools down, the color exhibited may revert to the cooler color," the patent reads.
Another example of how this feature could be used is when a player is searching for an object. The controller will get hotter as the player approaches the object and the opposite effect takes place, as the player gets further away from it.
"A user utilizes a controller to discover the presence of objects that are not visible on screen or otherwise known to the user.
"The user maneuvers the controller about his or her interactive environment, and receives thermal feedback, such as heating or cooling, indicating the presence of an object," the patent reads.
In addition to that, a December report surfaced that points to a PlayStation controller which will be able to act as a regular device and then break apart when necessary.
Sony is apparently going to be implementing a brand-new, hybrid DualShock controller that breaks apart and then has Playstation Move abilities and components in it.
Some of the components that appear to be inside of the controller include a magnetometer, accelerometers, gyros, vibration function and a speaker.
The device will supposedly require a camera and the system will be able to read whether or not the controller is split in two and then provide feedback to the player accordingly.
