PlayStation Patents Folding Sticks For Its Controls

play station: It is a system that allows the sticks to be hidden, although the patent, as is often the case, does not mean that it will come. In both the DualShock 4 and DualSense controls, for PS4 and PS5 respectively, the analog sticks remain in a fixed position, although it is possible to press them as if it were another button. utilities, play station has registered a new patent that draws attention to the fact that it proposes incorporating folding sticks into the steering. The description, quite technical, suggests that when it becomes reality, the height of these levers can be adjusted.

“A controller, a stick or a system that compresses the body of the stick,” they describe in the patent. This is a lever that attaches to this body and is configured to retract. According to the document, the body of the stick and handle can rotate freely around the center of the spindle, inside the controller. In other words, it would be possible to adjust the height of the sticks.

At the moment it is only a patent

The patent was registered on July 22, 2021, but was not published until January 13. While they point to the possibility of working on a new controller, many of these ideas never materialize into a real product. Therefore, this information should not be taken as an endorsement that: play station is going to market a controller with these characteristics.

The play station 5’s DualSense went a step further than the company’s previous controllers. It includes two technologies that were not present in the previous generation of consoles: on the one hand, the adaptive triggers, which affect the gameplay depending on the pressure we put on it; the second is haptic technology, designed to provide a more realistic type of vibration.

These functionalities will also be transferred to the control of play station VR2, a device that has recently revealed its technical characteristics, although no date or price has been announced at the moment.
