Patent: Sony handhelds could have PlayStation Move compatibility

A patent filed in November 2009, that has only recently surfaced showcases the interactivity of a PlayStation Move controller (yet to be released) and a handheld PSPgo looking device. The patent calls for a handheld or mobile device to be plugged into a dock for the controllers to work. While this idea sounds absolutely crazy based on how close you would have to be to see any of the actions on screen, it raises a decent point. If this portable has a TV-out option (allowing the display to be shown on a TV screen), and have the controllers linked together ala the PSPgo, it would mean that the portable could become a full fledged home console and replace, say a PS3. As it’s capable of playing games that would require motion controls. The patent also includes compatibility with 3D technology. It’s a cool idea, and something we may see on Sony’s next handheld.
