    For some kind of "Dual Screen" device. I wonder where they got that idea.

    New Sony patent means new Sony patent drawings. Sadly, they ain't that funny.

    'And we shall call it the PSP:BS (BrickShitter)! Brilliant! And oh so new!'

    man i thought patent drawings were supposed to be all crazy in depth and such

    this basically amounts to "okay it's a foldy thing with two screens, one for input, one for display, maybe some buttons on the side"

    Actually, Sony's detailed patent drawings are rather inspiring me to get some patents of my own, so I've invented this thing:

    I'd go through it with you guys, but it's so self explanatory I'd probably just be insulting your intelligence.

    We should bug Sporky to change the OP so that we get all this crazy fun all over again with the new Sony patent.

    I didn't see this posted elsewhere already but... now there's this gem.
    Sony filed for an interesting patent in 2010 that shows it has technology that resembles Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U game console. Titled Position-Dependent Gaming 3-D controller, and Handheld as a Remote, the patent shows that the game company is at the very least interested in a controller or mobile device with a built-in display to be used as an input device for a console game.

    The concept is similar to the Wii U, which was unveiled at E3 last year. The device shows objects onscreen and interacts with the objects on the television while acting as a controller. It suggest that the next-generation game consoles will embrace touchscreen tablets in a big way.

    Below is a description of how the device is supposed to function:

    Methods and systems for using a position of a mobile device with an integrated display as an input to a video game or other presentation are presented. Embodiments include rendering an avatar on a mobile device such that it appears to overlay a competing user in the real world. Using the mobile device’s position, view direction, and the other user’s mobile device position, an avatar (or vehicle, etc.) is depicted at an apparently inertially stabilized location of the other user’s mobile device or body. Some embodiments may estimate the other user’s head and body positions and angles and reflect them in the avatar’s gestures.

    The device is position-dependent, and the application only describes it as a “mobile device,” so it’s difficult to know whether it’s a handheld such as the PlayStation Vita or a separate game controller designed for a future console. Still, it’s only a patent application, and Sony may only be covering their bases for future control possibilities.

    It has been said in the past that the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 combination can do what Nintendo’s Wii U can do. Perhaps Sony was way ahead of us on that one.

    Nah, I just don't know if that new stuff has the same potential. If anything it should have its own new thread, but I doubt it will be quite the same.

    I mean, notice we tried this a couple of times before in the last couple pages.

    But I love this thread and hope someday it gets properly archived.
