Sony has a newly published patent that could be for a new PlayStation Move controller for the PS4.

As you can see it looks similar to the current motion controller, except this version is flat in design and also features a touchpad in its centre much like the touchpad that’s now found on the PS4 DualShock 4 controller.

The only reason we’re taking this with a pinch of salt is that the new DualShock 4 controller now comes with that light in the front of the controller which can be spotted by the PS4. So it seems like the PlayStation Move controller is a bit redundant now, especially on the PS4. But of course it could be a cheaper way of getting more controllers out for group gameshow style games.

So let’s wait and see if anything new comes to market. But if it does we certainly won’t be seeing it in time for Christmas gameshow titles. Almost certainly.
