I love patents as they can show what could be coming our way. Made public on November 1, 2018, it looks like Sony has filed a new patent US20180311571A1 that will “allow for a controller for interfacing with a Virtual Reality system. The controller will have a proximate end and a distal end. The handgrip portion of the body is disposed at the proximate end of the body. The extension portion has a loop shape. A plurality of lights is disposed on the surfaces of the extension portion, such that lights illuminate on the inside of the loop shape and on the outside of the loop shape. ”

This is very interesting, but what is also interesting is the diagram of the PlayStation VR headset and how it will incorporate with everything. Does this mean that a new model of the PlayStation VR will be more of an internal upgrade rather than a design one? To me at least, the design is awesome. But if you notice it also refers to cloud gaming and also new controls that look like the Move controllers, but with a thumbstick which would make an amazing difference when it comes to movement.

But all this is really interesting and with the PlayStation 5 coming, only Greatness Awaits…
