A new Sony patent dug up by TSA all but confirms the PlayStation Omni rumor we reported on earlier today, especially in light of the patent’s confirmation of motion technology being incorporated into the new controller, one we’re guessing is being forged for PS Omni.
The rumor claimed that PS Omni’s “controllers, whether it’s the Duo-Moves or the Classic DuoShock, will have pulse sensors in the grips for biofeedback gameplay.”
According to the patent, each half of the controller can also feature motion-sensing technology like a gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer. That’s on top of rumble, a speaker and analogue stick/button inputs.
There are similarities in there, and the rumor is on point with the integrated “sensor” portion.
Check out the patent through here. You’ll see the full breakdown.
