Sony Patents Bizarre Move Controller Holder

Reinventing the wheel

Sony hasn't released quite as many plastic add-ons for the Move controller as some may have expected, but according to a patent found by PlayStation Lifestyle it could yet release a very versatile-looking plastic shell.

The patent shows a plastic housing into which the Move controller would slot, but with handles and face buttons turning it into something more like an enormous DualShock 3. At first glance it looks like a normal steering wheel accessory, but it's adjustable to turn into — wait for it — handlebars. You know, for all those Move-controlled biking games.

Sony filed the patent in April 2011 and without many Move-enabled driving games on the way we'd have to say there's not a huge chance this'll see the light of day. Then again, the patent should last for 14 years, so we may see it resurrected in some form for PlayStation 6.

I don't see bike handlebars, I'm thinking "Last Starfighter" flight and firing controls. I guess it could also be an airplane yoke but where's the fun in that?
I have to admit some of my favorite Wii mini-games are the jetski ones using the Wiimote and nunchuck to steer. Thanks to Sony's cheapskate Nav controller we don't get those on the PS3, maybe this is a way to rectify that?
I want to see a video w/ everybody's favorite VP using this - zip, zing, boom!

It looks like the perfect weapons-grade human-propelled aerial gaming peripheral.
