A new patent from Sony has revealed a unique little idea that potentially hints at future PlayStation plans -- a hybridized controller that blends both the DualShock and PlayStation Move into one gestalt beast.

This particular patent was filed in May 2011, and made public in PDF format this week. As always, remember a patent is not a promise, so this is all hypothetical stuff.
