Sony's new controller patent is um, interesting photo

If you've ever had the desire to play a game using a controller that vaguely resembles the Starship Enterprise, Sony may soon have you covered. Behold, a recent patent unearthed by GameInformer. Filed just this last month, the mock-up features the PlayStation Move centered between two adjustable handle bars.

Of course, it's just a patent and won't necessarily come to market. All the same, I'm going to speculate the hell out of what game it's meant for. Maybe some kind of Class-B vehicle driving simulator? SCHOOL BUS OF MURDER. "The wheels on the bus go DIE DIE DIE!" Coming to your console this fall.
