Sony patents DualShock/Move hybrid that breaks in two

Something about how it looks like testicles

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. 

The quirk with the “MoveShock” (you can have that one, Sony) is the fact that it can be split through the middle to create two separate handheld motion controllers. A PlayStation Eye camera would, naturally, be required for use with what Sony’s called the, “Hybrid Separable Motion Controller.” 

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. 

What do you reckon? It looks kind of cool at first glance, but then the more I consider actually using it, the more weird and awkward it seems. That said, I thought that of the GamePad and now I’m a big fan. Who knows how this would feel?
