With mobile gaming becoming the next big thing in the gaming ecosystem, Sony is looking to sink its teeth in by introducing controllers that can easily work together with smartphones.

This news came around from a recently designed patent that showed a controller similar to the Ps 4 which could be attached with a smartphone.

According to the patent picture shown above, it seems that the particular controller can be split into 2 halves and then reattached once you connected your smartphone. It is rumored that this will be carried out magnetically and that the control will be connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth.

This particular controller is a clear sign that Sony is seeking to capitalize on the growing mobile gaming markets such as in countries like China where the esports community is huge.
