PS4 Elite controller could be in the works – report

Sony could be working on an elite version of the PS4 controller, according to a series of new patent listings.

First reported by Push Square, the patent in question has been available for a while now, but has since been refiled by Sony.

The patent displays what appears to be a Dualshock 4 controller with additional paddles and customisable features, much like the Elite Controller for Xbox One.

Sony suddenly revising the patent suggests that the device is currently in development, and could be due for a reveal in the near future.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Sony had plans to launch a shiny new controller alongside the PS4 Neo later this year, which will upscale a number of games to 4K.

Microsoft’s elite controller for Xbox One has been well received since its release, giving players an abundance of unique ways to adjust thumbsticks, d-pads and more on the device.
