Intel may be working on their own video game controller. A recently released patent shows that the Intel controller appears to be designed after PlayStation’s DualShock 4.
Picked up by familiar face LetsGoDigital, the patent was officially filed by Intel Corporation back in May, 2018. The document was published on November 19th, 2019.
The Intel controller is definitely an intriguing design. Its body appears elongated from the DualShock but features many of the features from Sony’s GamePad.
Bottom-placed analogue sticks are present, traditional button placements are there, and so is PlayStation’s iconic DualShock 4 touchbar.
What is different are the bumper and triggers. Opting for a diagonal placement – which should follow the fingers’ natural placement – the buttons also appear shallower.
With Intel leaning heavily into the recently announced Tencent Cloud Streaming, Intel’s GamePad could be used for the variety of cloud gaming services that the tech company has a hand in.
From Tencent’s streaming service to Google Stadia, Intel’s technology is all over the upcoming slew of streaming services.
