    I don't see how this would be any issue, or problem.

    Mr. Steve Jobs (RIP) must be turning in his grave. How dare Apple deviates from touch only games in his absence.

    Probably not. Most likely, they saw a controller that looked like a Sony controller and decided to post the "Apple copies" threads.

    I didn't wanna be too specific mynd lol. Keefy started the "solution" by asking if anyone actually read the filing; figuring someone in "charge" here would actually read the filing and get rid of this from the front page of PSU, and lock the thread after replying about what the filing was actually about.

    It's too bad the integrity of the site is, well, lost? Someone will need to help me come up with a better word that fits.

    As mentioned, this patent is about NFC. In patent drawings you are supposed to use generic drawings for objects unrelated to your patent this is done so the people on the patent office can easily detect your implications. The controller looking like a DualShock has absolutely nothing at all to do with any current or future plans by Apple to release a game controller similar to the DualShock or otherwise...

    I also vote for this article to be removed, very embarrassing.

    Read more about it here: http://www.patentlyapple.com/patentl...ames-more.html

    You guys recently asked the members to spread the word of PSU via social media, this is why I don't. I'd look like an idiot if I linked someone to this site and they saw this article.

    There is only so many ways you can make an ergonomic controller.
    Trophy-licious!

    This doesn't have anything to do with them actually making a ergonomic controller.

    I totally agree. I can't see how anyone that actually read the article could post this as Apple copying Sony
    I don't need no stinkin' signature!

    Maybe some people think innovation is "exclusive" to Sony.
