This can be a bit embarrassing for Apple. Apple has revealed a new patent for a gaming controller and it turns out the controller is pretty identical to a PlayStation DualShock controller. But, if this patent becomes a reality , it could mean that Apple will enter the Core Gaming Market.
The patent was originally filed for in March and the controller will be used with all of the Apple Gear as you would expect : iPhones, iPads and the Apple TV. Imagine Apple TV becoming a Gaming Console in the Future. Wow, that could prove to be a Serious Competition to the PS3 , Wii or Xbox 360.
Although the image above shows the controller having a cable, the patent details a wireless connection using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). Looks like the Gaming Companies might have some serious competition soon.
