Rumor: New Patent for PS Vita With Click-able Analog Sticks is Found

ps vita 09-15-14-1

We’ve learned (via Hachima) that a new PS Vita might be in the works.

A new patent from Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia was published on January 18th, and while there isn’t really much to go off of, it does seem like the potential new hardware does come with an upgrade of sorts.

The most noticeable featured listed in the patent are “pushable analog sticks,” i.e. analog sticks that click just like in the traditional DualShock controllers.

Would you like to see a PS Vita with click-able analog sticks? Is this sort of feature too little, too late?
