[GamingBolt] Microsoft Patents Detachable Controller For Mobile Devices

Microsoft looks to be crafting some joy con style controllers for mobile devices. It’s labeled as a charging device for removable input modules, and then goes on to specify it’s wireless input devices that can be removed from a charging dock to be put on mobile devices such as a smartphones.

Definitely seems like the intent here is to have a controller experience for xCloud on mobile devices, and with a similar idea to Nintendo Joy Con controllers on the Switch. That’ll be a welcome edition for those who are going into xCloud.

I could see streaming making a big dent in Switch sales since the Switch is not a high end device, the input lag could be less of an issue for a lot of Switch style games. Making a controller that turns your phone/tablet into a Switch-like gaming device sounds like a pretty good idea for Microsoft TBH. Bet Google wishes they had thought of that first for Stadia.
