Microsoft wants to convert your smartphone to your mobile device Xbox

New patent reveals Microsoft's plans to acquire Nintendo Switch

A new charging device patent indicates that Microsoft may be looking to turn your smartphone into an Xbox mobile game system.

While the patent (thanks to Digital Trends) does not relate to the smart controller itself, there are no specific references to Xbox consoles or brand in the documentation and charging system details of the "removable input modules" - including photos - certainly, look like a console Xbox controller for me.

The console itself is described as having built-in speakers, a headphone jack, and wireless headset support. 

It comes in two halves, each of which can wrap around your horizontal smartphone, and doesn't look completely different from the Nintendo Switch.

Designer of Yanko designs, Sarang Shith, even mocked up the 3D concepts of the device, using patents - which were filed last month - as a template.

"The controls are designed for immersive landscape games, with two fins that gently hold your phone but securely on both sides, while memory foam pads make sure no buttons are pressed," Seth said in a blog post on Concepts. "These side fins are perfect for non-bezel phones, as this ensures that the screen controllers don't overlap from the left or right.

"Based on patented designs, these conceptual Xbox Cloud consoles give us an idea of ​​what the real thing will be like," said Yanko designer, suggesting that these consoles may only be compatible with Xbox Cloud games.

Microsoft is not the only hardware developer who offers interesting patents, of course. A new patent for the PS5 has emerged that sheds some light on how the loading times on the PS5 will be significantly shorter than what they currently face on the PS4.
