Intel has been granted a patent on a new controller design.
The new gamepad shares similarities with other modern controllers such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One pads. It features a central pad, triggers and symmetrical joysticks.
After revealing its partnership with Chinese tech giant Tencent, the new controller will likely be used for the Instant Play streaming service the two companies are working on.
The new streaming service will rival Google’s new Stadia platform - which launched on November 19th - and Microsoft’s Project xCloud.
Following the revelation of this new partnership, Intel spoke to PCGamesInsider.biz. The company explained that cloud tech will increase how many people play games, and expand upon what titles can be created.
