A touchscreen on the controller could provide more opportunities for interactive feedback, such as displaying in-game stats, a mini-map, or current inventory, or even sharing video broadcast or showing incoming friend requests or invites.

While we are still days away from the actual Black Friday, a lot of retailers and platforms have already started offering these special deals.

Sony's Black Friday sales kick off on November 16 and will continue until November 26.

The patent describes a controller with a similar design to the DualShock 4 for the Playstation 4 but replaces the existing touchpad with a touchscreen. Shortly after Microsoft unveiled their Black Friday deals (including $100 off on select Xbox One X and Xbox One S models), Sony has followed suit.

Precisely what Sony would do with such a component is unclear, especially as the control pad on the DualShock 4 loses a bit of its appeal after a while.

Muslim women labourers objected, saying that as a non-Muslim, she should not touch the water bowl, and reportedly a fight erupted. According to the BBC, Bibi's husband has requested asylum in the United Kingdom , USA or Canada , saying the family is in danger.

A Marvel's Spider-Man 1TB PS4 bundle will cost $199.99, while a PSVR bundle including the likes of Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Creed: Rise To Glory will be discounted to $199.99.

"Regardless, not that many bundles sell before Black Friday, so it's unclear if this deal will last very long". The PlayStation VR has also been marked down to $200 / $250 CAN.

One has to ask though: How much would a touchscreen-equipped PlayStation controller cost?

Sony's PlayStation controller has mostly remained unchanged in all that times that it has been available and we are talking about a period of nearly over 20 years. It will begin airing on TV on November 16, 2018, but you can get an early glimpse of the horrific "winter wonderland" you can avoid by staying inside and playing on your PlayStation 4 instead. Near the end of Sony's reveal, a final statement reading, "Be sure to stay tuned for more details to be confirmed soon", hints at something more.
