Sony has filed an application with the US Patent Office for a device that appears to connect a wireless PS3 Sixaxis controller to the bottom of a PSP.

SCEA representatives were not available for comment.

It is not clear if the interface is intended to allow games requiring two analog controllers to be playable on the PSP, or if the interface will be used to incorporate specific PS3 game features such as a rear-view mirror or radar via the PSP.

The recently-announced smaller PSP model will feature a digital output, allowing UMD games to be viewed on a television screen, opening up even more possibilities for PS3-PSP connectivity.
