Could be something to do with the shape changing polymers patent...
Gamasutra - Although the Sony patent, which can be examined in full at the United States Patent Office website, does not make specific mention of the devices application for a possible follow-up to the PSP, it does specifically describe the technologys use with a game controller.
A scenario is described where a user touches a control section of the controller with their fingers and the feeling of touch is controlled by the device. The example is given of a player being defeated in a fighting game, after which the controller becomes soft to improve the realistic sensations in the game.
