A new patent filed by Sony Interactive Entertainment has surfaced, and we are looking at the implications associated with PS5 and what may be added in future updates. This patent is a method of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, filed in September, but was not published until January 7. Like most patents, this new patent boasts the boring name “Putting User Information.” The game space, but the title of the patent is Snoozer, but the internal details are actually very interesting.
The patents are full of jargon, but the summary is a summary of the new technology Sony has been working on and is currently patented. According to the official abstract of the patent, this technology allows players to communicate with other game players in both text, image and voice formats via filtered messages. This allows players to leave notes and messages to other players at specific locations and during specific events. If any of this sounds familiar, it sounds like Sony just copied the Deathstrand.
“The generation, association and display of in-game tags is disclosed. Such tags bring an additional aspect of community participation to both single-player and multiplayer games. Through such tags, players Audio clips generated by filtered text messages and images, and other game players, including top-notch players, and placed at specific coordinates and / or in the context of specific events in the game space. Currently described. In-game tags and associated user-generated content allow for even more labeling. Based search on gameplay. “
For now, it’s hard to imagine how this technology will be implemented. Currently, management and filtering sounds like a nightmare, but as you can see, it seems that you’ll need an internet connection to access it, but it works in both single-player and multiplayer games.
For now, take all of this with a grain of salt. The patent is legal, but I’m not sure if this technology will be found on PS5 or PlayStation consoles. Companies like Sony are constantly applying for patents, many of which never evolve beyond the conceptual stage.
At the time of publication, Sony has not commented on this newly surfaced patent. In the past, Sony declined to comment when patents surfaced.
