PS5: new patent could protect you from spoilers


from Dominik Zwingmann
Sony Interactive Entertainment has released a new patent to protect you from spoilers in games. Accordingly, the Playstation console should recognize various elements such as story, quests and items and hide corresponding content. It is not certain whether the feature will be used on the PS5.

A few days ago, a new one was created in the US Patent and Trademark Office patent released by Sony Interactive Entertainment, which could potentially save us from spoilers of all games in the future. A database has all the information of a title on history, quests, items, boss opponents and more stored and hides them when you surf the Internet with the console or use other functions. However, it is unclear whether the patent will be used on the PS5.

With the next-gen console, Sony would like to rely more on the creativity of the players with user-generated content. Among other things, the share button of the DualShock 4 was exchanged for a create button on the new DualSense controller. We do not yet know which functions are hidden behind it. However, it is clear that players will have more freedom in creating clips and screenshots. A new patent for user-generated content was published by the PlayStation company in November 2019.

Here, so-called scene tagging was introduced, in which gameplay videos and screenshots are provided with additional information. Below where the content was recorded in the game or which people and objects are in the material. Then players can specifically search for these things, for example to get help if they get stuck in a game. The latest rumors were that PlayStation 5 would be unveiled on June 4, 2020.
