Shortly after the announcement of a new partnership between PS5 and Discord, a patent filed by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The document was actually deposited in the registers of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization – World Intellectual Property Organization) already in the course of 2019, but only now has it found such diffusion as to capture the attention of the videogame community. The patent features a particular solution aimed at support players in difficulty with the advance within a particular title available on console PlayStation.
Instead of making attempts or seeking advice in a dedicated guide, the technology covered by the document would instead allow Sony users to receive help directly from a “expert“. The service, dispensed in real time, would arrange to put in direct communication player and assistant, with the latter who could thus offer the user useful tips to identify a correct path, overcome a Boss, unlock a skill for his character or more.
A certainly suggestive solution, but which for the moment has not found concrete application on PlayStation 5. After all, patents do not always find concrete use, but you never know: in case of a possible future implementation, you would use this technology on PS5 ?
