According to a patent that Sony has recently applied for, the new generation PlayStation consoles will provide the user with tips on the game they are playing to optimize the playing time. The new patent is claimed to be an extension of the AI-powered PlayStation, which has been rumored for some time.
We knew that Sony plans to develop interactive widgets for use in games to improve the PlayStation 5 experience. In order to play games on current consoles, you have to choose to play multiple games before installing a game and entering the match. It is said that this will change in new generation consoles and you can choose what you want to do directly from the user interface in the system without having to deal with in-game menus.
However, a new patent filed by Sony is crucial to show how far the Japanese tech giant can go. The patent provides a software solution that informs players about the average time required to complete their next task during the game. This solution will also make recommendations that could potentially optimize your playing time by using a particular resource. If you’re having trouble completing an episode, the console will give you tips and tricks.
Artificial footsteps on PlayStation:
All of this is connected to PlayStation AI (PlayStation Artificial Intelligence), whose rumor has been around for a while. According to this rumor, it will be a component similar to Alexa on PlayStation 5 and will be activated if the console asks for help when the player is deadlocked. It was stated that this application patent called PlayStation Assist was evaluated for PlayStation 4.
On the other hand, let us remind you that these patent contents are not always used in developing a product. It may not be such a project, but there is a possibility that game studios will not support such an application.
Sony is getting ready to come up with a brand new game console 7 years after the PlayStation 4 it launched in 2013. Sony plans to produce between 5 and 6 million PlayStation 5s in the fiscal year ending in March 2021. By contrast, PlayStation 4 sold just 7.5 million units in the first two quarters only. While the price considered for PlayStation 5 will be between $ 499 and $ 549, Sony is considering using existing PlayStation 4 models as a bridge to attract new users to PlayStation Network services.
