Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently patented a system and method which could revolutionize the way we stream content. This new system lets you launch a game from streaming media and stores information associated with the media. It could be a massive step in the evolution of video games and streaming content.
This new technology is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 16/679,795 filed Nov. 11, 2019 and issuing as U.S. Pat. No. 11,213,748, which claims the priority benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 62/929,638 filed Nov. 1, 2019.
Sony's patent deals primarily with content streaming and gameplay launch at a media scene of the streamed content. This technology could be a great way to play video games without actually playing the game. It would give gamers the option to watch a movie version of a game title and still get the story or experience the game without taking the time to actually play the game. It could also be used for interactive movies where the viewer can choose different paths and make different choices that could affect the outcome of the movie.
How does it work? The patent describes a system with trigger points associated with game data. When a trigger point is selected, the game data is identified and the game can be launched. This way, the viewer can choose when they want to start playing the game, and when they want to go back to the movie. This could be a great way to watch a movie and still get the experience of playing a game.
This technology could be used in different scenarios. For example, a streaming service could offer different versions of the same movie, each with a different type of gameplay. This way, viewers can choose what type of game they want to play while watching the movie. It could also be used to create interactive movies, where the viewer has the option to choose different paths or make different choices that affect the outcome of the movie.
Sony's new system could revolutionize the way we stream content, but it is important to remember that this is just a patent. There is no guarantee that this technology will ever make it to the market. Therefore, it is important to understand that this article is written in terms of what “might” be possible or “could” be possible with this technology.
Sony Interactive Entertainment has been a leading innovator in the gaming industry for decades, and this new system could be another example of that innovation. This technology could be a great way to experience games in a unique way, and could be a great addition to the streaming content landscape. It remains to be seen if this technology will ever make it to the market, but it is certainly an exciting development and one to keep an eye on.
