Sony and its patents are indivisible. However, we learn a lot from them.
Comicbook revealed the fresh Sony Interactive patent, which we will quote: „A video game sharing method and system enable users to share playable video game segments with users so that the users can view the video game segments or interactively play the video game segments,” reads a summary of the patent. “When shared, state information for the video game segments is included such that the users begin in the same position with the same relevant statistics. By enabling video game sharing, user enjoyment and video game popularity are increased.”
In other words, it will allow us to share our demos and tutorials via the PlayStation Network. Something similar will be part of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’s October 29 update, which we previously discussed in detail. In short, it will allow players to showcase their decent combos and special moves to other players in similarly recorded tutorials. If the PlayStation 5 DOES end up using it, the Xbox Series X will have to come up with something similar. It would explain why the Share button on the DualShock 4 will be the Create button on the DualSense, though.
Meanwhile, on Reddit, a user shared some details about the DualSense controller, which then got deleted, but it got archived, and we linked that. He also shared a video to prove that he does have a prototype DualSense controller, which we hope wasn’t created by a simple 3D printer.
„The D-Pad and the main buttons feel similar to the DualShock 4 with no differences overall. However, the touchpad does feel more responsive and clicky. The triggers are interesting: the L1 and R1 don’t click, they push down as they’re triggers. The L2 and R2, however, felt harder to push down than normal, even without the tension points activated. The battery life averaged around 3 to 4 hours more than the DualShock 4. The DualSense is much more comfortable than the DualShock 4 (as well as the Xbox One controller) and less bulky overall. The LED bar is much dimmer than the DualShock 4’s lightbar. The PlayStation VR won’t support this controller due to not having a lightbar. They didn’t get to test the haptic feedback and the microphone,” the post says.
Nothing is official of this post, though. The PlayStation 5 Standard Edition and the Blu-ray driveless PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will launch this Holiday season.
