Sony Interactive Entertainment is very excited to incorporate a wide variety of new technologies and features into the PlayStation 5 gaming console. It is possible that in the not-too-distant future, the company will make available to the community a unique system that will conduct a detailed investigation of player activity.
Toptierlist.net recently came across an intriguing patent that was filed by Sony, and it may indicate a new system for the PlayStation 5. As you are aware, many producers are dealing with a problem caused by toxic gamers, and it appears that the business wants to take action. A technology known as “Systems and methods of validating game activity” has the potential to clean the servers of many different productions.
It is proposed that the behavior of players of online games be analyzed, and then it would be decided whether the players’ actions are objectionable and should be punished, or whether the players’ actions are commendable and should be rewarded. The mechanic not only involves checking additional activities (like sending messages, for instance) but also the activities themselves while they are taking place in the game.
In this scenario, the reward could be in the form of virtual points, awards, or medals, whereas the punishment would be a restriction on the user’s access to certain functions; we have a sneaking suspicion that the individual in question would be locked out of the online game for a set amount of time. Because Sony is aware that these types of scenarios can occasionally call for additional verification, the system is designed to provide an appeal option. If the user chooses to exercise this option, the report will be personally examined by a moderator.
Although the patent was registered in September of the previous year, its contents were not made public until this week so that gamers might hit them.
The system that is currently being developed appears to be very comprehensive and well-thought-out, and as a result, it is very likely that the Japanese company will want to use it in the future to monitor the activity of players participating in official PlayStation tournaments or PlayStation 5, both of which are on the horizon.
