It seems that Sony also wants to be part of the current trend of smart devices assisted by virtual assistants, or at least that is what recent reports suggest.
Nowadays, it is increasingly difficult to find gadgets or devices without built-in digital assistants. Now even TVs and other home appliances provide us with such help if we need it. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that Sony intends to choose a similar path for its new generation console, namely PlayStation 5, which we expect to see next year (like its largest competitor Xbox Scarlett).
At least, this is what the patent application, which was found and published by one of Twitter users, Daniel Ahmad says - the Japanese company is planning a solution called PlayStation Assist. And although we're actually dealing with a digital assistant for the console, it will work slightly differently than we are used to. Instead of informing us about the weather outside the window or saving reminders, this one will help us rather while playing.
As can be seen from the description in the patent application: For example, when players get stuck on some part of the game, they can ask for help by asking. The query can be in any format or a combination of different formats, such as audio, video or text. The game assist server is configured to match the query with model responses, based on the current context of the game from which the query originates.
Shortly, the PlayStation 5 assistant will replace Google and the arduous search for answers on the web, especially since it will be specially designed for this purpose. Or rather it can replace, because as it happens with patent applications, they do not always turn into real solutions, although it can not be hidden that this promises to be extremely interesting. So there is nothing else to do but wait for official information from Sony, and since there are more and more reports on the network suggesting that the company will bring the PlayStation Experience party back to life, this may soon be the perfect opportunity.
