Last week, Sony Interactive Entertainment filed a patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for a technology “related to games and gameplay and used to identify user-generated content”. According to the patent, the company introduces a feature called “scene tagging” to user-generated content in relation to game information.
With this feature, users will be able to access specific content from other users by searching for tags and metadata used in conjunction with video recording or screenshots. In a way, players will be offered a comprehensive social sharing space.
In the patent disclosure, “Example user-generated content includes video footage or screenshots of events occurring in the game. The corresponding metadata is then retrieved from where the recording or screen image is taken, who is included in the user-generated content, and which user-generated content will be used to identify key aspects of user-generated content, with details, such as where objects are located. ” phrases.
The technology is similar to a more advanced version of PS4’s Share system. It allows the user to take game images and upload them online via the console or share them directly with other PlayStation friends. However, what distinguishes the new technology from the previous one is that it can edit the captured image more extensively and that other users can discover the experience of different users through the PlayStation network.
The PS5 will be released later this year, and Sony is working with Xbox Project Scarlett on different areas to compete outside the hardware.
