SCE Patents Teddy Bear That Gets Sad if You Don’t Play With Him

It’s not easy being a teddy bear – you’re a child’s first love, cuddled every night, cared for like a pet. But then the child discovers electronics, video games, girls. You’re left to lie in the corner gathering more dust than a Wii. (PS3, Tech)

I'm a big fan of those types of movies like Superbad and stuff like that but Ted was kinda lame.

Saw Ted in the cinema & wasn't too impressed.
It only became bear-able when you've hit a few bongs of Afghanistan's finest.

*sorry for the sh1t pun*

Hug. You mean hug.

If they make a Sackboy version of that bear they'd probably have a hot holiday toy on their hands

A 'hot' holiday toy.

...God, I'm mature for my age.

Uh "hot" is the term always used to describe items that are much anticipated or selling really well

And you sure do look mature with an icecream cone as your avatar
360ICE  +   503d ago
Haha, yeah I know. It was a joke. Granted, a horrible joke.

"God, I'm mature" was just pointing out how stupid that joke was.

...but you somehow didn't pick up on that.

Ever heard of sarcasm, people ? :P

Agreed. What a terrible, terrible film.

Pedo bear want this to happen.
knifefight  +   503d ago
That was my first thought too.

I think you've had enough, Sony. Go home and sleep it off.
SilentNegotiator  +   503d ago
Sony's engineer team throws together another patent.

People act like it's releasing tomorrow in place of Uncharted 4.

Happens every week, it seems.
momthemeatloaf  +   503d ago
Sony wants that Wii crowd
Dark5tar1  +   503d ago
So its like ROB or Ted?
i_da_pappy  +   503d ago
How about a PS3 that screams in agony when it's dying? Lol j/k.
Conzul  +   503d ago
OMG I just visualized that! ROFL!

Rockefellow  +   503d ago
Please, no. I'd be in an insane asylum after my third PS3 broke a few weeks ago.
Y_5150  +   502d ago
My PS3 did that once...Freak me out in the middle of the night.

Makes me think of the movie AI personally--but I thought the same thing as well. I had one when I was growing up ;)
cannon8800  +   503d ago
Artificial Intelligence is an epic movie. Never gets old too.
Eldyraen  +   503d ago
I'd buy one and make it face a corner just to watch it cry--is that wrong?
JonnyBigBoss  +   503d ago
Oh god I want one!

If made in conjunction with a kids game with enough depth and content, I can see this being a hit with kids if advertised correctly.

Of course the bear or anything they deem more marketable would have to be bundled with the game at a reasonable cost.

On top of that, if they make more versions of the "bear" with different personalities, both outside and through the game and sell them like those Skylanders game, it might be a hit for them.

Children should not be taught to hug bears anyway. Unless you're on Fulsom Street.

I liked Ted a lot too.

But this patent... this seems kind of creepy. Especially the thing about following your gaze- when I was little I used to be scared at night that my stuffed animals were watching me.

If you ignore it long enough it starts telling kids to murder their parents and everyone getting in the way of playing with it.
TemplarDante  +   502d ago
A Teddy like the bear in that movie A.I :)
Awesome! I would train it to kick a Nintendo fanboy in the nuts everytime articles relating to how "the Wii U CPU is slow and it doesnt matter" make it to the front page. The evolution of Eye Pet meets Tamagotchi meets Chucky the Goodguy doll in the making! lol

EDIT: this is actually the second patent for a doll/teddy like this. There was one dated 2011 and 2012.

I hope they don't have "in game" friends lol first think I thought of when reading this was the old Microsoft buddies that sat there and annoyed the hell out of you in Office, unless you were wasting time messing with them.

On a row of tests and being busy, I don't want my video game console making it even worse by feeling neglected haha

Pedobear version, anyone?
