Sony has filed something to prevent lag switch cheating in games! Check out the patent description, as well as what lag switching is in the article.
is that a xbox 360 controller?
Yeah. That's definitely an Xbox 360 controller.
Dirty Xbox cheaters!
Bet Bungie already has tech in place, this stuff made its big appearance in Halo 2.
I don’t understand em. Play the game learn from your mistakes
Because winning in video games for some people validate their social existence. And as a human trait, our desire to be socially relevant outweighs morality and ethics. In manifest in a win at all cost outlook. Its pathetic in short.
Don't get too excited...having a patent doesn't mean they have a product or are even developing it yet.
also add that you dont have to file a patent to actually bother to detect and get rid of cheats from a closed network...
Yay, good stuff
Thanks for the good news! - Jonah Jameson.
Sony is on a roll with all these patents.
Yeah I was going to say that, this is like the 3rd one, 4th if you count the VR one. More incoming its more evidence of a ps5. Calling it again next year is the ps5 people deal with it.
I don't know if that's true, but it's definitely possible. AMD recently confirmed Navi is on track for 2019 so from a manufacturing perspective it's certainly possible.
patents arent exactly cheap
first remaster by emulation and now this. PS5 looking good already
Its going to dominate next gen as usual.
As the gaming industry has shown us time and time again, things are not concrete, especially gen to gen. It's an easy prediction to make, but companies screw up all the time or make mistakes so to me it's silly to say that.
It has been seen Sony Playstation has always done well and dominated .. I see PS5 no different.. The amount of talents and creative freedom Sony devs has its huge.. Hence the quality exclusives with New IP popping in. Also Sony is investing alot on New IP and Exclusives .. Nobody is perfect, people learn from mistakes. Sony does takes risk most works few doesn't but they dont back out... They learn from each other.. Hence its leading.
Problem is PS5 is gonna be in the same arena as the Xbox One X in terms of power, and whatever Microsoft is cooking up is going to be on an entirely new level.
skull "Problem is PS5 is gonna be in the same arena as the Xbox One X in terms of power, and whatever Microsoft is cooking up is going to be on an entirely new level" Keep believing that .. lol! PS5 will be much more powerful then the X and only if scarlet releases around 2022 it will be better and much powerful than the PS5 if it releases around 2020 its gonna be same as the PS5 ..
Wait, it thought all of you Sony fans said upscale old games like on Xbox One aren't worth it? I'm so confused by your flip flopping
I thought xbox fans said resolution doesn't matter, prior to one x.
Nobody said it wasn’t worth it, they said when it’s your main feature you are failing. It’s a nice feature but ultimately people want new games , something Xbox hasn’t done this entire generation
"Microsoft Studios VP Phil Spencer has defended Xbox One, saying gamers shouldn't focus on the numbers, but the experience. In the end, we play the games, not the resolution," Spencer said."
@jznrpg when was that ever the Xbox One's primary feature? With the X, the primary feature are higher resolution and framerates on 98% of all games released, minus the 2% exclusives on each
Yes, definitely good.
This is definitely good.
Dang i didnt know such a method existed for cheating.
People really still using these things?
Last time I heard of that, was when we played Socom!!
Yep my mate plays fifa and he gets screwed over online cause of it.
Sony on the ball right now
So that's COD finished, that game don't even have a lag switch but its compensation lag HELL.
Thank You Sony, Microsoft please follow
That is fucking spectacular!
Perhaps there was some merit to Sony being worried about cheating in regards to crossplay and proprietary cards?
Yeah it seem like Sony about to dominate another console gen with the ps5. I hope at least Microsoft try to put up a good fight against Sony next generation but they probably won't.
Microsoft may have something to say about Sony patenting an Xbox 360 controller battery pack.
Thumbnail shows a modified 360 controller proboly a lag switch
I've seen that in games before but didn't know what it was.
This is why you do server side hosting and not P2P. Lag switches dont work on dedicated servers. That should be your fix.
I knew it ! Damn lag switch cheaters.
Didn't know this was a thing. I just assumed my internet sucked lol
Why does this guy puts a picture of an xboxcontroller in a Sony patent?? To lazy to put a picture of a Dualshock in the article or he does not care?😜
most lag switches are not built into a controller... most are a cable and a button... most gamimng companies can detect lag switches, they just choose not to do anything about it... same goes for in game cheats and hacks... most just close a blind eye on it all...
