Interactive PlayStation Doll Patented, Will Connect With PS3, PSP

Patent applications can be a terrific way of getting an early glimpse at what Sony is cooking up in their vast R&D laboratories, providing a first look at the Vita’s back touch panel, and at the PlayStation Monitor. This time, the US Patent Office has revealed something incredibly different – a PlayStation controlled interactive toy.

But cool.

I love that it can cry, haha.

fear882522d ago

I think its kinda scary looking. Hopefully thats all it can do because if it ever picks up a knife, I am reaching for my boomstick.

doctorstrange2522d ago

Can make other people cry too.

BigWoopMagazine2522d ago

liquid release? well, as long as its tears and not urinating on us like that one baby doll I remember coming out in the 90's. Even as a kid I knew that was some weird stuff right there.

BigWoopMagazine2522d ago (Edited 2522d ago )

hahaha, that's pretty much what I was talking about, but I don't remember the commercial I saw showing the baby with that much anatomy... but song dubbed over at the end is awesome.

Edit: I think we just found where the line should be drawn on realistic gaming...

spectyre2522d ago

@fear88 You mean something like this?

DaTruth2522d ago (Edited 2522d ago )

I'm still waiting 3 years for the PS-AIBO robotic dog that's suppose to be able to plug into your PS3 and follow you into PSHome, while also be controllable from the PSP, that you can use to see through his eyes!

I'm not holding my breath for this... even if I wanted to play with a doll!

SilentNegotiator2522d ago (Edited 2522d ago )

I hope you don't stick a motion wand in their rear like that Wii baby.

lol, man that is creepy.

DarkTower8052522d ago (Edited 2522d ago )

When I read the article I thought of the evil doll from the early ps3 commercials, especially when it said a tear reservoir.

It only looks pretty cool because it has the Sony name attached to it. Imagine the trolling if Nintendo had created this.

Focker4202522d ago (Edited 2522d ago )

I would say I'm not surprised. All of them are gearing towards the casual market. Kids are a huge potential userbase and it would only make sense to target that demographic.

This is clearly 100% aimed at children and there is nothing wrong with that. Kids love toys, and what better than to have an interactive toy. I think its an excellent marketing strategy for Sony.

I can see where you are coming from with the whole 'Sony" thing. But its a completely different situation. In no way will Sony target anything but children with this. Whereas with Kinect Microsoft were constantly talking about how hardcore it was and that there would be games for the hardcore fanbase. Yet all they've released are casual games.

I think its a very smart idea and it doesn't matter who came up with it. They aren't trying to target the hardcore with this. And I see no problem with that.

Its not aimed at anyone on this website, so why is everyone getting their panties in a bunch?? Its not aimed at you, it doesn't concern you, just chill out and forget that it even happened. Of course you will think its stupid because you aren't a child.

LadyGaga2522d ago

This product, if it ever sees release, is insanely stupid. Do you have any idea how advanced kids are getting these days? This product is essentially a doll. Boys don't play with dolls, and girls don't play video games. This product has no audience.

DaTruth2522d ago

I don't think Playstation division is making this the center of their strategy going into the future!

@LadyGaga

Sorry man, anytime I see Lady Gaga, I think of ace ventura & that line "Einhorn is Finkle" - http://www.youtube.com/watc...

blackburn102522d ago

No, if Nintendo created this every Nintendo fanboy would buy 10 million of them and say that Nintendo innovates and how Microsoft and Sony will find a way to copy them. Nintendo can do no wrong remember? Fanboy rule number #1

SilentNegotiator2522d ago

Which is why they have plenty more disagrees than agrees, right? Because N4G is just DROWNING in them sony fanboys.

LadyGaga2521d ago

The N4G forums have 270,000 posts in the PS3 section, but only 83,000 in the Xbox and Nintendo sections COMBINED. Now, not all of the Sony fans on this site are fanboys, some are very reasonable posters. But, as you can cleary see from the those previous numbers, we can assume that there is a very disproportionate number of Sony fanboys to Xbox/Nintendo fanboys - possibly double the amount.

monkey nuts2521d ago

Lady G, the thing with numbers is they can be spun to paint very different pictures. The vast amount of posts in the ps3 section could be attributed to 360 fanboys trolling, hence the inflated post count. Just saying.......

The new breed of EyePet??

-Alpha2522d ago

Maybe, but to my knowledge a patent means nothing as companies patent many things all the time

ftwrthtx2522d ago

Wow!

What else can I say, but wow? Pretty creative.

king dong2521d ago

lol leave it out! do sony fanboys on n4g get paid to say this sort of rubbish??

incredible

LordStig2522d ago

it should be a sackboy.

SweatyFlorida2522d ago

That's what I was thinking, or Crash Bandicoot at least, that thing looks creepy!

Godmars2902522d ago

Real Doll 3.0 will be announced and released three months after this "toy" is.
