Sony expands emotion-sensing plans with new patent for games that know & adapt to your feelings

From Xfire: "Imagine a PlayStation that could sense and react to gamer's joy, frustration, or boredom."

Great so my console is going to be depressed and anxious 24/7

Seraphim4d ago

come now Fox, we all know you also have bouts of enjoyment while playing some games. Therefore it's not all depression and anxiety, just 90% that. ;P

No, when it knows you are depressed, then it would cheer you up, to keep gamers in a good mental state.

Is Peter Molyneux working for Sony now?

No, thanks. I want to play games, not to be a lab rat for your experiments.

technically this could be used to enhance games. Struggling with something and just broke your controller. We see you, dial down the difficulty to noob so you can finally have that dopamine rush of excitement which comes from finally beating that boss...

I mean, I agree, no thanks, but patents like these tend to be rather premature and something that wouldn't come to fruition for a few+ more decades. Proof of concept and trademark so others can't capitalize on the idea... Even then, it did come to fruition it still requires the player to have a camera in their room or a headset on. Long as they don't force something like this similar to what XB did with Kinect then to each their own I suppose. It's a hard pass for me though, and if they tried to force something like this on a PS console, see ya later PS.

Turn up. I'm ready. Let's open the flood gates, I'm in a hurry to some something "actually crazy" in gaming.
