Imagine finishing a video game like Mass Effect and then having a personalized comic book generated featuring the decisions and tactics you used while playing. Apple has already imagined it, and they've got the patent application to prove it.
What's next? Patenting the thoughts in our heads?!
Screw Kotaku, and PLEASE don't submit any of their FAKE NEWS, they are "NOT RELIABLE & TRUSTWORTHY" !!!
save my minds on facebook automatic xd
Umm... OK. It's another of those "Cool... but, why?" things.
Agreed. Interesting tech, but why would I want to read a comic book summary of the game I just played?
Another unnecessary thing from Apple. Just like iPad. The thing doesn't even have flash capability yet people buy it for 600 bucks. If they ever do something like this and a company uses it I'm refusing to buy that game.
Cool for nerds
Patents like these are the reason you have lawsuits left and right in the video game's industry (well, absurd patents, combined with the huge amount of money the video games industry generates, which will attract the vultures trying to make a quick buck). Some dev or company makes a new product, then months or years later (give the product time to become profitable and gain recognition, you know) *bam* some asshat shmuck comes out and says it's a patent infringement on something he filed years ago... but didn't do anything with--and he just realized now that someone else was ripping him off, months or years after it's been profitable for them. Fuck off litigators, and take your retarded patents with you.
Too many lawyers.
