Sony Patents New AI Assistant for the PlayStation 5

February 08, 2020 / Jeff Yeung

A newly published patent from the World Intellectual Property Organization reveals that Sony is planning to research and develop an artificial intelligence assistant for its upcoming next-gen console, the PlayStation 5. Similar to Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri, the AI will jump in and help gamers when they’re stuck on a particular level or boss, offering various resources such as tips, upgrades, or even downloadable content. “Often, there may be an in-game resource of the game environment that could aid the user in accomplishing the objective with the character,” the patent reads. “The in-game resource may be downloadable content (DLC), add-ons, upgrades, items, tips, strategy, communal data, etc. However, the user is not necessarily aware that such a resource exists.”
