But whether this will become a reality.
A new patent filed by Sony shows a technology that will engage the audience Virtual Reality content.
According to an IGN report, in October last year, the PlayStation Giant proposed a tip called “Integrate Audience Participation Content into Virtual Reality Content”, but it was first released yesterday (Thursday, January 28) and detailed People who don’t wear virtual reality headsets will be able to change the game world in the VR field.
This does sound like the cornerstone of some interesting multiplayer gaming experiences, and-in fact, it is very similar to Mix Play, which enables viewers to influence the game being played on streaming on the Microsoft Mixer service.
It is worth noting that patents are not products. These are just ideas that the company already owns and wants to lock in so that they don’t lose out to others. In other words, it may never be the real world.
Sony launched PlayStation VR in 2016 and seems to be committed to virtual reality as a technology. Games like the recently released “Hitman 3” still support VR on PS4, and the patent filed in September 2020 indicates that Sony may be considering introducing inside-out tracking for future PlayStation VR hardware.
Since Sony first introduced a VR headset, virtual reality has come a long way. Valve’s Index VR and the latest products such as Oculus and HTC are much more advanced than the first wave of modern virtual reality hardware in 2016.
