What Sony patents say is in the PS4 – the future tech making the next PlayStation


It’ll interrupt your game with ads

Oh PS4, we know you’re there, hiding around the corner somewhere like a cheeky scamp. However, details are locked down tight, so we’re relying on a couple of boring patent applications from the Big S to give us a glimpse of what PS4 might bring us. The first is dull, and outlines a method of advertising that would mean “suspending playing of the interactive content, displaying an advertisement, and resuming playing of interactive content”. This one sounds terrible, so we hope this never makes its way onto our games console.
