As of March, Sony has not disclosed any plans for the PlayStation Meeting 2020 event. However, the latest PlayStation-related patent shows new gamepad features that the Xbox Series X may not be available for.
Sony is considering adding biofeedback to the controller to change the gaming experience, according to a new patent. The patent, invented by Respawn First, describes a sensor that allows the gamepad to measure the skin’s electrical activity (sweat secretion) and heart rate. Depending on the player’s biofeedback, the entire game experience may be changed. The patent also explains that biofeedback will be used to select from options without the user providing any input.
PlayStation cameras may also be used to capture user data. Sony also said the new gamepad feature “provides players with an immersive, highly interactive user experience” and may be best suited for virtual reality (VR) games. Of course, VR is one of PlayStation’s advantages over Xbox, and there have been rumours that Sony will launch PSVR 2 for PlayStation 5. 、
According to another patent, VR fans may get a whole new control handle. The control handle in the patent diagram looks completely different from the current PlayStation Move control handle. The control handle has a built-in sensor that detects the movement of the user’s hands and fingers, and the strap allows the user to hold the handle to the hand to ensure that the user does not drop while playing VR games. Any timely feedback on the handle can be translated into instant operation on the screen. The control handle also has physical buttons that may be required to trigger movements that do not follow hand movements.
