- PlayStation Patents Automated System to Detect Trolls and Disruptive Players in Multiplayer Games
Sony filed a patent application, which has now been published - as a WIPO publication.
This is not a patent in any country.
I wish sites like gamerant would get that distinction.ID: ho5qnvz
It’s not even a fair interpretation - it’s a false headline.ID: ho5vbqc
I really don’t believe that “reporters” from sites like gamerant actually know the difference.ID: ho5sqk8
Yeah most of those thread is just people reading the headline and coming up with their own conclusionsID: ho6dgha
Gamerant is such a trash.ID: ho6ju4q
As are other similar sites.
As always Sony filing a patent application doesnt mean anything or that anything will be implemented. It just means some engineers at Sony had an idea for something. The large majority of the time nothing happensID: ho5lenv
I remember when they patented a type of TV commercial where, in order to make the commercial end, the viewer would need to stand up and chant the name of the advertiser. So if you saw a commercial for McDonald’s, you would need to get up off your couch and shout McDonald’s for the commercial to end.
And the Bloodborne fan inside me hopes that Sony is only patenting these things so that other more malicious companies can’t use the ideas.ID: ho6aqky

Patents only last for like 20 years. There's still hope!ID: ho5u6ji
That’s some indoctrination nazi Shit right there
All they need to do is let it play R6 Siege for an hour and they’ll have all the training this system will need.
Sony patents don’t mean anything. At best we get a stability update…
Wings of Redemption would LOVE this feature!ID: ho5ksf1
He'll find a way to complain about itID: ho5lhkq
Look here, listen.ID: ho64agy
Ban anybody that knows what you saidID: ho697c9
Thats a sneak diss.ID: ho5neub
haven’t heard that name in a minute lmaoID: ho927gd
Oh my lorr
What does this mean? Is this for cheaters or just players being assholes?ID: ho8lcb6
It’s for example when someone intentionally throws a match by playing very poorly, idling etc
Honestly I don’t think such a system will ever be implemented because it would cause a shit ton of false positives, it’s very difficult to separate people who are just very bad at the game from people who deliberately throw a match
what about a patent for an automated system to detect scalpers from ruining ps5 from everyone?ID: hoadbfd
How about ebay and facebook just outright ban playstation 5 and series x listings? Would slap a lot of scalpers in the face and scare off plenty of future ones. I know its not foolproof, but it would get consoles into more hands
In my experience, autoban system always manage to ban innocent players at the same time.
While they can appeal and reverse, it cause frustration to innocent players.
This may not end up well.ID: ho5sj9k
Its not an auto ban systemID: ho5tf2m
Oh I thought it will detect trolls and distruptive players and ban them at the same time.
So it is only identifying and is down to human admin to do the ban? If that is the case it is pretty good.
Oh great. More automated permanent bans which PlayStation support "can't reverse" and "can't do anything about"ID: ho5nxdx
The patent doesnt say anything about banning players. Its more about dispersing disruptive players than anything else
The system's demographic data can also be used for automated matchmaking, too, by calculating the potential for disruptive behavior based on the players in a match. By doing so, the matchmaking system could then potentially disperse disruptive players in a way that minimizes the possibility of disruptive events.ID: ho5uca6
Lol matchmaking on being an asshole. That’s based
Yeah, after going through facebooks absurd AI moderations system of BS, I don’t encourage this.
If there is an automatic ban then they better make sure it is not permanent because you can't rely on playstation customer service to reverse it if it was a mistake.
“Banned? But I really am that bad at shooters!”
Yet another worrying patent from Sony, trying to psychoanalyze the players.ID: ho8k782
Sony has like a thousand patents they hardly use emID: ho8keka
Indeed but intent matters.
This is the Chinese social credit system built into games...
What we actually need right now is an automated system to detect citizens that must pick up that can.
Great if it works... awful if when it starts booting off innocent players.
