Sony's PlayStation Could Be Getting Its Own Digital Assistant

This is according to a recent patent discovered by Daniel Ahmad and shared on Twitter where it seems that Sony is considering its own digital assistant. This is based on a patent filing where based on the details, Sony could be considering calling it the “PlayStation Assist”. However, given that this is a console-related assistant, it won’t be like your normal digital assistants that will tell you the weather or set reminders.

Instead, it seems that this is a digital assistant that will help players in their games. According to the filing’s description, “For example, when a player gets stuck on a part of a gaming application, the player can request help through a query to a back-end game assist server. The query may be of any format, or a combination of formats, including audio, text, video, etc. The game assist server is configured to match the query to modelled responses based on a current game context from which the query was presented.”
