New Sony Patent
Haptic feedback is a new feature of the PS5 DualSense controller that allows players to feel various forms of feedback while playing a game.
According to a new patent from Sony Interactive Entertainment (which you can find at Patentscope), the company is also looking for ways to incorporate the technology into already recorded videos and streams.
In other words, gamers watching certain trailers or announcements on the PS5 could get an idea of how the feature will be incorporated into certain games.
We are curious to see whether the haptic feedback will prevail on a large scale. As with any new innovation in video games, how the developers use the option will matter.
It’s not uncommon for video game companies to apply for patents and then go unused, but it’s clear Sony wants haptic feedback to be a reason to buy the PS5.
The idea of using it in videos and streams is really interesting. However, it remains to be seen whether third party developers will be interested in taking advantage of the concept or not.
One company that keeps a close eye on the topic of haptic feedback is Microsoft. Earlier this year the company sent out a poll asking fans whether or not they would be interested in the technology being used on Xbox.
Of course, it’s still a little early to say how the fans will accept the haptic feedback. After all, since its launch, the PS5 has been extremely difficult to come by as scammers use bots. As long as the PS5 is not easier to find, PlayStation fans cannot test the function for themselves.
