The issue of patents in videogames is very particular, and it is that over the years we have been able to learn about a large number of these, some of which have later been translated into the most unique products or functions, and which have managed to surprise us all, while others went into oblivion, waiting for some executive decides to dust it off and implement itUnfortunately, sometimes this doesn’t happen. Even so, players do not learn and we will continue to be excited every time one of these is discovered, and today it is the turn of PlayStation, a company that over the years has offered us some of the best games in history.
As we have already said, and as the headline of this news also expresses, we are talking about PlayStation has registered a very particular patentwhich would allow you to capture emotions through voice chat, this being a very curious function, and that at first can make us raise an eyebrow.

Also, for many people this can feel like an invasion of their privacy, and therefore push them to use other tools to use voice chats, such as Discord, which is already available on PS5.
