In the world of digital assistants, it seems Sony is working on one that is being designed specifically for the PS5 called “PlayStation Assistant”. According to the United States Patent Office, the feature will be used to identify player engagement to generate contextual gameplay assistance.

In short, what this means is that the feature will use AI to monitor a player’s activity on the console be it during gameplay or other media consumption and the console will provide feedback and assistance with the tasks and even gameplay. This feature is detailed to provide assistance within a video game where the user may have problems.

The present disclosure describes methods and systems directed towards identifying player engagement to generate contextual gameplay assistance. User gameplay information is monitored so that the user can be provided assistance within the video game where the user may have problems. User gameplay information is monitored in order to identify what type(s) of assistance could be provided to the user. The information can be based on the current level of frustration of the user with the video game.

The feature kind of sounds like a personal gaming coach to a certain degree. It is still unclear how this will be implemented. Will developers need to have the feature coded into their games in order for it to pop up at certain spots or will the Sony PlayStation Assistant on the PS5 use some fancy AI to determine an issue?

Of course, if the feature is real on the next-gen PlayStation console then Sony will no doubt give you the option to turn it off if you don’t want to be assisted during gameplay. Sometimes working something out is better than having your hand held, right? We can see how this feature will come in handy for kids and new gamers who could be stuck in specific spots.
