A patented PlayStation feature allows players to pay to kick others from games

The described feature lets spectators vote to remove (or ‘bench’) players, send them messages to warn them to play better, or even pay to have them removed.

In the patent, Sony details a situation in which a number of spectators are watching a game (it specifically lists Twitch as an example of this).

According to the patent text and accompanying diagrams, spectators are then given access to a menu that lets them vote to have a specific player removed (or ‘benched’) from the game.

The diagram shows the spectator getting four options to choose from: ‘remove player from game’, ‘warn player to improve’, ‘provide custom message’ or ‘keep in game’.

Their vote is then collated with other viewers’ votes, and if the total number of ‘remove’ votes hits a certain threshold the player will be removed from the game.

Sony says “the method can also include animating the removal of the player and providing visual cues to other players or spectators as to why the player was removed from the video game”.

The patent gives examples of some variations on the process, including the possibility of using a spectator’s skill level to determine how much clout their vote has.

It also shows an alternative situation where spectators are able to pay to have a player removed, either with real money or in-game currency.

The example shown gives spectators another menu called ‘Player Removal Options’, where they can choose between ‘pay fixed price’, ‘pay percentage of fixed price’ or ‘bid in auction’.

Sony has been taking steps to have a more active role in eSports. In March it announced that it had teamed up with a new esports venture, RTS, to jointly acquire the Evolution Championship Series (Evo).

Absolutely zero problems with this.

Especially if booting someone or benching them comes with a “get good” message

This can honestly be super positive or super toxic idk about an in between

Not to mention, getting a patent doesn't mean it'll be used for anything more than suing somebody who "steals" the idea. Around 97% of patents are just sitting there waiting to be used in court, but never actually used to make a product/process.

I was one of the only ones to read the article I think

How did I fu*k the thread title up? It's a literal copy and paste from the website.

Thread title makes it seem like players in a match will be able to kick others.

Entire article only mentions that feature being given to spectators who are watching a stream like on twitch, says nothing about players.

So you and the original source fu*ked the headline up I guess. Gaming journalism isn't exactly Pulitzer prize winning stuff so it makes sense that they'd be creative and clickbaity

I didn't fu*k anything up, I didn't write any of it.

The source is Videogamechronicle, if you want to write them a strongly worded letter, their address is:

1981 Media Ltd
336 Wey House, 15 Church Street
Weybridge, Surrey
KT13 8NA
United Kingdom

I don't change titles like some others in these parts.

I'm good, I don't blame news outlets for posting clickbait headlines, it's the nature of the beast.

I just make sure to change them to be accurate when I repost to boxden if they're blatantly false like this one. It's very simple to do and stops me from looking like a lazy idiot who didn't read the article.
