Gaming Giant Sony Files Patent to Enable NFT Transferability Across Games and Consoles

Entertainment and gaming giant Sony has applied for a patent to make non-fungible tokens (NFTs) transportable and useable between various games, devices, and consoles.

The patent filed last week states:

“[T]hat the digital asset may be utilized, via the NFT, across plural distinct computer simulations or across plural different computer simulation platforms. Ownership of the NFTs may also be subsequently passed to other end-user entities for their own use across different simulations and/or platforms.”

This essentially means that gamers may take their virtual possessions from one version of PlayStation to the next, as well as between computers, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and virtual reality/augmented reality headsets.

The patent claimed that the assets could be transferrable between different gaming ecosystems completely, saying:

“The standard format may be able to read the digital asset so that it can be used in different computer simulations, such as different titles of video games, [and/or] may be able to read on different video game platforms, such as PlayStation and Xbox.”

The digital assets might potentially be used outside of the Sony environment within “at least one computer simulation,” which could include “a cloud-based video game.”

It also said that computer simulations could include different annual editions of the same video game title, different video games from different game genres, or different runs of the same video game.

The assets may consist of a variety of different things, such as “video game abilities,” “in-game skins,” avatars, artwork, weaponry, and more.

The patent goes on to detail the features of recognizing certain attempts of fraud, which occur when users try to earn NFTs and other in-game assets by repeatedly completing particular stages or activities.

This is not Sony’s first attempt.
In the world of NFT, metaverse, and Web3, Sony is not a newcomer.

Sony Interactive Entertainment disclosed a patent that it had applied for back in 2019 in May 2021. The patent stated that the gaming company had patented its own eSports betting platform, which allowed users to bet on digital products or currency, including Bitcoin, with odds decided by machine learning.

Theta Labs (THETA), the operator of a blockchain network in South Korea, made an announcement in May 2017 stating that the new 3D NFTs had been designed to be used with Sony’s Spatial Reality Display, a display unit that featured a high-speed vision sensor that follows users’ eye movements to create 3Ds based on eye positions—without the need for eye-related accessories. This was the first time that an announcement of this nature had been made by a blockchain network operator in

Then in November, a patent filing revealed Sony’s vision for a system that could be used to track the creation, use, and transfer of NFTs as in-game assets. The filing was made for a system that could be used to track the creation, use, and transfer of NFTs as in-game assets.

Over this same time period, a number of other prominent mainstream companies have declared their own plans to grow into non-traditional financial instruments (NFTs) and crypto assets.

With the filing of three new trademarks in December of the previous year, investment behemoth Fidelity sent hints about its possible plans to expand its presence in the cryptocurrency and Web3 industries.

And just this month, reports suggested that the tech giant Amazon was getting ready to launch its new initiative to enter the NFT and Web3 space. This news came just this month.
