A new patent application from Sony could show a new way to automatically log into your PS5 , simply by taking your controller.
When I first heard about this patent, I was wondering if Sony was planning to build more biometric sensors in PS5 that could pick up things like fingerprints. There is no mention of this type of specially designed identification technology in the patent. Instead, the system becomes familiar with how much movement a controller has and in what way when it is.pte, and then automatically associates this information with a user.
The patent also describes how a game console could also use the controller's built-in haptic feedback to move the controller itself and then measure user response. In addition to movement, information associated with each user may include button presses. This could create a hybrid motion code and button press system that would probably go a lot faster than typing in a password manually each time while still providing some degree of security (at least on a per console basis).
As with any patent application, there is no guarantee that Sony will ever put this particular idea into any of its products. We still have a lot to learn about the PS5, however, and a new way to connect would be good news. Get the best PS5 deals before everyone else!
