New Sony patent suggest players can share PS5 game saves

A new Sony patent suggests that players will be able to share PS5 game saves and play states.

Discovered by, the patent (found here) details a system that allows one player to share a select portion of a game with another, much like Google Stadia’s Share State functionality.

“A video game sharing method and system enables users to share playable video game segments with users so that the users are able to view the video game segments or interactively play the video game segments,” the patent reads.

“When shared, state information for the video game segments is included such that the users begin in the same position with the same relevant statistics. By enabling video game sharing, user enjoyment and video game popularity are increased.”

The feature has yet to be detailed by Sony, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more. The PS5 is expected this holiday season.
