Looks like Sony may be up to something, two new patents recently showed up with a possible alternative to the traditional split screen view.

This may just be an alternative use for a 3D TV. Sony’s new patents cover creating two images on the same screen, which are filtered by glasses worn by the players. This could create a scenario where two players could be in the same room, with each seeing something different on the TV. The patents were actually filed a year ago, and just recently were published where the public might get a glimpse of them.
