So the Sony VR glove patent that had the world abuzz a few days ago may not ever come out. Sony had a chat with Next Generation and said that the patent filing is simply part of what Sony has to do every time it comes up with a new idea. Just because it filed the patent doesn’t mean it has any intention of actually coming out with the device.
This really shouldn’t come as any surprise to anybody, since patents are filed all the time for stuff that never comes out. (Go to any Apple rumor site to see them pick apart the minutia of the patent du jour.) So thanks, Sony, for dangling that tasty steak in front of us.
