Application: Game presenting system (Patent ID: US20240100427A1)

The patent filed by Sony Group Corp describes a game presenting system that includes multiple game systems executing a game process for multiple users, along with a game presenting machine. This machine obtains motion images related to the game from each game system and produces a game presenting screen image displaying a list of these motion images. The system allows users to switch between different motion images displayed on the screen, with the first motion image being different from the second motion image. The viewpoint of the second motion image is based on the first motion image, providing an improved recognition of the entire scene of the game being executed.

Furthermore, the game presenting system includes a list holding server that sends information about the game systems to the game presenting machine. The first motion image is produced by each game system, while the second motion image is produced by a different system. Additionally, the patent describes a game server connected to multiple game terminals used by users participating in the game, with means for producing motion images related to the game. The game server selects a game terminal to produce the motion image distributed to the game presenting machine, which then displays both the first and second motion images.
