The document shows the game console and various related equipment.

Various devices such as gyro sensor, acceleration sensor, and pressure sensor are installed in the controller of the game console. This patent identifies the player holding the controller from the information obtained from these sensors. With the PSN account, you can manage the progress and achievements of the game and content for each player, so it is convenient for the player with a controller to log in automatically without having to manually log in to the PSN account. There seems to be an aim to raise it.

However, since many experimental patents are applied and acquired in addition to those actually installed, it is unknown whether this function will be implemented in PS5 scheduled to appear at the end of 2020.
