The document seems to anticipate one of the new functions of the so-called Create button, a substitute for the Share button. The patent does not have to be used.
Sony Interactive Entertainment has applied the registration of a patent related to the possibility of creating video game demos by the users themselves so that they can then be shared with the rest of the PlayStation community. Registration is official, but it does not necessarily have to be used, it is a way of safeguarding the right to use this idea.

Until now, it was only possible to do the same with limited captures and videos. “As for the buttons, the first thing that catches the eye is the absence of the famous ‘Share’ button from the DualShock 4. But that doesn’t mean it’s gone,” said Hideaki Nishino, senior vice president of product management and planning in April. “Following the success of the pioneering Share button, we have gone a step further by adding a new ‘Create’ button. With it, we once again offer players never-before-seen ways to create epic gaming content to share with the world or personally enjoy, ”he continued.
The PS5 DualSense was subjected to “hundreds of drafts” before the final design, but we already know practically all its features, as we tell you in this article. Highlights: USB-C powered, improved touchpad, adaptive triggers with better angles, haptic feedback, microphone and speaker, headphone port …
