Sony has also filed a US patent application, this one to do with wirelessly connecting portable game machines (ie Sony's new handheld PSP) with various Internet-connected devices. The application discusses various scenarios, including connecting the portable game device to a remote server for processing software that's too complex for the handheld device; storing content (games, movies, music, etc.) on central servers for uploading to the handheld device when required; and e-commerce transactions such as buying games online through the handheld device. This patent application is likely part of Sony's strategy to make the PSP a general portable multimedia device rather than a mere game machine.
