According to, Sony has made an agreement with Collaboration Properties, Inc. to license an extensive patent worldwide. The agreement is for the standard terms and conditions for the field of videoconferencing. But this covers Sony's "video conference apparatus as well as other products including video-enabled personal computer products and Sony Computer Entertainment's PlayStation products." Let's think about this. Using video for computer products and possibly the PS3? This sounds like a preemptive strike to halt any future lawsuits from Sony's new EyeToy. Or maybe in response to this. So does this mean the PS3 will have the ability to videoconference, virtually slap the people on tv, or create Wii-like games? A lot of bases are covered, but there's always dirt covering the corners. Hopefully this helps a little bit, though.
