Submission + - Sony Corporation Files For Patent On Gamers Meeting In Public->

An anonymous reader writes: In the "not right in the head" department, Sony Computer Corp's got a patent application in on an idea for tying in-game events with real world meet-ups, and rewarding people for divulging their real life identities.

The media's sort of glossed over this, but this article posts the application abstract in full, and it looks like they're trying to patent company sponsored gamer meetups. Prior art? I think Blizzcon qualifies.
