  • Patent number: 10350492
    Abstract: An exemplary server communicates with a first information processing device and communicates with a second information processing device. The server stores at least shared game data representing game content that can be used in a first game application that is compatible with the first information processing device and that can be used in a second game application that is compatible with the second information processing device. The server obtains game data generated by executing the first game application on the first information processing device and updates the shared game data based on the obtained game data. The server transmits at least a part of the shared game data updated based on the game data generated by executing the first game application to the second information processing device for being used by the second game application.

  • Patent number: 10311447
    Abstract: When distribution of a content from a distribution server is started, a CPU carries out streaming-play of the received content. When reproduction of the content ends, the CPU determines whether a vote history brought in correspondence with a corresponding motion picture ID is stored in a flash memory or not. When the vote history brought in correspondence with the corresponding motion picture ID is not stored in the flash memory, the CPU causes a monitor to display a user evaluation input screen so as to accept evaluation of the content. A process does not proceed to next processing until evaluation is input.

  • Publication number: 20190135459
    Abstract: A coupling/uncoupling device includes a columnar member configured by a divided pair of semicircular members, and a pair of coupling members forming a circular holding section that holds the columnar member. The circular holding section includes a circular inner surface section with which an outer circumferential surface of the columnar member is in slide contact, the circular inner surface section being formed from inner circumferential surfaces of a semicircular section in one coupling member and a semicircular section in the other coupling member. The columnar member is configured to be rotatable in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions along the circular inner surface section about a reference position where a contact surface of the pair of coupling members and a dividing surface of the columnar member are flush with each other.

  • Publication number: 20180147486
    Abstract: An exemplary server stores a first application that is compatible with a first information processing device and not compatible with a second information processing device having a platform of a second type different from the first type. The server transmits presentation information relating to the first application to the second information processing device. The server receives, from the second information processing device, instruction information representing an instruction relating to obtainment of the first application corresponding to the presentation information presented on the second information processing device. The server identifies a first information processing device that is to receive the first application relating to the received instruction information. The server transmits, to the identified first information processing device, the first application represented by the presentation information in response to the instruction information received from the second information processing device.

  • Publication number: 20180150537
    Abstract: An exemplary information processing system includes a first information processing device having a platform of a first type and a second information processing device having a platform of a second type different from the first type. The information processing system stores a basic user list that is a user list representing information of other uses registered while being associated with information of a subject user and that can be used by the first information processing device and the second information processing device. The information processing system changes the basic user list in response to a list change notification from the first information processing device. The information processing system sets, based on the basic user list, content of an application user list used in an application that is executed on the second information processing device.

  • Patent number: 9827497
    Abstract: A CPU shows animation in which an introduction character appears. In succession, the CPU has a profile of the introduction character displayed. Thereafter, the CPU has a substance of a content displayed, based on a title or the like included in motion picture information downloaded from a distribution server. Namely, the CPU causes a monitor to display the introduction character (a character object) based on obtained character information and outputs information for introducing a specific content in association with the introduction character (the character object) based on obtained content information.

  • Patent number: 9492754
    Abstract: A CPU of a game device has a weekly calendar screen displayed. In this calendar screen, dates in one week are displayed separately. In the calendar screen, a content display field is provided, in which a thumbnail image or the like of a content brought in correspondence with each day is displayed. A time and day of start of availability and a time and day of end of availability are determined for each content such as a motion picture, and downloading of the content by a user is permitted during a period from the time and day of start of availability to the time and day of end of availability.

  • Patent number: 9415302
    Abstract: A CPU accesses a content corresponding to a motion picture ID included in designated motion picture information, among contents uploaded to a distribution server. Then, when distribution of the content from the distribution server is started, the CPU carries out streaming-play of the received content. Thereafter, the CPU determines whether a sponsor is brought into correspondence with the reproduced content or not. When the sponsor is brought into correspondence with the reproduced content, the CPU downloads a sponsor content list from the distribution server.
