PlayStation Camera For The PS4 Will Support Voice Commands

If you want to talk to your PlayStation 4, go for it.

A Sony representative has informed Polygon that the camera for their new console will support voice commands:

"Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm that PlayStation Camera allows for voice recognition and we will look forward to sharing more details in the lead up to the launch of PlayStation 4 on November 29 [in Europe]."

This comes hot on the heels of consumers spotting an Amazon listing for the PlayStation Camera that included the feature, "navigational voice commands." As most of you already know, Microsoft's Kinect will also accept voice commands on the Xbox One. Is voice command something you'd take advantage of? And how well do you think it'll work? A lot of these fancy next-level features sound great in theory but in practice, they're still vastly inferior to standard controls. Could be cool, though...

Maybe for another Seaman? Or a smexy personal virtual assistant to talk to while I'm working at my computer.

Notice how for Sony this is just another feature and not the entire focus of all of everything they want to do ever?

PUAHAHA, now there's really no reason to get an Xbone. And don't say Titanfall because that's not likely to stay exclusive.

I'm grabbing a camera for head tracking in WAR THUNDER, but no way I'll use voice commands. They were fun enough in SOCOM 1 and 2, but eventually I went back to using the d-pad anyways.

This is a nightmare for those whose english is not their native language. Nothing is more humiliating than having to repeat a simple word over and over, realizing you do pronounce it a bit weird.

So in other news, the PS4 is an X1 with better RAM and different exclusives.

... Dafuq? Why are the two main competitors trying to homogenize and make themselves essentially similar to each other?
