The PS4 and How It Can Be ‘Next Gen’

The internet is alive with the chatter about next generation consoles. After nearly 6 years of mediocre “slim” and minor tweaked versions of consoles, we’ve been told to expect the next step up soon. With that in mind Ben was wondering, just what do we want the next generation to be? (Next-Gen, PS3)

I hope they stick to a traditional controller and they improve the hardware a lot for a smoother experience.

Voice command intergration...
I hope they incorporate some sort of Google Now/Siri/S Voice feature into the ps4 interface. Being able to accept/deny friend request simply by saying it would be awesome. Speech to text would almost eliminate the need for a keypad. I would enjoy something like google cards inside a SEN universe.

example: "Orbis, what's the latest DLC for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zero?"
"Orbis, launch game"
"Orbis, send message to...."
"Orbis, check for firmware update"
"Orbis, what demos where released this week?"
"Orbis, Facebook/twitter post.......(your post)"
It would make navigation of the SEN store nearly instantaneous. There would be almost little to no complaints about navigating it. It would also work with Facebook/Twitter/Youtube apps. Anyone who has ever owned a smartphone would immediately know how to use. I figure if our Google Chromes/smartphones can do it, then why not our game consoles?

I like your thinking buddy! Especially with the kinect having a few minor voice commands. This is a great idea.
