Killzone: Shadow Fall Will Broadcast Radio Messages Through the DualShock 4

Push Square: "One of the more superfluous features of the PlayStation 4’s new controller is the speaker in the middle of the device. While we’ve known about this addition ever since the handset leaked, Sony has been very vague about how it will actually be used." (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4)

It will come in very handy when you're playing split screen multiplayer games. As of right now, when Playing COD or Killzone with my buddies, I get confused when I hear kill confirmed as I'm not sure if it's for me or my buddies.

So hearing it directly from your controller takes away from some of the confusion.

never considered it, great idea.

just imagine the audio records from Fallout or Bishock playing from the controller. or the MGS radio conversations. very immersive

sounds very innovative imo and i feel it will better the immersion in most games but especially ones with ambient sounds as in radios and things like that :). Time does not move fast enough for me at the moment and i say we petition for scientists to increase times speed till the ps4 is released.

oh sweet...exactly what I hated about Wii games

Yeah, why play audio with crappy quality on my controller when I've got a set of decent speakers? I hope it'll be optional.

@matrix

First thing I though of. Hopefully it is better sound quality. The noises emitted from the Wiimote were murder inducing. F***ing terrible. Skyward Sword was almost ruined because of it. Mario Kart almost had me throw the POS out the window.

You never thought of turning the sounds off or down?
Click the wii home button, then the wii-mote settings or something like that and then you can lower the volume to zero. It is very simple.

Admittedly, it was my brother's Wii, and I could never wrap my head around the menu's and things. I just played it every now and then for a few exclusives and to whoop some French people online in Mario Kart (seriously, every time I played Mario Kart online, I only vs French and Italian people lol)

All right, but no crappy quality off the speakers

I like that.

that was a feature I thought the Wii didnt take advantage of with the Wii. I thought it was so cool in No More Heroes when you would get call to your Wiimote like a cell phone.

If the sound is the quality of the Wii U game pad, This will be a great addition

One of the best features of the Wii had this. No More Heroes comes to mind.

Would have been cool to hear Radec like that.

Cool feature but ill never use it, since I always use headphones
momthemeatloaf  +   738d ago
This feature makes me want a new Socom on the PS4.

Not one of the most interesting features of the 4, but still alright, just hope its not terrible quality like the wiimote.

Next gen is about greater graphics and greater immersion!
Great addition!
It isnt.. about a stupid distracting tablet controller, Nintendo..
