Mark Cerny has revealed that the PS4 has a dedicated audio chip for processing different streams.
I see what you did right there... very clever.. LoL (double meaning - yes this sounds good, and yes the PS4's sound is good) ..LoL .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
The PS3 also had fantastic audio processing capability. Adding a dedicated unit will make the PS4 even better.
Thank you for the detailed breakdown of his joke.
So that means PS4's CPU doesn't have to be used to process it's OS, video, or audio. It has dedicated chips for each. This gives it a processing advantage over XB1, which has to use it's CPU to handle kinect and it's OS.
I like what I'm hearing.
Can't wait to play some bf4 with my 7.1 Surround sound
Just don't be one of those guys that use a camera mic with that setup. Nothing worse then hearing someone elses game and not mine.
It's like: "Dude, turn your sh!t down!" (Dude, turn your sh!t down!)-feedback (Dude, turn your sh!t down!)-feedback (Dude, turn your sh!t down!)-feedback
lol your funny man i like your movies i loved khmmorpg part one.
Great. Maybe we can finally listen to .flac music files
I hope we get a Korg-DS type of Game/app then that lets me make music on the PS4. That could be huge with the replay button + instant upload to youtube. Seriously could spark an indie game music movement. Hopefully somebody else at Sony sees the future potential like I can.
Now this is what I like & respect in a "system architect" a person who looks to the future, A FORWARD THINKER.
What CAN'T it do Cerny? Just give us the shorter list
No pun intended? (",)
It gets better and better every time.
All the time. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Oooh, no, thats more PR talk /s Seriously, this is getting better
Better fix that paying to play online, cross game chat, and ability to change online ID's
Well they have already confirmed cross game chat, so maybe you should do a little more research before talking out your ass.
Well you can do cross game chat on VITA/PS4 and you change your online ID now on PS3.
You can make a new account but you can't change the name of your existing ID.
ok im on psn right now tell me how to change my id.
It is possible, just not outside of Japan http://youtu.be/WAe4_kG19y4
I would gladly support Sony to make my online experience more smooth, plus you get added value with PS +. Cross game chat already exists on PS Vita, it will also translate over to the PS4. I would like to change my PSN ID as well.
Online is not going to be free on PS4 anytime soon. Besides PS Plus value is way better than Xbox Live anyway. Either get with PS Plus or GTFO.
Now that's a good news..
that's a sound feature
Good to hear that.
What's even better is that with the hdmi cable (included) it'll be better than forcast.
More positive news on my PS4. Sounds good? That's what I like to hear!
I see Sony is in tune with what their customers want. PS4 sounds great.
PS4 sounds better and better with every passing week
I hope we can listen to music while playing a game with all games not just certain ones
Custom Soundtracks? Hope so
This is music to my ears.
huh ok seem like the gpu is doing everything in this machine. if they putting a audio card in it the should put a amp so players can hook up their hifi headphones and a mic
you'll be able to hook up hifi headphones on the ps4 just like you can on the ps3. when you say mic maybe you mean a microphone cause you can use some on the ps3 now.ps3 can use most blutooth headsets and the ps4' s will be more current so it'll probably work. I do have a nice JBL blutooth headset that ps3 wont connect to but see it,i'm hoping the ps4 will connect it though.
no i mean a hifi headphone with a mic mic they have for them are usually gargage and over price especially the doby headphone you could easily do that with a mic and hifi headphones thats sound way better. i wish the came up with a way to let u hook it up to the controller
well the PS4 does have a headphone jack in the controller so it may be possible or with an adapter. try asking shu on twitter about it, he has been answering PS4 questions there.
thank you get what i mean some people on this site are the worst get disagrees for suggesting more options
More options are always good and i wouldn't worry about disagrees from trolls or xbots trolling a ps4 story. I could say the sky is blue and i would get disagrees.
For people who understand home theater this is great news!
Enough with the small talk... Have a conference for the release date.....
There's no reason to have a conference for the release date. They're supposed to announce it at gamescom anyway.
we should have Ep1c sound tracks, with rpg's , because of this..,.. never before heard of type stuff.-- HUGE audio files compressed, then decompressed- for maximum effeckt. -also running independently in the back ground when needed to do a-lot of customized things.-
This has been known since February lol
Rock on! The less stress on the main CPU, the better.
When cerny ,god forbid, reaches the end of his life, his smile(if possible) will be even wider, for all that he accomplished in it. God bless mark cerny.
One thing I'm really hoping for is native support for a wider range of codecs/containers like .mkv video files. Ohand recognising USB flash drives formatted in NTFS would be nice also. I know it's going to do a lot of awesome gaming stuff and I love hearing about that, would love to know more about these little details though.
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for mkv support because of bluray piracy but i agree it would be nice. i kinda want pdf support myself and i'm very sure ps4 will read modern ntsf drives cause thats the modern standard today.
Bought time we heard something about the sound capabilities. For me the sound of a game is just as important as the gfx.
One of the biggest problems that goes unknown in every console generation has been audio quality. Right up until the PS3, audio in consoles sounded like utter shit. Space constraints aside, developers were just willing to forego proper lossless audio simply because majority do not know what good audio is and because there wasn't a proper audio processor in consoles. So the PS4 (and also the Xbone) having a change in this area is really a boon.
