Shuhei Yoshida: You Can Turn the PS4 Off Remotely with the Vita, and Mute the DualShock 4′s Speaker

Tidbits of information about the PS4 and its features continue to trickle down thanks to SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida, that keeps holding his “unofficial customer service” on Twitter by answering the questions from the fans. (PS4, Shuhei Yoshida)

Finally a reason to turn on my Vita -- to turn off my PS4.
Abriael  +   608d ago
If that's the only reason you'd use a PS Vita for, you got bad taste in games.
Donnieboi  +   608d ago
He doesn't own a Vita.
marloc_x  +   608d ago
*slow clap for Sony*
booni3  +   608d ago
Or you could turn it on to play Dragon's Crown, Persona 4 Golden, Soul Sacrifice, Muramasa Rebirth, Disgaea 3 Detention, Dead or Alive 5 Plus or any of the many upcoming retail titles , PSP digital titles and indies, etc. If you don't like the console that's perfectly fine but why take every opportunity to attack it?

PlayStation fans has no leg to stand on asking questions like this.

Now I can carry my Vita.
iPad  +   608d ago
So you are gonna buy a Vita and a PS4 ;)

Welcome to the familia.

You do know he forgot the /s right?

Hes just another typical fanboy bashing something which he has probably never owned!
levian  +   608d ago
I'm more excited about the fact that you can mute the speaker. That was something I really didn't like about the Wii
miyamoto  +   608d ago
knew you were joking so i hit agree, lol!
DirtyPimp  +   608d ago
hmmmm.
philfogg  +   608d ago
:lol: Get a sense of humor people. It was a joke. I'm a Sony apologist.
GribbleGrunger  +   608d ago
Well it amused me.
booni3  +   608d ago
the /jk tag works wonders, though I still don't think reception of that comment would have been any more positive.
philfogg  +   608d ago
Helpful. I'm a n00b here, so thanks. Still coming to grips with the ability of the community for sardonic comments and wry humor.
GribbleGrunger  +   608d ago
Tell me about it.
pivotplease  +   608d ago
Eh apologist applies primarily to microsoft if you're talking about right now or even the last 4/5 years in the gaming world. Sony apologist is more of a 2006/7 thing if it is a thing at all. Oh and people can't comprehend sardonic here. And not because its a silly word for sarcastic that reminds me of sardines but because people are really on their toes to justify their purchase of whichever console they can afford with their allowance. Tyrion could cause a shitstorm on this site.
LOGICWINS  +   608d ago
I figured you were joking, but you should know that people here are very sensitive to criticism of anything Sony related.

Notice how one person above went as far as to deduce that you didn't own a Vita simply for making that joke.

We've gotten to the point where making a sarcastic joke about the Vita equates to not owning a Vita.

Welcome to N4G, where being overly defensive of gaming hardware clouds basic 7th grade reasoning skills :)

Quit pinning anything on one group. It's the Internet and has little to do with one specific group as opposed to all of us as a community. This is a passionate Industry and some people get easily offended but to label one set of individuals.
PrimeGrime  +   608d ago
That is why the /s at the end exists because sarcastic jokes cannot be sensed so well with just worded text.

Really can't blame anyone for that. So many real trolls on this site also everyone will automatically assume you are just trolling anyway cause there are actually so many here.
pivotplease  +   608d ago
Oh and I wouldn't dream of muting the controller speaker. The few times I played a wii, hearing stuff like navi through the controller was one of the major highlights. It's a pretty immersive feature.
Angrymorgan  +   608d ago
Im glad I can mute it.
If im playing late at night. I find the sound on the wiimote louder than my tv and it sh! Ts me up lol.

Can you mute the wiimote? Never really looked into it
trafalger  +   608d ago
what about the annoying blue lightbar?
Caleb_H  +   608d ago
It'd be cool if bf4 used the speaker for the voice overs.
STANK08  +   608d ago
Wait, So the DS4 contains a mic? Why does the DS4 have a microphone? Is Sony eavesdropping ? I don't want that spytroller in my house!!

A speaker and a microphone are two different things. The DS4 does not contain a microphone.

Speaker = sound output
Microphone = sound input

*smh* That you even had to explain that. Even when it specifically says "Speaker" in the headline.
nevin1  +   608d ago
I thought the speaker on the wiimote was annoying so im glad you can mute's DS4.

anyway, since yoshida is answering questions, will someone ask him how many players can PS4 support since previous systems supported 7-8?
STANK08  +   608d ago
@ Abriael @PrimeGrime The article clearly states

"In addition to that, if you’ll want your DualShock 4 controller to just shut up, and stop making noise with that little built in MICROPHONE, you’ll be able to mute it."

LOL.... Reading is fundamental LOL

You need to educate yourself ..

The controller has a built in mic so it can produce sound from games you play,like the Nintendo Wii mote.

Not even sure if you can call it a mic.

PrimeGrime  +   608d ago
Yes it is, that is why if you payed attention to what you read. You would have read the actual question first asked.

"will it be possible to turn off the speaker on the dualshock 4?"

"Yes"

Was a small mistake I am sure but speaker is said way more than Microphone in all of that. So it is pretty easy to use common sense and see they meant to say speaker in that part.

Seeing as they did include it in the headline.

So pick up on those fundamentals buddy. Reading everything is just as important.

Um, using the vita to turn off the ps4 when a controller will most likely be sitting next right to you is more redundant than saying xbox off when you can just press the button.

People are asking these questions because of Remote Play. Man how many times do I have to explain this?

Remote Start is an important feature for Remote Play. It isn't just starting your system, it is starting it up from anywhere then being able to remote access it, playing your games anywhere then being able to turn the PS4 off when your done where ever you are outside your home.

So it makes more sense to you to have to leave the PS4 on all day every time you leave the house or go out of town? Then have to manually turn it off when you come back home every time you want to use Remote Play?

Yea that sounds much more logical for Remote Play use. /s

So mega face palm yourself for that one.

Think about it. you live in Tokyo and your PS4 is there, you set the remote play and start features up, you fly to see your family in New York which is
Miles: 6735.21
Kilometers: 10838.97

that distance, but thanks to internet you can still access your PS4 digital library.

I don't think I can be clearer.
CrossingEden  +   608d ago
Your comment is the EPITOME of grasping at straws.
No FanS Land  +   608d ago
you're the one not getting it, it's not much different from mac os x's remote installation or osx and windows remote desktop where you can control the os from a distance.

I turn my PS3 on/off with my Vita when I'm at work for various reasons. Especially playing PS1 games. :)
nick309  +   608d ago
Its to turn it off away from home with the vita.
Abriael  +   608d ago
Remote Play facepalms at your comment.
G20WLY  +   608d ago
So, someone explained why you are so incredibly wrong (above) and you attempt to mock them? 2 bubbles, 2 fails? That's an impressive ratio, well done. smdh

Oh, and good luck turning your XBone off from the train, car, hotel, etc. You'd better shout pretty loud ;)

If I ever forget to turn my console off this feature will come in handy.

You can turn off the PS3 with the PSP and Vita in remote play so nothing new here..
Abriael  +   608d ago
Besides the fact that we're not talking about the PS3?
vigilante_man  +   608d ago
We are talking about PS Vita being able to turn off a console.

If the PSP & PS Vita can both turn off the PS3 in Remote Play then why is it a surprise that the PS4 can be turned off via remote play?

Also, why 2 disagress for being able to turn off the PS3 with PSP & Vita? It is a fact! Get a life, people..
