PS4 Eye Camera Will Support Voice Navigation

According to Amazon's Camera description page.

When combined with the DualShock 4 Wireless Controller's light bar, the evolutionary 3D depth-sensing technology in the PlayStation Camera allows it to precisely track a player's position in the room. From navigational voice commands to facial recognition, the PlayStation Camera adds incredible innovation to your gaming. (PS4, Tech)

Although this is all likely to be true, until Sony confirms such functionality, you can't assume the PS4 will support such features
Tony-A  +   340d ago
I don't think it's too hard to believe, but I'm still not very interested in the camera right now. I'd rather use the cash for a new controller or another game! That's why I'm relieved to find that they give you the option. Only reason I would really use it would be for chatting with friends.

i was impressed by how small the PS4EYE is and how bit the Kinect 2 is.
Great thing if they incorporate such feature, it will make PS4EYE at the same level as Kinect and and for less money.
SignifiedSix91  +   340d ago
@abzdine

You obviously don't know much about kinect 2.0 if you think the PS4EYE is on the same level.

Of course its smaller. It has less tech/hardware than the kinect.

1080p wide angle lens with IR beaming. That alone makes it better by a LONG shot.

@SignifiedSix91:
if you judge things by size then you dont understand anything.
PS4 is way more powerful than X1 and X1 is much bigger and even has an external power brick. Now how do you explain that? Powaaah of da claaaawd?

I played the new Kinect Sports and i can tell that it works so bad and it tracks just as bad as kinect 1. now tell me about the improvement and tech.

Yeah I'm not believing this till Sony says it, don't care much either way. I doubt they sent this info to Amazon without telling the rest of us or ever mentioning it any where else so it's probably just Amazon themselves making assumptions.

If sony wanted to do gesture or voice controls they could have already done it now on the PS3 but have shown no interest in it. For example, GTA V has some barking orders sort of implementation that rushes a cashier you're robbing when you yell at them through a mic.

I like the camera, won't be buying it at launch though. When enough of my video chatting friends move on to PS4 or some game that makes real use of it comes out, that's when I'll pick it up.

sony has been keeping as much on the ps4 back as possible. tbere hasn't been much announced about the camera at all. so this is all very possible, and very likely. i do vaguely recall something about the camera supporting voice navigation tho around e3. i'll try to find it.

also, sony could've just been holding back to put this feature in the ps4 instead of the ps3.

i also like the camera, and even like kinect, but i don't want to buy either until i see something i would actually use one of them for. at the moment, there's nothing.

I 100% agree with you but a potential reason they aren't talking about this feature might be due to the fact that the camera isn't bundles with the system. So Sony doesn't want to give consumers the wrong idea by advertising a feature that won't be possible out the box.
Dlacy13g  +   340d ago
Nor does Sony want to validate Kinect. If Sony talks up the camera too much people will start looking at motion cameras as a key feature and one sony doesn't pack in the box and one at which it is not as impressive as kinect 2. This is one more reason Sony pulled their camera from the box with their camera in the box price would be closer to xbox one but the value of the camera isn't there compared to Kinect.

NateCole  +   339d ago
It was a given but sure enough they will not push it like Move.

I am being brutally honest here but voice control is stupid for simple things as turning on or off your console. This is different from game voice commands.

Why on earth people want to talk to their console to turn it on isntead of just pressing a button which is so much simpler and easier is beyond me.

The only navigation control that i would accept over button press is navigation using my mind as it should be easier than pressing a button. However i doubt this will happen any time soon. Until then.
malokevi  +   339d ago
....because they can?

And please, while your at it, explain to me how approaching your console and pressing a button is "easier" than uttering a phrase.

"The only navigation control that i would accept over button press is navigation using my mind as it should be easier than pressing a button. However i doubt this will happen any time soon. Until then. "

lol. You won't be satisfied until you can "think" at your console? Good merciful god....
kneon  +   339d ago
If you're going to use your console to watch TV and you intend to only use voice commands then sure turning it on with your voice makes sense.

But if you plan on playing a game then you will most likely need to use a controller anyway so voice control is pointless. Yes I am ignoring controllerless games, but I have no interest in those, as do most gamers.

It would be kind of funny if this is true as a whole press conference was based around this feature and Sony have stayed silent on the matter as if its only vaguely important (it really is imo). I think the most intuitive way to browse the menus and UI could end up being the touch pad. If not though, analog sticks have never failed me.
Godmars290  +   340d ago
They're also including a game which needs the camera with the PS4, which all but screams that they intended to include it. Possibly at a $100 mark up despite that its being sold separately at $40(?).
pivotplease  +   340d ago
I think they may have debated it a bit but then unanimously decided it was better to have the lower entry price and I feel like Sony has also taken the most notice of the core's reaction to motion gaming and they wouldn't risk including something most Sony fans wouldn't bother with (like move). The playroom could also just be a small bit of software to make the camera a more worthwhile purchase since I have yet to see any motion-exclusive games surface. It would be awkward if they released hardware with literally no capacity for gaming at launch.
nukeitall  +   340d ago
I bet the reason why the camera isn't included is because Sony can't compete with MS in this area. MS is pioneering Kinect, and their implementation is as good as it gets for the price.

Two cameras for depth tracking is worse than the original Kinect implementation.

There is a reason why this hasn't been shown at all.

Sony most likely figured, being $100 cheaper is better than showing a crap product. When all else fail, compete on price!
JackStraw  +   340d ago
@nukeitall aaaand another person on n4g who is clueless!

the 2 cameras can be used in several different ways. they can both be used for sensing depth, or they can be used for motion tracking, or one can be used for sending depth, while another used for motion tracking. it's totally up to the developer.

i've noticed you really can't stand the thought of sony showing any product that's better than the brand you support. it's sad really.

at least if you're going to argue a point, research first so you don't look so foolish. -1

You really can't go one day without trolling on ps articles can you? I can understand you being upset since your console of choice is probably floating in the wake of the ps4 but fear not, you should grow up some day. Now on topic. You do realize that the ps eye thats currently out can do a lot of things kinect can do right? 1 to 1 tracking, voice recognition, and gesture recognition? The ps4 camera will only improve on what the current camera does so well. It also seems like you're forgetting that very few people like the kinect, and that overall, its a over priced gimmick and novelty item. You make it seem like Microsoft invented motion tracking, and that its the greatest thing since sliced bread. Well newsflash, they didnt, and its not. So grow up and just enjoy your Xbox when it comes out, nobody wants to hear you kicking and screaming.

@ Nukeitall

I bet the reason why MS bundled Kinect 2.0 with the Xbox One it's because they're super confident and convinced that there's absolutely now way that they can fool everybody twice, back to back.

If kinect 2.0 wasn't bundled, the first question the previous kinect owners would ask is :

1."Why can't I use the one I already own?". No real answer from MS, they just chose to not make it compatible.

2."What does it do that the first one can't?" Again, the answer is "Not Much". It's still a laggy way of controlling games.

3. "Why would I pay $100-$150.00 for this again?" If MS sold kinect 2.0 Seperately, as soon as they announced the price, you'd hear crickets and boos reminiscent of the price reveal for Xbox One.

4. To believe that voice control can't be done by anothing other than Kinect is just plain Idiotic in my opinion. I've been doing voice gaming since PS2 days with Socom, so this is nothing new to me. Cmon, I even use my PS3 Eye Toy to voice chat all the time when I'm too lazy to find my bluetooth headset.

Sony is not focusing on the camera purposely because of all the security concerns that currently exist with PRISMs and the flack MS has been getting with Kinect. Plain and Simple.
FamilyGuy  +   340d ago
I imagine web navigation will be a lot smoother with that touch pad and we've seen yosh use it to send a text message already.

I keep forgetting about that touch pad but every time it get brought up or used it seems like a cool thing they added. It could just be a new convenience or actually have devs come up with innovative ways to use it like Sucker Punch already has with its stealth strangling.

pedroyamato  +   339d ago
Voice recognition and voice navigation are two completely different things.

It is not new, sony changes its products just after the rivals show theirs.
Kinect showed the navigation system by voice as its best feature since the first moment, and sony just adapted it to the ps4 to make it look better. Same way they are trying to make the ps4 + vita looks like necessary now (in clearly comparison with the wii u).

Not surprised at all, actually o/

This is why Deadpoolio took a jab at you. It seems as if you implied that Microsoft had the idea of motion gaming before Sony, which caused confusion.

"That's like saying the Playstation is nothing more than a Atari which was around first, just expanded upon its features."

This wasn't a surprise. Sony released a console about 20 years after the first home console had been released. It proved to be a success. Motion gaming hasn't been proven to be a success so at the moment it *might* seem like copying. Btw, Wii sales does not mean motion gaming was a success. Wii sales only reached that number due to price. No one is too hot about motion gaming right now, so that supports my point. Feel free to respond at your own will, sir.

@Ben Affleck aka Bruce Wayne : )
Tooly stated the new PS Eye was announced before the X1. I stated Kinect2 is just an improvement over the first. It's not like Kinect was a response to the PS Eye.

Motion Gaming...see that's where I think people get it wrong. The Kinect isn't JUST about motion gaming, like the Wii was. That's not the only thing it's used for.

Example- Facial and body scanning. It's built into the hardware available for any developer to take advantage. Eye toy doesn't do that, neither did Wii.
DICE is implementing it into BF4...not the motion side of it. http://www.vg247.com/2013/0...

Dead Rising 3, little feature where the zombies can hear the surrounding noise in your house and react to it.

We've seen the Oculus Rift team make it compatible with their tech.

Kinect isn't just motion gaming so it can't be compared to Wii. It's a camera, and I agree it's never been taken advantage of but, no one has ever made it a central focus and let devs know every owner of the console will have it. So this will be the first generation where we see what can happen with that guaranteed camera install.

No one is hot about motion gaming, again that's not all it is. To add to that, gaming hasn't always been accepted and been as mainstream as it is now. It used to be looked at in the same vain as camera/motion gaming, but look at how it's grown. We'll never know what can be done unless someone pushes it. That's my response.

See, be seen, share, cheer, and even gloat like they're sitting right there next to you. With the PlayStation Camera, you can challenge the world, even from a world away.

Highlights

When combined with the DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller's light bar, the evolutionary 3D depth-sensing technology in the PlayStation Camera allows it to precisely track a player's position in the room.
From navigational voice commands to facial recognition, the PlayStation Camera adds incredible innovation to your gaming.
Add a new dimension to online social interactions with the PlayStation Camera's integrated video features. Automatically integrate a picture-in-picture video of yourself during gameplay broadcasts, and challenge your friends during play.
Never leave a friend hanging or miss a chance to taunt your opponents with voice chat that keeps the conversation going, whether it's between rounds, between games, or just while kicking back. Not only can games adapt to your presence, the 3D imaging technology can create a depth map of your room and read your body's movements in real space."

Its a nice feature.

I wasnt aware that you could control the apps like Netlix and Hulu and stuff with the PSeye with Ps3.

Anyway its a nice feature I have enjoyed it.

I wonder why I got all of these disagrees? Are Sony supporters that insecure. I wasnt comparing anything or bashing anything unless..... unless they all feel hat the feature itself is bad.

Shouldn't you all be saying I don't want this camera crap because I don't want the government to spy on me? Yet not a word of this has been mentioned? Oh, this is only mentioned when its rival is brought into attention..

But the vast majority of everyone in here is. And 2... The camera isn't bundled or even mandatory... So who here exactly is saying they want voice recognition, and who here has said they want the camera?

Worked great for navigating through SingStar, but still...it's probably not a feature I'll use. Seems like a waste, unless I can say, "PS4...download inFamous: Second Son, so I can play it as soon as it comes out. Confirmation word: MassiveDamage." Then, it just does that in the background while I'm playing Killzone online or something. I want that.
