"We previously showed you leaked information confirming voice recognition with the PS4, but Sony tried to distance itself from the news. Now, during TGS, it has once again been confirmed." - PSLS
Really cool. I was throwing the idea around of buying one, but now I'm pretty certain.
The best thing is that it is not forced on you, and getting the PS4+ camera is still cheaper than the competition. If they somehow integrate TV voice commands (for whoever cares,I don't want to yell at the TV) they will make the One obsolete
How does that make the Xbox one obsolete ?
"The best thing is that it is not forced on you" Thats what I was going to say Heavy. In other words, we have, it works, feel free to ignore it if you like, games are the main priority.
@edonus, Having the function not forced on you is better than you may expect. Grant it, I understand where you are coming from, but it doesn't mean devs won't program the information in. I think with the x86 being so simple and the architects of each console being so similar, the code to apply the device will be a breeze. Who knows, Sony may have made it mandatory, but not required code within the PS4 development environment.
sony, man wow killin it i cant wait....**throws credit card like a ninja star at screen
With two lenses it has better depth perception as well.
I can't wait to check out The Playroom.
Why? I'm honestly curious. It's kind of a glorified tech demo. There's no game, no point really.... I'll be getting a camera with my ps4, but I don't understand the excitement of the playroom
Robot Chibi's, that is all!
Aw comon sony give micro a chance.Lol yh right slaughter them,massacre them snuff them out.
HA, the PS Eye would not slaughter the Kinect.
Sony owns cams man don't count em out,best thing I've seen on kinect is prob night ir and heart monitor
This is how u surepose to deal with consumers give them the choices and not being anti with consumers as well and sense ps cam can pretty much do what kenect can I don't c any reason to buy a x1 then ps4 like at all I mean ps4 is more powerful better games and will have the best gaming experience only on ps4 MS good luck selling ur piece of crap cable box.
Didn't care with Kinect, don't care now.
So why PS eye?
wait and see if they use the features and how good it is
People are such hypocrites. "Oh that's so dumb to have a camera, and move around that's such a joke blah blah". "Oh wait PS Eye has that now it's super cool!. God people are so fucking dumb". Get real, you were jealous then, and now they have it. It's "cool".
It might not be the same people saying it?? I still don't care. 1080 p was cool when XB1 had more than 1 game with it. Now all of a sudden it doesn't matter and 900p is fine. Is that fair to include you it that? It must be, since you are obviously part of a herd.
Indies were awesome on the 360, but now that PS4 is very indie-centric, it's "indies are a bad thing". Just one example. The real biting point here though, is the fact that this non-essential peripheral is forced on you for an extra $100 regardless of whether you like it or want it. I could appreciate a company more for providing options, and still doing a good job of it, more than a company ramming its investments down your throat.
Man, that really has to hurt Xbox One. It's cheaper, was never going to be always on and isn't a forced add-on. Sony is just beating Microsoft into the ground at this point. I don't really know if Xbox One has ANYTHING that entices people to buy the product. Yes, you have have NFL integration but what big NFL person is going to want an XB1 just so he can talk to his TV. Pretty sure he's not going to be watching the game AND playing games at the same time; More than likely he's watching just the game, especially if he has NFL ticket with Direct TV( like myself).
Stop it Sony stop it, they're already dead *crying*
Now fanboys can praise this device for the same reasons they condemned Kinect 2.0. I don't want either camera in my home. Oh, and it's "optional" but at the same time the ps4 controller was built around it. I'd rather have Sony dump the camera entirely and the annoying light bar on the ps4 controller.
Too bad no one will have it unlike kinect. Remember cameras are terrible.
My iPhone has voice recognition, Microsoft swears they've revolutionized voice commands lol, anyone can do it, Sony just proved it
Lol. The rank hypocrisy in some of these comments is amazing. I don't know why Sony would bother making the camera because all of the Sony fans on this site and others i read have been saying or years that it's a gimmick and that they'd never buy one. Sony - its a feature set they don't want! So don't bother cloning Kinect to sell as a peripheral.
I'm sorry but we've been there and done that with the EyeToy and the PlayStation Eye. It was nice, but nothing great, so of course we've been indifferent towards it. Sony needs to prove its worth. "Unfortunately" for us, Sony has been continuing their vision for camera-based peripherals generation after generation, long before camera peripherals were a twinkle in Microsoft's eye, and they always will. This sort of advancement should have been expected. This is just what they do - they have R&D labs for a reason. Kinect's position is irrelevant to Sony's progress with the Eye. Anyone who genuinely believes Sony cloned the Kinect, is beyond naive.
It bloody well is a clone. That's obvious to everybody. Even the media refers to it as Sonys answer to Kinect. The original eye toy on ps2 was a totally different proposition. The PS4 camera is designed to provide the same functionality as kinect and Sony are adding software features to mimic its other OS related uses. Whilst you might not agree with me there's no need to suggest I'm being naive. Lets keep it civil. I've seen it all since the mid 80's in gaming and I and many others like me know a 'me too' product when we see one. Sony is recognising kinects financial success in the same way MS did when they created kinect to get in on the Wiis motion control fad or the use of Blu Ray in XB1. Just you wait and see how many of these Sony will now sell as they add console control features. I bet it's loads and the bundles will reappear and become a popular SKU if not the standard package next year. Sony should have included from launch in my view. For something that Sony fans say they don't want I think we would find that their version of kinect will have sold surprisingly well if we were having this conversation in a years time. The Xmas 2014 bundle will almost certainly include it.
If Sony gives a compelling reason to buy a camera, maybe I'll get it, but right now, I see no reason to buy it. Other than Playroom, I haven't heard of one game that would use the camera, one game that would use voice recognition, or one game that even uses move. Why on earth buy it?
I want to know if the PS4 has voice navigation similar to the Xbox One. This would be a HUGE pro to purchasing the PS4 Camera especially for young families with kids that like to hide your PlayStation controller.
LOL... sorry but its comical to see so many now "praising" a camera add-on, voice recognition and facial recognition. Now the battle cry is "and its not forced on you" which is true, but then again...all these great features are useless unless you buy the camera.
