Sony Working on Improving Voice Recognition for PlayStation Games for Current and Future Platforms

While Sony did not forcefully include the PlayStation Camera with in the PS4's box like Microsoft did with Kinect and the Xbox One, looks like research is continuing to be competitive in the voice recognition field applied to gaming, as revealed by a career opportunity ad. (PS4)

I really enjoy the voice recognition. It's pretty sweet and works flawlessly. I just would for Sony to let me be able to play with my pulse headsets already!
Ace_Pheonix  +   401d ago
Depending on which one you have, the Pulse Elite can plug right into the DS4 with that cord that comes with it and it works flawlessly. But yeah, I'm really hoping that patch comes out soon.
Clover904  +   401d ago
Wait, the Pulse Elite works with the DS4? Just audio, or does it work with chat as well?
Ace_Pheonix  +   401d ago
It does both, but you have to hold down the home button and change the controller audio output to all for audio

WE need voice commands and recognition on the PS Vita. Itis so cool on PS4.

They like 4yrs behind. While the core gamers or should I say gaming media controlled gamers were crapping on everything that is kinect. MS was tightening and streamlining the system abilities. Look at what the X1 does now.... thats not a 2 week project that got slapped on the system on a humbug. That is years of dedications and work. Poking and prodding investment and feedback.

New tech like this stuff has a learning curve, but as consumers learn it and the engineers improve it those behind will stay behind for quite some time.

Is that why kinect voice still barely works?
imt558  +   401d ago
Nope! Microsoft is waaaaay behind Sony when it's about voice command. Well, someone may remember the game for Playstation 2 with VOICE COMMANDS - "Lifeline" ( 2003 ). Kinect ( 2010 ).

SOCOM: US Navy SEALs which came out in 2002 on the PS2 had voice recognition as well.

True, true...!
GTgamer  +   401d ago
Yo think they would waste time if they couldnt improve it :/ and what does kinect do please let know because reviews say the kinect works half the time really impressive you got reviewers telling us to turn off the kinect when playing DR3 that's a real good sign.

100 bucks for voice with Kinect? Sorry I rather that 10% be placed into the GPU to have a richer GAMING experience.

The Original Kinect still is a glorified EyeToy at best. Come back when you get 1080p, cost less, and is more powerful. Maybe then you'll something to talk about MS.

Not to even mention the paywalls, and ads on your dash.

If you can't beat em, join em. right Sony
GTgamer  +   401d ago
Eyetoy had voice commands first soooo ummm yeah.
Ripsta7th  +   401d ago
I like that. Games first , extra features down the road
silvacrest  +   401d ago
the way it should be for a games console
whothedog  +   401d ago
Waste of time.
kewlkat007  +   401d ago
They really should put money into games and the UI..If your not that serious about going BIG the PS Eye, your wasting money.
NeloAnjelo  +   401d ago
Nothing's wrong with developing this over time. All of Sony's studios are working on PS4 games... This has been confirmed.

Added features over time will add value, and improve the user experience. There will be games. Many, many EXCLUSIVE games!

Dear Sony,

The Move failed and Kinect is not wanted because we have controllers.

I don't want to talk to my games. I want to control the little dudes on screen without saying commands or jumping like a jackass.

You spent a lot of time on the DS4, lets use it ;-)

The Move failed? Is that why I can use the Move Controllers for future PS4 games and they are integrated on the Dual Shock 4?

They didn't revolutionize anything, but it definitely didn't fail.

There's a reason the Move was replaced by DS4. No one purchased a Move. I got one and used it for one game.

It was a flop. What percentage of PS3 gamers got a Move? 3% 4%?
ThatArtGuy  +   401d ago
Media Molecule is still going to use it for an upcoming PS4 game. The thing definitely wasn't used as much as it should have been on PS3. My daughter used ours almost every day for about 7 months just for Eyepet. Just because you didn't use it, doesn't mean others didn't. Sony said they sold somewhere of 15 million of them.

I'd say that's pretty successful for an optional accessory that was released years after initial launch.
contradictory  +   401d ago
ahh yes, i remember voice commands.
i also remember someone saying something about Kinect revolutionizing gaming forever....because that happened.

obviously this will too revolutionize gaming
infact there's so much things that will revolutionize gaming this generation. like Wii U's stylus, Cable Tv, and eyeto- sorry, i meant PS Eye

handhelds have part in it too. obviously.
3D is a major thing because it's totally not a fad that died in a year or two.

and motion controls are super useful on Vita since there's atleast 2 games that take advantage of it.

.....so much /s

Sony fantards are hypocrites. Same stuff they pretended to complain about on Xbone they accept on PS4. Proof they dont love their console and games they just hate yours.

The camera isn't forced upon the PS4 buyers. They can choose. Also it doesn't add 100 to the cost, nor does it take 10% of the GPU power away.

Before the XBONE couldn't even work without the dam thing, or it couldn't even be turned off.

Keep in mind... If this was a 2 horse race, just Nintendo and MS, you would have your DRM box, and a different gaming industry. Also elder scrolls online won't be on consoles. So be thankful for completion. And judge your own console first, before bashing another.

See above letter to Sony
Game0N  +   401d ago
You dont even need the camera to use voice commands, just connect your mic to the controller and youre set. So...theres that. The value with the ps4 is unparalleled at $399
ambientFLIER  +   400d ago
I love how it's being said that Microsoft "forcefully" included kinect. Um, the whole purpose of the Xbox One was to work with Kinect. Kinect is built into the core functionality. That's like saying that Nintendo forced a gamepad with a screen on it on us...it's called innovation.
