PS4’s Forgotten Feature That Sony Needs To Shout About

NowGamer: "In this eternal battle of the consoles – as one internet nerd metaphorically measures his penis against his imagined arch-nemesis – it’s hard to truly know what is a ‘winning’ feature.

And, truth be told, both the PS4 and the Xbox One are so similar in terms of feature set, hardware capabilities and even games that there isn’t a clear-cut winner.

But with the announcement of Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition for PS4 there’s a reminder of Sony's potential to have a genuinely industry changing idea."

I didn't know about this feature possibilities until now. Pretty cool if you ask me. It depends on the game, though.

this feature was announce back in February when the announce the PS4. its seem lot of ppl have forgotten about it including myself

There's a survival horror game coming out for PS4 has some form of interaction. An article listed one being "meow"; viewers type it and the player hears the eery sound in the distance (though a time delay after for spammers). Dynasty Warriors apparently has some interaction as well.

JoGam877d ago

They also need to implement the past the controller feature.

UnholyLight877d ago

Yeah, I completely forgot about it, and it genuinely is an interesting idea..at least in my eyes. I'd love to see it utilized in more interesting ways than the Tomb Raider game does.

I can see this in NBA 2K where people watching the live stream can make free-throw shots harder (as if they're a fan in the stands)

I really like this idea, I think it has a lot of potential.

I hope Watchdogs uses this. I could imagine a lot of uses for interactions in that game.

PLASTICA-MAN877d ago (Edited 877d ago )

It was even announced with DayLight which the article failed to mention.

Can someone please give us the full twitch chat commands of Tomb Raider Definitive Edition and the other games if possible?

Edit: My bad, it seems this feature is only possible with a PS4 and neither with Twitch or Ustream. Am I right?

kopicha877d ago

it is only on one of the Stream service from what i remember. But cant remember it's Twitch or UStream

dontbhatin877d ago

Its an option you can use if you watch somebody play Tomb Raider, but as far as ive noticed, it doesnt do anything in the game.

MetaReapre877d ago

holy crap, i knew that games were intractable when live streaming but i didn't know they could do things like that. Now I kinda wanna broadcast every time I play. lol

JaredH877d ago (Edited 877d ago )

Does anyone know if you have to be watching on your ps4 to be able to interact in the games being played? Like is there chat votes for things built in so anyone watching can interact or is picking if Lara revives or dies for example only available if you're watching on ps4?

I have a ps4 and watch ps4 streams occasionally but I watch twitch from my PC.

k3rn3ll877d ago

Yea i hope devs don't get crazy with it... its one of those things that has to be done right or not at all

Abdou023877d ago

Devs of a game called "Daylight" or something are using it so people can scare the person who plays.

Imagine this in something like Dark Souls, could be cool :)

xActionBasturdx877d ago

I was thinking the same thing my self lol

MetaReapre877d ago

oh yes... Dark Souls 2 for ps4, please happen now! lol I would love to be broadcasting and someone makes it more difficult or something! I legit mean it!

Aghashie877d ago

I love Demon/Dark Souls but one thing that annoys me is that enemies always respawn on the same spot. Now, imagine a game broadcast where spectators can rearrange the enemies on the map! That would be awesome!

"And, truth be told, both the PS4 and the Xbox One are so similar in terms of feature set, hardware capabilities and even games that there isn’t a clear-cut winner."

And statement like this are exactly why the next 6 - 7 years is going to be a rough ride for X1 owners on every single multiplatform forum. Be honest, be proud and enjoy the exclusives.

killzone619877d ago (Edited 877d ago )

Well i doubt the multiplats on xbox one are going to be as terrible as they were on ps3.

PS3and4_HAS_GAMES877d ago

last gen multiplats were bad on ps3 due to devs being lazy with a quick port unlike now where multiplats on xbox one look worse because devs are really taking advantage of the ps4's power from the start.

DigitalRaptor877d ago

Cell processor was a beast - It was Sony's fault developers couldn't be expected to reach the same parity as first party devs.

The biggest differences between the 360 and PS3 ports of early last gen are already fairly small in comparison to what we're seeing right now between Xbone and PS4.

Dat bottleneck, man.

killzone619876d ago (Edited 876d ago )

@PS3and4_HAS_GAMES

"look worse"

but the games on xbox one dont look bad. They look miles better than last gen games. Have you played CoD ghosts on ps3? the game is a blurry mess. i have to sit close to my TV so i can see people.

hkgamer877d ago

i guess resolution or graphics doesnt matter too much. i mean it can help, but at the end of they day the gamer wouldnt care once he is playing the game... lucky i got ps4 though.

Palitera877d ago

Good luck trying to make someone watch and comment on your stream.
