I hope so! I'm going to buy a PS4 and a 720 just so I can hear them talking to each other. That would be one interesting conversation! Would they get along? I wonder which one would have an algorithm break down first? ... *fight*

Software UI-wise, I peg PS4 to breakdown first. . .then again there's the blue screen of death.

agreed,... if the xbox managed to last long enough without overheating!

OT:i haven't considered the use of voice recognition in the ps4. i would like to say how it could be amazing and useful and it has a lot of possibilities but every other form of voice recognition i have found to be either utterly useless or a gimmick. i have never found the need to use Google's voice search nor has apple's siri been anything more than a nuisance to me. if anyone does use voice recognition and finds it useful i'd love to know how and when.

Didnt Microsoft have a head start with defective hardware?

Talk to each other? I would rather use the voice recognition in games that utilize it. Imagine this: Playing an open world game (like GTA) and if u need a pay-and-spray, u just say it into the built-in mic that's in the ps4 controller, so u don't have to pause the game, go to map, find the pay and spray yourself, and set a way -point (which interupts game flow). Imagine just saying the locations name and the game automatically sets the way point to the nearest pay and spray. It's a long overdue concept, especially since real gps systems can do that too now. And with a mic being built into the controller, and a mini headset coming with the controller (for it's subsequent headphone jack) then I can see everyone enjoying this feature, without having to buy a new headset.

Takes all the fun away!

Who wants to say "PS4.....rage quit"????
I'd much rather continue to throw my sixaxis at my girlfriend and storm out of the house.
