And it's making for some fun Demon's Souls videos
My mic automatically turns off whenever I log into the console. It's always on mute. You can do that in the settings. That video is pretty cool though lol
Yeah, it's a cool option to capture a voice clip! Lol I imagine that video was cut just before he shouted, " that's RIGHT MotherF***** "!
I did not know it could do that. Thanks for the heads up. I always forget to turn it off.
Yup. First thing I was planning to do when they said the controller would have a mic built in and was the first thing I did when I turned on the system.
Its gonna hear a lot of humming and whistling, maybe some heavy breathing as well.
Won't be long until someone posts on social media of getting a trophy to, "IF YOU DON'T TURN THAT GODDAMN THING OFF RIGHT NOW, YOU'RE GOING TO GET IT!"
That's cool as long as they warn you before hand. Otherwise it's scary. I'm tired of my phone listening to me
Your phone: "I heard that"
Siri will remember that.
sad phone noises
4 years ago I would on a less frequent occasion get ads that made me think my phone was listening to me, because it wasn't something I searched for on my phone or PC. Now it's so damn blatant that it's listening to me to where I would immediately get an ad within 10 minutes of speaking about whatever it was. I'm like...wtf?!? How does it just randomly show me some obscure organic cereal brand I recently bought?
That one is actually your consumer profile that is based on purchases. If an item has a unique name on a receipt, then it will be listed on your consumer ad profile for future ads or similar ads to be "catered to you" or just whatever they think you will be willing to buy.
That seems to make sense. I used my Visa credit card to pay for it at the grocery store. I'm assuming there's no way to opt out of this? Terrible
I'm sure Siri is tired of listening to you too
when I beat maneater boss. i was screaming of joy. Man I love this game.
Ha nice one. Yeah maneater is such a c***t
I just beat it tonight. The only boss which posed any problem was Maneater. After that last boss on Sekiro, going back to demon's souls isn't the challenge it once was!
Try New Game + Trust me the difficulty jumps dramatically towrds the latter half
Not really. All they are gonna capture on those mics is PS fans saying: "Xbox has no games"
Or you know you could just turn the feature off.
I love that it does that, honestly. I've got some good clips.
So having a company able to record you is a good thing?
Well, yeah. I told them they could. You can turn it on and off. It's super easy in the settings. You people are acting like it's some sort of spying thing. They aren't uploading these recordings anywhere. It is saved locally, on your machine. If you want to use the voice search function, you can do that, too. Even without the camera. The controller can do it. It's pretty cool. What did you think they were doing with the RECORDING functionality? Not using it? It's a camera and a microphone. What in God's name do you want them to use it for? Decoration?
Only if its Sony they can do no wrong. It was a completely different vibe on this site when Kinect was accused of this very same thing...wonder why
Speak, people just didn't want to be forced to buy a kinect and add $100 to the system price lol. The same ppl complaining now are the same ones complaining then. PS4's camera listened to you too. If you said playstation it came up and prompted anything you asked.
Kinect was forced on consumers with no option to turn it off. Very different situation.
@notorious Actually people could easily have just unplugged their kinect. Never had to be an issue. And this is not an issue either. In my opinion.
You dont like companies recording you I suggest you throw your cell phone in a bonfire.
@notorious from what I've been able to find out about kinect for xbox one is that it wasn't actually required for the console to function as people could simply not plug it in on launch day and could use the console as per normal, so in other words optional
I didn't say anything about it being for spying i was just curious as to why you are loving it
Lmfao that's awesome
That addition really added to how rewarding that trophy felt. I need to turn the feature on. Mine is set not to record atm. But now I'm thinking it would be great for hard games lol
Just add this to the list of things that are already spying on us like our phones, personal assistant device, and PC. On the PS5 I feel like it's less malicious in nature. Probably for research to know what experiences makes gamers happy, sad, angry, or excited. If this leads to improving the gaming experience, then it's not the worst spying implementation
Hey remember when people were dubious about the Kinect recording shit when it was needed to use the X1? Guess privacy goes out the window when it's Sony
What's wrong? People aren't up in arms like you want them to be? If you look at what your precious Kinect did, and what this does, it's 2 different things. But, go ahead and be a dramatic. We should be used to that by now.
Never owned an Xbox, had a PS2, 3 & 4. I just don't want my console to record me and I think the fact no one finds it dubious is concerning
I can't wait to have this happen while playing Senran Kagura. Oh heck yeah.
Sony is spying on u
Seems fine if it's optional
