The PS4 Will Have Voice and Facial Recognition too

By Sam Gibbs on at

Continuing the "everything you can do, I can do better" war, Sony's confirmed that the PS4 will be able to mimic the Xbox One with both facial and voice recognition, so you'll be able to scream at your PlayStation too.

Spotted on a slide from a recent GameSpot Expo presentation (above), then later confirmed by Sony, the fancy person-recognition tech will shockingly need the PS4 Eye -- yet another thing on the console that requires a £50-odd accessory that really should have come bundled.

Anyway, the exact implementation of the system remains to be seen, so this is just yet another salvo from Sony in the tit-for-tat console war for now. At this rate there really won't be anything to choose between the next-gen machines, apart from whether you prefer Halo or Killzone, and surely everyone prefers Halo, right? [YouTube, Polygon via CVG]
