The PS4 Can Execute Several Voice Commands Without The PS Camera
It’s been discovered via the PS4 online manual that the device can execute several voice commands without the need for the PS Eye peripheral. And through user experimentation, a few more functions have been uncovered.
Default uses outlined by Sony:
Home Screen – “PlayStation, go home.”
Screenshot – “PlayStation, take screenshot.”
Log in – “PlayStation, log in.”
Standby – “PlayStation, power, standby”
Booting up a game – “PlayStation, Resogun.”
Many people may beg the question; why is this such a big deal when you are already holding the controller? Kinect offers voice commands without the use of a controller, but the Xbox itself doesn’t allow for any type of voice commands without it. In my line of work, taking a screenshot in-game without having to input anything with my fingers is a real nice addition. It’s also great to have the feature present without the purchase of the PS Eye peripheral. We’ll literally be trying to figure out new voice commands all evening, and will update with anything new.
