How to control your PS4 with your voice

1 min read


Microsoft’s new console isn’t the only system that let’s you use the god-like power of your voice to control the thing; Sony’s PlayStation 4 also allows you to shout at your TV to get it to do things. Naturally, The Playstation4 implementation of voice controls is somewhat more rudimentary than the sort you’ll find on the Xbox One, but it seems like it works well enough.

Best if all, is you won’t need to have the add-on PS eye camera system at all; you can boss your PS4 around using the included, substandard headset that comes with every PS4 sold.  Here it is in action, courtesy of PlayStation All Access.

Honestly though, as cool and useful as it looks, I’m just not above pressing buttons to get things done. Plus, I end up looking like less of a twat.

Will you be using your beautiful voices to control your consoles?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
