The PS4’s voice commands are very clever

1 min read


You would expect Microsoft with their Xbox One and bundled Kinect to have the most responsive and natural voice technology in their console, but it actually looks like Sony has a lead on them at the moment.

Kotaku have decided to post an article related to gaming again, I know it’s amazing right, and the results are actually quite interesting.

So, if you want to play Call of Duty: Ghosts on your Xbox One you can say “Xbox play Call of Duty Ghosts” and it will work.

That’s good right? Well, Sony decided to be smarter and give each game an array of titles so if to get to Ghosts you can simply say “PlayStation Call of Duty” and it will go to your game. Oddly it doesn’t work if you say Ghosts but I guess they can patch these things.

What’s even more impressive is that they don’t even expect you to pronounce the name right, which is the smartest way to get around regional accents. Take a look at the video above to see how you can pronounce different games incorrectly and it still works.

It’s these small things that make hardware great.

    Whats the point in telling your console which game you want to play? You still need to insert the disc. lol
