PlayStation Eye

You’re officially going to be able to talk to your PlayStation 4 console and get some kind of response. Following on from this morning’s reports, a Sony representative has told us that the next generation console will support voice recognition via the refreshed PlayStation Eye – but stopped short of sharing any further information.

An updated product page hinted at the functionality earlier today, stating that the camera will unlock “navigational voice controls”. The spokesperson that we talked to could only confirm the inclusion of voice recognition, but given the aforementioned description, it seems likely that you’ll be using the device to jump around the system’s interface in a similar manner to the Xbox One.

We’re sure that the platform holder will share more details nearer to launch. While the company opened its recent GamesCom press conference with a demonstration of the dashboard, we’re still yet to get a detailed look at the interface in action. With just a few months until release, though, we’re confident that the firm will provide a full walkthrough in due time.
