How has no one thought of this before? Generally, the DualShock 4’s on-board speaker has been ignored, but Zombie Army 4: Dead War puts the feature to terrific use by playing unsettling messages when you pause.

This is a fantastic idea, and we can certainly see it inducing a few panic-stricken moments in living rooms around the world. What are your favourite uses of the DS4’s speaker? Try not to spook us in the comments section below.
