Oh really?

Well then I'll give this some testing tonight.

I really don't like that headset though, so it won't be very comfortable. From what I herd, the commands are pretty limited, so I'll see what I can get done with it.

Thanks for the tip.

Yup supposed to be very limited. It was even mentioned as a joke on the latest South Park.

I have no desire to permanently wear what looks like a very uncomfortable headset just to get my console to load an app, pause a blu ray, search the web, etc. Also what about other people in the room? No thanks, I prefer the Kinect approach.

It does voice commands, not voice recognition, major difference.

Also, that. Seems awfully awkward when watching a movie and I want to pause it don't you think?

Multi array microphone is somewhat more practical.

Where did I say voice recognition in my title or post?

Man, that earbud sure looks crappy. Sony sure is going for the cheap on the PS4.

Is there a list of commands it can do?

I know some like the earbud style, but this mono set Sony bundled is terrible for me. It just feels cheap and uncomfortable.

Basically similar to a PC that does NOT use a mic built into a webcam.

 

(Most PCs - and PC users - use microphones built into webcams for convenience, or due to them NOT having any other mic - it does not mean - and never has meant - that it's the only input that can be used.  It can be voice-input or VoIP; in that respect, a console is not merely little different, but no different, than any other PC.  I've had a separate microphone for use with applications since 1996 - the application and OS have been completely irrelevant as long as the hardware was supported.  Windows has supported some form of voice control - albeit in rudimentary form - since Windows 9x; it can be upgraded by installing any version of Dragon Naturally Speaking supported by the Windows OS in question; the same applies to OS X.  No; Windows 8.x - or even Windows Server 2012R2 - has NOT changed this, though why anyone would want to voice-control a server - other than because it can be done - would do so.  To expect a console to be any different from any other PC in this aspect would be ludicrous.)

Uhm.. for those saying they prefer the kinect approach.. users CAN buy the PS Eye, thankfully not included, and use it for the voice control.

I think everyone is aware of that, but even that doesn't make up for how poorly implemented voice controls are on the PS4.

I believe there are more differences at play here than just using an earbud vs the ps eye. I spelled those out in the other thread.

Lets also keep in mind that this just wasn't an interest for Sony and so its not shocking that the feature would be lacking. I don't think we need to make this a defense of the ps4 or something about the X1. Its just about evaluating one features on the console. Hopefully everyone keeps that in mind.
