PS4 will be sold with a headset

16 Replies 2,629 Views Created 21-02-2013

Oh yes, the PS4 will be sold bundled with a headset :D Great idea :D

 

"A headset will be bundled with PlayStation 4, enabling gamers to chat with friends during online gaming and to hear sound effects from the controller."

I think the headset is used to join the Borg collective, so I won't be using it.

I much prefer solitary confinement, to screaming gamers.

ps3 should have had one with the console so it's only right the ps4 will have one, so about time.

 

 

remembers all the quiet games where people were suppose to work as a team but every one went off on thier own. And when some one talked you nearly died of shock horror that you die in game ;)

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

The PS3 was sold of the back of the...User customisation... That was its gimmick... 

 

You don't need to buy a keyboard just plug in that old USB keyboard from the P4 tower you never used any more. 

Got a BT mobile phone with BT headset, don't buy a new one connect with your phone headset...

 

And the Biggest one...

Want to play FPS with a Mouse, Don't go out and buy a new mouse take any USB mouse and play UT3 on day one with your PC mouse... (UT3 massively delayed, SCE keyboard released for CS:GO, yep delayed for ever in EU. yet still no SCE mouse released.)

 

Users are to lazy swap devices each time... 

 

Plus BT quality was rubbish walked past the door out the room and the headset lost connection most times...

Unlike RF dongle  headsets which just work.... While you boil the kettle... For the super noodles...

(Because you have not hit the mute button)

I always thought that was a missed trick on PS3. With the 360 providing a headset, it created a sense of community. It's great to see they'll be providing one for PS4.

 

I hope they provide a headset that plugs into the controller though. Nothing worse than poor quality bluetooth or wireless when gaming.

But I don't get why it needs to be plugged into the controller.

 

What difference does it make?

  • Cheaper not wireless headset
  • DS4 BT connection forces minimum standard of coms from BT signal fixed by SCE.
  • Automatic multi user paired coms. (no setup menu needed) For multi player online games for more than one user on one PS4 at a time...
  • Wireless mic connection addon Powered by DS4 batteries not console..
  • There will be more others can post them.

I'll be interested in seeing how the sound from the controller will be or if it'll be a distraction.

Also developers will be able to use the speakers in the controller. Think along the lines of a FPS and receiving radio signals from AI in the game; not from your TV speaker but via the hand-controller. Sweet!

The worst ones are other people in the room who don't under stand that every thing they said is being broadcast over the coms.

 

 

Like when the girl friend is cheating on her current boy friend with his best mate who can hear her over the coms... and hes the host of the dam room..

 

Or kids who have no idea dads left the mic on the table when hes gone to the kettle and another family member is online in the same room.

 

Mute the Smeging mics you smeg heads...

Well my thinking was the annoying interference and poor quality of some headsets on PS3. On 360, the quality of the wired headset is good and reliable. 

 

I also hope the speaker on the controller isn't used for chat. Background noise would be an issue.
