The PlayStation 4 can use PS Camera for voice recognition Sony has confirmed that the upcoming PlayStation 4 will do voice recognition through the PS Camera.
The company confirmed the news, but left little in the way of details. "We can confirm that PS Camera does allow voice recognition. We will share more details on this shortly."

During a presentation for retail staff, Sony revealed a slide that stated, "From navigational voice commands to facial recognition, the PlayStation Camera adds incredible innovation to your gaming." (Jump to the 5 minute 30 seconds mark.)

Sony, unlike Microsoft, decided not to bundle the Camera with the console, allowing consumers to make the choice and keeping the price down for the hardware.

Sounds like Sony is making all the right moves. I'd rather have the camera as an option so I can have it on when I so choose. You never know who could be watching you these days....

Sony already got spanked and learned HARD earned lessons. I am actually really happy to see them so much more pro-consumer this round. Pretty shocked to see Microsoft go so anti-consumer. I'd ask...didn't they watch Sony crash and burn for several years and learn anything from that?

But then you look at how anti-consumer every other area of Microsoft is and there is your answer. It's like the PC division has overrun the Console division and the inmates are running the entire asylum these days.

So, just like the Xbox One Kinect then?
It can be turned off & also unplugged.
