>>323008873 as the one guy who has one, it's used in a few games, racing games use it for head tracking, Until Dawn uses it when you select gesture control scheme, voice commands for the main menu and facial recognition to access your account. games that support the PS Move (literally just the Just Dance games) also use the camera for tracking oh and video for streaming which is it main function.
The DS4's pointer controls used in just Blue Estate work fine without the camera
>>323008873 Video chat Twitch Face recognition Voice commands Controller tracking for player seating
So yeah, it's not really the most useful thing ever but it's not very expensive either, which is more than I can say of the Kinect which costs half the price of an Xbone. You don't need it but it's there if you want it, and it's totally optional.
>>323008873 Screw camera, somebody tell me, is light and touchpad on fucking dualshok 4 were really necessary? All games I play on PS4 use touchpad as fucking big start button. That's it blunder of the century, with such battery life. Also PS4 UI is fucking SHIT. SHIIIIT. >2nd players picks up controller > DO YOU WANT TO LOG IN YOUR PSN ACCOUNT? NO? AS GUEST? OK.
>>323012626 >Even Killzone used it to summon the drone if you swipe at the touchpad with a certain movement. >playing FPS on consoles tearaway maybe, not really interested in getting it close to full price. But that's way too little for built in function, I'd better have more battery life.
>>323012406 >All games I play on PS4 use touchpad as fucking big start button. And what's the problem with that? You actually WANT gimmicks? You are SAD when games like Xenoblade and MonsterHunter3 on the Wii don't require motion controls?
The touchpad is there for devs who want to use it, but in the vast majority of cases Devs and consumers alike don't give a shit about it and use it as a comfy pair of buttons for whatever
Touchpad = 2 extra buttons. The DS4 has 1 more button than Xbone's controller because of it
It also comes in handy for PC emulation, you can use that extra button as the 2x speed toggle, for instance
>blunder of the century, with such battery life. I agree that we should be able to 100% turn of the light, right now you can set it to "dim" and improve battery life by a few hours. But when PSVR comes the controller will have extra functionality because of it. Anyway there should be an option to straight up turn it off while on in use.
> DO YOU WANT TO LOG IN YOUR PSN ACCOUNT? NO? AS GUEST? OK. Now you went full retard. How is this bad? If he has no account, go as a guest. If he has one he can log in and we can play his games. I might have Helldivers and he has N++, so instead of bringing his PS4 over to my place he can just log in into my PS4 and download N++ instead
It's just a very neat featture. It takes you 2 seconds to select "guest" if you don't care, what's the problem?
>>323014835 I want good controllers, with good battery life. DS4 is pathetic. I can't use DS3 with PS4, can't use PS3 arcade sticks for no good reason. There is no analogue to DS4 controller with stripped down functions. >Now you went full retard. How is this bad? sasuga sony defence force It's unneeded hassle. Why the hell someone who just want to play vs in fighting game need to do tedious unneeded procedure each time he turns on controller? >It's just a very neat featture. It takes you 2 seconds to select "guest" if you don't care, what's the problem? that this shit shouldn't exist. That's the problem. You can do that outside the game. Why the fuck game needs to pause, OS giving you pop up to choose this log on bullshit when you just want to play fighting game with someone? Fucking sony apologists dumbasses. You probably will defend PS+ online paywall too. Cause "muh free games"
>>323014835 >It's just a very neat featture. It takes you 2 seconds to select "guest" if you don't care, what's the problem? watch any fighting game tournament with PS4 and then say that there is no any problem there.
>>323011379 I own the camera as well. I do a lot of party chat and it has EXCELLENT mic quality. It has a very nice build and I'm not too upset I haven;t used it with games yet since I got it for about 25$.
>>323015312 >It's unneeded hassle It's a menu with 2 options -click right on the D-pad -click X Done. Time wasted: 2 seconds. I guess they could make guest login the default, but then it would take much longer to log in if you had an account. This way it takes 2 more seconds to log in as a guest but shaves off 15 seconds of going through menus to log in with an account.
Now I read the rest of your comment and you repeat the same thing over and over again. Why are you so butthurt over the guest login? It's just incomprehensible. It's almost as if you need to do it between every match of whichever fighting game you play. It's not like you do it once and then play for hours on end uninterrupted.
>>323015467 >watch any fighting game tournament sorry, I'm not autistic. For 99.5% of players who don't go to fighting tournaments this is completely irrelevant
I still don't know how it would affect you on LAN parties. It takes as much time to select the guest option as it would plugging in the constroller's cable
I need to take a pause now. My brain can't process all of this butthurt over a menu with 2 options that you need to look at for 2 seconds.
>>323016612 I feel so comfy knowing there are people with nervous breakdowns over the most irrelevant shit out there, ya know?
It's just a warm fuzzy feeling, knowing there is a faggot out there that makes a 10minute raging speech in front of his friends whenever they waste 2 seconds logging in as a guest on his PS4, while they have no idea as to why this little-to-no-effort thing makes their friend so mad.
>>323017295 I replied beforehand with a justification as to why this is better than having guest login set as default >I guess they could make guest login the default, but then it would take much longer to log in if you had an account. This way it takes 2 more seconds to log in as a guest but shaves off 15 seconds of going through menus to log in with an account.
You chose to ignore it
So I can only assume you are mad as fuck, because you certainly are. Never in my life has I seen anyone talking about this login, much less be angry over it. This is just hilarious
>>323017621 >sony literally can't do no wrong and PS4 is perfect machine ok >>323017679 >they could they could do a lot of things, yet they chosen the poorest decisions. and I guess nobody allowed to talk bad about those decisions when they are completely situational and exist for "perfect situation" setup and have no correlation with real life situations at all. Implementing an option in setting of console is too much of work, need to take a break and count all those PS+ earnings
>>323018014 All that projection on the 3rd guy that replied. Man you mad
>yet they chosen the poorest decisions. They didn't. It's perfect for me and my friends who actually log in with an account to play each other's games in any PS4. It's a good compromise between time wasted for guests and time wasted for those with an account.
>and have no correlation with real life situations at all. Hey, it was you who mentioned fighting LAN tournaments. Something which 99%+ of players don't participate in. Yours is the "completely situational" case, not mine. I don't see how playing couch co-op with friends who own PS4's has "no correlation with real life situations at all."
I'm sorry if you don't have friends, I guess.
Glad to see the ammounts of butthurt you have over everything playstation-related. Be it PS+ (which none of us mentioned and you are just projecting) or a 2second long menu. You gave your dosh to Sony and you are so butthurt over it. Lovely lovely lovely.
>>323018651 >They didn't. It's perfect for me and my friends who actually log in with an account to play each other's games in any PS4. >It's a good compromise between time wasted for guests and time wasted for those with an account. yeah, implying everyone you'll ever play with have a PS4 - not a poor decision what'so'ever. Sure. >fighting LAN tournaments >LAN tournaments >LAN okay, kiddo
>I'm sorry if you don't have friends, I guess. If I haven't any friends I wouldn't be pissed off on this constant pop up thing. Come on, anon, use logic.
>>323018884 >yeah, implying everyone you'll ever play with have a PS4 I'm not implying that. I'm saying both people exist. Last time I played co-op was a week ago, on a friend's PS4 and he didn't own N++, so I logged with my account and dowloaded it while we played Gauntlet with a 3rd friend that played as a guest.
You can't make a decision that makes it worse for everyone who owns a PS4, or worse for everyone who doesn't. You got to compromise at the middle, with a 2 second long menu. That's what they did.
Anyway I'm out. You just keep repeating the same thing. I've wasted more time than what you're worth, over a non-problem.
Keep ragin', have fun with that.
