So when video chat is coming to PS4?

Right now Xbox One has 1080p clean video chat, PS4 doesn't have video chat and camera is only 720p max, not even 1080p. But even 720p PS Camera doesn't save this because it just has no video chat at all.

So, when video chat is coming on Playstation 4?

I don't know. Even if it does get it, I don't think you will personally notice a difference between the PS Camera and Kinect.

What would I do with video chat in a gaming console?

I use it to play games....not chat...

#6 Posted by getyeryayasout (7602 posts) -

It's a little slow in coming since all PS4 owners weren't forced to buy a camera they never wanted in the first place.

Just leave video chat on phones and PCs. And use a damn headset, so you don't pester anyone nearby.

Does Sony Fan even buy peripherals? The Move was flat line on arrival and the camera is no different. No reason for video chat when the camera is not a focus at all for them.

So for games 1080p is not that big of deal vs 720 but video chat(lol) is???

lmao

Who cares about video chat? really? so hopfuly never. I'd rather Sony spend the time improving the OS rather than adding extra (pointless) features.

If i want to video chat (which i don't) i'll use my phone/pc/laptop or tablet... many devices i can do this on.

@Heil68: lol this just shows how bad lemmings want 1080p

right.... so apperently you can see a massive difference in cows 1080p games against xbox 1s 800-900p games.... yet 720p camera and 1080p camera is not noticeable...

wut... if anything a camera will be more noticeable than a game.

Why would you use phone, laptop, table or pc for video chat and low quality video chat? How about sitting in home, playing games, watching movie and video chat 1080p? No need to hold phone or PC on your hand to talk with family or friends..

#18 Posted by Mr-Kutaragi (1967 posts) -

what is 1080p clean video chat? Why would need video chat right now when could be adding other important feature instead? There is still much demand for camera without chat, ps4 camera sells 2x, 3x retail and nobody want broken kinect camera.

Got an Xperia Z1 mate... 1080p all the way

Also unless your devices are from 10 years ago... all laptops/tablets/phones and PC's will be able to video chat in 1080p.

Also i have a stand for my devices... i don't need to hold anything.. They can even be on a stand while i'm playing the superior version of battlefield in on my PS4... the tech mate... the tech in unreal!

Yes you need to hold phone or tablets in your hand... PC is even more stupid.

How about sitting on couch, eating popcorn and talk with friends? or doing something else and talking with someone...

Most people have enough devices that can skype that they probably don't give a shit about this

#24 Posted by Solid_Max13 (3548 posts) -

Who gives a shit I bought my console to play games not Skype, I can Skype on my PC tablet and phone, this thread reals of desperation give me a statistic saying over 40% of people want or use video chat on video game consoles and then you might be taken seriously.

I have video chat on Wii U.

It is the single most useless feature of all time, so it could never show up on PS4, and I wouldn't bat an eyelid.

#27 Posted by Karpetburnz (548 posts) -

At least the PS4 has 1080p games lmfao, this just goes to show how much focus Microsoft has put into other features and NOT games.

I think I've used it about 2 times since I had my WiiU so I can agree with you

What superior tech? Video chat? You mean the technology that's been around since 1999? Here's a news flash, people get gaming consoles to game not Skype when well over 90% of people are using PC's Tablets and Phones as their means of communications for video chat and chat, The console market barely hits a 5% I guarantee you, because no one walks into a best buy asking if PS4 or XB1 does Skype or video chat, they buy it for the simple reason of primarily playing games. Why don't you run off make another thread so it gets locked by mods as usual, it's about as useful as you are around here.

Go Ahead and keep thinking that last gen mentality you got i know your used to ancient ways of doing things on PS systems. But the reality is wait until you see the amount of people doing Twitch streams on Xbox One and doing video chat picture and picture with thier 1080p resolution Kinect cam makes things super easy. I know haters gonna hate but this is how slick things are on Xbox systems.

Lol PS4 has had Twitch since launch, Cows didn't have to wait for it like MS made you, show me a statistic that shows people last gen and this gen want video chat, on their video game consoles, show me the demographics that's above 20%, and it's not bashing, it's common sense no one talks about "wow I can't believe I did video chat on PS4 or XB1 I never knew that was possible" People talk about games, multiplayer experiences, upcoming games and such no one gives a shit about video chat, but according to you this is now the saving grace of the XB1?? I don't even think, that you think before you type with how insanely stupid every logic you bring to every topic is, everyone has brought proof before your eyes you have brought nothing.

because i can skype for free on my laptop without buying a $500 device with a shitty camera i would never use for gaming AND a $60 subscription just to use all the non-gaming features like skype.

You missed the entire point and twist it to pretend I had no point. It has nothing to do with statistics on who is or who aint. It has to do with I said watch when Twitch is on Xbox One and see how many people will use Kinect to do the voice commentary and also picture and picture mode why they narrate their streams. A ton of people will do it so the point was it's going to be convenient and a nice thing for many that do streaming. You knew what my point was you just want to turn a blind eye to anything positive if it's not on your Kaz godstation.

Who the fuck cares, as a Wii U owner the feature for video chat is pretty much useless to me.

Good luck getting Microsoft to port their Skype app to PS4... the only alternative is Google's video chat... good luck getting a port of that for Xbone... such a fragmented market we are going to get.

I have nothing against Xbox, but you and FreedomFree are acting like everyone wants an Xbox for Skype and Video chat, So I asked for a statistic showing how many people use those features on consoles, it's not fucking rocket science, show me a statistic over 20% from reliable source on how many people use those features? Don't twist my words around it's right above there in chat for everyone to see, I'm asking you and Freedom for a statistic showing how many people use these features you're touting as next-gen compared to PS4 since you're so good at digging up information go and find me some info!

I've never said Kinect is the almighty or needed for everyone. I've said that it's nice to have for those that will use it for the convenience for situations just like I stated.

Desperate OP is desperate. PS3 had the feature and I never used it. I use either my phone or tablet when I want to videochat. When I'm at my console I just want to game. Leave the shitty skype calls for my phone, laptop or tablet, it's a completely useless feature in a console.
