Not to be too much OT, but these Kinect settings are interesting. Full credits to Sikamikanico. More of this and impressions here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...&postcount=501

That's pretty cool. It's great to finally be able to say thank you. It would be nice if there was a "no problem" response.

Does yelling medic just trigger the game to play the medic soundbit? or does it broadcast your actual yell to the players

Hmm, headtracking on a tv never seems useful. Leaning might be neat though. Voice commands while playing multiplayer could get annoying to hear over a headset.

That's called the voice chat as far as I know.

What about PS Camera? Does it enable same/similar functions? Aside from voice commands, which shouldn't require anything special as the DS4 has a microphone...

I think on PS4 the leaning is done by tilting the controller.

Yeah the thank you is a nice touch for people who don't want to voice chat.

Head tracking and free look? If that is what I think it is and it works, this could get me to warm up to Kinect.

DICE mentioned that they were experimenting with using the DS4's gyroscope for lean on, so I'd assume it's included that way if not through the new PSEye.

I played a decent amount (though admittedly only a fraction of my overall time) of Forza 4 using a wheel and headtracking on the original Kinect. It worked perfectly for my physical setup, and did add something to that style of play. I'd like to know how it "feels" in a proper setup with Battlefield 4 with the newer Kinect.

This is great. I use TrackIR extensively on the PC for flight simulator games and FPS's like ArmA, so I'm already used to my head/body movements when playing. What this really needs is something (a button press on the control preferably) to turn this on and off on the fly.

Imagine my wife walking past me and seeing me leaning from side to side standing in the middle of the room holding a controller screaming for a MEDIC or MORE AMMO.

Lol forreal? My girlfriend would just laugh at me. Wouldn't be embarrassed though.

Then again I do this anyway while playing online without kinect

So playing shootygames is not embarrasing, but talking and playing shootygame is?

Redundant in what way? Imagine in multi-player, if you were assault class and were really low on health, you could just say "medic" or "flag medic" and an icon would show up over your head for other players (presumably medics) indicating that you wanted a heal. I mean you could do this with a few button presses, but saying it sort of seems like less effort.

Yep this, my wife and kids were run for the hills if I was moving around the room like I am on a boat while yelling " medic " etc in obligatory Arnie impression!! ( actually sounds quite fun now I think of it!!!)

how does head tracking work with the TV being in a stationary position?

isn't this already done automatically in BF3? I guess the other commands would be helpful like ammo, and vehicle requests. but they're still done with the back/select button on BF3

I was once gaming with a window wide open in summer and there were some people standing downstairs at the shop that is there. After a very fierce round of Seiene Crossing which we won by 5 or so tickets, I shouted to my friends online "That will teach them, those [swear word]!" Suddenly I realized somebody was clapping. It was the people at the shop. I felt very embarassed...

On topic though, I think looking around will work only in vehicles, mostly choppers and jets. It can be a cool feature if made well. Looking around while running would be difficult.

Actually assault class IS a medic. Anyway, this is done by pressing SELECT (it's context sensitive) in BF3 and R2 with a selection of options in BF4. Voice commands are neat but only for people who don't want to talk online. If you talk to people, it's quite pointless.
