    PlayStation 4 Controller's Speaker & Headset jack for 3D Sound? (Sony 3D Sound Patent

    http://gamenmotion.blogspot.com/2013...s-speaker.html


    Abstract Methods, apparatus, and computer programs for simulating the source of sound are provided. One method includes operations for determining a location in space of the head of a user utilizing face recognition of images of the user. Further, the method includes an operation for determining a sound for two speakers, and an operation for determining an emanating location in space for the sound, each speaker being associated with one ear of the user. The acoustic signals for each speaker are established based on the location in space of the head, the sound, the emanating location in space, and the auditory characteristics of the user. In addition, the acoustic signals are transmitted to the two speakers. When the acoustic signals are played by the two speakers, the acoustic signals simulate that the sound originated at the emanating location in space. "

    There is a lot of technical info there. I wonder where they are going to go with the speaker on the controller. Me and Monkey Claw were discussing it on the controller reveal thread. Using the speaker for say multiplayer would be an awesome step. You know, if you didn't have a bluetooth headset hooked up. It could help out with all that wash out of sound that you have from chat and game sounds coming from the same source. I'm just curious if that may be the case of if this will be used for Move based sounds like the Wii. I honestly think that would be a waste of space if that is the case. Hopefully we will see soon enough.

    Too many wires.. I'm more comfortable with the wireless stuff. It'd somewhat feel like a step backwards.

    Assuming it's a speaker on the controller...who's to say it's not a microphone?

    It very well could be just speculation mostly because of the likely head phone jack on the bottom. Would be kind of redundant to have a headphone jack only and that not be for voice too. Although it could be for when you don't have the head set on. Guessing for days. Lol 20th hopefully will bring some clarity.

    More importantly, assuming it's real.

    Sounds neat but I want a practical working model of a device that represents the patent before allowing Sony to have it. But it does seem like a pretty cool concept.

    There's definitely a hidden meaning from Sony here. Like a looking glass into the conceptual starting process leading up to what's about to be revealed the 20th.
