"We should have more clearly explained why this function was being rolled out", posted Catherine.
Unlike Sony, Microsoft also has a more-affordable next-gen option in the form Xbox Series S - that costs Rs 34,990 - though it is a relatively more toned-down console - while Sony's PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition are virtually the same consoles.
Here is the statement in full. Our department works every day to create the best possible gaming experience for our community on PlayStation Network. Again, the goal for the Consumer Experience Team is to make all players feel safe while playing online, and selectively allowing players to opt out would defeat the objective.
Managing online safety is an important part of ensuring that.
Alongside the PlayStation 5 prices, Sony has revealed the pricing of games coming to the new-generation consoles. Its sole goal is to help in reporting of inappropriate behavior, including actions that violate our Community Code of Conduct.
PlayStation gamers learned about this new function in an unexpected way following the recent PS4 8.00 system update.
Jensen apologized for not communicating the new feature earlier. Despite the lower price, worth noting that the Xbox Series S does not bring the same hardware as its big brother and isn't on par with any of the two PS5 versions. The PS5's new voice chat reporting function will allow players to add a recorded audio clip up to 40 seconds-20 seconds of the main conversation and 10 seconds on either side of the selected clip for added context-in order to help the Consumer Experience Team effectively handle the report and take the necessary action.
Instead, the company says the feature will continuously record the last five minutes of any private voice chat.
These reports can be submitted directly through the PlayStation 5 console, and will be sent to our Consumer Experience team for moderation, who will then listen to the recording and take action, if needed. Because Sony says it wants "all users to feel safe while playing with others online, not just those who choose to activate".
"To all my Indian followers, as I said in the past, today is Mid-October and Sony @PlayStationIN informs you about the new #PS5 release date in INDIA", reads his tweet.
