PS4: Kinect-style gesture navigation will feature via PlayStation Eye, confirms Ito

PlayStations 4's camera bar will allow for gesture-based menu navigation, similar to Microsoft's Kinect format, Sony's Masayasu Ito has confirmed.

Ito confirmed the feature during a Tokyo Games Show roundtable event today, and stressed that the mechanic could be established and expanded upon through future updates. Ito added, "but it could go deeper," but couldn't provide any further insight.

The PlayStation Eye camera bar allows for voice and facial recognition, and with gesture control combined, seems to offer a similar suite of uses to Microsoft's new Kinect sensor.

What do you think of the above? Will you use the camera bar? Let us know below.
