PS5 Records Your Voice The Moment You Earn A Trophy

Ever since the release of the PS4 it’s a very common and well known feature that the console captures a screenshot the moment you earn a trophy. The PS5 takes that to the next level though, with reports that it records your voice the moment you gain an in-game trophy.

To be honest, after a while the novelty of the PS4 screenshot soon wore off pretty quickly, as the automatic screenshots that were taken by the console were often blurry and poorly taken.  After a while I – like lots of gamers – soon turned this particular feature off.

The PS5 takes this feature to another level though, and it’s one you need to be aware of. Most of us will know that the PS5 captures earned trophies with a short video clip, but did you know it includes any sound you’ve made?

What some gamers might not know is that the new-gen console also records your voice the moment you earn a trophy.

A video was recently shared on Reddit when a player finally defeated the Tower Knight boss in the Demon’s Souls remake, and to say that he was happy would be an understatement.

Even though I have not finished Bloodborne yet, I have defeated a few bosses. Oddly enough I struggled more on the prior Cleric Beast boss fight then I did the infamous Father Gascoigne.

When I finally defeated any of those two bosses in Bloodborne I would have shouted all kinds of profanities in celebration.

However the video shared on Reddit was very light-hearted with no profanities being slurred as it was clearly an epic and wholesome moment for the gamer in question.

Seemingly the gamer had no idea that the PS5 was recording the audio during this epic moment.

First time Souls player. I didn’t realise that the PS5 records your microphone’s audio whenever you get a trophy. Whoops,” posted the joyous player on Reddit.

Fellow gamers were quick to congratulate the gamer on their triumphant victory.

Nothing feels better than taking down a Souls boss. Welcome to the club, slayer of demons.” said one Reddit user.

So if you have this feature activated on your PlayStation 5 please keep in mind that the console is listening so you might want to watch your language.
