People are all about the Death Stranding PS4 Pro bundle, which features a new PS4 controller that looks a lot like the jar Norman Reedus carries a baby named BB. What possessed director Hideo Kojima to remind of us imprisoned jar infants, we may never know, but it looks like Kojima is taking things a step further than we expected. According to a tweet from Kojima, the baby will also be able to make noises come out of your controller.
We’re not sure if any PS4 Dualshock controller can do this, or if it’s just the special edition. That said, plenty of other games use the Dualshock’s speaker to add a little extra audio to the experience, such as NBA 2K’s score buzzer or Shadow of Mordor’s ghostly whispers. Some folks were upset that BB couldn’t be seen inside the new Death Stranding bundle controller, but maybe this will begin to make up for it.

We can only imagine what sounds BB will make, though. Typical baby cooing or something weirder? Kojima is known for implementing some of gaming’s weirdest mechanics into his stories, most notably the Metal Gear Solid boss Psycho Mantis and his “mind” reading abilities.
Death Stranding is out on November 8, 2019. Keep up with all things Kojima via IGN’s Death Stranding hub page.
