Sony’s PlayStation 4 Finally Gets an Official Media Remote Controller
Gabriel Roşu / 4 years ago
PlayStation 4 users might be disappointed that they cannot control their media on the console as they did on their PlayStation 3. Sony did not announce a media remote controller for their latest console, but things might be looking up for PS4 users.
It looks like DPD, a video game accessory company, has made an officially licensed PlayStation 4 media remote. The remote has cropped up on Amazon and GameStop and it really looks promising for those who want to control their media content on the PS4 like they do with their TV.
PDP’s remote is said to connect to the console via Bluetooth, but it can do more than just that. It even has a feature that allows it to be connected to up to four devices via Bluetooth. So you can connect four devices, including your console, and have them be controlled by just one remote. However, the good news does not stop here.
In addition to the Bluetooth feature, PDP’s remote control even has infrared technology and is able to control your TV, set-top box, and audio receiver. Also, I know that Best Buy released a similar product, the Insignia, but the remote is not officially licensed like DPD’s version. Besides, the Insignia seems to cost $19,99 and once DPD’s remote gets launched this fall, it’s said that it will come with a $30 price tag. So is it worth the extra $10? What do you think?
