Finally, after almost 3 years on sale, the PlayStation 4 is finally getting an officially licenced remote, letting players actually use their gaming controllers for, well gaming.
“The Universal Media Remote is the perfect device for all the family to unlock their favourite content on PlayStation 4. Modelled on the traditional TV remote, it makes navigating your favourite entertainment apps feel familiar and easy. It’s a natural addition to our product range, and a perfect stocking filler as we lead in to Christmas,” said Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia and New Zealand.
Produced by PDP, the Universal Media Remote is designed to give users a more convenient and intuitive way to navigate and control their favourite PS4™ entertainment Apps and Blu-Ray Disc player right from your couch. The remote uses Bluetooth to control your PS4 system and can also be setup to control up to three additional devices, including a TV and audio receiver.
The PlayStation Universal Media Remote is available in stores now with a recommended retail price of $49.95 AUD.
