PlayStation 4


 

If you use your PlayStation 4 for Twitch, Netflix, or YouTube as often as you use it for games, Sony may have the perfect product for you.

Dubbed the Cloud Remote for PS4, this device is a combination of a TV remote control and a PS4 controller. It’s shaped like a TV remote, so you won’t use it for actual gaming, but it comes with buttons built in to replicate the DualShock 4’s triangle, circle, square, x, L1, L2, R1, and R2 buttons.

That means that, while you’re using this remote as a regular TV remote—changing the input channel, adjusting the volume, hitting play and pause—you can also easily navigate the menu on your PlayStation 4 without having to stop and pick up your PS4 controller. If you’re using your PS4 to watch video, it’s perfect.

The Cloud Remote comes with a 30-day free trial of the PlayStation Vue Core plan, granting access to TV channels like ESPN and Cartoon Network through your console.

The Cloud Remote costs $29.99.

Emma’s early gaming was mostly done in secret, as the only gamer in a family of normal people. She still retains skills from this dark period in her life, such as the ability to teleport instantly across the house away from the computer, and holds a gold medal in the Olympic sport of “Hide the Gameboy.” Sorry, Mom, now you know.
