PS4 remote control

14 Replies 3,334 Views Created 18-08-2013

Will the PS4 have a remote control?

 

I used my PS2 remote to control the PS2 and when the PS3 came out I used my PS3 remote control 99% of the time to control my PlayTV etc

 

Is there plans for a PS4 remote?

Kinda hope the PS3 remote will work. I got one and use it for blurays etc... and its great. Be a shame to have to buy another one.

Re: PS4 remote control

I'd like to have the BD remote work onnPS4 as trade in for will be pennies and it works really well and Move works then why not I say.


I am dyslexic, and a bad typist too. Please bear with me if my spelling's a bit off. I do try. Thanks.

Re: PS4 remote control

Pretty unfair to compare Move to a Blu-ray control. Move is a game control, that cost a shedload to develop, and is pretty much spot on in terms of tech.

 

The PS3 remote will be no better than the PS4 remote, but it'll cost peanuts to design, peanuts to make, and will easily bring in (I would guess) 100% profit per unit sold.

 

We'll see a PS4 control, and it will be £25-30. Just like that lil plastic stand... I reckon that will be £10-15.

Re: PS4 remote control

Is there no support for the BD Remote I used with my PS3's? Why not? I get it that the controller is an upgrade and not backwards compatible with ps3's controllers. Not being able to play ps3 games on the ps4 was an unexpected turd that I guess I should have reseached before I purchased the console. Why hate the upgrader?

Re: PS4 remote control

I totally agree that for a system that is designed to sit in the living room and therefore be a games console and a blu ray player not having a remote control is poor. I know my girlfriend who has no interest in gaming but does want to watch films will be less than impressed and if the PS4 is to become really popular it has to have a broad appeal to a household and not just a gamer.

It wont stop me buying a PS4 but not allowing people to use the PS3 remote strikes as a low blow as surely its a software issue and easily solvable?

I would have liked my BD remote to work, hopefully a new remote will come out soon.

£10 to make, £20 to sell  :smileyhappy: At least... I'd expect the margins to be wider than that.
