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?
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.
I would have liked my BD remote to work, hopefully a new remote will come out soon.
£10 to make, £20 to sell :) At least... I'd expect the margins to be wider than that.
seems like Nyko's remote is poorly rated on Gamestop. Got 1.2 out of 10. It doesn't have a PS button, so user can't turn on PS4, or quit application, etc, etc.
I hope the system will be update someday to support the PS3 media remote. Or even better, controlling PS4 directly via IP control over the same Wi-Fi network.
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?
My Samsung TV and Home Cinema remotes both work with my PS4 in asimilar way to the official remote worked with my PS3
The signal from the remote(s) is picked up by the Tv (or Hoem Cinema) and carried to the PS4 via the HDMI cable. Samsung call it HDMI-CEC or something, other brands call it 'Smart Link' or something similar
I can navigate the PS4's menus, select things, go back and more using my TV remote. Even Works well with the iPlayer app on the PS4
