Sony has announced that it will launch a Universal Media Remote for PlayStation 4 later this October that allows users to turn on the console, navigate the interface and apps, play Blu-ray discs and DVDs.
The $30 Bluetooth-enabled remote can also control up to three additional devices, such as a TV, set-top box and audio receiver.
“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
The company says that it will support a range of apps at launch, and more will be added later. Initially, it will work with Blu-ray Disc Player, Crunchyroll, FUNimation, HBO GO, Media Player, NBA GAME TIME, Netflix, NFL Sunday Ticket, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Vue, Twitch and YouTube.
