Sony has a brand new Cloud Remote for the PS4, the device was designed to make using a PS4 as a central entertainment hub a little easier on the user. According to Sony, the Cloud Remote is programmed by the PS4 itself, so you can spend less time looking up remote codes and more time actually enjoying all of your online content. Users can download the PDP Cloud Remote App, which uses Cloud technology to auto-detect your devices connected to the PS4, and the app adjusts everything for you. Now you can drop the two or three remotes that you usually use to stream content from your PS4 and just have the new Cloud Remote on-hand whenever you need it.
On the remote you will find controls for the power button, inputs that you need, and volume controls for TVs connected to the PS4. The remote itself connects via Bluetooth, so you won’t have to worry about any IR sensors tucked behind cabinets or sliding drawers. Of course you will also find buttons for navigating system menus and apps, making it easier to find the streaming service that you prefer and allowing you to start watching your favorite film or series in no time at all.
Players that pick up the new remote will also get a 30-day free trial of the PlayStation Vue Core plan, which is worth $49.99, with the purchase of the Cloud Remote at Amazon. The Playstation Vue Core Plan offers 65 channels of live TV from top networks like ESPN, FX, AMC, Cartoon Network, NFL Network & MLB Network. We should mention that this deal is only available while supplies last, and the offer is only valid for new users only. So you if you currently have Playstation Vue, this promo doesn’t exactly apply to you, but if you don’t, this may be a great way to cut the cord from your cable company and start a new life of streaming all your content online.
The device itself ships with an MSRP of $29.99 and you can already pre-order the device here on Amazon.
