The wait is almost over, folks.
The days of crippling confusion having to press the circle button to pause videos are now numbered, as Sony has announced that the PS4's finally getting the universal media remote it desperately needs. (See here.)
The remote will run off Bluetooth and be compatible at launch with most of the big Playstation 4 media apps so far, including the Blu Ray player, Media Player, Netflix, YouTube, Twitch, HBO GO, and a bunch of others. Conspicuously, Hulu, Amazon, and Spotify aren't on the list, but Sony promises they're not done with compatibility yet. It can also be set up to control up to three other devices.
The remote will be in store on October 27th for $29.99
