Sony has recently unveiled the Universal Media Remote for PS4 which will be available in the U.S., Canada and Mexico later this month.
The remote control will let you turn on the system, navigate the menus, and control video content from Bluray videos, DVDs, and will also let you control video playback on entertainment apps like Netflix and HBO GO. And like the DualShock 4, the PS4 remote also has SHARE, OPTIONS, and the PS buttons.
The PS4 Universal Remote uses Bluetooth to control the PS4 and and can be setup so that it will be able to control up to 3 devices such as, but not limited to, a TV, you Cable Box, and your Audio Receiver.
At launch, the PS4 remote control will be fully compatible with the following apps:
- Blu-ray Disc Player
- HBO GO
- Media Player
- NBA GAME TIME
- NFL Sunday Ticket

- PlayStation Vue
Sony says that more will come later, most likely via a firmware update for the PS4.
