In this blog, we highlight PlayStation 4 tips and tricks that you can use to make the best use out of your Sony video gaming console. Whether it’s get a PS4 fan or buy a nice accessory, these are the PS4 tips you need. Some of these PS4 tricks can be used with or without accessories.
- Using Headphones with your console – contrary to common misconception, you don’t need to purchase a pair of expensive gaming headphones just to enjoy wireless gaming audio on the PlayStation 4. The PS4 is equipped with a cool feature that sends out all audio and chat signals to the headphones that you plug-in to the controller. This will work with just about any pair of headphones, so you don’t necessarily need to invest a hundred or so bucks on a new pair.
- Using Mouse & Keyboard with the PlayStation 4 – want to make use of a mouse or keyboard with the PlayStation 4? If your accessory is USB, you simply just need to plug it in and then tell your console what profile it’s been lined to. You may also be able to use a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard by navigating to Settings>Devices>Bluetooth Devices. This allows the console to search for devices that it can pair with.
- Pre-Ordering on PSN so as to Preload Games – if you are not buying your video games digitally, you know will have no problem inserting the disc and getting started. But if you do, it can take quite a considerable amount of time to download them. Rather than just having to wait for the release date to get the games you’re looking for, you might want to preload the game at least 24 hours before it’s officially released so that you can get started with the game play as soon as the clock hits midnight. This can be down by preordering the particular game you’re interested in at the PSN store.
- Use PS App as a Remote Secondary Screen – if you’re looking for additional control of your console, you can download the iPhone, Android and iPad PlayStation app. This allows you to do a number of things, although it doesn’t specifically let you access Remote Play. Still, you’ll be able to employ your iPhone or Android device as some sort of remote control cool for some handy PS4 functions. You can also use it as a second screen in some video games such as Madden 15.
