#PS4 #Tricks – 13 PS4 Tricks That You Still Might Not Know About : Sure, the PS4 has been around for almost 3 years now but we bet you didn’t even bother to check if you already know all of its tricks hidden right under your nose. Likewise, to those who just saved up enough moolah and finally got their hands on the console, congratulations! You’re just in time to learn its neat tricks on top of its awesome hardware capability to play today’s excellent console titles.
Also, we all know that the PS4 Pro is coming so sales for the PS4 will soon spike just like what happened to the Xbox One sales which skyrocketed after the release of the Xbox One S. So we figured it would be best if we post this list of tricks that will very well come in handy when you smell that ‘brand new’ aroma when unboxing and turning on that console for the first time.
The guys at Looper are kind enough to generate such list and we are happy to summarize and convey it for you. So pause that game and check out these tricks. They might come in handy one day or maybe even right away.
Tip 1 – Charge Your PS4 Controller with A Phone Charger
You’ve read that right. The major improvement for the PS4 over the PS3 is that it does not require a special charger or being plugged in to the console itself just to charge the controller. This is pretty convenient when your couch is set up far away from the system. All you need is to have a convenient power outlet near where you sit, plug that phone charger, and charge that PS4 controller – even while playing!
Tip 2 – Sync Your PS4 to Your TV
If your TV is compatible with the PS4 then you can sync it. If so, go to Settings, System, then tick the box for ‘Enable HDMI Device Link’. You can do a lot of neat stuff like using your TV remote to navigate in your PS4 menus, put the PS4 to rest if your TV is turned off, turn the TV on when turning on the PS4, etc. Pretty neat, huh?
Tip 3 – Use Your Phone as Keyboard for the PS4
By using the PlayStation app, you can connect your phone to the PS4 and use it as keyboard. This is pretty handy when typing long searches, or maybe chatting up with your crew. This method is lot faster than using the Dual Shock 4.
