Sony's laser focus on gaming may have won it the first part of this generation, but the PlayStation 4 has been lacking in certain areas as a consequence. It's amazing, then, that the system's only just getting a remote, which is set to release in North America on 31st October. The officially licensed device – which can be pre-ordered for $29.99 – includes all of the inputs that you'd ordinarily find on a DualShock 4, in addition to customary media navigation options and more.

The controller can be paired with up to four unique appliances – a television, set-top box, audio receiver, and, of course, PS4 – and can be used to turn on and off your console with ease. It's got a nice ergonomic design, complete with the system's logo on the rear. It's perhaps a little pricey, but if you've been looking for a one-stop shop remote that's compatible with Sony's new-gen system, then you're probably not going to find one that's better than this. Sadly, it doesn't appear to be available in Europe just yet.
