News by Matt S.

Sony has pushed out an update to the PlayStation 4. Version 6.50 brings one major new feature to the console – the ability to play PlayStation 4 via Remote Play on iOS smartphones and tablets.

All you need to do so is download the update, as well as the PS4 Remote Play app from the App Store. Rather than play with a controller, you’ll be able to play your games using on-screen virtual buttons. So, it won’t be an ideal way to play action games and fighters and the like – just imagine trying to struggle through Devil May Cry 5 or Dead or Alive 6. But for visual novels or turn-based games, this is a great way to kick back when you’re able to play on your TV.

Two other features were brought in with Version 6.50, but both are very minor:

1) You can now choose 720p when you broadcast using the Japanese streaming service, Niconico Live. This service is available only in certain countries and regions.

2) You can now change the button assignment to perform “Enter” operations from the Circle button to the X button. Select (Settings) > [System], and then select the checkbox for [Use X Button for Enter]. This option is available only for specific countries and regions. This is another feature largely for the Japanese audience, where the “circle” button continues to be the default input within a lot of games.
