We all enjoy making life that little bit simpler, don’t we? Performance Designed Products have seemingly come to the rescue with their latest gaming lifestyle tool, the Cloud Remote for the PS4. It connects via Bluetooth, and cloud-assisted programming technology, to your PS4 and provides hassle-free controls for powering on your TV, scanning through programs like Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu.

The overall design of the Cloud Remote features only the necessary buttons that allow users to smoothly use both their PS4 and core TV functionality. The Cloud Remote essentially is meant to make things like using the media playback functions, operating entertainment apps, and TV volume easier and more simplistic.

John Moore, SVP of marketing at Performance Designed Products said in a press release:

“We created the Cloud Remote to address an increasing need for a simpler remote that helps deliver a more streamlined experience for accessing PlayStation 4 system’s media and entertainment apps. In response, we are thrilled to offer a PDP Cloud Remote app that makes it possible for PS4 system owners to quickly set-up and manage all controls under one thumb!”

Let’s take a quick rundown of the Cloud Remote’s key features:

  • Includes controls for power, input, and volume for TVs
  • Hassle-free Cloud-assisted technology for programming remote
  • Connects via Bluetooth to control your PS4 system
  • Access all essential controls under one thumb with a sleek and compact design
  • Features the most important buttons for navigating system menus and apps

I can almost hear people everywhere exclaim “Yet another remote to get stuck/lost down the side of the couch!” But it does look pretty cool and maybe it could make life less uncomplicated or maybe the DualShock 4 is all you need?

The Cloud Remote for the PS4 is officially licensed by Sony Interactive Entertainment America and will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.99. It is available for pre-order now at GameStop and Amazon in North America, but unfortunately, it’s not available outside of the states just yet.
