The PlayStation 4 has everything you need to act as your primary gaming and streaming device—except a decent remote control. The DualShock 4 is limited when it comes to navigating your streaming apps and typing quickly. Most PlayStation 4 remotes are designed to connect to your console via Bluetooth, and some may even be able to control other Bluetooth or IR devices like your TV or surround sound system. Not all PlayStation 4 remotes include a keyboard, but this may not be something you’re looking for. Officially licensed SONY remotes are your best bet, but some universal remotes can work just as well for a lower price.
