If you were looking for an update to PDP's basic PS4 media remote, you're in luck: The new version, announced today, uses "advanced Cloud technology" to automatically detect all the devices connected to your console to help you program them at your whim. In theory, this makes it easier to track and link up all the disparate parts of your entertainment diaspora.

Otherwise, it looks and costs (at $30) much like its predecessor. The layout is almost identical, though it does opt for more centralized 'share' and 'options' buttons along with a new volume control in the center. But if you're looking to replace an old one or are tired of yanking around your gamepad to manage your movies and shows, the PS4 Cloud Remote could be for you. Buy it at GameStop or Amazon to get a 30-day trial of PS Vue Core plan.
