On Thursday this week, Sony unveiled a new universal remote for the PlayStation 4 which will control the console as well as up to three AV devices. The PS4 universal remote will go on sale later this month in the US for $30 and will work with Netflix, HBO Go, Crunchyroll, Twitch and YouTube.

Something interesting is that it uses Bluetooth as apposed to IR to communicate with the devices and will replace the DualShock controller for apps that aren’t games, more TV oriented ones instead.
