1.We have another one that a lot of people have missed even though it’s so simple I’m even stupid enough that i didn’t realize this until probably a year after owning a playstation 4 you can use a phone charger to charge your controller you idiot yes i know a lot of you guys are probably make fun of people who didn’t know in the comments including myself but for a while I had that short playstation 4 cable meeting I had to be so close to my console in order to charge my controller and play at the same time of course you can charge controller / standby mode via the ps4 but sometimes that’s not enough if you have an Android phone with a micro USB charger you can just plug in your controller charge it next to you while you play it make your life 10 times easier yes that is probably one of the more simple life hacks we’ve ever put on a list but seriously some people don’t realize this we actually saw a lot of people on forums and read who had no idea we were pleasantly surprised.
2. On our list we have a real hack you want to hack your ps4 and play pirated games for practically nothing well moved to Brazil yes brazil is legendary for its blade and piracy with over fifty percent of all software licenses in Brazil not being original or legit yes apparently there are retail stores in Brazil offering customers who buy ps4 is to install 10 tired games on their ps4 for about a hundred dollars that being said that is a pretty high price in Brazil but you’re getting a bunch of games and they’re technically free of course we’re not condoning piracy but if you’re one of those crazy people that want your game tacked onto your ps4 and if you want to maximize the use of your hardware you don’t care of having some brazilian guy open it up and alter it well then the possibilities are endless just be sure not to update your console firmware because you know Sonia’s probably right on hackers meals.
3. Listen we are players of video games in the 21st century it’s 2015 now and games need constant updates and patches and it’s awful and terrible and annoying that being said with this newer generation of consoles you can make your life 10 times easier setting up automatic downloads will save your life when you go into settings and switch on automatic update your ps4 system searches for game update system updates and content and if you guys want a ps4 you know there’s always something to download whether it’s a game update the software update a patch anything so if you’re not too concerned about bandwidth or using power definitely leave your PlayStation on standby with this setting enable because stuff will download while you sleep like an angel then when you actually go to play a game you don’t wait and sit there while something download or install because it’s already been done for you whether you like it or not don’t you even realising again it seems like an obvious one but some people out there just don’t know this.
4. Take advantage of this cool trick certain new tvs have a setting called HDMI device link the newer sony bravia model TVs do have this and certain Sam someone’s do – I believe if your TV does have this feature go on your ps4 go to your console settings and switch on enable HDMI device link your newer TV will recognize this and display playstation 4 in the input source list and this will mean you can do a couple cool things with your TV and your console it’s almost like they coexist a little bit better now because if your TV and your ps4 both on standby you can hit your controllers playstation button to turn on the console and it will also turn on the TV and then on the other hand if you’re using the TV to watch television or something switching the input on the playstation 4 input will wake the playstation 4 up from standby mode I don’t know about you but while that only seems like it’s just saving five seconds of turning on the power button it’s a pretty badass feature to have your TV and your playstation 4 talk to each other is pretty nice and it almost feels a bit like a pc so HDMI device link look it up if you got it use that feature.
5.I got a physical hardware trick for you say you bring a game over to a friend’s house and you’re playing it on his ps4 now what if suddenly the power goes out or his playstation just completely stopped working that disk is stuck in the drive right there’s no way you can get it out and sucks for you just have to wait until it can get fixed or you know whatever well it turns out there’s actually a trick there is a screw on the outside that manually releases the disk all you have to do is remove the plastic shiny part of the playstation 4 and it’s right there you can save yourself a lot of trouble there especially with some playstation 4 drives already being kind of fall feet just be careful though the screw is really crappy and small so be careful not to strip the screw or break it because then you’re totally shit out of luck so there you have it guys those were ten ps4 hack / tricks that some of you probably didn’t know we designed this list for you guys to get the maximum you sign of your playstation 4 get through settings hardware tricks whatever so we really hope that you could learn a thing or two and ease your gaming life.
