Videos: DualShock 4 Controller Mod Offers Portable PS4 Gaming

200°
10w ago - Below are some videos on a PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 (DS4) controller modification that offers portable PS4 gaming from FamilyGamerTV via YouTube.

To quote via Forbes (linked above): "Controlling a Vita and Dual Shock 4 improves the experience more than you might imagine. Hack them together like my daughter did and you have a new way to play PlayStation 4 games on the go - big bright screen, controller sticks, lights and rumble.

While console battles excite and drive avid gamers to buy technology early, it’s not until these devices find themselves battered at the bottom of toy boxes that we really know how valuable they are.

It’s obvious that the DS is a big success in the families I work with, not just because of the sales curve but seeing them covered in stickers, half falling apart and with an old pen replacing the stylus. Like writing their names on the underside of favorite toys, this kind of treatment is a child’s way of saying they love something.

Both grown-ups and children have been increasingly using the PlayStation Vita, but it wasn’t until this weekend that the little device really came of age in our household. It felt like we finally found some ways to use it that really fitted how we wanted to game as a family.

PS4 Mod with 2 TB External SSHD Drive, Better / Cooler Performance

500°
13w ago - Following up on How to Swap In / Upgrade a PS4 HDD, today Paul Statham (aka Placebo) shared how to modify the PS4 to run with a 2 TB External SSHD drive, which he claims boosts better and cooler performance.

To quote: "Paul Statham, who also happens to be Community and PR Manager at ARMA III Developer Bohemia Interactive, is one of those gamers, and decided that the tiny 500 GB 2.5″ HDD provided with the PS4 wasn’t enough for his taste, so he set out to replace it with a massive 3.5″ 2 TB Solid State Hybrid drive.

You’re probably asking yourself: “How the hell did he fit that in the console? It’s too big.” And in fact he didn’t. He purchased a few spare parts and actually mounted the drive externally, thanks to creativity and a bit of technical knowledge.

Modifying the console like that has a few advantages: first of all 3.5″ drives have a cheaper cost per gigabyte than 2.5″ ones, and the SSHD offered also provides better performance.

The issue is that the internal...

400°
18w ago - Hi guys, long time and here is a video of my (Frago) PlayStation 4 / PS4 Fan Mod demonstration for those interested!

Following up on the recent PlayStation 4 Thermal Images, I just received my PS4 like a lot of people and because I know that after 2-3 years the overheating problems will come I opened and I did the same mod like PS3 in PS4!!!

Why to leave my PS4 to be 47-48 Celsius when I can leave it 31-33? I don't want my motherboard and my CPU-GPU heated at all!!!

So Lets Start:

First see the video, you will see that with stock fan speed the PS4 reach from 45 to 48 Celsius in a not heavy game and you can see with fan mod and with 10% more fan speed the PS4 drop down to 31-33 Celsius with the same game.

Watch the video that I prepare for you and then look at pictures for guide:

What I Used:

  • 1m thick cable
  • 1 Trimmer 220k for fan control

Guide:

I took the grey cable from motherboard...
 

BiteYourPlayer v1.0 Beta PS4 Media Player HTML Mod is Released

18w ago - Following up on How to Play Media Files on Your PS4 by $n!pR, today Italian PlayStation 4 developers BiteYourConsole have created BiteYourPlayer v1.0 Beta which is a PS4 Media Player HTML Mod with details below.

Download: hfs.rar (Http File Server v2.2f - no setup) / BiteYourPlayer.rar

To quote, roughly translated: The new PlayStation 4 is equipped with a web browser from all over, maybe one of the fastest on a console from the living room, and so that BiteYourConsole jumped at the potential offered by a language such as HTML5.

With a speech of this magnitude we were able to make a simple but potential movie player in mp4 format (format commonly used for watching movies via smartphone and PlayStation Portable).

To run the application needs a Http Server, we have chosen HTTP File Server (HFS) that once started will allow us to be able to watch our video from any device connected to our Wi-Fi network.
