PlayStation 4 (PS4) replaced PlayStation 3 (PS3) in 2013 as Sony’s flagship video game console. It’s a direct competitor to Microsoft’s Xbox One and Nintendo’s Wii U. Every PS4 comes with a Dualshock 4 wireless controller, which features a six-axis sensor, touch pad, and SHARE button.

The console’s connectivity options and tech specs include HDMI out, digital out (optical audio) Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, Blu-ray/DVD optical drive, 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, an eight core X86 CPU, and 500GB/1TB storage capacities.

Roughly 1-year after the makers of LittleBigPlanet announced early access availability to its Dreams game, Media Molecule has begun paving a way for players to make money by selling their own creations. Perhaps the most interesting part of this news is that Media Molecule states content made is owned solely by its creator, allowing any sales to be negotiated without a need to split revenue.

Sony PlayStation 4 Stories January 24

expiredFor $36, an extra Sony DualShock 4 will let you game with a friend (Orig. $60)

ANTOnline via Rakuten is offering the Sony DualShock 4 PlayStation Controller for $35.99 shipped when coupon code ANT4 has been applied during checkout. Note: You will need to be logged in to a free Rakuten account to use this code. Having retailed for $60, this controller can currently be found at Amazon for $46. Today’s offer beats our last mention by $1 and comes within $2 of the lowest price we’ve tracked. While I love my Nintendo Switch, I have found the DualShock 4 to offer a much more comfortable gaming experience. If you have yet to own a second DualShock 4 controller, this deal gives you an inexpensive way to cash in on couch co-op opportunities. Every Borderlands game sports split-screen co-op, making that series a great place to get started. Rated 4.6/5 stars.

expiredEmbrace couch co-op with an extra Sony DualShock 4 Controller: $37 (Orig. $60)

ANTOnline via Rakuten is offering the Sony DualShock 4 PlayStation Controller for $36.99 shipped when coupon code ANT4 has been applied during checkout. Note: You will need to be logged in to a free Rakuten account to use this code. Today’s deal slashes 40% off the original price and is a $10 savings compared to Amazon’s current offer. This deal is prominently among the best pricing we’ve tracked. I may be biased, but Sony’s DualShock 4 is the most comfortable controller I’ve ever used. If I could use it on every console, I would. Since most PlayStation 4 bundles ship with just one controller, this can leave you dead in the water when a charge runs out or you want to play split screen with a friend. Rated 4.6/5 stars.

While online multiplayer support has paved the way for friends to game with each other no matter where they are, it does seem to have taken some of focus away from couch co-op support in many games. Thankfully a Fortnite update has been pushed out today that hopefully signals a shift towards local split-screen support in other games too.

There are some limitations when it comes to the new feature, but it is Epic Games’ first attempt and the company has promised to continue improving it. Continue reading to find out everything we know. expand full story
