I always thought this should have been a launch feature, but not to worry, it's available now thanks to the latest PlayStation 4 firmware update.

If you have a PlayStation 4 Pro, and you're playing one of those pesky games that haven't been patched for PRO PERFORMANCE, you can now activate 'boost mode' to make them perform better.

Sony is releasing a "Glacier White" version of the new-look, slimline 500GB Playstation 4, launching in Australia on 25 January.

But remember, kids. When you buy a white console, you're really just pre-ordering a yellow one.

We might not be in the era of taking your PlayStation 4 to a shop down the street and getting a mod chip. But ever since Sony announced you could run Linux on the original PlayStation 3 - and subsequently removed it in future iterations - people have been keen on the idea of Linux running on the PS4.

But as a talk at the annual Chaos Communication Congress showed, the PS4 is definitely not a PC. And while that makes things harder, it doesn't mean you can't get Linux going on the PS4 nonetheless.

People are prepared to pay vastly different amounts for quality. For some, $80 for a standard Xbox or PlayStation controller is enough, while the $200 for an Elite is pushing it. Others might be happy to pay $300 or $400 on headphones, but would never spend more than $100 on a gaming mouse.

It's a tricky business, peripherals. And that's the problem facing the SCUF Infinity1 and Infinity4PS, controllers that start at $220 and go up to a staggering $320.

Razer has built a "tournament-grade' controller for the PlayStation 4 — with supposedly better ergonomics than your common or garden DualShock, as well as a bunch of customisable settings and esports-friendly extras. And, y'know, it looks suspiciously like someone chucked an Xbox One controller and a PS4 controller into Photoshop and mucked around with the transparency.

If you don't already have a PS4, and you don't want to shell out $559 for a PS4 Pro, then you may as well get yourself a PS4 Slim. The redesigned PlayStation 4 is usually $439 for a 500GB variant, but this weekend you'll find it for a fair bit less.

There's a moment playing Infamous First Light, as the heroine made of light climbs up a wall in pitch black darkness, that I fully appreciate the hype around the PS4 Pro. The woman is a multicolored bundle of light particles and thanks to HDR, I can make out each particle and note the way they each cast their own vibrant glow on on the red brick wall. Normally, she'd be a big blob of light, but high dynamic range gives you details in moments of extreme brightness and extreme darkness. I'm watching the next big step in video games, and it is extraordinary.

Wondering if the special edition of The Elder Scrolls V is worth splashing your cash on? This video gives a nice side-by side comparison as to just how stunning Skyrim is, and exactly where the improvements have been made.

(Spoilers: It's the grass. The grass is beautiful).

Here it is: the officially licensed Universal Media Remote for PS4, designed to control entertainment apps and the console's Blu-Ray player. The remote uses Bluetooth and can also be setup to control up to three additional devices — including a TV and audio receiver.

Given that the Tokyo Game Show is just around the corner, it's natural for Sony to make some announcements ahead of the show. And while not everything Sony announces this afternoon is expected to make its way to our shores, there should be some new footage and plenty of entertainment nonetheless.
