Re: PS4 and Harmony

Logitech has not yet released any plans on including the PS4 and is currently not officially supported. Since there is a lot of interest in this, I imagine that we should be hearing an update from Support at some point soon

No it will not work with the PS3 adapter.

The Ultimate will not support the PS3 adapter, but you don't need one! It supports the PS3 natively (Bluetooth)

Yea...the Ultimate doesn't need the adapter anyways....I just wonder if the bluetooth commands from the Ultimate hub would work directly with the PS4

Re: PS4 and Harmony

Logitech's current official position is that it does not support the PS4. So, it would be at your own risk. Someone, no doubt, will experiment and let us know!

Re: PS4 and Harmony

Sony has already told us PS3 bluetooth commands and adapters will not work on the PS4.

 

Also realize the PS4 is going to be very limited as a media device, pretty much playing just discs and a little streaming (Netflix). It's probably time to switch to a dedicated blu-ray player for media, and use the PS4 for gaming only, as Sony has apparently designed it. Standalone players have many advantages over the PS3 and PS4, like universal remote compatibility without expensive adapters, silence, low power use, more streaming capabilities, speed, convenience, much lower price. A sub $100 Sony 5100 will blow the doors off a PS3 and PS4 when it comes to media.

Agreed....but that's not really the point. It's a device in my media cabinet with a dedicated input on my receiver. I want to hit a button and have it all start up...PS4 included.
