Posted by admin | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 16-12-2016

The Playstation 4 is a one of the best game consoles on the market today. It is a gaming powerhouse and it allows you to play Blu-Ray movies as well.

But, as powerful as this game console is, some people do not know how to fully maximize it. Did you know that the Playstation 4 can act as a media hub where you can stream media content?

In today’s article, I will talk about the two apps that will help you stream media on your Playstation 4.

The first app I will talk about is Plex. Plex is a very popular media-streaming app but there are a few things that you need to do in order to set it up. It may be a little cumbersome but the setting up process only needs to be done once and it will be smooth sailing afterward.

The very first thing you need to do is download the Plex Media Server app on your Windows or Mac computer. After that, sign up for a free account on the website.

The next thing to do is configure your Plex Media Server. It is pretty self-explanatory as the program will have all the instructions you need to do in order to set the server up.

If you’re using a router, it is best that you set a manual port instead of an automatic port set up. You have to know what port you’re using and assign that port to the program. Other than that, just follow on screen instructions.

The next thing you should do is download the Plex app on your Playstation 4. Just go to the Playstation Store and search for the Plex app. After downloading the app, it should be installed and it will be located in the TV and Video tab of your game console.

Launch the app and you will be given an alpha-numeric code. Use this code on the Plex Media Server app on your computer and you should be good to go!

You can now pair up your Playstation 4 to your Plex account and you can now use the game console to stream media content.

The other app that allows you to stream media content on your Playstation 4 is the DLNA server app. This app is already embedded in the Plex Media Streaming service and all you have to do is enable it.

Once you enable the DLNA app, it will automatically replace the Plex Media app temporarily.

For most people, they just use Plex as it is better and it offers a massive library of media content, but I am not saying that the DLNA app is bad.

Now that you know which apps you need to install to stream media content on your Playstation 4, you can now stream media from your game console.

Remember, it only takes a few minutes of your time for a lifetime of enjoyment. I hope that this article has helped you stream media content on your Playstation 4.

Nintendo NX is Going To Be A Portable Game Console


Posted by admin | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 07-10-2016

Although Nintendo hasn’t disclosed official information about their upcoming game console, the Nintendo NX, one prominent gaming pundit got information from various sources that the Nintendo NX is actually going to be another portable game console.

According to Eurogamer, they have received key information about the game console from “multiple sources” but they didn’t disclose their identities.

Anyway, aside from the information that the Nintendo NX is a portable game console, the NX is also going to be having a unique feature.

This unique feature is the two detachable controllers. Apparently, there are two side controllers that can be detached from the left and right sides of the game console.

This will make it so that the Nintendo NX will become the TV and the game console while you control the game using the detachable controllers.

I think this is what Shigeru Miyamoto meant about the unique feature that Nintendo doesn’t want their competitors to copy.

So, what powers the Nintendo NX? Well, according to Eurogamer, Nintendo’s upcoming game console will be powered by the all-powerful Nvidia Tegra Graphics processor.

As we all know, Nvidia is one of the best graphics card manufacturers in the world and they are not new when it comes to portable gaming handhelds.

In fact, they’ve even made different tablets that make use of their Tegra line of GPUs, which by the way, are really good gaming platforms.

Anyway, aside from the aforementioned specs, the Nintendo NX will also be using physical game cartridges.

So, those rumors before that Nintendo’s next big game console will be using game cartridges is actually true.

Furthermore, these physical game cartridges can hold up to 32GB of data, which is more than enough for a Blu-Ray title.

Personally, this is actually a good thing; one that is innovative in Nintendo’s part. For them to release a portable game console that has a very powerful beast inside, I think a lot of gaming companies will surely follow suit.

Even though the Nintendo NX is purportedly going to be using physical game cartridges, Eurogamer states that the company might also release digital copies of the games as well.

If these things are to be true, then the Nintendo NX is going to be one of the best game consoles yet.

But, there are some concerns I would like to point out. First of all, the Nintendo NX will not be as powerful or even more powerful than the current game console king which is the Playstation 4.

Amidst rumors that Nintendo’s upcoming game console will beat the competition, I think that they will defeat them using innovation; not just through hardware specs.

Lastly, Nintendo is not shy of trying out new things but if they are going to have a renaissance, the Nintendo NX will have to deliver.

I just want to point out again that the information contained in this article are from Eurogamer and that they have gathered this information through a variety of undisclosed sources. So, take this information with a grain of salt.

Until Nintendo will fully disclose the real information, then and only then can we be confident about the Nintendo NX.
