Polygon: How to get TV remotes to work with the PS4

PlayStation 4 owners using televisions compatible with HDMI-CEC can navigate the next-gen console's operating system using their television's remote control. Through a series of tests, Polygon found that functionality seems to differ between apps, brands and setups.

these guys are backtracking now after that got owned by that dude on the net? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO

GarrusVakarian1733d ago (Edited 1733d ago )

Hahaha, they are crawling back with a puppy dog look on their faces.

*Shoo's Polygon away*

xHeavYx1733d ago

Polygon still sucks, even if they try to pretend that nothing happened

PoSTedUP1733d ago

nice try, sorry i forget to forgive. consider poly... GONE. removing corrupt industry journalists one website at a time.

zeee1733d ago (Edited 1733d ago )

OMG! Polygon have taken over Kotaku by a long shot and that my friends is no small feat!

These pathetic biased so-called 'journalists' should be banned from and if you think it's just going to be stay this way then you are wrong. It's Sony's turn and someday it'll be MS's turn and that'll be equally wrong as it is today.

If we can't force the mods here to take notice and ban the site then we should do our part. I suggest the following steps:

1. Under "READ FULL STORY", click on the PLUS sign. Select "WTF" under 'Story Quality' and click on "NO" under 'LIKE THIS SITE'?.

2. More importantly, you should simply IGNORE visiting Polygon. Don't visit the site, don't give them the traffic based on which they generate revenue.

Besides, you can always get the SAME information from other websites such as IGN, Giantbomb, Gamespot etc. For instance, you can simply search for "How to make TV remotes work with PS4" and you'll end up getting perhaps even better information from some other, more technically sound website such as etc

Again, this is not about siding with MS or bashing PS4 for no reason. This is simply to deal with the filth that spreads wrong information and call other people "creeps" when they get caught in the act.

Not clicking the link as interested as I am to hear what they have to say.

no pay per click from me.

I can't believe they are backtracking...did they even mention anything about the guy who pointed it out.

Like most people have said here I wish these guys would get banned, people were saying it on that other article but it got failed because apparently it wasn't "gaming" news....despite the site calling Polygon out, something which should be encouraged, was calling out at the end of the day a GAMING website. How much more related to video games can you get.

If ANYONE on here writes for a gaming site please do an article on Polygon...we shouldn't stand for crap journalism, these guys make a living out of this while most of us have to work hard at jobs we most likely hate


Apparently Chris Grant has updated his twitter on this. He told someone that he didn't block Jeremy Conrad for pointing it out but because he was rude about it....RUDE...can you believe that. All the guy did was point it out and call them out for it. Apparently he blocks anyone who posts this video

Has anyone read Polygon comments section or peoples twitter comments....these people are delusional.

good recommendations ZEE +1 helpful bubble

Godmars2901733d ago

Sadly, N4G being based on stories and information from other sites means that they can't take sides when one provider site calls out another.

Then again they stopped accepting any and all Hip Hop Gamer articles.

-Foxtrot1733d ago (Edited 1733d ago )



Well whoever failed the story needs to undo the process, it's not fair when we as a community don't want the site on here anymore...and not just for silly stupid reasons but legit points about how biased and unprofessional they are. Do we really want a site like that on here and making them look high up and professional...most sites see N4G as a gateway for more hits, yeah we could not click on the articles but that's not the point they should be taking off here until they sort themselves out. I mean they managed to get on Metacritic in under a year....that seems suspicious in my opinion

It was an article about a video game website by a video game belongs on here as much as video game movie tie in news for example. It didn't break any of the guidelines.

If they can't take sides then they should of left it alone, failing the story after we approved it, again, as a community, which is what the site is about, is taking sides in my opinion....and it's not our side, it's theirs.

Ezz20131733d ago

why didn't N4G ban this site yet ?

ZodTheRipper1733d ago

Polygon now doing 180's like the company that's sponsoring them.
Next article will be titled "We're not biased... we're not even journalists!"

XisThatKid1733d ago

XisThatKid1733d ago

It's FAR too late for Polygon to be taken seriously about anything, ever.

As for this shameless back-peddling, maybe they should do their research before publishing articles, you know, like a proper website? :/

sigfredod1733d ago

lol trying to get back to the ship? those rats!!!

Kayant1733d ago

Add to that he was banned on twitter.

Oh btw he's a resident on n4g -->

Angels37851733d ago (Edited 1733d ago )

I literally laughed when I read the headline....

Obviously a reason why they're doing this.

AngelicIceDiamond1733d ago

Polygon you guys already failed. Nice try but there's no turning back now.

Especially right after that Chris Grant tweet that's just strait unprofessional.

Mikelarry1733d ago (Edited 1733d ago )

No sense of shame, should he not have apologised and admitted he was wrong but no act like it never happened and try and pass of the knowledge as your own disgusting this guys is gaming journalism at it worst

iamnsuperman1733d ago

I hope the editor (or who ever it was) unblocks the guy who called them out (should say sorry after what they said as well)

Hicken1733d ago

And there's not a word of apology for their misleading people previously. They're literally treating the lie like it never happened.

These guys should be politicians.

Hicken1733d ago

They gave me a warning:

You can browse the site, but you can't participate until you accept the warning.

Hey there J.J Whilst the HDMI CEC does offer limited compatibility it's not the same thing as fully featured remote control support. The interactions which happened offsite between Jeremy Conrad and other individuals are not subject to the Polygon Community Guidelines and as a result the mod team here cannot act upon those comments. We can, however, ask that anyone who comments on our site follows our guidelines, your comment below infringes upon several of them, including: Complaining about coverage: We cover a wide array of topics, not all of which are easy, comfortable, or reflective of your personal views and may touch on issues normally considered 'outside' of gaming such as feminism, sexual assault or religious beliefs. While we're not against discussions of our coverage, comments containing plainly stated accusations of bias, complaints about the frequency of articles on a topic, and complaints about whether something is newsworthy are usually an indication that you're not trying to be a productive member of the community. We'll have words and remove posts to get conversation back on track. This also applies to review scores. Site bashing: Whether it's Polygon, or another website - don't bash them or their staff. It's not cool and it's disrespectful to a lot of people. Be the better person here, please. "I think the problem is that this site claimed this was simply not possible AT ALL, and blocked the guy who called them out, AND called him a creep. Maybe gloating is wrong, but so is a publication promoting a lie, and then not even having the balls to say they were wrong." Please refrain from making statements in the future which fall into these categories. Your acceptance of this message constitutes an agreement to abide by the community guidelines from this moment onwards. If you have any questions you can reach us at [email protected] Thanks Shaun Polygon CM

You must accept the warning before you can continue to participate."

Guys dont give them any clicks just downvote the site.

Drekken1733d ago

What does downvoting the site do for us? I have always done that, but I don't know if it makes a difference.

blackbeld1733d ago

^^^ True.

I also do it every time but it seems to be hopeless. Still I keep doing it to make sure I not regret by not doing it.

BattleTorn1733d ago (Edited 1733d ago )

Yesterday's article against Polygon was complete trash though!!!

I have my PS4 hooked up to my Sony Bravia TV, and the remote did NOT work.

I wouldn't have known how to enable it, if it wasn't for their gaff

Schizoid1733d ago

yeah I didn't know about this feature till yesterday. But I did have to enable it in the settings menu. Works great though...

Mystickay861733d ago

Polygon, You dun goofed! Don't backtrack.

Enemy1733d ago

How many more times do these idiots need to be put on the spot to be banned from N4G? If HipHopGamer got banned here, so should Polygon. Downvoted and will not approve.

admiralvic1733d ago

If they're anything like Kotaku... then they will still be here with the roaches after the end of days.

Drekken1733d ago

Kotaku, what a great site. Review both consoles and they said don't buy yet... yet they tell you to buy all of the games. Consistency isn't important at all to them.
