Certain PlayStation 4 games, while entertaining and unique, were run through with issues such as slowing down of performance, as well as other gaming errors.

Some of these games include Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, as well as Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland. Despite these issues though, the ESRB has given it a rating good enough for PS4, which means that these games could get a shot at revival.

This certain move could help provide for more games made by manufacturer Natsume to be rereleased, from the PlayStation 2 to the PlayStation 4, as the rerelease of both games are a first for the said game maker. While there has yet to be an official statement from Sony, it is expected that one would be released in the latter part of the year for that matter.

In line with this, the PlayStation 4 Pro is one of the most heavily hyped console releases to date. Given the issues of the Harvest Moon, the PlayStation 4 has its own fair share of issues as well, and here are three secret tips and tricks:

1. Some Typing Tips

For typing user or character names, and inputting other data, the most usual means for you to do so is to flick the thumbstick from left to right to find the right string of letters. Instead of doing this, you could actually click the right thumbstick to activate controls for motion of the device.

Through this, all you have to do is hover the cursor over the letter to be inputted. You can also configure the device for other buttons for faster, more efficient typing.

According to, another means for you to type is to use the PlayStation App on the Smartphone, which you can get through the PlayStore or AppStore, and from there make sure that the PS4 could be connected to the same Wi-Fi Network with your phone, and then configure the phone accordingly.

2. Maximize Your Battery

Unbeknownst to a lot of users, the PlayStation 4 controller could actually consume so much battery. The great thing about this is that to help reduce the power consumption, the light could be dimmed.

In order for you to do so, simply go to the home button of your PlayStation, which could be found on the controller, adjust devices and the sound, and then change the settings for the DualShock 4 to "dim".

3. PlayStation 4 Compatibility

According to Business Insider, one of the great things about the PlayStation 4 is that it could be used in conjunction with a lot of other gadgets, apart from the television. You can actually turn yout TV and console simultaneously, by enabling "HDMI device link" on the system panel of settings.

For wireless streaming, you could also allow PS4 games on another computer. To enable this, all you have to do is download the necessary apps on your desktop. Go to the PS4's settings, then play connection settings, and then choose "enable remote play".

Now that you have knowledge on these things that most users don't know, you'll surely have an advantage over the rest. Enjoy your PlayStation 4 Pro, mate.
