PS4 XIM4 - use wireless hijacker?
« on: 01:58 AM - 01/28/14 »
Was thinking... with the xbox one and ps4 smartphone apps, it allows you to use buttons and some control functions through the app on your smartphone via a wireless connection to the consoles.

So while the PS4 doesn't allow wired controller communication [or maybe it does, but no 3rd part wired controllers out yet], and does everything wireless even with cord plugged in, couldn't you just hijack the input communication between the controller and the ps4 and emulate in a xim device or smartphone app which then outputs that back wirelessly?

I mean if the PS and Smartglass apps do it, then its likely not too difficult to replicate?
