According to both Kotaku and EDGE, the peripheral will boast a touch pad similar to the one on the PlayStation Vita and a ‘Share’ button. To be honest, we’re struggling to see the purpose of the touch pad at this moment in time, but we’re sure that there’ll be plenty of gimmicky launch software designed to prove its potential. A true PlayStation veteran, Sammy's covered the world of PS gaming for years, with an enormous Trophy count to prove it. The holiday season is approaching and you be doing some traveling which means you won’t always have a big TV screen in front of you.
Here’s is a quick guide to connecting a PS4 controller to a Mac, so you can start playing PS4 games on your computer without the mouse and keyboard. You need to download the right software so your computer will recognize your PS4 controller and allowing you to use a PS4 controller on a Mac. First, open the System Preferences and select the Bluetooth preference panel to open the feature.
After the PS4 controller is connected, hold the PlayStation button down on the controller for a few seconds. Now, reconnect the mini USB cable to your PS4 controller and hold the PlayStation button for 3 seconds again, just like before, then take the cable out.
When the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 received their slim makeovers, it was like two strangers passing in the night: the PS3 Slim traded the gloss and capacitive keys for a matte finish and physical buttons, while the Xbox 360 S adopted the PS3's sheen and chrome trim both.
Like the iconic chestburster, Alienware's DNA is poking its head outThough the overall design may be inspired by Sony and Microsoft, there's still plenty of Alienware DNA to be found.
What you don't get is a lot in the box: just a barebones mouse and keyboard, a user manual and a DVI to VGA adapter. By the way, that dedicated HDMI jack and some special software make setup a breeze: the Alienware X51 is one of the first computers to use the desktop version of Nvidia's Optimus graphics switching technology.
Carefully disconnect the side panel light wire, and take off the door; you now have access to the optical drive, memory, CPU fan duct, and (dual-slot!) GPU bay, which you can remove in any order. One screw and a quick pull on a sliding bracket, disconnect a SATA cable, and out comes the optical drive bay; four more to replace it with a laptop-sized slimline optical drive of your choice.
Two screws and a careful pull on the GPU bay, and out it comes; remove the PCI-E power connector, flip open a couple of handy retaining clips and hold one more open, and you've got a naked graphics card ready to be transplanted with another. Underneath it all, you can yank and replace the Intel H61 motherboard with a Mini-ITX alternative of your choice.
It's not just that the X51 is easy to upgrade, either, it's how well the pieces fit together that truly astounds — like the way the case uses the CPU duct and GPU cooler in unison to direct all the hot air out the rear of the console, or the way the hard drive and optical drive trays latch onto the console so securely with just a single screw. Even so, it's a bit of a bummer that the entry-level X51 doesn't come with the 330W power supply to allow for such upgrades from the get-go. Take Just Cause 2, for example, my favorite mid-range gaming test: where our $1,000 Verge Gaming Rig rended the lush islands of Panau playble at fully maxed settings and 1080p resolution, I had to sacrifice slightly here, dropping the anti-aliasing to 8x and suffering oh-so-slightly more jagged edges to maintain 40+ frames per second.
Similarly, The Witcher 2, and Battlefield 3, which each ran nicely at high levels of detail on our Verge custom rig, both had to be dropped to medium settings to stay above 30 FPS and 40 FPS respectively. I can't say I noticed any stability issues with the X51, though I've only had it for a few days so far. Over the years, there have been a few attempts to build small computers that could nonetheless play hardcore PC games.
Se trata del Wireless Keypad para la PS3, un teclado inalA?mbrico para la PS3 que se monta encima del control. While details about its size and shape are still under wraps, we do have a reasonable idea about what kind of new features the final device will include. It’s thought that the innards of the hardware will include revamped motion tracking technology, presumably on par with the platform holder's portable machine. Some are based upon the existing shape and style of the current DualShock 3, while others lean towards the Xbox 360 controller’s design. I hope they don't cram a bunch of quick time events down our throats ala uncharted golden abyss.
Guess it depends if they market it as a home entertainment hub, or if they'll target gamers more.


After playing Mario Party 2 the other day it reminded me how nice the texture of the thumb stick was, so just a texture like it or the GameCube's thumb stick would be enough. The next best option is to to play PS4 on a Mac and you need to get a PS4 controller on Mac to work before any of this can happen. Release it, and take out the USB mini cable from the controller, but make sure it’s still connected to the Mac. This black tower packs full-size gaming PC components into a chassis only marginally bigger than an original PlayStation 3 — theoretically slotting in alongside your home theatre components to let you play the latest PC games on your TV.
Like the iconic chestburster, it's just lurking beneath the surface, and quite literally sticking its head out. That means not only does the computer attempt to save power by using the onboard Intel graphics when possible, you can also get all the power of that dedicated NVIDIA GPU through the full-size HDMI port, without having to use a special cable or adapter to connect your TV to the graphics card's DVI and mini-HDMI outputs.
By giving the lion's share of space in the case to the GPU and using a PCI-Express riser card to angle the socket parallel to the motherboard, Alienware's managed to fit a full-size, dual-slot graphics card up to nine inches long. We also wouldn't mind a dedicated spot to mount a 2.5-inch solid state drive, and an extra SATA port to connect it. With those components, you can expect a competent mid-range gaming PC that'll blow current-gen consoles out of the water. I criticize because I care: to tell you the truth, these are a pair of the most demanding games available on PC today, and with most PCs that can fit in a home entertainment rack, neither game is particularly playable. After many months of using primarily solid state drive equipped computers, though, it doesn't feel quite as snappy as I'm used to. That compares pretty favorably to the Xbox 360 S: in the same test, it heated up to 108 degrees even when idle.
The HP Firebird most vividly comes to mind, with its dual laptop GPUs, water cooling, RAID array of hard drives, handsome custom case, and moderately outlandish price.
However, since this is a non-weighted average, we reserve the right to tweak the overall score if we feel it doesn't reflect our overall assessment and price of the product. Of course, it’s possible that the manufacturer could go in an entirely different direction. That's the main reason I still don't play fps's on the PS3, always felt weird and awkward.An the Wii U pro controller is actually very well built and one of the best controllers for a Nintendo system in some time. Getting your PS4 controller on Mac wireless to work is a simple process that you can do on your own if you have all the right equipment.
After the software is downloaded, you just need to plug the controller in to start playing. The red LED lights will start to flash, and your Mac will ask for a password. Set a password so that you will remember it in the future if it asks for a password again. When you see the flashing, turn on Bluetooth on your Mac and search for the controller on your computer. The crazy part is that despite the X51's size, it isn't a boutique machine: Alienware claims it's easily upgradable with off-the-shelf components, and the basic model starts at just $699. Simply put, the Alienware X51 is a pastiche of the video game consoles it hopes to complement. Yes, that's an alien head emblem on the front of the case, and a pair of what appear to be translucent talons on either side; each individually lights up in colors of your choice.
That's in addition to 802.11n Wi-Fi, twin DVI video outputs and mini-HDMI on the rear of the graphics card. Dell has historically bundled loads of infrared remotes with its computers, but in what's perhaps the most likely in years to be attached to a TV, you'll need to jury-rig your own to control it from across the room, and since it also doesn't have video inputs or a TV tuner option (nor space to add your own) it's not really suited to be a media center PC anyhow. The raw numbers don't quite stack up to the kind of bang-for-the-buck machine you can build for the same amount of cash, and that's a bit of a shame, but when it comes to pre-built systems even the top-tier X51 we tested is a pretty decent deal. Assuming you'll be hooking up the X51 to an HDTV, you can probably drop the resolution to 720p in exchange for more eye candy: from the distance you'll be playing, it may not make a difference.
Alienware's optimized the BIOS to the point that it only takes a handful of seconds to start loading Windows, but you're still looking at around a full minute to finish booting from the 7200 RPM hard drive, and programs take a moment to load.
Where the Firebird failed and other attempts fizzled before they could reach the market, though, the Alienware X51 has a real chance at life.


The X51 chassis definitely has more bang-for-the-buck potential than Dell's existing four pricing levels will let you exploit.

After about an hour of fps, it kills my right thumb because it's impossible to hold that stuck up while clicking. Generally, to get a PS4 controller on Mac to work, you need to plug the controller into the PC’s USB input and download a specific software.
Your PS4 controller should now show up in the device list, letting you use it with any applications that have support for the controller. With notable exceptions, today's top games are built for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and unless you can't live without the likes of Mario, Solid Snake or Master Chief, you'll likely pick based on the controller you prefer, graphical fidelity, and the distance you sit from your screen. The hefty 12-pound case has matte, rounded black sides that hearken back to the Xbox 360 Elite, cloven diagonally much like the Xbox 360 S, while its shiny center is all original PS3, with the same glossy, dust-attracting black plastic, slot-loading optical drive (albeit with a physical eject button) and glorified vents. You can even set them to trigger when you get email or launch certain programs, for notifications and mood lighting. If you're a component junkie, you really have to see it for yourself, and I'll do my best to show you in the pictures and video above, but know that you could honestly tear down the whole system and put it back together in half an hour if you wanted to, and in almost any order that you choose. Thankfully, there seems to be a good bit of wiggle room with the larger power supply, as I transplanted the 170W+ Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC from our $1,000 Verge Gaming Rig to the X51 with no trouble — just a driver reinstall — and enjoyed substantially higher framerates after doing so.
It'd be nice to add an SSD, but you'll have to swap the existing HDD or ODD if you want to do so.
It's reasonably priced, solidly built, and can be configured to satisfy today's mid-range gaming needs.
None of that changes the fact that Alienware's built a diminutive, desirable gaming PC unlike anything else on the market. The steps for getting a PS4 controller on Mac to work using the correct software is explained in the guide below. Oddly, the eject button doesn't work on our review unit, though discs eject fine, and Alienware tells us it's a fluke. They're neither piercingly bright nor awkwardly showy, but if you'd rather not have them at all, you can also choose "black" to turn all the lights off. If you prefer never to open up your computers, feel free to skip ahead to the Performance section to hear how the machine plays games. If consoles can't cut the mustard and laptops leave you longing for more, the X51 might be the leanback gaming PC you've been looking for. Even though most wireless PS4 controllers come packaged with a USB charge cable, PS4 owners can purchase a PS4 third-party charge cable ($5.29) if missing the component. There's a lot to be said for vegging out on the couch after work with a good game, but consoles don't often play nice with mouse and keyboard, and don't usually render games at true 1080p.
The other thing it borrows from the Xbox, unfortunately, is a truly gigantic external power supply, with around twelve feet of extra-thick cord to ensure you can place the system just about anywhere you like.
As far as noise, the X51's fans are definitely audible under load and the Blu-ray drive adds volume, but I wouldn't characterize either as abnormally loud, and Optimus offloads graphics processing duties onto the onboard Intel HD Graphics 2000 for minor loads, which should also help. It's mildly portable, and can fit into your existing home entertainment setup, though the lack of wireless controls may be an issue for some. Between the weight of the X51 and the bulk of the cord, it may not be as portable as it looks, but it's still a pretty decent alternative to a gaming laptop if you're headed to a LAN party. The sharp angles at the top and bottom of the glossy front panel also channel earlier Alienware desktops, and the company's alien font is displayed prominently on the right side panel. And lest we forget, it's also a fairly powerful home computer, and if you're willing to spend an extra $100, the machine can also be your Blu-ray player.
