Happy holidays, everyone! I know a lot of you may be new PS4 owners, so I wanted to welcome you to the PlayStation Nation and offer up a little not-so-secret pro tip to help you out while you’re gaming: Docs for PlayStation.
If you’re like me, you don’t like having to search through a paper instruction manual or scour the internet to find game info and the controller guide for your new game. With Docs for PlayStation, you’ve got a one-stop destination where you can access what you need right from your console, smartphone, tablet, or PC.
Docs launched alongside PS4 last November and it has replaced printed manuals for first-party PlayStation titles, as well as select third-party games. You might have used Docs and not even realized it — you can find the digital manuals on PS4 in a game’s Live Tile (press down when you have highlighted a game on PS4’s Dynamic Menu). Once you’re in, you’ll find guides, tutorials, detailed maps, the latest info on DLC or just a quick controller reference guide.
And if you’re playing and don’t want to pause your game, just go to Docs for PlayStation on your smartphone, tablet, or computer via a web browser, and you’ll find the same content optimized for whichever device you’re using. The website is quick, responsive, and dynamic, so it looks great and is easy to navigate no matter what device you’re on.
We’ve got some cool things planned for Docs in 2015 — with an eye on bringing premium content like strategy guides, art books, magazines, trophy hunter guides, and more to the platform. Give it a try when you’re firing up inFAMOUS First Light or LittleBigPlanet 3 and bookmark it so it’s only a click away when you need it. What type of content would you like to see added to Docs for PlayStation?
