I don't think it's out anywhere yet. Frys keeps changing the release date.

The ps4 probably needs an update to get more bluetooth devices to work

Two things to note. I have seen reports that the ps3 sony bluetooth remote now is able to connect to the ps4, but doesn't work otherwise. Probably something in a recent update.

Also, netflix recently updated the ps4 app and hdmi cec now works somewhat with it, but you still can't use the back button, which is a big problem. At least the amazon video app works well, but not being to fully control netflix without a controller continues to hold back the ps4 from being an all around media player.

There is a new remote out with dongle:

http://www.amazon.com/ButterFox-Blue.../dp/B00LSIR2H2

Can't find any info about besides the one review. The encouraging thing is in the review is apparently you can navigate netflix and other apps, including the back button, which has not been possible in any remote solution, until perhaps now. The downfall remains the inability to open the ps4 menu and go back to the main ps4 navigation screen. Still, if this remote does what it suggests, combined with hdmi cec controls for powering on/off, we may not be far away from a complete remote solution.

I may give this one a shot.

Any updates on this, this seems ridiculous that I can control every other device I throw at my Harmony except a PS4, feels like were going backwards here

I really hate this. I can either use my Xbox One and put up with an inferior Blu-ray app that my Harmony can control or I can use my PS4 with better Blu-ray playback but have to use a game controller with a freaking flash light built into it. Maybe I should just give up and break out the PS3 again.

Samsung UA55HU9000, Klipsch Quintet 5.1, Onkyo TX-NR515AE, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U. Plus a bunch of old consoles.
