Wow. The PS4 only has optical out? I was thinking of picking one up solely for GTAV but that's not good news.

I may be wrong, but I believe the optical will require conversion from digital to analog before you can run it into RCA's. If that's the case you're best off looking for a new home theater amp. I think I paid $150 for mine and it has digital and HDMI inputs.

If the PS4 has headphone output, you can use that first link you posted. You will not be getting surround sound though, probably just stereo.
