Please advise could i use Thunderbolt slot on Asus ROG 751JY in order to connect it with PS4 and use laptop screen for watching? I want to do this because PC platform has no released so many games which are only for Play Station platform. For example: Uncharted, Order 1886, Bloodborn, Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls, The Last of Us and so on. Or laptop Thunderbolt works the same as HDMI only in one (output) direction? I was going to connect PS4 using HDMI (output) - Thunderbolt (input) cable. https://translate.google.ru/translate?sl=ru&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=ru&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fugreen.com.ua%2Fdisplayport%2F205-kabel-mini-dpthunderbolt-hdmi.html%3Fsearch_query%3Dthunderbolt%26results%3 D3&edit-text= Is it possible at all? Please advise.

p.s. As i can see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VX8Y2NWs7vg&feature=youtu.be thunderbolt allows to connect laptop with external video card using adapter in order to use it instead of internal one. But the question is what will be if instead of external video card to use PS4 with HDMI otput and instead of Mac Book AIR (like on this Youtube video) to use Asus Rog. Will it work?

Not possible with current G751/G752 hardware. Some alienware models have an HDMI-in port, but it is a custom implementation
