PS4 will not support CDs

 As technology advances, the storage mediums of today die and new ones are born. The upcoming PlayStation 4 will cease support of a format that Sony's home consoles always have: compact discs.

Reiji Asakura, the Japanese journalist who wrote the bestselling book "Revolutionaries at Sony: The Making of the Sony Playstation and the Visionaries Who Conquered the World of Video Games" tweeted that Sony told him the PS4 will not play CDs or Super Audio CDs. The PlayStation 3 does play both of these formats.

Sony co-developed the CD with Philips back in the 1970s. While many people listen to digital audio files for music, CDs are still the preferred format for many music enthusiasts.

Will the loss of CD support affect you? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to PSU for more PS4 news.
