    You know it's bad when people start acting like radio stations and only listening to that one song that is popular and not giving a $#@! about the rest of the songs even though they are probably better.
    That is very very true, I have run into so many great songs because of that, and if I hadn't got the whole CD I would have never know about them! It kills me that radio stations so severely dictate what songs they want you to hear...

    Rip you CD's to your PC and media share/copy to your PS4. Or use a data cable and connect your mp3 player/usb drive to copy music to your PS4 HDD. Problem solved.

    As much as I could pretend to be ok with some of these points of view the bitter truth is, this makes no sense. Blu-ray drives consist of both the blue-violet and red lasers to read all the formats out here now, and last i herd PS4 allegedly still plays DVD. Sony being ones/the ones who push CD till it was a staple this make NO sense. So the software support is being dropped, for what, I'm friggin baffeled

    Edit: No I can't believe it, and until we get word from a better source or the fat lady themselves, fooweee I say!!

    Yeah I don't know about this either. I'm not fully sold on it myself. It just seems like a minuscule thing to keep, why get rid of it?

    I still get CDs. Granted, they're almost all older titles, but I've learned that having hardcopies of things can be very helpful when dealing with finicky electronic devices.

    As far as not including CD playback, I can't imagine why Sony would go to the trouble of excluding something, unless they really are going proprietary.

    My guess is that it wasn't included simply because they didn't want to build a software side of the equation. Rather put the resources else where, this is just wild speculation.

    If everyone here was offered a PS4 with CD compatibility for one price, and a cheaper alternative PS4 with no CD compatibility I'm pretty sure most, if not all, would go the cheaper option. Nobody buys a PS4 to play CD's, nor will they not purchase a PS4 because it doesn't.

    I don't see this is a big deal.

    For me it's a don't care. A handless man could count on his fingers the number of times I put a CD in my PS3. It's 20W for my CD/SACD player vs 200W for my PS3. All my music is already ripped so I simply copied it over, and I don't believe I used it to listen to MP3s more than once or twice to be honest. But that's me, to each his own.

    Can it be? Surely not! Another SACD collection owner?! I thought i was almost the last lol

    Like you I have a blu-ray player from Sony which plays SACD and CD's and does half the stuff my consoles do now actually, but at lower power consumption. So it's really no loss to me, and many like us.

    Yes, I'm another one of the lost soles (a.k.a. SACD collector.)

    For the people that say we should use MP3's, I bet they would be the first to moan if Sony stopped selling games in store and it was digital only.

    SACD is really only beneficial with multi instrumental bands.

    Same here. MP3s are ass. My entire collection is FLAC or Vinyl FLAC.

    I rip them... but I certainly don't play them by themselves. Everything is digital for me now, but it's nice to have a physical copy if something gets borked with my digital files.

    That's a whole different ball game. MP3s are not dependent upon bandwidth capabilities. Don't even know how you could relate the two outside of the fact that they are both forms of media. Not to mention CDs have gone by the wayside long ago. Consoles have remained mostly disc based all the way until now. It's not like we're talking PC gaming.

    I download all my music now but in the form of FLAC. When you listen to music on a real system the difference is night and day. MP3s can suck it.

    You mean to tell me my Backstreet Boys CD that I bought back in 1999 isn't going to work on my PS4?

    This is really hindering my decision on whether to buy one or not.

    I am wondering if this move away from CD's has anything to do with Sony opening up a music store in PSW (Playstation world)

    -__- Unlike the beginning of this gen, (where split-screen co-op was ditched just to push people onto PSN) That makes no sense.Sony has always had some for of music store so no. This (if true and apparently now PSU has an article on it) There just has to be another reason. It's down to software support and it really doesn't make sense.

    Blah, I'm finished babbling, doubt any of that was coherant, I'm just in disbelief that there's the question that Sony would abandon something that they themselves had in on, and Yes I still collect CDs and have even ripped a few strait to the PS3. I would just stream over a media server but the $#@!ty network here suddenly one day stopped allowing my server from being seen by well anything, plus I still have my thing with gapless playback which isn't supported through streaming anyways
