    PS4 Features after Patch

    So I guess things like the Wire4less Headset support and HDMI capture (that review row that was blown out) are addressed after patch.

    As confirmed by PSU

    Let's hope things like mp3/avi etc to follow?

    Based on the big PS4 FAQ the released it doesn't sound like they have any intentions of supporting MP3's (and I'd assume other media formats that you'd upload yourself) as they want your to subscribe to their Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services. At least that's my take on it.

    I personally don't use my PS3 for these features and I wouldn't use the PS4 this way, but I know many who want these features. If they get enough grief on it, they may change their tune.

    I don't use mp3's so this doesn't effect me in any way, but I do think it's absolutely ridiculous to not support mp3's?
    I mean c'mon! Really? Mp3's? How hard is it to implement different types of audio and video formats? Is that really a difficult thing for Sony to do? I find this to be pretty dumb and will fully support any petition to make Sony change this.

    I think it's incredibly stupid for them not to support this... considering the PS4 is supposed to be a media hub. I have other means of streaming music to my theater, so this won't be a setback... but it's nice to have everything in one place.

    All they have to do is put MP3 support from a USB device on the PS4 and you can listen to your music on the PS4. All it takes is a patch, they are probably just testing the waters for this. Not a big deal unless a few months from now they still won't patch it in. Honestly, I think they will.

    I agree - I was being wishful.

    In sayin gthat, I also agree with PBM - should've included it. But would we have accepted a more expensive console? Say the same as an Xbone? (licensing etc)


    I'm not cancelling pre-orders, but custom soundtracks should at least be supported, so that means mp3/aac etc should hopefully be patched in. I'm not bothered by movies etc, while nice, I use too many other means to care.

    The biggest thing that pisses me off was I was expecting them to take a page out of the 360 book and have custom soundtracks for all games. There are tons of instances where I would use. Sports, racing, and games that have wave type challenges like GoW. I used it quite a bit on 360 and was hoping it was going to be on PS4.

    Instead they pull the basic feature that the PS3 had. I just think it is a kick in the face, regardless if you use it or not. Stripping features from a previous system is just messed up. I hope they get their heads out of their asses and realize they are pissing people off with this.

    They were doing so well and I was so glad they had turned around their attitude from last Gen but this is simple a way to push unlimited. It would be about the equivalent of apple or android devices only allowing playback of App store or Marketplace purchased music. I know that feature is much more used on mobile devices. Considering the PS3 was heralded as a do everything machine they are taking a step back now. I hope this $#@! gets sorted out.

    Lol, ps4 won't even play audio cds according to that FAQ. Looks like Sony is trying to push their music unlimited service on everyone.

    I seriously don't care either way. PS1/PS2/PS3 whether I had the ability to listen to music off of them or not, I have no clue.....never wanted to.

    It's been know for a while it wouldn't play cds. I was fine with that because I rip my cds to my laptop and transfer the mp3s anyway. But it is stupid they pulled that feature.

    That last tweet, is that their backhanded version of MS' "Get a 360" quote? Or am I just jaded by the way MS has handled things?

    Optimistic view: or does that mean, "we see that you like the PS3s features, we're now going to see how/if we can implement this to PS4 via patch" ?

    For their sake, I hope it's the latter..

    I have no idea what that means... hopefully it means they won't be idiots and leave out obvious features. The console could play music CDs/etc. since PlayStation One. Why remove it now?

    Yep. Removing the cd playback makes much more sense now that mp3 playback is removed too. You can't have music unless you pay us. Does Pandora work on the PS3 browser?

    I'm pretty sure there's a Pandora app for PS3.

    Wouldn't it just be possible for a third party software company to create an app that plays CD's and mp3 (including codecs and drivers)? If Sony would let them do that of course. Anyhow, I hope Sony comes to their senses add the feature in a future FW update.

    Thinking back I remember it worked on the browser. But I don't think there is an app. But I could be wrong.

    I was even more surprised that PC media streaming isn't possible on the PS4 either... But it looks like the FAQ has been edited recently because i don't remember it saying this extra * stuff:

    Will PS4 support media servers or DLNA support in order to stream videos or movies from a home PC?

    The PS4 system does not support client functionality* for media servers.


    *We appreciate your feedback and are exploring possibilities.

    Don't go around believing that Great Wizards solve all your problems, because there aren't any and they don't and I should know because I'm not one...

    Looks like they're seriously looking into it. We'll see if it makes it, but I'm encouraged at them trying.

    They looked into cross game chat back in 07. I hope im wrong in thinking we wont get it.

    I personally dont care for anything other than mp4 support but I know lots of others do.

    If I were a betting man I would wager heavily in favor of PS4 getting MP3 support. Sony has been about as consumer friendly as it can get with its console policies and seems focused on satisfying its audience so I doubt that MU will be the sole avenue of listening to music on the console.

    XGC was a HW requirement issue in the end (to do with ram).

    This. if it doesn't go ahead, will be a SW or design issue - which seems easier to implement considering it has been implemented before. We'll see, obviously, but probability on this seems more likely imo.
