As a person who plans to go all digital this gen and loves to listen to music from my console this is not good especially waiting 2 weeks before release to announce this. Also the streaming media is one of the my most used features so I would hate this news if I had a PS4 preorderd.

This isn't something that would effect me, but it does seem odd that there would be no playing of MP3s. Maybe they want to have their own streaming music service? It is Sony after all. They may not be keen on having MP3s out there at all.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

If you subscribe to their music service then you can listen to music while you play games on PS4.

Ah, I'm not surprised. In that case, will that change your decision on whether or not you'll get a ps4?

Being unable to have a external hard drive isn't really a big deal IMHO. Being unable to change the internal drive would be.

Not letting people listen to music thought... That's really a low blow. But it doesn't really surprise me, they always find new way to cut on stuff and make you pay to use those "non included" features/content (*cough* CoD map packs *cough*). That's why PC will always be superior to consoles.

There is no tangible reason to pick one over the other is the real answer here. They each have their own good and bad and the one you pick is nothing but a personal choice. Anyone who says otherwise is just being a complete fool.

Yes I have mental issues. And yes I take meds for it.

I doubt this will be finalized. That's like trying to sell a new car with no wheels. It's practically PC hardware this time around and it has an OS which means there's no reason why it can't have MP3 capability or an external storage. And besides. Flaws are meant to be hacked in a worst case scenario. But like I said. Not happening.

New build in progress.
Stay tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is an article here on Kotaku: The PS4 Takes a Step Backwards.

They're basically removing DLNA support and the ability to stream your own music, movies via other services, and all that other stuff that was touted in the PS3.

Sony isn't any different from Microsoft, other than they pull far fewer PR suicide blunders. They're going to see what they can get away with whenever they think they can, like charging for some online services that they used to offer for no charge with the PS3.

Curse you AquaScum!

I think this is probably a result of console makers realising that they are not, and probably never will, be able compete on the same grounds as tablets, ipads, and PDA phones.

 

Hence they stop trying and trying to reidentify their own niche (which is slowly being invaded by those same handheld devices).

Then nobody is upset by this right? Oh wait, they are. If you think Sony cares about gamers any more than Microsoft then you're delusional, they sale overpriced electronics and shaft customers with their proprietary formats such as the Vita memory cards.

This threads subject is pathetic, im mainly a PC gamer but anyone with common sense can see the flaws of the Xbox One are worse than the flaws of the PS4 and the PS4 has less flaws too.  I dont think I know anyone that owns a console that uses it to listen to music.  When it comes to consoles most people are concerned about gaming related issues which the Xbox One has more of such as the 720p thing and only be able to up-scale to 1080p instead of having native support.  This thread is just a pathetic attempt to say something negative about PS4 from a desperate xbox fan who cant take all the heat the Xbox One has been getting since its announcement.

When I saw battlefield 4s graphics comparisons, PS4 version had close PCs max graphics but the Xbox One was just terrible looking, no anti-aliasing or HBAO. http://www.ign.com/videos/2013/10/28/battlefield-4-xbox-oneps4-graphics-comparison

Playstation,  It does everything...

 

Except things we can charge extra for :)

 

 

Consoles are dying, and it's all the Big 3's fault.  Funny thing is that Nintendo will probably sell more than either of them again.  All gamers talk about is PS and Xbox, but Wii is better.  I've had all 3 of the current gen, and if you took out Assassin's Creed games and Gran Turismo 5 on PS3, I played my Wii (the original old one) more than both my PS3 and Xbox 360 combined lol.

Well to be fair console do cost more to develop compare to PC hardwares or handheld devices and their functionality (hence revenue stream) are less.

 

Handheld devices can just basically uses the same base OS and just do minor patches to it or upgrade the hardware, release it as new version and earn more money.

 

Consoles however they have to to release an entirely new thing everytime to want to go from 1 complete generation to the next (for example from 32 bit to 64), and people only buy them to play games, not check facebook or call friends, which means occasional gamers are less willing to waste money on it.

 

If console dies it is more because of the nature of what it is more than anything I think.

Another person that's simply trying too hard. The only thing pathetic is you and it shows by posting a Battlefiled 4 link in a thread that has has nonthing to do with Battlefield 4. Nobody cares about Battlefield 4 now that they have seen and saw the Xbox Version looks just as good or even better. http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2013/10/29/battlefield-4-on-xbox-one-vs-ps4-no-discernible-difference/

This is huge news to people that used these features and who were looking forward to using them on their new console in 2 weeks that they already PAID for. All of these features were on PS3. Go around and check other forums and see that some people are really let down by this news before posting. Just because something does not affect you does not mean its not important.Why would any Xbox fan be desperate when they know they are getting the best system and they are flying off shelves like they always have? I guess sites like IGN, Dual Shockers and Gamespot who also posted this same news are also pathetic and desperate Xbox fans? Common sense goes a long way.

Clearly, this is a money grab for Sony's "Music Unlimited" and "Video Unlimited" pay services.  The PS3 had support to play both mp3's and a fairly wide format of video files over a network share, or from a DNLA server.  It doesn't take much development time or effort to add those features.  However, NOT having them will push some people into subscribing to the pay services.

If those services don't do well enough, and if PS4 sales slump, they might well add those features in a future content patch, must like DVD and blu-ray playback are being added in their day 1 patch.

 That's exactly what it is and anybody should be able to see this. I don't like the idea of patching things like this in either.

 Did you not see that this is the General Gaming Section? If you looking for MMO news then you are on the wrong forum.

In case you've been living in a cave for the last 10 years, there are actually several MMO's that run on consoles, and since MOST people don't want to have 20 different devices connected to their TV's, having  a console NOT support commonly used features has an impact on how well any MMO's that run on that console will do.
