Who cares. I don't listen to music on a console. Got my laptop for that.

@lol at they guy saying that windows 8 was not good at gaming. I wonder what I have been doing in the pas year then? Cause I have never had any problems with playing games on Windows 8. Windows 8 is exactly the same OS as Windows 7 less one stupid start menu which is not needed at all anyway. Win8 uses runs faster than wkn7.

As another poster noted handhelds, tablets and other devices are supporting DLNA. 

Sony has made a considerable amount of changes towards the PS4 and and its strategies clearly from the lessons they learned from the PS3.  Frankly, this is a gaming console first and foremost.  Not a media server and mostly definitely not a Linux device.  Sony is targeting gamers for its gaming console.  Not persnickety techie types that hopefully are resourceful enough anyway to find other ways to have and use DLNA.

Dude!  PC's aren't better than consoles.  Why, you ask?  Because they are the same yet different.  A console is a gaming specific PC.  And a PC is a PC.

Every console will cost you the same price and be the same.  ( Not counting optional goodies extra drive space etc.) 

A PC can be a cheap ass piece of crap, all the way up to a liquid cooled monster!   They are designed to do many other things but will generally cost you twice as much to play the same games.

So don't say one is better than the other when they can't really be compared.

Is a car better than a motorcycle?  Sure it has 4 wheels and a roof.  Is it as cheap or fast as a motorcycle?  No because the motorcycle is designed to be fast and less expensive.   Two different things.

So please, lets all get over this PC is better than console crap.  Its irrelevant here.

Now if you want to say PS4 is better than XBone, then by all means, be my guest!

Your link and Netflix "revelation" isn't new news. I have no concern either way. I was merely pointing out that they are removing PS3 functionality in an effort to promote their paid systems. I was also pointing out that if Microsoft had removed functionality to promote their paid systems the villagers would be sharpening their pitchforks and lighting the torches. Yet, when Sony does this it's dismissed. Interesting.

If Sony is giving the finger to Linux users and techies, what sort of gamers are they targeting?

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

I actually use my 360 to stream mp3's and movies all the time from my pc.  I thought it was a pretty good solution, since it's hooked up to my receiver and speakers.  After all the mess with the Xbox One, I was going to get a PS4 and let that be the one device I have to mess with at any given moment.  Now I'm not sure what I'm going to do, although the Roku could probably handle all those duties. 

Just when I think I'm finally paring down the junk I've got attached to my tv...

Yea I do the same with my 360.  Its pretty convenient to do it that way for sure.

Truth be told, I really don't have a good reason to buy either console at this point.  I got a ton of stuff left to play on the 360, and that isn't even including GTA 5!  

Always best to wait awhile on these things anyway.  Just be to be sure there are no red rings of death and maybe save a few bucks as well.  No MP3, would not be a deal breaker for me tho.  I didn't even know what the 360 could do when I bought it,  thought it just played games, LOL!!  That's why you buy 'em, the rest is gravy.

I mean really at this point, I have seen enough things wrong with both next gen consoles. I was all gun ho about getting a console too. I thought for sure they are going to make them every bit as good as pc's are, but they just aren't and they won't be either. I have canceled my preorders and am in the process of a pc "master race" build. Consoles had a chance and I was really rooting for them, but they messed it up, oh well farewell. I will keep my ps3 and play cod with my irl friends on the weekends and get my real gaming fix on my pc the rest of the time.

It does for me . . going to cancel my preorder tomorrow and look more at a SteamBox set up (even if I make my own).  No DLNA support sucks. . the one thing I hate about the ROKU.  I have to run a "server" just to access video and music files on my network storage.

Yea I actually built ( or at least paid someone to) my first gaming rig over the summer.   I was happy enough with my console and the big screen gaming there, but I felt I wanted to enhance my PC gaming, as up to now I have always been gaming on more or less off the shelf PC's and not the best ones at that.

I think the performance jump was a large one between the last group of consoles.  I don't see as much difference to me this time.  At least not from a gameplay perspective.

So even tho I spent twice as much on a new PC, I am pretty content with my gaming capabilities for a little while at least.  Hope that makes the console haters out there a little happier.

I am buying a console to play games, so mp3 music or external hard drivers doesn't matter to me. I am looking forward to playing Japanese imports on my PS4, which is not a strong point for Xbox.

Sony has been tanking in the markets for a long time now.. so i'm not surprised Sony will milk the PS4 as much as they can.

 

Its their only hope to survive.

Where as I do agree this is a 'bad move' for gamers, it has little bearing on me.  I own a stereo bar that I send music from multiple devices in my home for music/video.  I do agree with the numerous sites that this is a step backwards for making the PS4 a multimedia station, but I believe this is further solidifying their move into offering proprietary services.  They seem to be trying Apple's/their own old tricks again.  Hopefully this goes the route of Betamax with a future patch.

Cheers!

That is the one bad thing about my roku but then I'm reminded that it cost me 70$. I really wish Sega was still a console player...

The Muitimedia BS on both consoles does not affect me I already have multiple devices fir streaming content to my T,V and use services like netflix etc.

Only thing that matters to me is what exclusives are on each platform and neither is impressive at launch so I will upgrade my PC this year and decide on which console to purchase sometime next year when they both have larger libraries to make my judgement on.

The ps3 came out without streaming, for like the first 6 months. Sony is trying to beat xbox 1 to market. Both systems will release with major patches. And within a year you will see them crumble and allow cd audio again

Streaming is becoming something that people want, even if they don't need it, and the technical hurdles are pretty trivial. I'm betting the hold up is Sony pushing its own streaming service, where movies, music, etc. is streamed from them, or other commercial entities, not your own media server. They want some control and they want some revenue.

They do seem to be very responsive to market pressure though. If the people who buy their stuff get fed up with what they get, and going back on what they said is the way to get more sales or more support in the market, I bet you're right in that they crumble.

Need. Even if they don't need it.

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