FamilyGuy  +   543d ago
Any of you could go to either of the official ps blogs PS4 faqs page an see the comments, there are a TON of people that were upset about this. Whether you personally thought little of it or not there is a large portion of comments speaking up against it or saying how it's upsetting news. On top of that all the major gaming sites had stories about it where you saw EVEN MORE complaints from upset fans and trolls mixed in making it worse.

Sony wasn't about to sit back an ignore a healthy percentage of their fanbase when they had a problem. It's not like adding mp3 playback is some massively difficult task anyway. DLNA support is another story.

That wasn't much of a wait.

I imagine some bean counters at Sony thought they'd try to push people towards their Music Unlimited service, but it's not worth risking when you're launching new hardware, especially considering how they've been in such good standing with the public with the pre-launch stuff.

Shake_Zula  +   542d ago
Yeah, very happy about the news although it's interesting that the next update isn't slated to as far back as early 2014. Not necessarily a bad thing, but definitely out of the norm as far as Playstation goes. Kinda makes you wonder how many updates the PS2 would have had if it were universally connected, huh?
ImG2theB  +   542d ago
At least they do their 180s quickly.
Ares84HU  +   542d ago
That's all nice and great how you guys think that Sony is correcting everything people are voicing their opinions about.

But did everyone forget that the PS4 won't play PS1, PS2 and PS3 games??? I think that's just total bullshit.

How about we get loud on this topic and ask Sony to create emulators for the PS4 that you could get either for free or paid that would act as a virtual console for the PS1, PS2 and PS3 so you can go all nostalgia if you want to. I still play PS1 games very often and I'd like to continue. For the time being, I have to keep my PS3 to do that.

This is great news, but if the system had the ability the whole time, why shut it out to begin with?
Mister_Dawg  +   542d ago
ZodTheRipper  +   542d ago
"Shutting something out" is not the same as not implementing it.
They simply focused on other things in development but as you can see by this response, they clearly didn't mean to "shut it out".
slapedurmomsace  +   542d ago
They focused on other things so much they did include the capability in the hardware and OS. They clearly didn't mean to shut it out so much by their response? Are you kidding me? If they didn't mean too, why announce they aren't including it? Why go outta your way to announce you're gonna do something you didnt mean too? They tried to push their music and video unlimited services. They are just a helluva lot quicker at change policy's that the public doesn't like than most corporations.

what are you talking about? of coarse the system had the ability, they just had to write the software. Its not like they blocked it for no reason. The update will add the capability to the ps4

When I first heard about it I wasn't really mad as I wasn't taking advantage of the features anyways. The the lack of it(especially the mp3 support)seemed odd though. But in any case good for those people that do use the features.

hulk_bash1987  +   543d ago | Well said
Difference is they werent fighting the backlash and insisting theyre way is better. sony noticed a backlash and quickly calmed the storm. Microsoft on the other hand defended their policy until the backlash started affecting sales projections.
Kryptix  +   543d ago

Very well said, for example, if Microsoft announced the return of used games being playable the next day after reveal, wouldn't that mean that they received the feedback of their fans to heart so they changed it quick?

The problem really persists that Microsoft doesn't quickly recognize good versus bad, like they have to pull up a chart to calculate losses before making decisions. It's always going to give better reactions if you listen then act quickly than putting money or laziness first. Microsoft is mostly like, "eh, we'll see what happens."
ashcroft  +   542d ago

You nailed it. MS heard everyone's cries and they told everyone there's a device called an xbox 360. When Amazon told them they were being outsold 16-1, that's what bothered them.

Sony has had bad press since the psn hack and are constantly trying to make it up to us. They don't want you to hate them as it kills the point of trying to make it up. So they listened, The difference between 2006 and 2013 is that we have alot of power with social media, mainly twitter.

We can reach the people that matter to help them know what we want. Unlike calling a company and dealing with customer service where it's all about procedure.
HmongAmerican  +   542d ago

UnholyLight  +   542d ago

I think that's why Don Mattrick was quickly thrown into the air and punted in the ass as hard as the rest of Microsoft could.

Seriously, whoever approved him to say "There's an Xbox 360 for that" should be smacked over the head.

Back-to-Back  +   542d ago
Clearly the xbox fans were happy about the MS 180s, why do you think you see more xbox fans now, then what we saw at e3? 180s are fine as long as they benefit the customer.
Cuzzo63  +   543d ago
Whats even more puzzling is that the Xbots are not even bashing this...
MasterCornholio  +   543d ago
That's because of how fast Sony responded to their fans. Microsoft on the other hand took forever to implement the 180s because they were waiting for preorder numbers from retailers.

Nintendo fans take notes!!!
This is exactly why i hate when people say Sony phonies or Sony drones! we are far from that for the most part! if we see b.s we call it out, and because Sony is more consumer focused then its rivals they usually give us what we ask for.

This is the nintendo fan base's biggest flaw, just look how many monumental cock ups nintendo has made over the last few generations, never mind years.
And they will never change, why? because of the nintendrones who throw a hissy fit whenever someone criticizes nintendo for their cock ups! its annoying as hell i really love nintendo and Sony and have been gaming over 27 years (am 30 so do the math!) and to see nintendo in their current state is sad,and what makes it worse is to see the fan base and nintendo management dig their heads into the sand and claim nothing is wrong!

Seriously anyone claiming their not is PLAIN DELUSIONAL!
Nintendo has serious problems right now and i wish some times they were more like Sony. Sony have always put the core gamers first and i am grateful for it.

Nintendo on the other hand is clearly more casual gamer focused now,hence all the b.s we have seen!
When will they realise that unless we speak up they will never change, its why i love the Playstation nation even though i usually buy every platform and game on pc too, the community is awesome on PSN! BEYOND EVERYONE! AND GAME ON FOREVER!
Don't take no shit from no corporation, without us the consumers they are NOTHING! and please for the love of god nintendo fans, rally together and stop putting up with mediocrity!

When x1 and Microsoft tried the drm crap, fans spoke up, and Playstation didn't follow suit, which forced Microsoft to change their policies, when Sony made mistakes with ps3,and now this mp3 rubbish Sony fans spoke up, now ps4 seems to be the king of gaming all over again like ps2, now nintendo fans need to speak up and make nintendo change for the better, we as gamers deserve better then what nintendo has been giving us! They are lazy now,and need to show us the core some more love, every generation the core nintendo fan base has been shrinking more and more,the wii sold like mad but it wasn't the core gamers it was casual grannies and women! most played it a few times and then left it in the closet.

And so if you see the nintendo console total sales for the last 3 or so generations you can clearly see the core fan base leaving nintendo consoles! The total system sales for each of their consoles has been diminishing this is a problem which has been going on for a while,and likewise the lack of third party support is another problem which nintendo has failed to rectify over almost 4 generations! this is unacceptable for me as a nintendo fan! WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

I would disagree simply because as a consumer Nintendo offers me everything I want in a game console and IMO the best 1st party titles on the market. So I wouldn't complain to Nintendo because the Wii U meets all my needs in a console. With Sony or M$ consoles I'm stuck paying extra money for unnecessary hardware power and features I won't look twice at.
General Pinky  +   542d ago
Has anyone read the article by any chance. There was no mention of a update just a decision about the features that are missing with the team. Don't know how that was translated into the 2nd update for the PS4.
All I have to say is we need to change their minds about this before the console comes out because I don't want another situations like the party chat on the PS3.

Anon1974  +   542d ago
I wasn't terribly concerned by this. The PS3 launched with considerably less features then it enjoys now and additional functionality was added over time. Sure it's be nice if it did everything right out of the box, but you never know what's going to be a feature that's in demand. Still, I think MP3's and Media Streaming would have been two no-brainers. I get they want everyone to use their music and video streaming services, but let's be realistic here.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   542d ago

They can go to an Internet cafe and download it from the playstation website and transfer it over. If they can't do that they have bigger issues to worry about
Kryptix  +   543d ago
Well there's always the PS3. (Don Mattrick joke)

A) They can download the patch into a USB stick using their friend's internet or at the cafe. Even a wifi capable phone can download the patch when they enter an area with free wifi without bringing their laptop.

B) Boot up the patch from a new game they bought. Not sure if Sony still puts console patches in discs but that's an option if they still do.

This is how both Sony and Microsoft should model their business after.

Simply put, if your fanbase has questions/concerns. Don't cover it up with PR garbo, Don't lie and say "we don't know" just admit it. Give them what they want. Its a respect thing.

Thank you Sony for proving to me that you care, even if its something as simple as listening to music on your PS4.

this is Sony always listening to what their fans really wants...not what their bank account wants

I think they are one in the same to be honest, more happy customers , more customers, more customers, more money right. Thats not a bad thing but its perfect sense.

I call B*llSh*t hahaha. You can't really believe that?

-No .mp3 playback = New Sony Music Unlimited subscribers = MONEY

-No DVD/BluRay playback = New Sony Video Unlimited subscribers = Money

Don't believe the hype, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo. They all want our money and our support.

Stop hating and go spend a extra $100 for inferior hardware.

Why the disagrees?? They are companies they need money to survive. I'm not going to never get these personal relationship with these companies.

'-No DVD/BluRay playback'

Nice try but you're completely wrong there. DVD/Bluray playback is part of the day one patch.
HugoDrax  +   542d ago

No need to hate, I will own both consoles at launch. If you want to be proven wrong come the 15th and 22nd, I'll be glad to make you look stupid. All I have to do is post pictures, or anyone can check my PSN ID/Gamertag.


I know it's a part of the day one patch, my question is why do I need a patch for DVD/Blu Ray playback? I believe it's because of Sony Video Unlimited. It's almost as if that was disabled so customers alternative would be to join the unlimited service for watching movies.

How quick was that? Wow.
Sony is not playing around, they are really buttering our bread on the right side. I hope they keep this up throughout the next generation.

MAULxx  +   543d ago
Not yet. We still need our custom themes.
Really though, I am happy with this news.
Akuma2K  +   542d ago
I wouldn't be surprised if we see custom themes soon, i'm sure they're right around the corner.
GirlOnFire  +   543d ago
Problem solved! Was not even long either. Sony is really devoting to their fanbase. I'm glad i jumped on this train. Thank you guys! For the players since 1995! ^~^
Akuma2K  +   543d ago
Thank you Sony, now i can continue listening to the same music playlist i used in NFS:Hot Pursuit on PS3 for NFS:Rivals.

Sony truly listens to its fanbase, good job and keep it up.
