With yesterday's PS4 FAQ news being received with mixed feelings. The heads over at Sony seem to have taken back a desire to fight for the Living room with upcoming updates to support high demand features such MP3's, DLNA
Wow that was fast, good news, seems that the replace of my PS3 as my media center will be sooner than expected!
Patience is a great virtue. Good things come to those who wait.
glorious. thank you sony. im getting a ps4 first day.
See this is what I like to see. When a fanbase of any company is OUTSPOKEN changes will be made. It's never late to speak up ;) And as I always say better late than never.
I'm not surprised by this at all....of sony has done something consumers don't like as of late...they immediately correct it. Almost like Yoshi goes to the PS4 team and goes "What the hell were you thinking??? Change that!"
Nice, that was a very fast response. Edit: All those people that fake cancelled their PS4 pre order will be so sad.
That was fast.
When the biggest complaint you get is that your console doesn't play MP3, you know you are doing things right.
Well they did say Greatness Awaits
That was fast, glad that's sorted out. Ask and you shall receive!
all that stuff was feasible on ps3 and on xbmc/pc Is the Xbox one able to do it?
I don't want to be that guy but how do we know this is real. Who is this Sony rep? I will remain cautiously optomistic
all the fake "canceled pre-order" drama queens will be confused.
Wait, I didn't even think it was that bad of an uprising, they just went, "Oh shit, a few people said this was bad, let's make it work."
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.
Well thank GOD this is happening. I was not about to use their Music Unlimited service just to be able to play my music on my system. Too many awesome memories on my PS3 of using custom soundtracks in Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD.
Unless you wait for an Xbox One...I kid I kid.
Not like it was ever a big issue...just an odd choice issue. You'll be playing games mostly on your PS4 for the most part. Glad to see Sony listen and step up to deliver.
That is good news, especially DLNA and Mp3 is one of those I used the most on my ps3. Thank God Sony listen to their fans/customers
This is just more proof that Sony's focus was on games and games only first, everything else second.
@all This is also backed by a mod on gaf.... Take that what you will. Either that's their source or its indeed a sony rep it's seems likely they would push forward with adding media stuff sooner rather than later seeing how they have been responding to feedback lately ---> http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Man, these guys are good.
How Sony & Microsoft operate: Fans: Plz add mp3 n stuf kthx? Sony: K lol, we'll add it in the next update. M$: Gtfo buy a 360 #dealwithit #YOLO #SWAG
@zeal0us 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.
Isnt this a 180??
easiest use of patience ever. that change took like all of a day. my goodness.
This is another example of sony doin what the players want.
@andibandit A 180 is when you announce something then turn around and change it. MP3, DLNA was never considered at all.
They should patch in PS3 support too!
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?
At least they do their 180s quickly.
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.

graphics.....games...awsomenes s...all would be meaningless if not for things like this that sony is doing. CLEARLY sony is putting what gamers want first..no run around. when shu speaks he says truth and things like this are proof. sony has my trust and my money...$400 out my pocket. it hurts my wallet but my mind is at ease because i know this is money well spent
