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.

Hatsune-Miku1392d ago

glorious. thank you sony. im getting a ps4 first day.

LOL_WUT1392d ago

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.

Angels37851392d ago

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!"

scott1821392d ago (Edited 1392d ago )

Nice, that was a very fast response.

Edit: All those people that fake cancelled their PS4 pre order will be so sad.

xHeavYx1392d ago

When the biggest complaint you get is that your console doesn't play MP3, you know you are doing things right.

Rimeskeem1392d ago

Well they did say

Greatness Awaits

MTEC81392d ago

That was fast, glad that's sorted out. Ask and you shall receive!

memots1392d ago

all that stuff was feasible on ps3 and on xbmc/pc

Is the Xbox one able to do it?

iamnsuperman1392d ago

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

PeaSFor1392d ago

all the fake "canceled pre-order" drama queens will be confused.

Prime1571392d ago

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."

FamilyGuy1392d ago (Edited 1392d 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.

thereapersson1391d ago

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.

pop_tarts1391d ago

Unless you wait for an Xbox One...I kid I kid.

pyramidshead1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

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.

RedDevils1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

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

DragonKnight1391d ago

This is just more proof that Sony's focus was on games and games only first, everything else second.

Kayant1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

@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 --->

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

AKS1391d ago

@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.

ipach1391d ago

easiest use of patience ever. that change took like all of a day. my goodness.

mewhy321391d ago

This is another example of sony doin what the players want.

Revolver_X_1391d ago

@andibandit

A 180 is when you announce something then turn around and change it. MP3, DLNA was never considered at all.

Withdreday1391d ago

They should patch in PS3 support too!

Shake_Zula1391d 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?

ImG2theB1391d ago

At least they do their 180s quickly.

Ares84HU1391d ago (Edited 1391d 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.

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
