Microsoft confirms music playback from USB sticks not supported at launch, but could come later.
Dafunk? U serious brah? First thing I do when I buy a console is to play all my pirated music I stored on my USB stick to my new shiny toy.
That's it, I'm writing an angry letter. Wheres my quill?
Isn't this supposed to be the media center of the universe! Damn u ms /s
Be sure to have your ink ready! The quill is useless without proper ink on standby!
The All In ONE???
@badboy No no no you said it wrong. It is Dat all in ONE. Always use the 'dat'-word.
thats what people use USB sticks for?...oh.
It's faster to stream it from a USB stick than to copy all your songs into the console plus it also saves hard drive space if you have a couple GBs of music. This gen, hard drive space will be much more needed for games than before.
So your gonna copy your music from your pc to a USB to play it on your console, Just stream it baby!
why emphasise that your music is pirated?
Is it pirated if it's borrowed from the library? Just asking. Nero's the best! Gateway MT6706 2008
My "go to" move for games with crap OST's is listen to the music I've saved to my 360. So Neither next gen lets me listen to my own music right out of the box ? This + a few other reasons is why I'm holding off a few months probably.
Be careful NSA is watching.
It can't play music from a USB stick? Burn it to the ground!! /s
Nope but for a $500 console that heavily relies on advertising it's features it should be included. ;)
in all fairness I am sure you can copy the music from the USB to the console and you should be good to go. The PS4 will require an update just to play MP3 files, so I guess they each took a hit there.
at least it can play mp3s.... That more than I can say about the ps3.5 er the ps4 ......:-)
Is that true, Neonridr? Can you actually copy them and play them off of the hard drive? I didn't see anything in the article.
I can understand why someone like you, Trekster_Gamer would lose interest in the article three words in, but to save you the hassle: "The Xbox One is DLNA compatible and will play CDs on launch day. However, like the PlayStation 4, users will not be able to store or play MP3s on the system at launch." What was that you were saying about the PS4?
Dang, that's first thing I wanted to do after booting up my Shiny New XB1, play music through a USB stick!!! I am so canceling my order RIGHT NOW!!
No no no, The first thing you should be doing when you boot up your shiny new Xbone is watching tv! watch sports on tv then listen to tv
And so it begins.....lol.
no the twitch thingy exploded on twitter .. this is nothing compare to that http://i.ytimg.com/vi/AjkoX...
lol the PS4 got eviscerated for not having such small features like this. This should be no different if fair is fair :P
Yep here we go again. Oh dear.
However it can stream music from your PC and devices through DLNA, which PS4 does not support so far. http://www.ign.com/articles... Apparently, according the trolls here facts are just opinions now.
But will in the next patch for the ps4 then what will u fall on.. Twitch... oh wait xbone dont have twitch till 2014
Lets face it, both these consoles promised a ton and now as they launch are having things "patched in"
Not everything comes at launch. The playstation is lacking features, but Sony will likely patch new stuff in 2014. Man, you Sony fans never stop criticizing. I was thinking of getting a PS4 up till August, glad i didn't now and stuck with X box. X BOX fans are just more mature and act like adults.
Did you read the title at launch, which means support is coming for it just like twitch broadcasting. Do see everything from one side all the time?
You had to bring that up?! This was not comparing what has and what hasn't. Now Shh troll.
there are a few Xbox fanboys on this site who try to act nonpartisan but every now and again they show their true colours... it's funny when it happens :D
SHOTS FIRED! Pre-Order CANCELED! PS4 here I come!
All in One multimedia box LoL.
Can we stop this back and forth crap? The Xbox One is missing some stuff. The PlayStation 4 is missing some stuff. Nobody's happy about it, but seriously...knock it off.
I'm with you on that.
What i hate (this goes for both firms) that missing features get announced a few days before launch. Honestly how many Xbox One fans were planning on using twitch the first day that they get the console?
Bad news keep getting coming for the x1, so close to launch. Meanwhile, over at xbot cave that is IGN, people complaining that the PS4 is not a real multimedia device.
LOL, who uses a USB stick anymore.
Sorry, seriously with cloud storage and my phone I haven't had a need to use a USB stick in some time. Does xbone have bluetooth connectivity that might be a bigger deal than usb to me.
seriously cloud data services pretty much eliminated the need for usb for data storage
Clouds can't be accessed without internet.
confused why the sdf are even here.. Didn't the ps4 come out?
How dare you display your ignorance on N4G!!!!!!! Dont you know that the PS4 is only out in North America. We Europeons (and south americans) have to wait until the 29th to get one. @Snookies12 " You're not a peon" Poke poke poke that all you do. Stop touching me.
Europeons? You're not a peon! You should hold yourself to a higher regard, good sir! D: Lol, yeah though this isn't a major deal. Though it is an unfortunate thing to not have at launch. Both the X1 and PS4 will definitely need some feature patching in the near future.
Taking a break and gettin some snacks for another gaming session yo.
They must have forgotten the rule that they can only play PS4 all day from now on. No news, no socializing... just PS4. I look forward to the xbox's release so you vanish because you live by that rule.
Good luck with that, lol.
This everybody is why there is no such thing as a 'PERFECT' launch. Every system will have its pro/cons so stop nitpicking, enjoy the new console smell & the games. Like it or not things will be patched in eventually.
Next headline Microsoft cant play launch games at launch
Without a patch they can not.
well ps4 cant either.. least mine dont play music from a thumb drive grrrrrr...
so it cant play from the usb stick. well can you copy and paste the music?
People torn the ps4 apart for this now its xbox time Burn it at the stake!
Hypocrites will be exposed.
Xbox One.. here are two options, One=1 thing, it can do one thing in total or One like "All in One". Now I'm sure this box can do only one thing..just play some games. USB support Q2 2014 RIP CD Q3 2014 Play Online Q1 2015 Install games Q3 2015 Send message End of 2015 Call via Skype Q1 2016 TV kinect controls Q4 2014 use BR player -sometime in the future
Wow, how terrible of them :O
would you not just utilise the free Skydrive? why would you go through the effort of putting it on a USB to then go and plug it in your xbox wasting a USB port?
With the release of x1 right upon us more and more coming out about missing features.... No twitch at launch and now no USB music. Sony has had it's hiccups as well. But when ur advertising for the all in one media box well you better be the all in one media box. Feel bad for you guys in the x1 camp. But back to broadcasting gameplay on twitch on ps4 :)
Gee how will I ever live without knowing people are watching me play my game online.
I don't see how this can come as a surprise. They already told us a while ago that external hard-disks wouldn't be usable at launch, but shortly thereafter.
It is a surprise because external hard hard-disk is not a flash drive :]
It seriously comes down to the same thing. External space, through a USB port, is not being supported at launch.
I think the Xbox one in general has plenty alternative ways to play music....moving on
Streamign music is so much easier.
It doesn't play music from a usb stick????? Dayyy one!! Can't stream your games either???? And for 500 $? That's an amazing deal!!
This just shows that both consoles will be at their worst at launch. Over time, they will both become the machines they were claimed to be and fully optimize all of their capabilities.
