Today DualShockers reported about the mysterious "Music Player Demo" appeared on Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida's PSN profile, and looks like there's more to that app than meets the eye.
And some people complain about the lack on ideas on Sony's console. Hell yeah.
I was already looking forward to this much needed firmware update Sony. Way to make my freaking head explode now. Lol. I just wonder with DRM how the social music thing would work. Then again, people play shit on twitch all day long. Regardless, this looks like it's going to be fun to have on my PS4. Seriously, this update looks to be awesome!
Maybe it's like how in PS Home you could invite your friends to your virtual couch to watch movies in a group. Maybe it'll be like group video chat + music, or something.
Maybe they wont necessarily hear the music ur playing but u could chat while listening.
Just a matter of time.
Sony always steal ideas from other companies
Hate to break it to you but that is how competition in the industry evolves and thrives. Nintendo resurrected the analog in 96...Sony threw in a second stick 98...Xbox 1 from 2001 kept some Dreamcast's controller design and so forth. With your logic you could say the original Xbox controller is a ripoff of the PS controller which is a ripoff of the N64's and so forth.
This could be really fun.Bunch of friends in a lobby listening to music together, without even being in the same house, city,state or country.Could have a little chat box in the app to converse and stuff.Sorta like a private YouTube. Of course this is just how i envision it. Would be nice if it turns out anything like that though.
Oh dear God, yes. I want that.
Could just be a placeholder option given it's still a demo. Would be cool if it really does have social sharing though.
This is just the private Destiny beta...
So are you just repeating what other people speculated earlier in the comments of other articles that were proven wrong or did you actually look at the article and completely make this up? Because it shows in the pic in the article that Adam is playing the music demo in the section that shows what game the person is playing. No where on the screen does it show any logo or mention of the Destiny Beta.
It's not a music player, and it's not the Destiny Beta either. But objective's answer is closer to the truth than those other site's "proof".
If they made a plug.dj type music player that you could listen to music with friends with it'd be cool
Well if this is true, it should almost definitely also work while in-game, I hope.
Why would people get together on a console to listen to music?
If you're gonna be on your console anyway, why not do something with your friends?
Damn really dude?
Because having the option is better than not having the option. Even if a few only ever use it. At least they can. Surely choice is better in any situation.
That's pretty cool. We will have to wait and see.
good idea, though my PSN friends list is pathetic. Kinda pointless for me, but i know tons of people would love this option.
I get excited whenever I read anything about PS4 and it's social aspect, then I remember I hardly have friends to SHARE things with. That doesn't stop me from streaming live, though...hehehe.
Marc Cerny designed an amazing & affordable home console... Sure it couldve been more powerful than PCs but then it would cost way too damn much.. Graphics are just fine with it & all the apps & goodies to come will be great.. especially for PS Plus members
Very nice. Can't wait to test the update myself
A group session of 80's black guys playing pop music and a group session of 90's black guys listening to rap/hip-hop xD This sounds like an awesome feature =D
From the looks of things Sony is about to have the all around better media hub as well!
OMG! They milk that. It/'s not a music player for god's sake.
seems a bit interesting will be a bit more optimistic once we have confirmed details.
It's just an addition to the Sony Music Unlimited app. You make a playlist most likely, then you and your friends can join in and listen to it together. Remember when the Xbox 360 had the netflix feature where you can join a friend to watch a movie in the animated theater? It's probably similar to that, but with a playlist... For music.
