Some interesting details regarding upcoming Playstation 4 has been leaked. It will add features already available on PS3 and some new stuff, official announcement is expected before/around GamesCom 2014
Cool, after this can we get a name change. Some of us are dying for one.
When people decided on their names they should have choose a name they can be comfortable with for ever. Its like tattoos. However if Sony decides to allow changes it would be good thing
Sure it should be something to think about, but people change and grow. One year you were playing with your college mates, five years later you added your coworkers. PSA: Let me tell you one thing about GamePus and Tidux: "Tidux revealed that the update will finally allow players to change their name or nickname in PlayStation Network. "To those of you who do not like your PSN name, things are looking brighter #PS4," he wrote, according to [GamePus]." The referred article is from April. They don't even have the brain to make up new lies.
Please be true, as much as I hate these "insiders", I really hope the local media playback is announced ASAP.
So making a name on an online service should be a life long commitment? You've got to be kidding me with this comment.
yeah, but it shouldn't be like a tatoo. Its a digital profile name
@ theonerigganob..... What im saying is at the time people created a name on psn as of today, any name u choose will be the name you have forever under that account unless Sony changes their policy. So when you decided on a name make it a name you can live with forever or for the duration of that account.
Your tattoo analogy isn't very good because you CAN get a tattoo amended if you dislike it.
Bad analogy tattoos can get removed & covered up
Guys you get my point though. Smh.
I'm shocked that you got negatives for a simple comment that is true, tits the lot of them
Dude, i was 13 and my dad chose it. Wranglersofttop isnt exactly PurpatraitorMGS.
I made my account before trophies and I didn't really ever play online on my PS3. I was also pretty young when I made it. So now that I've aquired a bunch of trophies and play online all the time on my PS4 I would love to change my stupid name.
It's like tattoo's? Whut? So choosing a name for an online avatar is now the same as choosing a tattoo? Logicfail.
At Blackwolf12.....You miss my entire point. On Playstation you can Not change your name. I am referring to deciding ur name because you can't change it. Just like a tattoo you decide to put one on ur body but you cant change it when its done. However try to understand my point. Im referring to just Playstation and not other services.
or maybe they were young when they made their account and want to change it because their maturity level change? ppl make mistakes...im sure you have made one or two that you wish you could change.... maybe starting with your comment
"It's like tattoos".
Actually you can remove tattoos these days
Plud your username is digital, so there is no reason why you can't change it.
@Sy_Wolf I am stupid last time. But now I got smarter. That's all I get from your point.
seriously if you have created it stop whining and just live with it. Remember you made it right from the beginning and not one put a gun on your head to force throat you with what you have choose and created yourself. It is not that I agree that Sony dont allow the change. If they do allow one day that is just a nice gesture imo rather than something that is really needed. But i do not agree when you want others to fix your own stupidity. I know some people give stuff like oh my parent created it for me when I was young and blah blah blah. Still you live with it. It is like saying if you have a family name that sound stupid then you wanna change your parent. Seriously.... get over it, it is just an online nick and nothing more.
Yeah , if they get the option cool , but i dont understand why , for other things that throwaway mail spam boxes or forum places like well here , people pick up stupid or inflammatory names . You dont have to a writer to come up with a cooler sounding name
@JoGam "When people decided on their names they should have choose a name they can be comfortable with for ever" WTF kind of statement is that. The only thing consistent in life is change. If i created psn id when i was 10 in 2006 and i was into ben 10 or wateva and my user name was ben10forever at age 10 this would make sense. 8 years later at age 18 ben10forever probably no longer represents your feelings or expressions.
The statement is fact until Sony decides to change their policy and allow name changes. What im saying is when people decided on a name from today and prior and because no system is in place to change names you must decide on a name that u are comfortable with forever because there is no way to have it changed. For the record im not saying you shouldn't be allow to change it.
how many online services besides xbox live actually allow you to change your username?
@snarls20 most of them actually. Your online handle is just a screen name and is easily changeable. @JoGam It's not possible for me to disagree with you anymore than I do right now. That statement is so entirely wrong.
Looks like JoGan is fending off a lynch mob, and all for stating some facts. He didn't make the rules. He's not advocating them either (his very first post states the ability to change you PSN ID would be a good thing), he's just telling you how it is under the current terms and conditions. His analogy with the tattoo isn't far off either. I think too much has been read into his comment
please read a firmware where i can watch videos and stuff from my external harddrive, its frustrating that ps3 had that feature and we still don't on ps4
Give me Friend notifications and Ext HDD.Support and I'm good.
Vegeta agreed and I love how Sony listens to us and give us quality over quantity let's rock PS4:)
And media support, and wallpapers, and login privacy options, and folders, and that date with Lupita I was promised.
^^^-this plus - audio play back through speakers, I could plug in a USB mic, and have audio playback through speakers/ ps3/ - good for setting a party vibe when others in the room can hear what's going on, & not having to use headset's.
We dont need Ext HDD support. Its not like games' size are 50 GB already...
I seriously cannot understand how game sites are still sourcing this fraud. After all the things that have been wrong so far. Most of the time it's just iteration of what has been said by Sony elsewhere.
Tidux is the worst! waits until someone Sony related lets the slightest thing slip & then jumps on it with his palm reading style vague loophole "Leaks". The guy is a joke!
Stopped reading at "leak". Aaand added the site to the adblock blacklist.
Totally agree this site should be banned as tidux is a complete fraud. I could even guess half the crap he says and if he is wrong just says those parts did not make it in.
When / What has he ever gotten wrong? There were times where he was sarcastic, there were times that certain plans were changed (because he dropped hints months in advance like e3 predictions). But Firmware he has been pretty spot on. He is actually incredibly accurate if you know how to read him.
Do these "insiders" gets paid by sites like Gamepur or similar sites for using their so called "insider info" to create articles like this? If not, can it really be someone who does this just for attention or "internet fame"? (If that is a thing lol)
Hardly leaked when it isn't a fully reputable source
Tidux teased the features and we all know an update is coming. Leaked would be the Master Chief collection before E3.
"Some interesting details regarding upcoming Playstation 4 has been leaked." lol didn't read Aww you edited your post
Really hope this is true, cuz media playback is long overdue.
So true...how about a floating media player!
Tidux's predictions are always rather vague. Almost like they are guesses general enough that they will probably come true. "Media Playback" can mean many things. Still though, wasn't there a Sony executive that accidentally leaked a media app via screenshot a few months ago? Maybe it's that?
I can't remember that. But I do remember it being reported here on N4G about a month or 2 ago. A link to a Sony job website looking for people to work on media applications for consoles.
I found it: http://www.dualshockers.com...
Tidux is a moron. Could individuals stop passing on his guesses as facts.
I wish people would actually go back, look at his past fake rumours and realise that he isn't a very good source...
i was thinking that to myself, because the last time he had a "good source info" on some "big update" nothing happened except some system stability stuff.. so he's kinda been recycling the same info every time.
Sony's firmware update are slow but steady.
Slow like a week in jail.
Never been in jail, so I'll have to take your word for it.
Media playback and menu folders please! Two biggest things holding me back now I'd unorganized ps4 menu and not letting me watch movies off my external hard drive.
So you don't have a smart tv to use your external? It does just fine as I do this myself. Music on the other hand is long overdue and so is 3d support. Things like dlna and youtube should already be on the ps4 games wise I can wait for those as I have something to always play and I'm not simple minded and stubborn and play just shooters and sports and any person who buys a console only for one game is crazy. Try new things people everything doesn't have to be pc graphics for people to like them. Back on topic the more the better lets hope when it comes it isn't a buggy mess so take all the time you need. I am one of those that are for folders and maybe a name change but no big deal right now. Maybe this time next year we get something like backgrounds.
The TV can do it but it doesn't do a good job. Really bad input lag and an awful UI. Always have used the PS3 because it was fast and smooth. I haven't seen a tv good a better job than the ps3 or the 360 did.
Not hard to guess since MS announced they are getting 3d blu ray support in August update of course Sony has to update the ps4 to match what Xbox one can do or try to do more.
only sad that the competitor has to announce it first to get Sony to do something for their customers... and that includes me. Makes me wanna hit Sony in the face to wake them up!
Firmware updates are not an overnight decision. They take time. Sony has probably been working on this for a few months.
@Gamer666 uhmmm... these are not overnight decisions. I work for an IT company and with each project we provide our customers with a schedule of what to come in the future... I mean 3D bluray playback just belongs to a BluRay player and Sony is even part of the BluRay committee! They are producing bluray discs and hardware players as well. They even got bluray software. It is alreay disappointing to not have this feature right away... Let's face it. I didn't expect MS to show Sony how to do it... and its sad for me because I love PS! Otherwise I wouldn't care because I would be getting it from MS...
Whatever they add is very welcome by the ps4 community. I'm hoping for the ability to play our own music in games,miss that feature.
Still no mention of 3D playback? What the hell have that team been doing?
We have to wait until gamescom to get an update??? Are you at Sony sooo busy with PS Now and morpheus that you have forgotten about the PS4? :D
I just want the standby feature so I can jump straight into my game ala ps vita. I'll take mp3 playback to but I rarely listen to music while gaming so not to big an issue for me.
About time! Currently, my PS3 is sitting pretty as my media showpiece.
OMG WTF, I just bought a PS3 because I wanted these features on my PS4, and some of you have probably seen me ranting about this on XBOX One articles. Thank you Sony finally, but mann my luck, I just literally bought a PS3 yesterday off ebay. But atleast I get to benefit from all the PS+ offerings for PS3.
