The latest PS4 firmware update is now live, bringing 3D Blu-Ray support to the console.
Wow. Tonight was a great night. First TLOU LIVE, Then the release of the game and now 3d playback for movies.
Good, now feedback people try it and let us know how the ps4 performs (I cant wait to get home in 8 hrs...)
Tested it for a few mins and it works great!
I was wondering what 1.75 featured. I too was prompted upon booting up to play TLOU. I'm glad they added it, cause I've got a 3D TV which needs some more 3D love. Btw, TLOU in 60fps is oh so sweet. I was curious about the 30fps lock and switched once to try it... Heeeeelll no. I switched right back to 60.
sony i want to be able to use my external hard drive on ps4 to watch videos and stuff, we had it on ps3. why is it taking so damn long on ps4
great update happy, as much is i game on my console i dont mind kicking back and watching a movie now and again
Same here. I do actually watch 3D movies a lot. In fact, I only buy movies if they are 3D now. It comes with regular 2D version anyway so. Now, all we need is audio file playback and all video playback and to see when friends sign on and off.
What do you think about Noah releasing in 3D worldwide today except here in America? Disney has Ratatouille 3D out in Europe http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rat... But not in the States, that's wack
I think it's a bad business decision. I will import it from Europe in that case. I got a few movies from Europe anyway so it's not a big deal.
thats very strange. I wonder why.
Better than nothing. But It still sucks, in 2014 there are no friends notification. I dont know when the last time my friends were online.
Why would that matter?
It wouldn't matter if you have no friends.
If anything, make it possible to select which friends you want notifications to appear. The last thing I wold want is countless notifications of all of my friends going on and offline.
No doubt. It always would interrupt watching movies and shows with the family. It takes away from the immersion.
That's actually on the spot. A notification that would be able to configure would be awesome. Which groupe of persons, playing the same as you, or not at all when you're watching a movie. That would be pretty sweet.
Honest to god im not trying to troll. But Sony could duplicate Xbox version of notifications and Id be good with that. Especially the on off switch
i hope they never bring in friends notifications as its just annoying and i don't like the feeling i'm being noticed of going online by my friends. i don't want to seen as a game addict.
I don't mind if they put friend notification in as long as I can turn it off. I don't want to know when my friends are popping on and off while I'm watching a Movie.
You do know you can sign out of your PSN account and play offline right?
They're doing the same thing as you, at the same time..
@Magnes Then just sign out before playing your movie
You know every single time Sony updates the PS4 firmware there is someone saying "I don't need this. I want X feature..." And then a bunch of people pile on asking for that feature. Later, after Sony releases a new firmware that adds the feature, the comments here are "Okay but what I really want is Y". Sony can never win in the firmware game. Someone will always want something it doesn't yet have. We all know it will eventually get friend notifications and media features and it is good that as fans we apply pressure but for once can we actually be happy when they do add these features rather than immediately slam them because they didn't add the one you perceived to have priority?
I don't see anyone complaining here. Friends notification has been something folks have been asking for since Day 1.
Well said Gamble. It's a human trait to take your eyes off what you get, or what you've already got as your focus is entirely on what's missing or what you should have got. @Ghost - maybe you should look harder. English_learner complained that Sony hadn't already implemented friends notifications. Which in turn sparked a debate on wether they were good or bad (split opinions on that too) So in summary, Gambles observation was entirely correct, at every single firmware upgrade. I'm just unsure why Ghost decided to add his tuppence worth when it's clear from the comments that not everyone has been waiting on friend notifications
That's typical of anything like this. You can please some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all the time.....
Remember back in the day when you bought a console and what you got was as good as it was ever going to get? I don't recall ever hearing any complaints about features it didn't have. You just played your games and that's all that was expected. Now people complain if it won't play all of their media in the exact way they want it. As a general media device these things are great. You can still buy a BluRay player to play movies in 3D, you don't have to use your console to watch them.
Gamble: Yeah, it's kind of like this: https://m.youtube.com/watch...
Well here's the thing, certain features should have been their day 1. Like dlna, wallpapers/dynamic themes, folders, notifications, 3d movie playback. All these things are on the ps3
@jwm2: People complain because for example as a media player PS3 is much better than PS4. Even after this update it is still so. People complain because a lot of people used PS3 as media player and PS4 is still completely worthless as media player. Heck, for a lot of people PS3 is still a lot better than PS4. So I understand completely those complaints. And probably some people say that Sony has promised those and those features for PS4. I don't trust big companies at all, no matter whether it is Sony or MS or Nintendo. Companies lie all the time so feature just doesn't exist on console until after it is released. If feature you really want doesn't exist, just don't buy the console.
I would assume more people would want friend notifications first. Im not an avid 3d viewer, but I would imagine most that have a 3d tv already had a capable player before ps4. I understand there are some that might have just bouhht a new 3d tv since they got ps4 and are waiting to buy a player, but that is a very small percentage compared to those that would like and or us the notifications addition
@Solid You can say you wanted them there day one but the really didnt need to be. It doesnt make any difference that the ps3 had them becuase they worked on the ps3 os for a long time. It didnt even have in game xmb when it launched. Its not like the ps4 is built off the ps3 os so its irrelevant. I dont think anyone would have wanted the ps4 delayed just for music. I dont need my playstation to play music.
gamble but could we please get features that ps3 had for sop long on ps4? like external harddrive support for media files?
