Wow. Tonight was a great night. First TLOU LIVE, Then the release of the game and now 3d playback for movies.

UltraNova703d ago

Good, now feedback people try it and let us know how the ps4 performs (I cant wait to get home in 8 hrs...)

heisenberguk703d ago

Tested it for a few mins and it works great!

choujij702d ago (Edited 702d ago )

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.

showtimefolks702d ago

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

THC CELL703d ago

great update happy, as much is i game on my console i dont mind kicking back and watching a movie now and again

Ares84HU702d ago

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.

Minute Man 721702d ago

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

Ares84HU702d ago

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.

wsoutlaw87702d ago

thats very strange. I wonder why.

english_learner703d ago

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.

SonyPS4702d ago

It wouldn't matter if you have no friends.

0P-Tigrex703d ago

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.

TM333702d ago

No doubt. It always would interrupt watching movies and shows with the family. It takes away from the immersion.

BG11579702d ago

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.

k3rn3ll702d ago

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

spacedelete703d ago

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.

Magnes703d ago

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.

Revengeance703d ago

You do know you can sign out of your PSN account and play offline right?

KwietStorm702d ago

They're doing the same thing as you, at the same time..

Utalkin2me702d ago

@Magnes

Then just sign out before playing your movie

Gamble20703d ago

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?

GhostTurtle703d ago (Edited 703d ago )

I don't see anyone complaining here. Friends notification has been something folks have been asking for since Day 1.

MoonConquistador702d ago

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

UnHoly_One702d ago

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.....

jwm2702d ago

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.

solid_snake3656702d ago

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

Pekka702d ago

@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.

k3rn3ll702d ago

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

wsoutlaw87702d ago

@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.

showtimefolks702d ago

gamble

but could we please get features that ps3 had for sop long on ps4? like external harddrive support for media files?

UnHoly_One702d ago

Xbox One didn't have it for awhile either, but they finally have it right.

You only get the notification for the people you want, and you can set it up so you don't get them at all while watching video.

I would imagine Sony will implement something similar at some point soon.

k3rn3ll702d ago

Id be fine if they just copied the xbox version of it.

wsoutlaw87702d ago

ya thats good because the 360s notifications were very annoying during movies.

Epic! Keep pouring on that gravy thick and sloppy SONY!!!!

SniperControl703d ago

@emptyskyform

Basically, what he is saying is, that the PS4 is perfect as it is, anything extra is gravy.

mmcglasson702d ago (Edited 702d ago )

Why did he get so many disagrees? I'm assuming because of all the illiterate people that can't comprehend what he was insinuating?

jwm2702d ago

I can see why people might disagree. You might put gravy on things you don't like and the thicker it is the more covering up it does. Only the OP knows the real answer.

user9558903702d ago

I don't think there is any correlation between literacy and being able to understand somebody's made up sayings. Chode

Good-Smurf703d ago

That's great news for people with 3D HDTV sets.
To me not much to get excited for except that they improve the sound quality at 1.5x playback speed.
I'm still waiting for media playback,you know anything that are not BR,DVD movies,I wanted FLAC and other high res audio format support but considering Sony took their sweet time releasing new update...well CD playback and MP3 is enough for the start...DLNA too.

Deadpoolio703d ago

Guess you'll just have to keep watching your stolen movies on a PC/PS3 or 360.....They aren't stupid there is no rush to add DLNA because a retarded 5 year old knows it's only pirates in a huge hurry to get it

drpepperdude703d ago

Wow I use it for just that...

spacedelete703d ago

i can tell for a fact the PS4 is already capable of watching pirated movies as i do it myself through the web browser. i'm actually surprised how easy it is.

jwm2702d ago

"Locks only stop the honest people from getting in", my grandma used to say.

Pekka702d ago

A lot of people wanting all of these features are not pirates. You can buy legal digital movies or music on internet, you know? I have a lot MP3 music and digital movies (completely legal) and I would also want to play CD:s, DVD:s etc. Right now, PS4 is missing so much that it isn't worth buying to me. There aren't even that many games, and almost all of them ports, so there is no hurry buying PS4.
