I hope it comes out soon. I want Themes!!!

It would have been nice to have for DriveClub & uploading videos directly to our YouTube accounts. Hopefully around this month it will release.

WickedLester1261d ago

I was hoping for mp3 support for custom sound tracks in Driveclub.

Hmmm So its been rumored to be delayed from the original rumored release date ??? riiiiiiight

I really have no idea about the updates, I have no need for them, I usually only find out they are released when I turn on my ps4 and it updates, I dont understand the excitement for them but what ever floats ppls boats I guess.

fr0sty1261d ago

No reason to be excited about new features being added to our system... right? I mean, who needs themes, MP3 and video playback, folders, etc. anyway?

dantesparda1261d ago

Sony never said in Sept, they only said this fall (which is Sept, Oct, Nov). But i really hope this update has all the missing features on the PS4 cuz seriously there is a lot missing.

Rainbowcookie1261d ago

So I haven't owned a console since the n64, but I am looking into buying a ps4. If I buy say after the new update do I first have to update to the previous one and then update again to 2.0 . I'd rather ask the question here :)

MRMagoo1231261d ago


If you buy the ps4 after 2.0 comes out I can imagine you would only need to download that one patch on the day you take it home also what ever patches come for the games you may purchase or get free on psn plus.

So true! Did I hear correctly that the Vita update will bring Themes today?

Mega241261d ago

that was 2 days ago, and yes, it has themes now, although there's only 2 available.

chaldo1261d ago

I want themes and the ability to play PS4 games remotely on my Xperia Z3.. Lol. hate that it requires the 2.00 update :(

ThatOneGuyThere1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Z3 small print says november PS update required for remote play.

"* Functionality available on Sony Xperia Z3 starting in November 2014 . "

@Wicked How can anyone disagree with your comment?!?

RedDevils1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

I want dlna or mp3 to play my own music when gaming

The-Matrix-has-you1261d ago

I know right?! Personally I want themes, folders, external media and mp3 support. All of the other features Sony is working on are cool but not as needed or requested as features the PS3 already has. I cant wait for custom themes!

This insider from twitter is probably a no-body just guessing.

Yeah positive thinking is the best thing to do lol.

UltraNova1261d ago

Dude: Yeah lets build up those positron* tanks dudeeeee!!

Bro: Bro, so real, Bro!!!!

*-Positive thinking awesome-energy units, dude!!!

NJShadow1261d ago

Actually no, Tidux is a legitimate source with an excellent track record.

jXales1261d ago

No he's not.

Hes someone who made a few obvious guesses spends massive time trying to search info to make educated guesses...

people should stop quoting him as newsworthy insider.

show me a real connection.

DarkLord10031261d ago

Tidux was right on many things before....
But I like to think positive - so the Firmware Update is coming very soon ^^

1nsomniac1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Tidux has never been right before unless the information was slipped by official reps on the playstation blog. That's fact not opinion so stop with the spreading of BS!!

Everything else he "leaks" is completely unspecific, vague & common sense.

Bennibop1261d ago

I believe that he probably is correct and it has been delayed, Microsoft have announced DNLA coming in their next update so I am sure Sony will be looking to add that into 2.0 to ensure they do not have missing features compared to the competition.

ScottyHoss1261d ago

There's no MP3, XB1 has that, so why would DNLA be a need because Microsoft has it?

Baccra171261d ago

Xbone can also play videos you put on your flash drive.

ScottyHoss1261d ago

Hopefully they will add all three features soon, but seriously, lol at the disagrees it's like they think I'm an Xbox fanboy but I haven't even bought one YET (have a PS4).

Muzikguy1261d ago

As much as I'd like to be optimistic, I disagree. With MS giving monthly updates Sony is just going to keep falling behind, since they do one every 6 months or so. They can't keep trying to catch the competition. They need to be a leader and set their own standard

RedDevils1261d ago

You gotta the other way around MS is the one that doing the catching up

DragoonsScaleLegends1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

PS1/PS2 emulation on PS4 before PS5 comes out and I would be happy. But if they are only putting them on PS Now then I feel the opposite.

They could sell the emulation software on PSN if it comes down to a money thing. Also I think more people would prefer to purchase there favorite classic game then to rent it.

GodGinrai1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )


" But if they are only putting them on PS Now"

That is the EXACT reason why they wont do emulation. It is now a selling point for PSnow. emulation will only hurt their PSnow sub's sales. They are certainly aware of that fact.
