SegmentNext - Well, it looks like Sony and its employees are pretty serious about introducing fan requested features in PlayStation 4.
Custom themes and avatars oh and the ability to change your psn id
They know VERY well what PS4 users want. And it has been like this for years with EVERY major request that will be posted again on this page, including these two. This PR move is pure placebo.
Backward compatibility with PS1/2...for free
Privacy settings, so I can hide from my friends! :)
That and external HDD, mp4, mp3, mkv support!
MP3's are playable on the PS4.
I stand corrected!
No brainer things which should have been on the console at launch. MP3's especially even if it was added later.
OR just watch your stolen movies and TV shows on your PC....Nobody cares that pirates want to stream from their PC because more movies are starting to use Cinividia audio protection so trying to watch it on a console cuts the audio 20 minutes into a movie....
You can stream more than pirated movies through DLNA. You can stream your own movies, pictures, and music. You can stream legally owned movie content. You can stream already streamed content. And much more. To assume that everyone that uses DLNA does so to pirate content is reaching pretty far. having all this content from a single server is far more convienant than moving it around all the time. Cinevideo will be cracked just like every other copy protection has been in the past, if it hasn't been already.
The ability to rip songs dirctly off of CD's dirctly to your HDD.
Agreed. Even if not universal, I'd settle for Google cast implementation!
Quite happy to sit back and let Sony surprise me with new features, as I don't really have any "problems" I need them to address. I'd like to be able to specify different audio output for HDMI and Optical at the same time (ie linear PCM on HDMI, and bitstream on optical), but that's minor. I'd like to see them keep investing in PSN infrastructure, but that's not really a Playstation 4 feature per se.
I want to play my purchased PSone and PS2 digital games on PS4. And no I dont have the internet infrastructure to use PSNOW nor is it available in my country.
THIS Seriously PS Now or not I'm not paying for my games again
True external hdd support please.
PS2 and PS1 disc emulation.
But if you already have the disk why would you pay to rent the games? Chances are player purchased most of the games they liked on those old systems.
Let me know when a friend logs in to PSN. Thats all i want.
i know its close to impossible but i really want backward compatibility
Change PSN ID, delete Trophy lists (no restrictions), and make it so anyone play any game on their PS4 regardless of account restriction bullcrap. Why should family need to subscribe to PSNow multiple times?!
Even netflix have a limit on how many people you can share your account with.
Way to compare apples and oranges, bravo. Genius. Sarcasm thick enough yet? Netflix lets you watch TV on any account and no restrictions on the same PS4. You don't have to log in separately with a different payed account. PSNow, you are locked out 100%. Its stupid. I think it extends to bought games also but I dont recall.
External USB HDD support has got to be number 1.
For them to fix the PS store so it'll load. I swear it works fine when I boot up the ps4, then after I play a game or something.... nothing comes up. Been that way for months.
who are you with for broadband? or do you use netgear equipment? i had major problems with store,loaded at boot but then never again(just blue screen) or if on fifa if trying to get gold packs with coins i got store errors. changed to a TPlink router and issue instantly gone nad never had the issues since. everyone i have told who has virgin media(superhubs in router mode) or any other netgear router have changed to another brand and issue gone forever.
Might be something else wrong, with the ISP or something you have. I have never had that problem in well over a year of owning my PS4.
They've had PlayStation.Blog.Share for half a decade. There was a turning point in the PS3's lifecycle where Sony was serious about introducing fan requests. I feel like PS4 itself is a culmination of everything that mattered from a gaming standpoint, but they took 2 steps back when it came to non-gaming and multimedia. Probably a good thing all things considered, but I miss many of PS3's great multimedia features on my PS4. Luckily I still have both. I want Sony to let me change my PSN ID, and have an option of external HDD storage. I want the ability to stream any game I've already purchased via PSN on PlayStation Now. They already know what games we've bought digitally, let us stream those games without charging us the Earth.
@DigitalRaptor. To be able to use PS Now to stream games you've already bought via the PS Store is a great idea. It effectively gives you access to your digital PS3 catalogue on your PS4. I hope Sony do it!
I want the ability that PS3 had brought to PS4, so that i can press triangle, right click, scroll down to save target and build up another magnificent and majestic porn collection.
I'd like notifications when friends I always play with jump on.
Man it would be cool to customise you're page and if you click on a friend it would take you to their custom page with custom music background kinda like the old MySpace days
Friend online notifications with options Video playback support Option to Include party chat in DVR recording DLNA support Change PSN ID feature Option to delete stuff from library list like betas etc. Custom themes External HDD support
Support for Logitech G27 racing wheel.
People add me on CrimzenXsAge none of the people i know in real life have ps4s
Changing your name and and having all your downloaded games into one folder instead of spread horizontally across the desktop.......good lord that's annoying
I'm thinking Sony's holding off on the custom themes because they want to sell their own. Still, I want this. I want to be able to set a screenshot as my background. I have so many good ones. I'd also like an appear offline feature.
Just two things, show when your friends pop up online(I would think this is pretty standard, I mean even the PS3 does it) & second, for the love of dead god, LET US CHANGE OUR PSN NAMES!! Seriously, some people have had a PS3 since 2006 or 2007 & it's 2015 now, almost a decade. Most ppl probably aren't the same person they were a decade ago & would like to change their "stupid PSN names" myself included. Granted I myself didn't get a PS3 till 2009, SONY can't seriously sit there and tell me that four years from now I'm still gonna have the same PSN name on PS4 as the one I made in 2009 when I bought my PS3 slim. On second thought, it's already been this long so I doubt they'd implement now considering they haven't already despite a lot of ppl requesting it. There's that little hope though, ya kno.
Folders Friend Notfications (Appear offline to hide from friends) USB video support custom wallpapers DLNA Avatars (yup people still want them) Profile comment Text chat needs fixing, it's not like the PS3 TC.
Bluetooth headset support!
Custom wallpapers!!!!!!! Please!
PSnow integrated into PSplus.
IMO that would be megaton news. I'd like to see upgraded cloud save space, personally...
Mkv with subs playback, for all my anime needs~
All I want is to play ps3 games on my ps4 !!
External hard drive support...please
Like they don't know what people want,there's going to be many requests about features they're not going to implement. Why not include a real feedback for errors and technical issues towards games and the system,now we have to go to individual forums to make a request and be lucky if they're going to help you. Why not include many of the functionality the PS3 had like copying text from webpages instead of the link only. FIX the freezing of the system,there's more than enough RAM available this time and the browser still freezes or notifies there isn't enough system memory available :S. Include more options for the DAMN LIGHT of the controller,i want to turn that shit off it drains it like crazy. Just a few things that really irritate me and i have endured.
NOT a priority, but I wish we could erase undeletable notifications. I have some random friend requests I cannot delete...
