10 Most Wanted Features The PS4 Is Still Missing

"Sony really came out strong at E3 this year. They wowed the crowd and really left their competition reeling and so worried Microsoft had to completely change their game plan. There is no doubt that the PS4 is going to be an amazing piece of hardware upon it's release. With all the features that are going to be available to the console on Day one it seems like Sony didn't miss a thing. "

Folding @ home? Lol!

Coop play? That's not even a console issue ffs.

Remote access to your console? It exists, and its called PS Vita.

This whole list was horrible.
How is a release date a feature?
Hey, Steve, wanna come by and try out my release date on my ps4? Its badass, man.

I stopped reading on the first reason he said quote:

"What about those who want to pick up a PS4 and don’t have fast internet connectivity (you know, the main reason people previously knocked the Xbox One?) but still want to enjoy PS3 games?"

Sorry the Xbone was "knocked" because it REQUIRED you to log in every 24 hours if not your console would be as good as the brick it is.

Has this guy done any research? Sony didn't just say PS3 won't be playable on PS4, no Sony made that hard decision because they wanted to be more developer friendly that's why they went with the x86 architecture.

There have been a lot of "Cerny explains" articles, we need the one where he explains why they decided to go with x86 architecture rather than the Cell 2 which was a choice very early in PS4's development.

Here is the video that encompasses all of those "Cerny Explains" articles and future ones.

pixelsword1937d ago

Gaming bolt has always done horrible PS3 articles, so I don't see why they wouldn't continue that with the PS4; so this doesn't surprise me.

Kevin ButIer1937d ago

Lol this "list" guy wants a pc... not a ps4

zeee1937d ago

Who approved this sh**? No seriously, who and why??

SideShort1937d ago (Edited 1937d ago )

Love how the PS4 can do no wrong right now. Microsoft doesn't have backwards compatibility because they're flat-out greedy. Sony doesn't have backwards compatibility because they wanted to be developer friendly and has made a hard choice. Ahhh gamers, gamers, gamers.

HyFackingDro1937d ago

Pretty mush everything on the list isn't on xbox either... lol funniest yet "folding at home" who the f*** wants that?

malokevi1937d ago

How do articles like these get approved? From both camps. I see them every day. It amounts to nothing more than a shoddy attempt at trolling.

Until you have 10 legitimate features that the PS4/XB1 is missing, then take your face and shut it! (keyboard... face..? keyboard.)

The PS4 doesn't cook me pancakes while I'm in the shower... that would be a system seller. But seriously I agree this list is awful. Nothing to see here people, no need to click on it.

In other news... PS4 is awesome!

Adityac1938d ago (Edited 1938d ago )

Xbox One will take care of that, you'll just have to turn the system on and leave it on with uncooked pancakes on top, the heat will cook dem pancakes. To stay, on TOPIC, this list is shit.

gameseveryday1938d ago


It's called Remote 'Play' not Remote 'Access'. The writer is talking about managing your content not playing it.

SpinalRemains1381938d ago (Edited 1938d ago )

Obviously you don't know how remote play works.

It works by giving you direct access to your xmb, not just the game. The game doesnt read your mind then magically load itself. You are looking at what is on the screen when you turn your PS on.

Remote play via Vita is remote access.

Unless yours does it differently, but I would guess you don't own a Vita.

patsrule3161938d ago

I believe remote play only works in your home over your network, not over the internet. I think the author is looking for internet remote access, rather than in home acess. Personally, I am not that concerned about remotely managing my system other than being able to buy something while away, but I can already do that through the sony store, so I am not really worried about that one.

SpinalRemains1381938d ago (Edited 1938d ago )


PS4/Vita is confirmed to have roaming access.

I fully intend to play Warframe from the bar, remotely, just to know I did so. How effing cool is that?

Yoshida has confirmed that it will indeed be remotely accessed via the internet.

Smoovekid1938d ago

In the PS4 UI demo the girl uses her phone to download a game.

patsrule3161938d ago


If thats true, that is awesome! The only thing I personally heard was during the reveal, which I thought the president of Gaikai said would work on your home network. Even that was enough for me as one of the reasons to go for the PS4 over XB1. So if there is even more to it, that is a nice bonus.

badz1491938d ago

that's nVidia's SHIELD you're talking about! Remote Play for the Vita has been confirmed to work via the internet which means it works everywhere with wifi

kupomogli1938d ago


You can use remote play between your PS3 and Vita right now over the internet. You have to turn the option on your PS3 to allow remote start or it won't work, but as long as your PS3 is connected wired or wireless at home and your internet is running, then whenever you're at a wireless location you can choose remote play with your Vita and use it there. It does have a slight latency, but good enough for most games to be playable through it.

patsrule3161938d ago

@badz149, What is Nvidia's SHIELD? I haven't heard of that (or at least don't remember hearing about it). What does that do?

@kopumogli, I don't have a PS3, but I do have a vita. I see the remote play ICON, but I have never had a chance to use it. I have the 360 and had an original Xbox, but never had a PS2 or PS3. I am switching over this generation, so I look forward to trying out the remote play.

SecondSon1938d ago (Edited 1938d ago )

Its sad how wrong some of the people here are.

You could manage your content on your PS3 for years now ever since the Playstation Store website was launched -.-


As for the article where do I begin?

Playing Currently Owned PS3 Games without Cloud Streaming:
He states he wants to verify his old games on the PS4 and then be able to download them onto his hard drive so he can play offline.

First that would mean you could then sell the game and still continue playing it.

We would all need to waste money on Cell processors.

If you have PS3 games you have a PS3 to play them on stop whining its not the end of the world.

Full 4K media support:
He says if Sony wants to get the most out of their graphics they need to force 4k on developers but then we would only be playing mini games because we would waste huge amounts of processing power on more pixels and not better environment details, effects and physics -.-

PlayStation Mobile:
Yes because the last Playstation Mobile proved how much Playstation gamers cared about something like that.

Want games on the go? Get a Vita.

Remote Access to Your Console:
We already have that. With the internet even guys that know nothing about gaming think they are gaming journalists. -.-

Digital Game Sharing:
Digital gaming requires harsh DRM we don't want that crap not yet at least! Sony knows that.

[email protected]:
[email protected] worked so well because of the Cell processor and if you buy gaming consoles to help scientists and not for the actual games I work for Cancer Research UK send us a check of $400.

Better Codec Support:
mkv2vob download it. Mkv files are converted in minutes to vob because they are almost identical. Or stop pirating strange formats.

Better Network Presence:
Learn how to set up a media network over WiFi

Dear god this article is a joke!

JRH77831937d ago

When I had a psp I would use remote play. Back then I had a external hard drive connected to my PS3 and would watch the movies on my PSP wherever I had Wifi.

Remote play gives you access to you PS3 as if you were looking at your television. You can do everything except play games that don't have this feature. The PS4 is said to push remote play on all games so it should be more friendly this upcoming generation.

DarkAzureIIIX1937d ago

@Rashid Sayed

Ok, well here the Remote 'Access' :

it allow you to manage your content. :)

Lol, that made me chuckle. Bubs up mate :)

fattyuk1938d ago

And your reply made me chuckle.


_FantasmA_1937d ago (Edited 1937d ago )

Better yet, come over so I can release my date all over you face! :D

andibandit1938d ago

I do hope that PS4 has more Coop exclusives this time around.

titletownrelo1938d ago

hopefully I can access the internet browser while still in game. Not a huge priority but still, its annoying having to exit outta everything.

DeadlyFire1938d ago

That is in there. I am pretty sure they mentioned co-processor in there. HSA means doing more things at once. I expect PS4/XB1 both support this. Also there is a video showing the UI kinda with guy playing Knack pausing and browsing PS Store to download Killzone: Shadow Fall. So its likely in the PS4 this time.

DeadlyFire1938d ago

Missing features that are actually on the list.

- Mod support

They got one out of 10 correct!!!

FamilyGuy1937d ago (Edited 1937d ago )

LOL, he mentioned [email protected] when PS3 already closed this feature.

Why not mention Home?
There are many people waiting to hear word from Sony about it and so far all we've heard is "We're not talking about support for or the inclusion of Home on the PS4 at this moment".

MKV and FLV support would be nice, especially with Subtitle options for MKV.

This guy also didn't realize we had Game Sharing waaaaay before M$ ever mentioned a family sharing plan that was snatched away before its actual inception.

A lot of his points already exist. Key board and mouse support exist already as well as "completely customizable button mapping for all games". You can do the math on that one.

Game mods exist on the PS3, in extremely rare cases (UT3) so it'd be cool to have that on PS4

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1937d ago

Mods?? really?

Does he know its a console?? Free content and console are still weird.

showtimefolks1937d ago

TAURUS-5551937d ago

those are features ?

PS4 is absolutely complete in my books.

dcj05241931d ago

Fine to me. Bringing footage from ps4 to PC. Modding, Keyboard&Mouse support, & Folding hone all sound like great features.

The ps4 should have a feature where it overheats to the point where you can fry eggs on it. That or no buy

GenericNameHere1937d ago

I think that already came out. It's called the Xbox 360.


Need4Game1938d ago

1. Make every PS4, a Devkit, a $399 console capable of making AAA Games by itself*.

2. Linux for PS4

*Monitor/TV, Keyboard, Mouse, electricity and etc may be required.
