PS4 Countdown: Do you care that it doesn’t play MP3s?

From the article, "There’s been a fair amount of handwringing about the PS4 FAQ. It has taken a few steps backward from the PS3 in functionality. [Brian Allen] can’t say any of it is a dealbreaker for me, and I suspect the majority of people who have pre-ordered feel the same way.

The PS4 won’t support streaming media from your computer, which is probably a move designed to steer more users toward Netflix."

I don't but it would be naive for me to say nobody cares because it is clear that some people do. I don't think it is a deal breaker but Sony should reconsider this choice

allformats1810d ago

No. I've never played an MP3 on my PS3 so...

mewhy321810d ago

I don't care at all. I'm buying this thing for the amazing graphics, online play, and exclusive GAMES.

God stop being such a damn fanboy, this is coming from a PlayStation fanboy, what Sony did by not supporting MP3 was just dirty. They were trying to force consumers to buy Music Unlimited if they wanted to listen to music. Stop always defending companies like everything they do is for the good of consumers, no its for their company. I'm not saying Sony is bad a company but compared to Microsoft and Nintendo they are the best out of the 3.

I purchase gaming consoles strictly for gaming. I have never installed or ran an MP3 off of a console. I'm not even sure how to do so. I have maybe 10 songs on my smart phone and that's only to plug into my treadmill when I'm putting in some miles and I had my son install them on my phone for me.

I'm just about the games. All the other options and features these consoles offer other than gaming don't appeal to me personally. Just give me them games and get out of my way!

Im with you Flamehawk, they better rectify this. This system better do everything the PS3 did and better. Otherwise i will be crying bloody murder. This defending them business is fanboyism gone wrong. Just like when the MS fanboys defended the RROD, its pathetic and its got to stop.

how many mp3 player do we already have inside the house?

kreate1809d ago

I'm not buying a ps4 to play ps1 games, indie games, play mp3, or any CDs.

Don't care. Further more something this can be solved with one firmware update, so no big deal

dantesparda1810d ago

i do care, but i agree that it can be easily fixed with a firmware update, and it better be soon

sigfredod1810d ago

I'm pro PS4 all the way, but i do care, i have a huge mp3 library on my PS3 and i want to tranfer it to my PS4, so Sony i want my mp3 playback

iHEARTboobs1810d ago

It sucks that they're cutting these features from the PS4 to steer us towards something that we'd need to pay for. It's not a deal breaker, I am still getting it primarily for games, but it does suck. It would be nice to have custom music for certain games also.

So I can't listen along to Barbie Girl when I play Killzone Shadow Fall.......lame /s

I use Winamp on my PC, so no. But i was shocked to see such a basic feature didn't make it at release.

Excalibur1810d ago

No, I have an MP3 player for that.

MasterCornholio1810d ago

As long as it can play games right out of the box I don't really care.
