Come on Sony, you know you want to add these features
MY 1. priority - (3D)BluRay playback - install games on external hard drive (simply no exchange of the internal HD necessary anymore & not limit to future HD size limit) awesome features: playback any kind of audio format and video format maybe even 10bit h.264? :D I know other ppl want other features but this is it for me. I can live without all those social features that only takes RAM away for games.
PS4 already dedicated RAM for things like social features so no need to fret.
yeah but that part of the RAM could have been used for games instead. More RAM is always good especially if you want to achieve 1080p with 60fps
I have to disagree with external hdd installation. Usb drives are not as fast as an internal memory reader. The bus is not reliable. And it would only open up the console to more security threats. Sorry but if you install games and never play them then just delete them. (We all don't know that you are horder, but making comments like this tends to hint that you are.) Audio codecs. Mp3, mp4, wav, and maybe flac are the only codecs that are trust worthy.
3d bluray support folders mkv support with DTS external HD support thos 4 things and this generation is in the bag.
Games and then some more games, and after that perhaps some more games. Then maybe some of these features. And more games.
If this wouldn't be about features than games is all I want, too :D But as I moved to digital this gen my HD will be getting full very fast with all PS+ games + PS4 games. I prefer switching USB HD then changing the internal HD. That way I can even plug in a 6TB drive. 3 times more than the internal maximum.
Some of those features were advertised OVER A YEAR AGO. It's a bit ridiculous they take so long getting these features out.
some eatures for announced for the ps3 at the reveal took even longer to get released if i remember
My feature would 3D bluray playback and that would be all!
An xbone Emulator!
The features I want are 3D blue ray play back, 3D games and my number one is a true Bluetooth headset no wires to plug in to the controller or stupid dongles hanging from my console
Remember ps3 ad campaign it only does everything....wht the hell happend this is where the x1 wins. job adverts for sony research in that area show we are not getting anything major anytime soon I love my ps4 i just expected so much more at launch .
Not sure job adverts are a definitive way to tell what Sony are working on. There are already some people employed there :-)
Lol yeah because we get so many updates for the ps4 just like the x1 :) mp3 dlna external hrddrive support can't be that complicated if they had the people in place surely we wld have seen somthin. But I forgot u cant be critical of anythin sony lol.
That seems a pretty odd way to interpret my comment.
I said it the last time there was one of these articles. INSTANT RESUME It's amazing on my xbox one. I had a four day gap between playing watchdogs. When I came back to it after the four days the game was right there at the pause screen! No loading! I want this for PS4 as well. No sign of when it may happen though.
The PS4 is already a kick ass console. The lack of these 13 features does not a lame ass console make.
not wrong to make a great console even more awesome and show support to the fans and loyal customers. If a console can't connect to its consumer because of a missing feature and he or she choose to give another console a shot than that costumer could be gone forever. PS1/PS2 was great because Sony has less fears of competition. They had a different target audience than BigN. Developers made exclusive games for the PS1/PS2 because there was no one to beat Sony in what they were doing.
No console will ever be complete if your goal is to incorporate any feature a fan might want. If a user can't connect to the console because it's missing a feature, first of all they have the wrong priorities because a gaming console is supposed to be first and foremost about the games, and second of all it's not any console providers problem because you'll never be able to predict every feature everyone wants, nor can you please everyone. Like I said, the PS4 is already a kick ass console. Implying, even slightly, that it's not due to inconsequential features is foolish. Does the PS4 play games? Yes. Does it do so well? Yes. Why do gamers own consoles? To play games. PS4 has fulfilled it's purpose.
It's purpose is to be an entertaining device, not just play games. If it wasn't Sony would not bother with music and video. Don't say those are just bonuses either because that is not how the system was or is marketed. Why has it become your job to tell us what the system is? If all you want to do is plug a game in and play and not have any other feature that's your opinion but don't pass judgement because other people want to do more things with the console. I really don't get this defensive attitude. Consoles of today are nothing like consoles 20 years ago. They have become entertainment devices that do more than just games. People expect them to do more just like they expect their cellphone to do more than just make phone calls. But hey, keep fighting the good fight that your system is perfect the way it is but at the same time allow us to want things to be better. The article isn't implying it's a lame console right now.
Oh hey, it's my personal stalker here to miss the point of what I'm saying and instead invent some other point to frame the non-response with. How's life living in complete ignorance?

Sony spends a great part of their E3 conferences in reference to things that don't have to do with games and also features that compliment the games. Such as uploading to Youtube, Game Assist and Instant Suspend and Resume. Consumers also want features that the PS3 had such as DLNA streaming capabilities and 3D playback.It's purpose is to be as good of a product as it can be and since it's an ENTERTAINMENT device it can always be improved. "The PS4 is already a kick ass console. The lack of these 13 features does not a lame ass console make." The article never suggested the PS4 was a lame ass console, just features that would IMPROVE the system. Understand yet? Good.

Do you see all of this? All of it? Yeah, that's you completely missing the point of what I said. Go ahead and show me where I said any of that wasn't good? I'll wait. Oh, you've run out of bubbles and you can't. Well that sucks. Go ahead and make another account with which you can stalk me and copy and paste where I said any of that was bad. What I said, literally, is that the PS4 is already a kick ass console and that the lack of those 13 features does not make it not a kick ass console. The problem is that you, and people like you, can't actually read that. What you actually read was "The PS4 ain't need all that B.S. mp3 playback and I don't want it, ya'll are idjut's for wanting that B.S. hurr durr." See, that's why reading comprehension is your friend. "The article never suggested the PS4 was a lame ass console, just features that would IMPROVE the system. Understand yet? Good." And exactly where did I say the article suggested that in... "The lack of these 13 features does not a lame ass console make." Where are you seeing "this stupid article is saying the PS4 is lame because it doesn't have 13 features it thinks is important" hmm? Oh that's right, you're pulling B.S. out of your a$$ again. Bottom line: PS4 is already a kick ass console whose main purpose is to play games. That is why mp3 playback, 3D Blu-Ray playback, and DLNA support were not a focus of the marketing, or even features that were implemented at launch. Sony was going for a gaming console first and foremost, and that's what we have. Despite you not being willing to admit it, those features you're talking about are bonuses, not the core focus of the console (exception being Game Assist and Suspend Resume admittedly, since those were advertised but again are a part of the core GAMING focus of the console.. GAMING), not primary features that Sony felt should be implemented, they are bonuses. Don't like it? Tough sh*t, your personal and individual opinion doesn't drive the PS4's business model any more than mine does. Saying "I personally would love these features" is something I can get behind, and this article itself isn't implying that their word is law which is why I never said the article said the PS4 isn't a kickass console, but your attitude seems to suggest an overall attitude of snobbish entitlement and that Sony shouldn't dare not to include features you deem as a standard. Who the hell are you? No one. Get over yourself. But what else can I expect from the new account of MM. Keep it up dude, keep it up.
That's easy!!! Just buy a Xbox One, and don't have to wait on your Kick butt add ons, Really just let them be gaming consoles, not pcs please
agree with all of the features in the article (except 3d don't care for 3d) and would add external HD which is probably the most important feature Sony needs to at least announce ASAP.
Media Server I can't believe this still isn't on the ps4 I know we wanted a game console and i still stand by that, but why strip away like 50% of the services that a ps3 offered? Fuck me! Even the vita can do this! Why not the ps4?!
More like 13 things the Playstation needs to copy Xbox with, they got half of that list already.
Really? CD playback is their #1 choice? For me, youtube sharing, DLNA, more customization would be nice. It would also be nice to have a feature where if you want to upgrade the internal drive, you can plug it in as an external first and the PS4 will copy everything that's on the current disc so that you can then just pop it inside the PS4 and be done. I recently upgraded my drive, and restoring all the save data and redownloading all the games/dlc is quite a chore.
1 thing that bug me the most with the ps4.. is the trophys.. ffs make them part of the OS.. dont make me sync all the f-ing time just to se them. make is as the xbox 360...
Basically a Xbox One emulator...
3d bluray playback Official YouTube app Games folder Mp3 support and high Def media Sky go app New home Play memories Anything else would just be a bonus
All I want is to be able to neatly put all my games in one single folder/tile and delete things off the dash I dont use like video/Music unlimited.
Music unlimited for the win
