In terms of its media functionality, the PS4 is a downgrade. Im quite disappointed

Weird. But it suggests it's possible in some way and I think it makes it more likely that they might change this one day.

Eh, Japan has been able to change their PSN name on PS3 for long time. If it was going to happen this is probably when it would have.

I didn't know Japan could change their names. That just makes Sony's stance on it even more baffling.

See that's one thing I've NEVER cared for on any system. I guess it's a bummer if you play music or whatever on your system.. But, for me? It's always been a pointless feature.

I expect there will be an update late that allows it. I expect both the Bone and the PS4 to try to shuck their media service... It will fail and then they'll allow it.

It just seems disappointing that basic things that the PS3 is capable of, the PS4 wont be. Im really upset about the media server bc I would stream video content from my PC to my PS3 bc I much preferred to watch those on my big screen HDTV than small PC monitor. And no MP3 support? I guess this is why there wont be any custom soundtrack support outside of the Music Unlimited subscription. Developers cant even code it into their games as they were able to do with the PS3 since the PS4 doesn't have that functionality on a basic level. Lame

Yeah, like I said.. I'm sure that sucks as someone who uses that feature. It's one I'll never miss however. Not saying "Nya, nya sucks to be you" I can see why some would consider it a downgrade.

Like I said, I'd honestly expect a patch for it maybe a year or so from now when the subscription crap fails. And it will.

Well if it helps make anyone feel better, Yoshida responded to the feedback on Twitter.

Thanks for the feedback to the lack of MP3 and DLNA support at the launch of PS4. I'll share with the PS4 Dev team for future consideration.
It's nice that they have a face for their company who will quickly react to things going on in the community. Who knows if this stuff will be implemented, or when, but it's good to see reaction.

Yeah, while this stuff won't effect me at all, I can definitely see why this is a bummer for many people. Shame.

I really like Yoshida. Of all the people I follow and Tweet at on Twitter..He is one that often retweets, replys and favorites my posts. I feel like a mini celeb at times, haha.

If it gets changed as a result of this response to feedback that would be great PR. Microsoft don't have anyone remotely capable of this at the moment. The whole PR team is full of clowns.

Oh man I hope to see a update in the future adding those features, I was greatly disappointed today seeing the lack of CD and MP3/DLNA support. (and PS1 support but I suppose I'm in the minority with that...)

Haha, yeah. Bill Gates should just be the goofy nerd and be the company mascot. Have him enter the room on commercials and knock stuff over, or fall down a flight of steps only to be fine at the bottom..He can say things like "Good thing the Kinect 2 noticed I was falling and put all these mattresses down here to brace my fall!" play wonky music and show the One logo.

No external HDD support? Guess I'm still gonna have to keep my PS3 connected at all times now to watch movies and listen to music.

Indeed, I keep saying this to myself as I think if enough people speak up Sony will change the problems many have. Did the PS3 start out with external HDD support?

Oh maybe I misinterpreted what external HDD support is because I watch movies and copy/move save game game files from a external hard drive all the time. I suppose it means using it as an expansion of the memory.

I believe its in reference to game data, which is the bulk of the storage utilized on the HDD. You cant install games onto an external or store downloaded PSN games on there. External is simply for media files and game saves

so....wait........if I can't listen to audio cds or play mp3 files, how else am I going to enjoy music on the PS4??

does it support another audio format?

I was pretty excited and sure about the PS4, but this is a downer.

listening to music, either from a cd or mp3 file, is one thing I enjoy on my PS3.
