After the backlash that Sony received after the news that the PS4 would not support MP3's or DLNA, apparently they've decided that they will in fact be supporting both of those in the 2nd PS4 patch.
Though there have been a few missteps on Sony’s behalf from the recent FAQ post riddled with mistakes of no MP3 support, NoDLNA support, and a few other features that are not
available at launch. We were able to speak to a Sony rep today about if any of these features could be implemented in the near future and much to our surprise we have received a “Yes“. The future update that is in process to be rolled out shortly after the PS4′s launch(November 15th) will include the following detailed features listed below:
- Legacy headset support
- Mp3 support for not only in-game but non gaming as well.
- Suspend and resume play feature
- DLNA support for media such as (streaming Mp3, Videos etc.)
All of these features are set to hit PS4′s consoles by late 2013- to early 2014. Which we hope Sony will deliver sooner upon. From what we know these features are being packed in the 2nd forth coming PS4 firmware update. Also these details were hinted today when Shuhei Yoshida made a post on twitter stating that he had a discussion with other PlayStation 4 development team members about received feedback. With this news being provided Those these features are a definite step in the right direction. We were still unable to confirm future external hard drive support for media or game data would be supported later on. lastly we’re still waiting to hear if there will be future YouTubesupport for video sharing. What do you think of this good news do you think Sony still needs more features to claim the living room in this next gen console war? comment below let us know.
This is great news if it is true but I'd think that a lot more gaming websites would have this up if it were true. Having a nameless Sony rep doesn't really give me a lot of hope but we'll just have to wait and see I suppose.
