to the PS4 in a future update.

Sony recently revealed that the PS4 will NOT support audio CDs & MP3 in their PS4 FAQ here: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/10/30/ps4-the-ultimate-faq-north-america/#sect10

It appears that Sony has taken this step in order to force PS4 owners who wish to listen to music (on their PS4) - to pay for a Music Unlimited subscription.

I'm a current subscriber to Music Unlimited & I enjoy this service on my PS3 - however, I also have a large collection of audio CDs & MP3 files that I enjoy listening to on my PS3. It makes me very upset & angry (as a loyal Sony Playstation customer) to learn that the PS4 will not support audio CDs & MP3s. Therefore, I have canceled automatic renewal of my Music Unlimited subsbsription and I will not renew until Sony restores audio CD & MP3 support to the PS4.

THIS IS THE REASON THAT I'M CALLING ON ALL OF MY FELLOW SONY PLAYSTATION CUSTOMERS, WHO DON'T CURRENTLY HAVE A MUSIC UNLIMITED SUBSCRIPTION, TO NOT PURCHASE ONE UNTIL SONY OFFICIALLY REVERSES ITS POSITION AND RESTORES AUDIO CD & MP3 SUPPORT TO THE PS4. ALSO, I'M CALLING UPON ALL CURRENT MUSIC UNLIMITED SUBSCRIBERS TO CANCEL AUTOMATIC RENEWAL UNTIL SONY OFFICIALLY REVERSES ITS POSITION AND RESTORES AUDIO CD & MP3 SUPPORT TO THE PS4.

I'm on board.

On the other hand, Sony has already claimed that they listened to their fans, and they would support MP3s, with an update on PS4.

I suppose I'm technically helping your cause because I had no intention of starting a Music Unlimited subscription regardless of MP3 playback on the PS4.

I agree, i'm not subscribing to it either. Instead I have thought up of using my PS3 audio with my TV as I can choose whether or not the audio is coming from HDMI or Analog and then having the PS4 audio through my Receiver. This way when I want custom soundtracks I just plug my ps3 analog audio to the TV and just disable all music in game on my PS4.

Yeah its a bit of a work around, but it's free. And I will only be really using this on Racing games anyway

I just got a renewal offer to continue MUnlimited for $1 per month after being on it for a year at $12. I'm blown away by this service. I think that the mp3 and CD support will eventually come in an update.

I've got MU but never use it on my ps3 nor do I play music cds on my ps3 (or anywhere else) so this isn't a huge issue for me. I can sympathize with those who do play cds on their console. But I do think services like MU or Spotify is a better alternative than cds.
