CoD is an inferior game so what does that matter? If CoD is the standard today then video games deserve to die.

Sharing recorded videos – No voice-over commentary and no YouTube upload!? (voice-over must be done real time)

This is the only real bummer, especially when compared to the X1 uploading interface, PIP, editing, the full suite.

Music and DNLA support will be patched in.

PS4 has the inferior version of CoD: Ghosts, too.

Depends on who you ask.

And either way, having the better version of a bad game is like winning the Special Olympics.

DLNA and mp3 are gonna be patched in with the next update. It's been confirmed already.

good was actually putting me off buying one for the simple reason i like my soundtrack to be Periphery to everything multiplayer :P

although its now a complete non issue for me me and the other half are going to Salou on holiday next year so doubt i can afford any next gen til least late 14/early 15 hahaha by then all the kinks will be worked out hopefully.

Sounds like a lot of 120fps, 4d, and multiple HMDi connection promises to me.

How can anyone believe Sony when they say, 'just wait it will come'. Knowing their history I would not be surprised for them to take away being able to play games half way through the gen.

500GB is obsolete. I suggest wait for a 1TB/2TB model. If you cant's wait then there's always the PC

Who cares if the console does not play MP3's?

That is what spotify/iheart radio/slacker/pandora is for. Hell, I haven't even downloaded an MP3 in over a year.

Wow. Another case of Sony promising the world and no delivering. I know cows have hopes that this list will be fixed and patched in soon. The reality is that "Greatness" may never come.

Just another bash PS4 thread huh?

Also, just because a patent is created doesn't mean it will be implemented.

I don't see how making people away of issues at launch as a bash thread. He makes some really good points. The comeback of that will be fixed latter is more sad than anything else. It's saying that it's ok to launch a product even if it's not ready.

I assume the media features will get patched. People do use their PS3 to listen to music (well I do). I used to use the DLNA server to stream PCM streams to the PS3 and play them through a digital amp. Well until the PS3 got hacked then I installed Showtime with cifs support and connected that to my server and played FLAC with it which was even better.

If Sony allow us to play FLAC,OGG and OPUS files they will be awesome. It's just more convenient to have one system play all the crap in the living room.

"Will PS4 support any 3D content, including stereoscopic 3D games?

Technically, PS4 supports 3D gameplay at launch in North America, though no launch titles are currently 3D compatible."

Completely agree. I, like most people I know have a media server that can stream content to pretty much anywhere, Tablet, phone, 360, TV, PC etc. I can even listen/watch my media content at work over a VPN. I know think Sony really dropped the ball with this feature and all this “we didn’t realise” or “PS4 is for gamers” is making them look extremely incompetent. These aren’t new features by any measure and as you say the PS3 has them so why take them away?

Well I stated that the PS4 won't support 3D Blu-rays, information from Sony own PlayStation 4 User's Guide

From Sony:

Playback of the following types of discs is not supported.

  • CD
  • BD-RE ver.1.0
  • BD-R/RE XL
  • Blu-ray 3D™
  • DVDs that have not been finalized

You mention 3D games which I did not, I'll make it more clearer in the list...

Who the f* buys a gaming console to listen to music? That's some MS level of stupidity right there.

Custom soundtracks are brill. Especially for sports, racers and fighting games where there's no story or dialogue or atmosphere.

I'm still getting a PS4. Some of these things make the wait to pick one up in 2014 more bearable.
