As we await the next generation of consoles that will be arriving next month, you might still have some questions. Well, we have some answers. In this case, regarding the PS4 at least. A frequently asked questions section posted by Sony today has confirmed the omission of several features on the PlayStation 4 that the PlayStation 3 always supported.
At launch, the PlayStation 4 cant use external storage, for one. It will also not be able to play music CDs, will be incompatible with MP3 playback, and cannot be used as a media streaming receiver, since Sony’s own DLNA protocol will not be supported by the device.
Video playback on the PlayStation 4 will be delivered by Blu-Ray disks, as well as Sony’s own video service. Music playback will require a subscription to Sony’s music streaming service. I have to say this is a terrible move by Sony. I understand why. They want to sell their own music service, but still…Shame on you. I hate it when companies act like gangsters. We should not be held hostage by our own consoles. Oh well, they will likely reverse this since it seems to have outraged so many users. Lame decision Sony.
