PS4 Won't Support MP3, Audio CDs or PC Media Streaming
Filed under: PS4, MP3


You're thinking of chilling back and playing your favorite music on your brand new, next-generation PS4 console? Hm, you'd better scratch that thought, because, as Sony officially confirmed the PlayStation 4 console won't be able to play audio CDs and will not support mp3 playback.

Previous models of the PlayStation console had built-in support for audio CD playback and for some reason backed out of incorporating this particular feature into its latest piece of gaming hardware.

Sony worldwide studios prez Shuhei Yoshida twitted: "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."

You do that Mr. Yoshida.

Hey, fabulous news though; gamers who want to choose their own music during games are going to have to use Sony's Music Unlimited streaming service.

I'm really surprised people are upset about this, to be honest. I've never once thought about using my gaming systems for music or even changing the in-game music. I rely on my computer mostly for tunes.
  Vader: It still seems like an odd decision tho...
im_stardust: You are surprised, cause you are a cunt.

It's surprising because it has a BluRay player, yet it can't play audio CDs? WTF, really? What's more stupid is not being able to use it as a media streamer. Good thing I've got my trusty WD Live TV box.

You forgot to mention that the Sony's Music Unlimited streaming service will cost (I believe) US$59.99/year or US$41.99/year for PS+ members,

I guess it isn't essential. It seems silly to not be able to do something as simple as that. I guess it is a try to get subscribers to their own Google Play service.
