No MP3, DLNA, external HDD and a lack of support for internal drives?

30 replies 449 views Edited Oct 31, 2013

Ok didn't much listen to MP3s or music on my PS3, so no biggy.

No DLNA support would make me mad if my TV and blu-ray player didn't support  this, so ok there.

NOW for the big one, no support for anything bigger then 1TB HDDs? less Sony has something in the works to make Laptop HDDs at 2TB+ fit the restriction of 9.5mm, I was so waiting to get my PS4 and pop in a 2TB HDD, that won't happen i guess.

 

Wish Sony had gone with desktop HDDs instead this time around, planned on getting a PS4 next summer at the earliest, but Sony waiting till last minute to dish out ALL the bad news makes me not even want one this gen. ATm I have a 750gb HDD in my PS3, a ton of games on it and still got over 100GBs free, i think, but since most games were in between 100mb and 15gb, that is nothing, this gen of games will be 30gb+ mostly, 1TB won't last long at all.

 

SONY fix this, add MP3, DLNA support and give us something other then 1Tb HDDs to work with here.

Oh good.

I'm soooo happy that they're happy.

 

What the **BLEEP**are they going to do about it?

 

I'm still thinking of canceling.  I can re-assess the situation if and when they fix this stupid decision.

 

Otherwise, I see little reason to part with my hard earned money right now.  What for?

 

The PS4 has very few good games available at launch now.  So I will still be playing PS3 games for the most part.

The PS4 is not backwards compatible.  So It won't replace my PS3 as a gaming machine.

And now it won't even be able to replace my PS3 for it's most basic of functions.

 

What is the point?  So I can play slightly shineyer versions of games that are also available on the PS3?

 

I think I may hold on to my money for the time being.  Reassess later just which console truly has the best over all experience.

 

After MicroSoft reversed all their decisions, I thought that they were still untrustworthy.

Apparently, Sony is just as untrustworthy, so what is the difference?

PS4 with no external drive And MP3 Support! ! Need Help

Oct 31, 2013
Hi, Ive already made arrangements to become a PS4 owner and found there's no DLNA, Media Server, External Drive for Storage, CD, or MP3 support. What's going on Sony? Can I connect a usb drive and play videos of my kid? Can I play MKV formated videos? Can I even transfer and save pictures to the PS4? This needs to be fixed.

Between these two tweets, it's pretty clear to me that the dev team is having a "come to Jesus" moment, and has put MP3/DLNA support on the feature list, right under the headsets and HDMI capture support.  I honestly believe it's only a matter of time now.

 

Can we please drop the schoolyard antics now?  In other words, let's stop calling each other names and demeaning one another over this.

if 1TB of space isnt enough for you then you need to learn how to organize a lot better.

Good link but:

Product Dimensions: 2.8 x 3.9 x 0.4 inches ; 4.8 ounces

 

Will that fit? I thought 2.5" just like the PS3.

Pretty sure, considering the product title is a '2.5"' HDD, that is a typo.  They happen from time to time.

 

Actually, the 2.5-inch dimension refers to the size (radius) of the actual platter inside the HDD.  The dimensions on all internal notebook HDDs is going to say 2.8 x 3.9 x x.xx (where x can vary from model to model).  That is the size of the standard notebook HDD shell.
