PS4: Still Unable To Play My MP3 Music While Gaming

[ Edited ]

I was so excited about patch 1.70, until I found out I still can't play my CD based music in the background while playing Battlefield 4.   

 

I remember Sony's president making that comment that "We didn't release it without support to make people buy services such as Music Unlimited".    I took him at his word on that but it did not arrive with patch 1.70, which involves MP3 files and other files for share factory, so I am hoping that this feature is in a future patch or planned.   I want my PS4 doing the things my PS3 can!

 

Anyone else bothered by this and want to vent?    You can try and make me feel better but it will not work, the only thing that will make me happy is having this same abilty I have with games like warhawk, starhawk, and dust514 on my PS3 for games like BF4 and KZ Shadowfall on my PS4.

That would make me feel better as long as the music player lets me plug my USB with 2000 songs on it into my PS4 and download them to my PS4 for playback while gaming!

I am not to awfully butt hurt as of now.  Ask me again after this summer however and I might change my tune a bit.  The more media features the better as far as I am concerned.

I personally have someone on my friends list testing the Music Player Smiley Wink!



Hopefully that means they are working on it for the next update. I'm still waiting for friend login notifications and background color changes. Sounds so simple.... :-/

Funny thing is people want mp3 and video support. 8/10 of those people probably pirated the content.

But yeah. Still bring the features. As long as it doesnt implode the ps4 then more is better.

Use a **bleep** radio or stereo system goddammit.  

If you play the music loud enough, you'll hear it fine through the headset, if you're using one. 

Too bad if you don't live in a detached house ( or whatever they call them in the US ).

That's what I do. Smiley Very Happy

 

But people would prefer mp3 during in game as well. This fitted in well with games that had this option on the PS3.
